4th Edition of the European Graphene Forum 2018
2018-10-23 to 2018-10-25
Venice, Italy

Graphene, the single layer carbon based material, is transparent, flexible, and has excellent electronic properties. As it is called “the dream material,” graphene holds innumerable application potential. It is a material that still requires consistent research and at the same time it is a material that may hold the key to future electronics revolution with unlimited industrial value.

The 4th Edition European Graphene Forum will be organized in Venice (Italy) from the 23rd until the 25th October 2018. This event will cover the latest technology developments, applications, commercialization progress, end user requirements and challenges for Graphene and 2D Materials. Don't miss on this great opportunity to explore the graphene potential.

European Graphene Forum - EGF 2018 will feature:

International Organization for Biological Crystallization
2018-10-27 to 2018-11-02
Shanghai, China
The International Organization for Biological Crystallization (IOBCr) is a non-profit, scientific organization for scientists who study the crystallization of biological macromolecules and develop crystallographic methodologies for their study. It was founded in 2002 to create a permanent organ for the organization of the International Conferences for the Crystallization of Biological Macromolecules (ICCBM). The goal is to facilitate the preparation of biological crystals necessary for the determination of the 3D architecture of biomolecules by crystallography. These 3D pictures provide a wealth of information that help understand how biomolecules act and interact in living organisms.
