Programme - Oral Sessions

Basic Science
Basic science aims at discovering new phenomena, understanding the microscopic principles and providing useful knowledge for future developments. For this, it is important to keep up-to-date with the latest progress, look at the problems from different perspectives, and establish international networks. To this end, Basic Science Group plans to bring together Korean and European Scientists and Engineers by organizing following sessions at EKC2018. At first, in the Poster Session, delegates from all research area of Basic Science (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Earth science, etc.) are invited to present their own research works, learn each other's expertise, and develop collaborative networks. In the Talk Sessions, experts and key persons in the selected research area (listed below) will introduce the field and discuss current main issues and new developments. - Session 1. Graphene and 2D Materials: Fundamentals and Applications (*connected with the session 2 below) - Session 2. Electronic materials and related devices (*organized by Material Science & Technology group) - Session 3. Metrology and Brain Processing: a Challenge for Industry 4.0 - Session 4. Water on Earth: Rain, River, and Ocean In addition to these sessions, delegates are also encouraged to participate in the sessions of their own interests organized by other Science & Technology Groups. Through these events, organizers of EKC2018 wish to provide an unparalleled opportunity for Korean and European Scientists and Engineers to establish a valuable and prolonged network.
[BS1 / MST1] Graphene and 2D Materials: Fundamentals and Applications
Date / Time 2018-08-22 11:00   --   12:40
Room R6
Conveners / Chairs
  • DR. KI, Dongkeun (Senior Research Associate, University of Geneva, Switzerland) CONVENER
Synopsis
Realized in only one or a few atomic thicknesses, 2D materials, such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides, possess excellent properties that are far from those of their parent bulk crystals. Due to these unique properties, they have drawn considerable interests over the last 10 years and the relevant research area is expanding at an impressive pace, encompassing everything from fundamental researches to industrial applications, from nano-electronic devices to large-scale aerospace applications, and so forth. Therefore, it is important to contemplate the future of these 2D materials from various perspectives. For this, we would like to bring together Korean and European experts in 2D materials from both fundamental and industrial sectors and hear about the recent progress and the future directions. Note that this session is closely linked with the Electronic Materials and Related Devices session organized by Material Science & Technology group.

Synopsis
Electronics materials including organic- and inorganic semiconductors, insulators, and conductors were the key sources to promote the electronics industry dramatically for last decades. Recently, state-of-the art nanotechnology emerged has been changing the paradigm of electronics and further expecting to play a role as a game changer in electronic industry by yielding, for example, nanomaterials such as superconductors, quantum dots, supercapacitors, nanowires, carbon nanotubes, low-dimensional semiconductors (graphene and 2D materials), nanocellulous, and etc. The emerging materials are promising for future technology in electronics, especially, related to the 4th industry revolution. In this session, issues from the emerging materials will be overviewed and discussed with related technologies including rigid, flexible, and wearable electronics.

Synopsis
Recently, Industry 4.0 has been the central issue of the Science and Technology in Korea. It is noted as one of the most important missions of The Ministry of Science and ICT and Korean mass media is frequently covering the related subjects in various contexts. Although many aspects need to be clarified, it is evident that developing new methods for the fast and accurate sensing or projections, and understanding how the brain processes different sensory information will be the key components for its success. In order to realize safe self-driving cars or more reliable Virtual Reality (VR) devices, for instance, it is essential to develop the new fast and accurate image detection or projection schemes as well as to establish the related standards. Furthermore, understanding fully and precisely how the brain processes sensory information is also the key for many applications. Note that all these technological requirements are at the foundations of the Industry 4.0. In this session, therefore, we will bring together the experts in Metrology and Standard, and Brain processing from both Korea and Europe, and hear about the recent progress in the field, their views of the Industry 4.0 and the future remaining missions for its success. Moreover, I expect the session to provide a good opportunity for the scientists from different backgrounds to develop their own ideas or collaborative works.
