FAQ


Below is a summary of frequently asked questions and topics which might be interesting for you:


Is the Graphene Study scheduled for European countries only?

No. Graphene Study is the international school on graphene and 2D materials, organised by the Graphene Flagship. The school's registration system is based on the first-come, first-served principle.


What languages are spoken?

Graphene Study is an international school and all conference communication and tutorial programme are in English.


What is included in the delegates fee?

Delegate fee covers costs for the tutorial programme as well as daily and social activities packages:
  • Access to all scientific sessions
  • Conference material
  • Accommodation in shared rooms
  • Full board: breakfast, coffee break, lunch and dinner
  • Wi-Fi connection
  • Welcome reception
  • Farewell dinner
  • Social activities


Which registration category are you in?

The registration system provides the choice between three categories, that influence the registration fee rates:
  • Student: includes Bachelor, MSc and PhD students
  • Academic: graduated PhDs, Postdoctoral, Professors (full, associate and assistant), Principal Investigators (PIs) and staff scientists
  • Industry: title comprises both early-stage and senior researchers from industries, other representatives of companies and commercial organisations

Who can apply for Students Grants?

Students or young researchers attending Graphene Study and presenting their research as posters (as first or second authors) can apply for student grants from the Graphene Flagship and SCOPE projects. Please read the application requirements closely and follow the instructions.

The purpose of this support programme is to promote the professional development of students and early career researchers in the field. It is considered as an important channel to develop the next generation of graphene and 2D materials researchers and a key element in the continuous renewal of the flagship community.

The selected students will receive a reduction on the delegate fee. The number of grants is limited. Incomplete or not eligible applications will not receive funding.


Does the Graphene Study provide any travel funds support?

No. The Graphene Flagship does not provide support for students traveling to the conferences. These costs should be managed through other sources.


How do I get an international visa invitation letter?

The invitation letter will include information about the event, its dates and place, confirmation of registration and accommodation. Please note that the invitation letter can only be issued after successful payment for the registration fee.

Write to event@graphene-flagship.eu, with the email subject Visa Letter Request.

Include in the email the following information:

Surname:
Given name:
Place of birth:
Date of birth:
Nationality:
Passport number:
Passport issue date:
Passport expiry date:
Affiliation: (organisation and address)

Shall your attendance to Graphene Study fail due to delay or rejection of the visa the registration fee will be compensated fully or partly following cancellation policy standards.


How is the accommodation organised?

Lecturers and delegates of Graphene Study will be accommodated at the venue/hotel. Delegates accommodation is provided in shared rooms and includes full board and Wi-Fi access.


Can family members attend the Graphene Study with me?

Graphene Study is a family friendly event – spouses and children are welcome. However due to the limited number of places each case has to be discussed separately with the organiser. Please contact graphenestudy@austropa.at for further information.

What is the scientific scope of the Graphene Study?

Graphene Study promotes knowledge exchange on graphene and related 2D materials research and applications. Each edition addresses a specific range of topics, which reflect the science and technology agenda of the Graphene Flagship.

The scientific scope of Graphene Study is available on the event webpage by its edition.

Who are the lecturers of the Graphene Study?

The lecturers of Graphene Study are scientific, technological or business experts, selected and invited by the organisers.

Find out more about the lecturers of the Graphene Study by checking the event webpage for each edition.


How are lectures organised?

We pay a significant attention to the tutorial nature of Graphene Study. In contrast with invited conference talks, lecturers are kindly requested not to restrict their course to own work but rather to critically present the state of the art of the subject.

Lecturers are asked to provide a list of references they consider essential for the matter of their course. The lectures and list of references will be available online for attendees.

Delegates are invited to contribute with comments after each lecture where 10 minutes for discussion are reserved.

Is it possible for me, being a young researcher, who has not finished research/wrote any paper about graphene, to attend Graphene Study?

Publication of papers on graphene and 2D materials is not criteria for the attendance to Graphene Study.

The course will introduce students and young researchers to the graphene science and technology. You will learn about the fundamentals of graphene as well as emerging practical applications for it. Topics covered include material properties, electronics, physics, physical chemistry, synthesis and device fabrication and application.

Please note that in order to benefit fully from this course you should have an adequate knowledge of physics, engineering science, mathematics and chemistry.

Do I have a possibility to present my research?

Delegates have the option to present their research in form of a poster. Please submit a poster title when registering for the conference.


Why is it important to participate in group activities?

The organiser encourages you to participate in all social events and share with other delegates more about your scientific background, your research interests, the institution you are affiliated with and your story with graphene and 2D materials. The goals of these activities are: inspiring creativity, develop networks and have fun, since individuals learn best through experience and joy.
