European workshop on graphene  

Coordinated by the Cnr-Institute for microelectronics and microsystems and University of L'Aquila, Graphita will be held at the Gran Sasso National laboratories (Lngs-Infn) on May 15-18, 2011 and will host Kostya Novoselov, winner of the 2010 Nobel prize in physics, as one of keynote invited speakers

In the latest years graphene based research has witnessed a tremendous explosion. This two dimensional 'dream' material has come into the main spotlight of fundamental and applied research in diverse nano-science fields, but surprisingly rapidly, it has also attracted the interest of major stakeholders in the private sector (especially industries in the Ict sector). The technological exploitation of graphene can be considered to be based on four fundamental interconnected wide topics: growth and synthesis methods, nano-structuring and tailoring of graphene properties, structural and physical characterization, and device design and applications.

It will gather scientists and engineers working on different scientific fields (physics, chemistry and biotechnology) of graphene in a multidisciplinary and multisectorial (academia/industry) environment. The focus will be on the following forefront topics in graphene research: growth and synthesis, investigation of fundamental properties, nano-structuring and tailoring of electronic and transport properties, nano- and opto-electronic devices design and applications, mechanical chemical and biological sensing devices and applications, and finally energy storage and harvesting applications.

Participation of early stage researchers, PhD students and post-docs is strongly encouraged. Abstract submission deadline is 21 February 2011.
