NanoteC11 : Nanotechnology in Carbon and Related Materials
31st August – 3rd September 2011
Institute of Materials, Nantes, France

2ND ANNOUNCEMENT : ABSTRACT DEADLINE APPROACHING....
Extension to 24th June - Also the registration deadline!!
Maximum 130 in the lecture hall, so please register early...

We are pleased to announce NanoteC11 at the Institute of Materials in Nantes, in the west of France.  The meeting is in conjunction with WG1 and WG2 workgroup meetings for NanoTP and includes several NanoTP invited speakers and thus attendance of NanoTP members is supported.

One of the longest running carbon nanoscience conferences in Europe, NanoteC brings together scientists working in the broad area of carbon science at the nanoscale: nanotubes, fullerenes, nanohorns, graphene, nanowires, sp3 forms, etc. While each of these materials attracts its own dedicated community of researchers, NanoteC draws on common themes and allows researchers to share insight into this unique element at the nanoscale.

Coinciding with the conference weekend, the city of Nantes hosts a huge free open-air jazz festival around the River Erdre. A range of music from traditional to modern, a great way to relax after several days of carbon nanoscience!

To encourage student participation registration this year is only 150 pounds (including most meals), and cheap accommodation is available. Full details including a preliminary list of invited speakers are available at http://www.britishcarbon.org/nanotec

Looking forward to seeing you there!
