General Information

2D Materials is an international congress that will bring together hundreds of researchers working with 2D materials in various fields of science and technology. 2D Materials 2019 will be the hub for researchers working in the fields of nanoscience, nanotechnology and related topics, providing a great opportunity for accessing the most up-to-date and authoritative knowledge from both academic and commercial worlds, sharing best practice in the field of 2D materials. The conference will take place in the Sochi Olympic Park, Sochi, the host city of the Winter Olympics-2014, FIFA World Cup 2018, annual Russian Grand Prix of the Formula One World Championship and famous for its spectacular mountains and sea views.

The conference is organized by the Center for Photonics & 2D Materials, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT, in 2010, two MIPT alumni, Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics "for ground-breaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene") and is supported by Russian scientific organizations and foundations.

The Congress consists of daily plenary presentations followed by parallel sessions comprising a rigorously refereed selection of submitted papers and posters for which abstracts are currently invited: Abstract deadline 20 July 2019.

The conference program is under construction right now but the preliminary program is as follows:

Special session on Terahertz (THz) technologies will be focused on the discussion of fundamental and applied problems related to the generation and detection of sub-THz and THz radiation as well as its interaction with matter. Our aim is to bring together internationally known experts in the THz field to consider the most critical theoretical and technological insights, discoveries and new fundamental and practical applications. The technical session will cover a wide range of topics including but not limited to photoconductive pulsed and CW emitters/detectors, quantum-cascade lasers, new appearing approaches in THz spectroscopic and imaging systems and other.

Quantum Technologies and Quantum Materials

Organizers: Alex Fedorov

Special session on Quantum technologies and quantum materials will be concentrated on problems of revealing, characterizing, and utilizing specific properties of quantum systems on the level of their individual constituents for developing a new generation of devices and designing new materials. The idea behind this session is to bring together leading experts for the consideration the results of the most advanced studies in the field of quantum technologies as well as for the review recent achievements for the potential applications. This special session will cover the most important topics of quantum technologies that include quantum information processing, quantum sensing, and quantum material design.
