Welcome to the 2nd International Workshop on 2D Materials


Welcome to the 2nd 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. The 1st International Workshop on 2D Materials has been successfully held in Tokyo organized by Prof. Yoshihiro Iwasa from the University of Tokyo In Nov. 2018. This is the second event of the A3 foresight Program and will be organized by Nanjing university in Nanjing, China from Feb. 20 to Feb. 23 in 2019.    

The main activities in this A3 program are 

- Triannual seminars (one per each country per year) including one or two school-format  

- Support of young researchers’ exchange and international collaborations 


The purpose of this workshop is that all the members will be acquainted with each other, stimulate discussions on the forefront of research and find some seeds for future collaboration researches.  

We sincerely hope that the scope of the workshop will serve the interest of the A3 foresight program and the scientific community.  


Wish you a stimulating workshop and interactions in Nanjing.
