The Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) and the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2), both centres of the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST), are organizers of the Graphene 2017 conference. Both are world renowned for their expertise in graphene and 2D materials research and graphene related technologies. Frank Koppens (ICFO) and Stephan Roche (ICN2) are members of the Organizing Committee.
Underscoring the wealth of graphene research and development activity taking place in the Barcelona area in general, this year’s Graphene conference will take place from the 28th until the 31st of March 2017 at the Barcelona International Convention Center (CCIB).
This is the world’s largest graphene conference, bringing together both scientists and industry to work towards integrating new graphene technologies into current applications.
During this 4 day-long conference, around 1000 attendees will have the opportunity to listen to approximately 100 prestigious keynote and invited talks, more than 150 oral and around 400 posters presentations. The event will also create many networking opportunities for future collaborations. The top class speakers will include Prof. Albert Fert, awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics 2007 for the discovery of giant magnetoresistance, and Prof. Andre Geim, awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010 for his ground-breaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene.
Andreu Mas-Colell, President of BIST will also be at the conference.
