2D Materials beyond graphene

Following the discovery of Graphene, there is an avalanche of new developments on 2D and quasi-2D layered materials. The extra ordinary combination of physical and chemical properties shown by this new class of materials have brought noteworthy enthusiasm in diverse groups of scientists from condensed matter physics and materials science to device physics and biology. More recently, the scientific community has witnessed the emergence of topological insulators and Dirac materials, whose low-energy quasiparticles obey Dirac-like equations leading to several novel and unconventional properties and providing us with perfect test beds for studying Dirac physics on a tabletop. This symposium will be devoted to the basic as well as applied aspects of 2D layered materials. The program consists of invited and contributory talks and posters. It will also include some pedagogic and review talks, beneficial for young researchers.
