The 5th International Meeting on Silicene will be held in Orlando, Florida on December 15 and 16, 2015. Silicene is the silicon analog of graphene, which has attracted great interest in the past few years as it may provide a possibility to combine novel concepts, such as Dirac fermions and spintronics with the traditional silicon technology. As both theoretical and experimental works are rapidly increasing, many open questions still demand to be answered. The International Meeting on Silicene is aimed to stimulate discussions among researchers in this growing field, to establish collaborations and to bring more researchers into the fascinating silicene research.

  • Lectures by leading scientists in the field of Silicene to present advances at the forefront of the field.

  • The Meeting will be held at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

  • The topics of this meeting will cover all aspects of silicene, such as theoretical predictions and proposals, experimental fabrication, physics and chemistry properties, measurement of electronic and optical properties, devices and applications. The meeting also encourages researchers from relative research fields, such as graphene and other 2D materials, to stimulate new ideas by discussions in a broader while relevant field.
