In 2016, the 27th edition of the International Conference on Diamond and Carbon Materials will be held in Montpellier, France. The meeting will continue to feature high level research on a wide range of carbon-based materials. Besides the traditional focus on diamond, carbon nanotubes, and graphene, novel materials like carbon nanodots and carbon nitrides are expected to play a more prominent role. This meeting traditionally spans the complete spectrum from materials preparation, over fundamental physical and chemical concepts, to applied research zooming in novel device concepts making use of the remarkable properties of carbon materials. Through the DCM Young Scholar Award, the participation of the next generation of scientists is highly encouraged, creating a vibrant forum where scientists from all over the world can meet to discuss and exchange their latest cutting-edge results on diamond and carbon materials.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Deposition and in-situ doping of diamond
  • Physical and chemical preparation methods of carbon materials such as carbon nanotubes, graphene, etc.
  • Diamond devices for power electronics, optoelectronics and sensors
  • Defect engineering in diamond: quantum applications, novel sensors, etc.
  • Carbon nanodots and particles
  • Carbon-based heterostructures with novel oxide and nitride materials
  • Principles of carbon surface physics and chemistry for energy harvesting and storage
  • Device concepts using novel carbon materials for electronics, sensors, etc.
