Nowadays, the fundamental research and commercialization of two-dimensional (2D) materials: graphene, are blooming. Globally, China and many major developed countries/regions have formulated important strategic layouts for the future development of graphene materials and their application. According to China’s thirteenth Five-Year National Plan, graphene-represented nano-functional materials, are explicitly proposed to preferentially develop.
In order to further promote the development of graphene based nano-carbon materials and other 2D materials in China and globally, the 2018 International Forum on Graphene in Shenzhen will be held during 11-14 April 2018. The conference is co-chaired by Prof. Hui-Ming Cheng (Member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences) and Prof. Feiyu Kang, co-organized by China Association for Science and Technology, Shenzhen Science Technology and Innovation Commission, and co-hosted by the Graduate School at Shenzhen and Tsinghua-Berkeley Shenzhen Institute, Tsinghua University.
Since the first conference was held in 2014, this is the 5th high-level international one in Shenzhen, which will concentrate on graphene, novel 2D materials and other nano-carbon materials. Many world renowned experts and entrepreneurs from China, USA, Europe, Korea, Singapore, Japan, etc., will present their excellent research work and discuss the industrialization on the above mentioned materials. Therefore, the conference will function as an exchange and corporation platform for those distinguished Chinese and abroad scientists, policy makers and entrepreneurs in the related fields.
The Nobel Prize winner, Prof. Andre Geim, one of the graphene discoverers; Prof. Young Hee Lee, Korea; Prof. Paul Weiss, USA; Prof. Klaus Müllen Germany, and other famous experts will deliver Plenary and Keynote talks. Noticeably, the series of forums is a domestic high-level academic and industrial Symposium with the theme of graphene in China, which plays an important role in not only promoting the current research and industrialization of graphene in China, but also providing a reference for the future industrial development of graphene.
