Workshop 1: Opto-electronics and Nanophotonics

The workshop will focus on the physics and applications of nano-photonics and photodetectors based on graphene, related 2d materials, and heterostructures of those. A wide range of physical phenemona are being explored such as plasmonics, carrier dynamics, carrier cooling, energy transfer, non-local response, valley physics etc. These phenomena are often key for the understanding and development of novel device concepts for applications such as photodetectors and modulators.

Workshop 2: Biosensors and Medical Applications

The workshop will be focused on the latest advances in developing graphene-based biosensors (optical, electrical etc), toxicity issues of GRMs as well as their latest developments in nanomedicine and medical applications such as tissue engineering, electrodes for brain, drug delivery, and so forth. Integration of graphene into innovative (bio)sensing systems will lead to high sensitive, high selective and cost-effective analysis and monitoring in fields like medicine, environment, security and other industries. The workshop aims to discuss bio applications facing the requirements set within the context of industrial research.

Workshop 3: Theory & Simulation    

This workshop aims at presenting the state of the art in advanced modelling of structurally and chemically modified forms of graphene and related materials (GRMs). Emphasis will be given to simulations of GRM devices, including transistors, chemical sensors, NEMS, just to cite a few. From novel theoretical concepts to ultimate developments in first-principles calculations, an overall picture of recent achievements/breakthroughs and research prospective will be targeted, including electronic, transport, optical, thermal and mechanical properties.

Workshop 4: Energy

Devices for storing and converting energy, including batteries, supercapacitors, solar and fuel cells, as well as for water splitting and thermoelectricity often benefit from having materials with a large surface area. When combined with a high surface reactivity, high conductivity, or useful optical properties, graphene and related materials (GRMs) become of notable interest for a range of energy applications. This workshop aims to highlight the latest advances and development in the use of GRMs for energy conversion and storage, outlining the stumbling blocks for industrial applications and benchmarking to other technologies.

Workshop 5: Mechanical properties and Nanomechanics

The workshop will focus on the latest advances on nano-mechanical systems based on graphene and other two-dimensional systems. Nano-mechanical systems provide a new and versatile platform for fundamental science and applications. It opens new possibilities in the exploration of a broad range of physical phenomena, such as mechanical nonlinearities, out-of-equilibrium phenomena, dissipation, and noise. Advances in measurements also allows to investigate the unique mechanical properties of monolayer systems. In addition, nano-mechanical systems are fantastic sensors of mass, force, and spin, holding promise for applications.
Workshop 6: Spintronics & Valleytronics

The workshop will focus on the current progress of graphene technology to achieve long spin diffusion lengths, and the current state of the art concerning the interaction between magnetism and spin-orbit coupling as main sources of spin relaxation, issues concerning the observation of spin Hall effects, quantum spin Hall effects or valley Hall effects (including coupling valley and spin degree of freedoms through optical excitations), as well as the quest towards harvesting proximity effects using van der Waals interaction between 2D materials. Low dimensional spin transport will be also addressed.


A series of targeted talks given by Invited speakers will be followed by oral contributions selected from the Graphene 2017 submissions on all workshops mentioned above.
