Graphene has been highlighted in nanotechnology news over the last few months.  I would like to share with you an opportunity to participate in one of the first graphene webinars.

Graphene-enabled Electrical & Electronic Products Web Workshop

hosted by IEC TC113
Monday, October 15th
9am-4pm PDT

All members of the nanotechnology community that have knowledge of graphene (terminology, characterization), or graphene-enabled components or products are invited to participate.  You will be able to join the WebEx online meeting using the details below.  After you join the online meeting, information related to the teleconference numbers will be provided to you.

Expectations: We hope to emerge from the workshop with much more detail related to graphene and its applications.  This information will inform standards development organizations such as the IEC TC113 as they write standards related to graphene.  Those standards are expected to help accelerate the use of graphene in the marketplace.

The agenda will be generally as follows:
– Introduction to Workshop (purpose, detailed agenda, ground rules)
– Terminology (terms to be defined, brain-storming)

– Graphene-based components and products (discuss use cases related to graphene)

– Characterization of graphene (what, how, when, roadmap)
– Nanoscale Contacts and Nanoscale Interconnects (successes, issues, specifications)
– Future Work Items and Action Items (standards efforts, future research needed, feedback)

There will be a break mid-morning and mid-afternoon, and one hour for lunch. (in the PDT zone)

If you plan to participate, and wish to share any documents with the group, you will be able to do that in the WebEx format.  The host will guide you through the process during the meeting.

The web workshop will be recorded via WebEx, and will be made available to all attendees.  This will provide participants with access to any documents presented, as well as audio discussions.

You are invited to participate, especially if you work with graphene, or are involved in the development of components or products that use graphene, such as: nano-inks; printed electronics; semiconductors; transparent electrodes; touch screens; displays; coatings/paints; or other applications.
