Pre-summit Tutorial on Thursday, November 5, 2020:
Graphene Tutorial:  From the Lab to the Marketplace - presented by Steve Rodgers, EmergenTek
7:00 am Pacific Standard Time (PST) / 16:00 Central European Time (CET)

In 2014, the New Yorker asked the question, “Graphene may be the most remarkable substance ever discovered. But what’s it for?" While the folks at SAMPE were delighted to see graphene become popular enough with the mainstream public to merit space in such an important periodical, that question still lingers, even amongst the most contemporary material and process engineering circles of our day. Join SAMPE’s select group of world-renowned experts for a lively three-day summit and a free pre-summit tutorial where we’ll tackle the question, ‘what’s it for’ and many more:

  • What is real and what is just hype?
  • How immediate is the marketplace?
  • How can it impact my business?
  • Is it prohibitively expensive?
  • How do I make sound business decisions?
  • Is it dangerous or are there processing concerns?

Who Should Attend

Whether you are in Corporate Management, Engineering, R&D, Manufacturing Supervision, or a Processing Technician, if you’ve ever even thought about graphene, this summit is for you. Whatever your role, SAMPE is the society famous for bringing together academia and industry that result in real-world solutions. Join us for programming and networking.
