Canadian Graphene Conference Set for October 18-20 in Montreal

The Graphene Canada conference is set for Montreal, Quebec on October 18th to 20th at the Centre Mont-Royal.

The conference is organized by Spanish company, Phantoms Foundation, which specializes in scientific conferences/workshops on Nanoscience & Nanotechnology.  It’s why the Canadian conference registration fees are in Euros. One of the founders of Phantoms Foundation, Dr. Antonio Correia, is also one of the invited speakers. Forty speakers are presenting at the conference but only ten are from Canada. Eighteen are from Europe, seven are from Asia and five from USA.

The ten Canadian speakers represent eight universities and one company. Universities represented include Queen’s University, University of Western Ontario, University of Toronto, McGill University, University of Ottawa, Université Laval, Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, University of Waterloo.

Areas of interest based on Abstracts are as follows:

Aiping Yu (University of Waterloo, Canada)
