Welcome to the 8th International Workshop on 2D Materials


Welcome to the 8th International Workshop on 2D Materials


This event is a part of activities of A3 Foresight Program

“Joint Research on Novel Physical Properties and Functionalities of Emerging 2D Materials and van der Waals Heterostructures”

which will last for five years from August 2018 to July 2023.


The Asia-Pacific region, including A3 countries (China, Japan, and Korea), has come to occupy an increasingly important position in the 2D materials researches. The purpose of this Project is to promote the exchange of young researchers and international collaborations, and to make the A3 countries a world-class center of excellence in the 2D materials science. We hope all the members can have a stimulate discussions on the forefront of research, share exciting ideas and find further collaboration among A3 PIs. The previous four A3 workshops have been successfully held in Tokyo, Nanjing, Seoul and Mastue (joint with RPGR).  


Our A3 activities have been unfortunately influenced by the global COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak and the on-line meetings have been organized to keep our A3 PIs and students communicating with each other. In view of the current global trend of Covid-19, our A3 conference will be held on-site in the domestic part, and the international part will still be held online (Zoom conference). We really appreciate Professor Yuanbo Zhang and his team from Fudan university for their great support and nice organization of the on-site and on-line conference.


We sincerely hope that the scope of this workshop will serve the interest of the A3 foresight program and the scientific community. Wish you a stimulating workshop and interactions via this on-line/on-site workshop on June 29 and 30 as well as on the extended day for student tutorials.
