LAVOISIER discussions will focus on exchange about recent progress and challenges in modelling “exciton physics, thermal transport/thermoelectric and magnetic/spin proximity effects”. The participants will address recent advances in modelling excitons in two-dimensional materials, as well as the study of thermal transport and thermoelectrics in graphene and van der Waals heterostructures. The modelling and impact of proximity effects between magnetic, strong spin-orbit coupling and other 2D materials will be also the focus of the meeting.

The meeting will be framed within the LAVOISIER discussions organized by GDR graphene & nanotubes network ( with the support of ICN2 ( and the European centre of excellence MaX - Materials design at the Exascale (
