European Science Foundation: Graphene Week 2011

This years European Science Foundation Graphene Week 2011: Fundamental Science of Graphene and Applications of Graphene-Based Devices, being held this April 24 thru April 29, 2011 near Innsbruck, Austria, will include Andre Geim as Chair! ( A recent paper in Science on results of a team led by Geim has shown evidence of electron flow magnetizing graphene… providing a huge potential boost to spintronic computing ).

Sponsored by the ESF, in partnership with the Leopold-Franzens-Universität Innsbruck, and EuroGRAPHENE, and is a big one. Visit the ESF Conference Website for more information on Registration, the Full and Final Schedule of Talks, travel details, and more.

Some details (may change):

Chaired by:

– Andre Geim, University of Manchester, UK
– Vladimir Falko, Lancaster University, UK
– Sankar Das Sarma, University of Maryland, US
– Karsten Horn, Fritz-Haber-Institut Berlin, DE
