This meeting will focus on the physics and applications of graphene and related materials and will consist of about ten invited talks from international research leaders, plus some shorter papers and posters on late-breaking news. There will be ample time for lively and interactive discussions. The discovery of graphene and the recent award of a Nobel Prize to Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov is a timely demonstration of the power of university-based curiosity-driven research to advance science and technology in new and unexpected directions. It is also a powerful reminder to UK policy-makers to ensure that such research is protected in the present difficult economic climate.
