•What are the applications for which 2D materials are competitive and what are the applications for which 2D materials are ill-suited for?
•Over 700 different 2D materials have predicted, which material(s) do you think are most likely to be commercialized in the future?
•Are there any commercial products based on 2D materials? If there are, what are the key products?
•What are the primary competitors for 2D materials? What are the key challenges for commercialization of 2D materials?
•What should we be doing in the 2D materials field of research in terms of promoting practical applications?

•Briefly, what is the status of quantum computing hardware today?
•What applications do you foresee for quantum information systems?
•What is holding quantum information devices back from commercial applications?
•Which solid state qubit technology is the most promising? What advantages and disadvantages does it have?
•When do you anticipate a commercial application will arise for quantum devices?
•Do non-solid-state quantum systems (e.g. laser trapping) have a role to play?
