To facilitate entry into the Nanotube field for newcomers, we are offering a
Nanotube Tutorial as a satellite meeting on Sunday, June 18, before the NT06
conference (see the listing in the
This session is especially recommended for students and young researchers in the
nanotube field. We also recommend attendance to industry delegates, who are
interested in getting an overview of the basics as well as the state of the art
in the nanotube field.
The Tutorial session is free of charge for NT06 participants.
Still, so that we may correctly estimate the required size of the
lecture hall, all attendees
must register on-line to be admitted.
Please understand that we may refuse admittance to those not registered
if the number of participants exceeds the capacity of the lecture hall.
