Keynote & Plenary Speakers

Keynote Speakers

Date & Time 19/07/03 14:00~14:45 Place Grand Ballroom (3F)
Speaker Soon-Kook Hong  CV
AffiliationLG Electronics / Materials & Production engineering Research Institute
TitleThe Role of Nano Technology for the Future Electronics Industry
At the national level, the importance of nano technology / industry is emphasized in order to cope with future social change preemptively and to secure future core capability.
We will look into ways to strengthen the industrialization capability of the nano industry and suggest future directions through LG cases.

Date & Time 19/07/03 14:45~15:30 Place Grand Ballroom (3F)
Speaker Yury Gogotsi  CV
AffiliationDrexel University, USA
TitleTwo-Dimensional Building Blocks for the Future Materials and Devices
2D materials, like MXenes and graphene, provide attractive building blocks for future materials and devices, because they can be assembled, just like bricks in the wall, into structures with properties and functions that are impossible in conventional materials. Those bricks are one billionth of a meter in height and can be used to produce flexible and wearable devices integrating electronics, energy harvesting and storage, thus creating self-powered internet of things and wearable internet. Other applications include energy storage, optoelectronics, plasmonics, electromagnetic interference shielding, antennas, electrocatalysis, medicine, sensors, and water purification/desalination.

Plenary Speakers

Date & Time 19/07/04 13:00~13:45 Place Room 306 + 307
Speaker Arjun G. Yodh  CV
AffiliationUniversity of Pennsylvania, USA
TitleBiophotonics with Diffuse Light: Basic Ideas, Status, and Opportunities
Non-invasive diffuse optical tissue monitoring and imaging is growing in impact because of its demonstrated potential for probing brain function/injury and for characterization of cancer/cancer-response-to-therapy, among other clinical applications. Using examples from my lab, I will review the key diffuse optical methods [1] and describe progress applying diffuse optics to measure hemodynamics, metabolism, and autoregulation in brain and breast tissues. Brain studies demonstrate potential for bedside treatment management in the neuro-ICU; breast studies demonstrate potential for cancer therapy monitoring. I will also discuss opportunities for nanoscience and nanotechnology in this context.

Date & Time 19/07/04 17:30~18:15 Place Room 306 + 307
Speaker Yang Shao-Horn  CV
AffiliationMassachusetts Institute of Technology, USA
TitleEnergy Storage : Current and Future
Electrochemistry is used widely today, spanning from production of hydrogen and metals such as aluminum, and Li-ion batteries. We will discuss challenges and opportunities in using electrochemistry to store cheap electrons in materials and molecules with energy from the Sun. Recent learnings towards establishing design principles in controlling electrocatalysis, and ion mobility, central to the functions of electrochemical devices, will be presented.
