GraphITA 2015

InterNano - Upcoming Events - July 13, 2015 - 3:55pm
ConferenceSeptember 14, 2015 to September 18, 2015 http://graphita.bo.imm.cnr.it/ GraphITA lands back in Italy !! The fourth edition of the GraphX conference series, once again "GraphITA", will take place in Bologna (September 14-18 2015). GraphITA 2015 will follow three previous successful events: GRAPHEsp2014 (Lanzarote Spain), GrapHEL 2012 (Mikonos Greece), and GraphITA 2011 (L'Aquila, Italy). Since the seminal event of GraphITA 2011, graphene based research has witnessed an incredible expansion, which, for example, in Europe has culminated with the launch of the Graphene Flagship, one of the largest ever financed research initiative of the old continent. In particular, in the very last years, not only graphene but a wide class of 2D materials beyond graphene (Silicene, BN, MoS2) were attracting the interest of both research institutions and private stakeholders. GraphITA2015 aims at keeping the spirit of the previous editions, bringing together scientists and engineers working on different technological uses not only of graphene, but also of 2D materials beyond graphene, in a multidisciplinary and multisectorial (academia/industry) environment. As in the previous editions, participation of early stage researchers, PhD students and post-docs is strongly encouraged, with a particular care to all the emerging countries, south and east Europe.
