Graphene 2012 International Conference, organized by Phantoms Foundation, Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Institut Català de Nanotecnologia (ICN) and Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS), gathered more than 600 persons from the 10th to 13th of April in Belgium (Brussels). The event attracted the Graphene community, including researchers, industry, policymakers and investors.
The plenary session and the extensive thematic workshops allowed presenting the latest trends in the field and the global Graphene technology revolution. Companies and institutions also promoted their products/services, technologies and know-how, intent on finding commercial and technology partners and discussed new project ideas during the exhibition and the brokerage event (one-to-one meetings).

Graphene 2012 in numbers:
- 600 Participants from 41 countries
- 27 Exhibitors in the field
- 200 posters
- More than 100 speakers
- Top seven countries: United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, Spain, France, Russia and United States.

This year edition proves that Graphene 2012 is now an established European event, attracting global participant’s intent on sharing, exchanging and exploring new avenues of graphene-related scientific and commercial developments.

The 3rd edition of Graphene Conference
will be held next spring under the umbrella of ImagineNano event in Spain, along with 5 other conferences (Nanospain, NanoBio&Med, Energy, Optics/Photonics and Security&Defense).

  Graphene Flagship Session

The consortium of the Graphene Flagship Pilot Action is working to establish the “Graphene Science and Technology Roadmap” which will be presented to the European Commission and Member States to demonstrate the need for securing long term funding, coordinated through a new Graphene Alliance. The Graphene Flagship Pilot Action will take advantage of the International conference Graphene 2012 in Brussels to co-organize a specific session in order to timely deliver to the European community the results of this Roadmap.

Tentative program

a. “Graphene Flagship: working together to combine scientific excellence and technological impacts”: Jari Kinaret
b. “The Graphene Science and Technology Roadmap": Vladimir Falko and Andrea Ferrari
c. “Korean Graphene Research and Roadmap”: Byung Hee Hong
d . “Japanese Graphene Research and Roadmap”: Masataka Hasegawa
Round Table (tentative): Luigi Colombo, Gabriel Crean, Andrea Ferrari, Albert Fert, David Guedj, Francisco Guinea, Byung Hee Hong, Jari Kinaret, Matthias Schwab, Klaus von Klitzing, and Ken Teo

   Graphene 2012 Scope

Graphene is a two-dimensional monolayer of sp² bonded carbon atoms in a dense honeycomb crystal structure which behaves electronically as a zero-gap semiconductor. Its discovery in 2004 has sparked a considerable scientific activity that has now established a broad international community with interest in both fundamental properties of a unique material, together with a wealth of foreseen applications in fields as nanoelectronics (high-frequency devices,..), electromechanics, optics, photonics, sensing, NEMS,…Exceptional electronic properties of this material, resulting in carrier mobilities as large as several thousands of  cm²/Vs,  make this   material   at  the  heart  of  the   alternatives  for  the   so-called

beyond-CMOS nanoelectronics research. The current carrying capability of graphene is orders of magnitude higher than that of metals. Additionally, graphene is CMOS compatible and can be handled by standard planar technology, which should result in highest integration of device density in the medium run. Graphene devices are also believed to work at much lower supply voltages and should therefore result in lower power consumption. Therefore graphene has the potential to increase computing performance, functionality and communication speed far beyond the expected limits of conventional CMOS technology, which is related with large financial markets in the microelectronics business.

Additionally, the reports of novel functionalities in graphene devices such as sensing capability, electro-mechanical effects (e.g. resonators) and spintronics effects also profile some new perspectives for innovative applications. Those salient features will be at the heart of GRAPHENE 2012 that will present the state of the art of the field.
