This workshop will be devoted to the science and technology of graphene and related materials. It will encompass experimental and theoretical investigations of electronic properties of graphene, including its band structure, characterization, electronic transport and spintronics, as well as mechanical properties, growth methods, and preparation techniques of graphene-based devices. The workshop will consist of oral presentations by invited and contributing speakers, plus posters by contributing authors.
