Programme - Oral Sessions

Material Science & Technology
The global materials industry is expected to reach US$10 trillion in size in 2018 by recording an annual average growth rate of 5.2%. In addition, materials’ contribution to high-tech industries amounted to 70% in the ICT sector, 60% in environmental technology and 50% in biotech last year. In other words, product quality and industrial competitiveness hinge on materials these days. Therefore, materials science and technology has been enormously promoted in order to develop novel materials by means of unprecedented research methodology in which creative ideas and hi-tech are combined with each other. In the sessions, it is aimed to serve an excellent stage for the examination of emerging materials research and development. • Session 1 – Graphene and 2D materials: Fundamentals and applications (combined with Basic Science 1) • Session 2 – Electronic materials and related devices (combined with Basic Science 2) • Session 3 – Emerging materials for smart technology • Session 4 – Solar energy materials • Session 5 – (Special Session) • Poster Session

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
Smart technology is a term of intelligent devices and systems that are capable of sensing, learning and judging automatically and modify behaviour to fit environment. The technology ubiquitously connected from materials and devices to the systems. This will lead the technology to be a core of 4th industry revolution combining with big-data analysis as a next generation leading technology. In this session, the emerging materials towards smart devices and systems from, for example, the energy saving/or storage units such as a smart window, the displays/touch screen, and the bio-inspired devices are presented to overview promising future technology.

Synopsis
Currently, human beings are consuming 13 TW of energy, in which 81% is based on combustion of fossil fuels. Along with the fast depletion of fossil fuels, the use of carbon-based fuels inevitably produces air pollution and greenhouse gases. To solve this conflict between energy demand and ecological issues, sustainable and clean technologies for energy production are required. Sun provides 171 000 TW energy on the surface of the earth, thus utilizing only 0.01% of it will be just enough to meet the whole need of energy by human beings. In this context, developing a system which can convert the photon energy to chemical or electrical energy is of great importance for the solar flux utilization. In this session we discuss about recent progresses on solar energy conversion materials, especially on organic/hybrid solar cells and artificial photosynthesis for solar fuel production. This session will be a great opportunity for knowledge sharing between multidisciplinary research fields and concerted networking among various scientists in energy and material science. Therefore we may provide new directions for development and research for the future energy technology.
