Vladimir Fal’ko is condensed matter theorist responsible for many advances in the theory of electronic and optical properties of two-dimensional materials, in particular, graphene, theory of localisation and theory of quantum transport in mesoscopic systems. His current research interests include modelling of graphene-based electronic and optoelectronic systems and development of theories of electronic and optical properties of various atomically thin two-dimensional crystals and their heterostructures. His career has been marked by Humboldt Fellowship, EPSC Advanced Fellowship, ERC Advanced Investigator and Synergy Grants, and Royal Society Wolfson Foundation Research Merit Award. Falko played a pivotal role in building up the European research community in graphene and two-dimensional materials by setting the ‘Graphene Week’ conference series and by organising numerous international conference in this field, and he is the founding Editor-in-Chief of the IoP Journal ‘2D Materials’. Falko is, currently Director of the National Graphene Institute and Professor of Condensed Matter Theory at the University of Manchester, and he is one of the leaders of the European Graphene Flagship Project.

Prof. Dr. Edward Y. Chang received his B.S. degree from Materials Science and Engineering, National Tsing Hua University, Hsinchu, Taiwan in 1977, and his Ph.D. degree from Materials Science and Engineering, University of Minnesota Minneapolis, MN in 1985 Dr. Chang was with Unisys Corporation GaAs Component Group, Eagan, MN, 1985 to 1988 and Comsat Labs Microelectronic Group from 1988 to 1992. He worked on the GaAs MMIC programs on both groups. He joined National Chiao Tung University (NCTU), Hsinchu, Taiwan, in 1992. In 1994, he helped set up the first GaAs MMIC production line in Taiwan, and become president of Hexawave Inc., Hsinchu, Taiwan, in 1995. He returned to the teaching position at NCTU in 1999. Dr. Chang is currently the Dean of Research and Development and professor of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and Dept of Elecrical Engineering at NCTU. He is also the director of Diamond Lab and the director of NCTU-TSMC research center.

Adem Beriso is highly interested in technology of nanomaterials since his specialization in the field in 2010 from Addis Ababa University, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. He devoted a lot of work and time in the field, specially the application of nanotechnology in every sector. His recent work on ‘early cancer detection and treatment with nanotechnology’ is one of his striking work in cancer with connection to nanotechnology as he received and receiving a lot of request (invitation) message as speaker in their conferences, for publication in the form of book, related work for free publication in their publisher companies etc. currently, he is working research on the application of nanomaterials in environmental as well as energy sectors in his work place, Madda University.
