The synthesis just over a decade ago of free-standing graphene, a one-atom thick two-dimensional (2D) graphitic sheet, was a revolution in materials physics. Since then the field has blossomed with the discovery of a host of other free-standing 2D materials (transition metal-dichalcogenides, hexagonal boron-nitride, and so on) that can be stacked in different order and orientations to create 2D layered materials with remarkable properties. Moreover, surface functionalization offers the possibility of physically or chemically interfacing 2D materials with other nanoscale building blocks for unconventional nanocomposites. Thus, 2D materials and 2D-based nanostructures offer exciting possibilities for the creation of multifunctional nanostructures with applications ranging from materials design to energy and the environment. This symposium aims to bring together theoretical and experimental researchers interested in the development and application of methods required to uncover new behaviors and properties of 2D materials. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Fabrication, characterization and testing of 2D and 2D-based nanostructures;

• Atomistic and Multiscale computational methods for 2D materials;

• Properties of incommensurate 2D materials;

• Buckling of 2D materials: ripples, wrinkles, and bubbles;

• Interfacial properties of 2D materials (van der Waals interactions and beyond);

• Defects and fracture of 2D materials;

•Tribology and wear of 2D materials;

• Structural phase transition in 2D materials;

• Graphene and graphene oxide based nanocomposites.

• Thermo, electro and opto-mechanical properties of 2D materials
