Following the tradition of the EWEG/2D series, the 6th edition of the workshop  will provide a forum for the materials science community  to evaluate and discuss challenges and opportunities provided  by the class of 2D materials grown epitaxially on suitable substrates.

The focus will be on the broad  manifold of 2D materials  (graphene, boron nitride, phosphorene,  transition metal chalcogenides,  the new generation of 2D topological materials such as stanene, plumbene, bismuthene and tellurene, MXenes, oxides, nitrides and carbides) and on their derivatives based on  assemblies of different 2D layers disposed in plane or arranged in vertically stacked architectures. Also the properties featured by chemically or structurally engineered 2D layers will be addressed.

The  broad range of topics will include emerging research dealing with fundamental experimental and theoretical investigations of  growth, electronic and transport properties, magnetic and optical properties, spintronics, impact of strain and defects distributions, catalysis, energy harvesting and storage.
