The Heyrovský Discussions have been organized during the last four decades every year by the J. Heyrovský Institute of Physical Chemistry, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. Each year a different field of electrochemistry is selected as the discussion theme. The total number of participants is limited to about 50-60 by the capacity of the Castle.

This year's meeting goes beyond electrochemistry and invites scientists working in the field of low-dimensional materials to discuss a wider range of fundamental aspects relevant to the research of 2D and 1D materials at the J. Heyrovsky Institute.

The general philosophy of the Discussions is to invite experienced scientists specialized in a certain field together with students or young research workers, and to let them to present in an informal way their most recent achievements and interpretations with a special stress on broad and friendly scientific discussion.

For this reason the time schedule is more free than that at conventional meetings allowing more space to discussion: the program is divided into several sessions devoted to individual topics. Every session is opened by an introductory lecture (40 min). After that oral presentations announced in the program (15-20 min long) as well as short ad hoc contributions (5-15 min long) follow, which are accompanied by free discussion. The chairing person plays an important role here, since in the frame of a session he has to follow time and simultaneously to provoke and coordinate discussion. Posters will be exhibited during whole meeting in foyer.

In order to allow presentation of the most recent results, abstracts of announced oral contributions and posters are required (in electronic form) until April 13, 2018. Note that the most fresh results presented as ad-hoc contributions need no abstracts. Printed proceedings of announced papers (as well as their electronic form) will be prepared before the Discussion (with its own ISBN).
