[Sponsored by Warwick Physics Department and the Warwick Centre for Analytical Science]
The fascinating and superlative electrical, mechanical and optical properties of graphene have been well documented over the last seven years since its isolation by Geim and Novoselov. Graphene is entirely surface; this presents one of the great challenges and opportunities for its application. Any atomic or molecular species present on the graphene surface can profoundly influence its properties. The interactions with graphene can be essentially non-invasive, such as charge transfer altering the carrier concentration, or significantly disrupt the local electronic and physical structure. The interaction between atomic and molecular species and graphene are thus of fundamental interest. The induced changes are also of technological relevance; for driving self-assembly, understanding environmental effects on graphene devices, device engineering through doping, and chemical sensing. Graphene is also an exceptional support material for inspection of nanomaterials by STM and TEM, and hence provides a platform for the study of atomic and molecular interactions on graphene. The addition of functional groups to graphene, e.g. through the use of graphene oxide or other chemically modified graphenes, adds an extra level of complexity and control. This workshop will explore the possibilities of using high-resolution microscopy and modelling to understand graphene, graphene analogues, and atomic and molecular interactions on graphene at an atomic level.

Participation is by invitation only. Please contact email@example.com if you think this workshop is interesting. Normally, we would be happy to accept self-invitations, but will not be able to pay for any expenses in this case. All members of Warwick Physics (and Chemistry!) are welcome to attend, but please let us know if you will be around for the refreshments so that we can get the numbers correct.
The symposium will start Friday 2nd December 2011 at 10:30 a.m. at the University of Warwick. Note that the university is located at the outskirts of Coventry and not in Warwick. See http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/about/visiting/ for travel details and http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/about/visiting/maps/ for maps of the central campus. In case you come by car, parking is available for delegates at car park 15 (pick up a blue token from the car park and hand it to the secretaries in Physics).

The workshop will be held in the new Materials and Analytical Science building (number 37 on the campus map), which is situated between the Physics and Chemistry Departments. To gain access to the building you need a card, either go to the Science concourse that connects Physics and Chemistry, or ask the secretaries (5th floor) in Physics. All talks will be held in the Seminar Room of the Materials and Analytical Science building.
The workshop will start with the registration at the University of Warwick. Note that the university is located at the outskirts of Coventry and not in Warwick.

Accommodation for invited speakers will be provided at (Scarman House) please contact Neil Wilson (Neil.Wilson@Warwick.ac.uk) to get this arranged.
In case you are self-invited, please call the conference centre directly and arrange your stay.
