Dear Colleagues,

The 6th International Symposium on Graphene Devices (ISGD-6), the principal meeting addressing advanced graphene applications, is offering a unique forum to review the present status, the latest developments, future prospects and related fundamental studies, covering both state-of-the-art experimental and theoretical discoveries.

ISGD-6 will be held at Conference center of ITMO University, St. Petersburg, Russia on 18-21 July, 2018. Saint Petersburg is the second largest city in Russia, and is considered by many to be Russia's most culturally and architecturally Western city. Once the capital of Russia, Saint Petersburg is home to a great number of world famous museums and historical sites, including the Hermitage Museum, Saint Isaac's Cathedral and the Grand Cascade at Peterhof...

The venue continues a biennial series of symposiums initiated in  Aizu, Japan (2008) and went through Sendai, Japan (2010), Saint Aubin, France (2012), Seattle, USA (2014), and most recently in Brisbane, Australia (2016).

Looking forward to welcoming you in St.Petersburg!

Alexander Lebedev (Chair), Ioffe Institute, ITMO University, Russia
