NANOTEC10 : Carbon nanoscience and nanotechnology, 1-4 September, Oxford

Although not officially a NanoTP supported meeting this year, NanoteC is organised by several NanoTP members.  A friendly, lively conference with good support for students, typically ~100 participants, it is being held this year at Corpus Christi college in Oxford.

NANOTEC10 : Carbon nanoscience and nanotechnology
1-4 September 2010 at Corpus Christi College Oxford, Oxford, UK

We are pleased to announce NanoteC10 at Corpus Christi College Oxford.

Conference deadlines:

**      Abstract submission deadline: Sunday 23 May 2010
**      Early registration deadline: Wednesday 23 June 2010

NanoteC10 will bring together scientists working in the broad area of carbon science at the nanoscale: nanotubes, fullerenes, nanohorns, graphene, nanowires, sp forms, etc. While each of these materials attracts its own NanoteC draws on common themes and dedicated community of researchers, allows researchers to share insight into this unique element at the nanoscale. NanoteC also provides a platform to explore wider issues in nanoscience such as toxicology and science communication.

NanoteC10 will contain dedicated sessions on synthesis, microscopy and spectroscopy of graphene, carbon nanotubes and related systems, nanocomposites, devices and electronic applications and theoretical modelling, combining both fundamental knowledge with applied research.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

Pulickel Ajayan (Rice University, USA)
Florian Banhart (University of Strasbourg, France)
Achim Hartschuh (Ludwig-Maximilians Universität, Germany)
Sophie Lanone (ISERM Paris, France)
Toru Maekawa (Bio Nano Centre, Toyo University, Japan)
Barbara Montanari (Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK)
Valeria Nicolosi (University of Oxford, UK)
Cécile Zakri (Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal-CNRS, France)
Zeila Zanolli (CSIC Barcelona, Spain)

A special session, the nano-Faraday discussions, on science history and DIVERSITY will explore the development of scientific careers of the centuries. A round table debate / workshop to share views on these issues between all participants. NanoteC conferences are renowned for their relaxed and friendly atmosphere, with emphasis on discussion and participation. We endeavour to achieve as much student participation as possible, and we anticipate that the keynote talks will be strongly influential on the next generation of nanotechnology scientists.

NanoteC10 is supported by the British Carbon Group, Corpus Christi College, The Royal Society, The Royal Microscopical Society, The European Research Council, DIVERSITY, and the Department of Materials at Oxford University.

Organised by Nicole Grobert (Vice-Chairman BCG; Oxford University), Malcolm Heggie (BCG; Sussex University, Brighton), Chris Ewels (BCG; IMN, CNRS, Nantes), Gregory Van Lier (VUB, Brussels) on behalf of the British Carbon Group (registered charity number207890), which is sponsored by the Insitute of Physics, Society of Chemical Industry and the Royal Society of Chemistry.
