Scope of Symposium

Owing to their extraordinary structural, electrical, mechanical, chemical, and optical properties, carbon nanotubes and graphene have become important building blocks in nanotechnology for a wide spectrum of applications, such as, nanoelectronics, energy devices, catalysis, and sensors. This symposium will serve as a platform to share the latest progresses and to promote new collaborations. The program will compose of invited lectures, oral presentations from selected abstracts, and poster presentations.

Symposium Topics

The objective of this symposium is to present up-to-date and highlights some of the key advances in the following topics:
  • Carbon nanotube and graphene synthesis
  • Characterization of CNTs and graphene
  • Novel methods for CNTs / graphene dispersion
  • CNTs separation 
  • Chemistry and functionalization of CNTs and graphene
  • Theoretical studies and modeling of CNTs and graphene 
  • Patterning of nanotubes
  • Fabrication and characterization of CNTs /garphene based nanoelectronic devices and sensors
  • CNTs / graphene based nanocomposites
  • Applications of novel CNTs / graphene based materials


The manuscripts of all those papers that are presented at the conference and accepted after peer review will be published online in “Procedia Engineering” by  Elsevier. Details for online submission of the manuscripts will be made available by concerned symposium chair while accepting the paper for presentation at the conference.
