STM publisher Elsevier, Netherlands, has announced that the European Conference of Diamond and Related Materials will now be known as the International Conference on Diamond and Carbon Materials.
The name change recognises the global diversity of the conference attendees and speakers. The conference committee comprises an international group of scientists. Also, the conference’s audience consists of a broad range of nationalities, both from academia and industry. It will continue to take place annually and is organised in collaboration with Elsevier’s journal Diamond and Related Materials. This year’s conference will be held from September 2-6 in Granada, Spain.
The change also reflects a broadening of the scope of the conference beyond diamond materials. The conference’s scope now reflects new directions in diamond and carbon materials, including new ideas and technologies. This year’s conference will engage scientists working in related areas to join the debate about where this field is leading.
The conference accepts abstracts for oral and paper presentations in the topics of diamond, graphene, carbon nano-tubes, fullerenes, diamond-like-carbon, amorphous carbon, graphite, and organic conductors. As in past years, accepted papers will be published in the Elsevier journal, Diamond and Related Materials. Abstract submissions should be made through the online abstract submission system at www.diamond-conference.elsevier.com. The deadline for abstract submission is on or before March 16, 2011.
