Workshop 1: Growth of High Quality 2D Materials for Optoelectronics and Photonics

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: Chemistry 2DM

This workshop will focus on the progress of the chemical approaches towards graphene and related 2D materials. Top-down chemical exfoliation and bottom-up growth and synthesis of GRMs, as well as the chemical functionalization of GRMs with covalent and non-covalent approaches leading to tunable properties will be presented. Other topics including hierarchical hybrid structures, polymer composites, solution processing, electrocatalysis & photocatalysis, functional foams, membranes and coatings of GRMs will be also presented.

Workshop 3: Theory & Simulation    

This workshop aims at presenting recent theoretical advances and simulation studies of graphene, two-dimensional materials (2DM), as well corresponding vdW heterostructures. Emphasis will be given to new concepts such as valleytronics, spin gating and realistic simulations of 2DM devices, including transistors, chemical sensors. 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 and thermal transport, optoelectronics (excitonic and plasmonic effects) 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: 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.
