The Nanotube Conference Series

Since their conception in 1999, the Nanotube Conferences attempt to provide an informal setting to exchange the most current information in the rapidly evolving Nanotube research field.

During the initial years, the number of registered participants exceeded the planned capacity by a factor of two. This was manageable at NT99 in East Lansing, with 120 instead of the planned 60 participants. The following conference, NT01, was planned to accommodate 140 participants at a beautiful location in Potsdam. The large number of applications, close to 300, turned from a blessing to a headache for the organizers. Only half of the applicants could be admitted due to the hard limit, imposed by the hotel capacity at the somewhat remote location. The strong interest in the topic and the conference format held on at NT02 at Boston College. Since then, the number of participants has increased gradually, reaching approximately 900 at NT09 in Beijing.

To reflect the international nature of the research field, the NT03 conference was held at Seoul National University in Korea. By that time, the Asia-Europe-Americas "continent swapping mode" emerged as a pattern. The NT04 conference was held in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. The NT05 conference has been brought back to Europe. NT06 took place in Japan, NT07 in Brazil, NT08 in France, NT09 in China, NT10 in Canada, NT11 in the U.K., NT12 in Australia, NT13 in Finland, NT14 in the USA, NT15 in Japan, NT16 in Austria, NT17 in Brazil, and NT18 in China.

The second series of NT conferences in a new format has started with NT19 in Germany and continues with NT20 in the USA.

Common to all conferences is a venue located close to a strong center of Nanotube research activity, and a local organization team active in Nanotube research. Contributions, presented in oral "Poster+" and Poster sessions, have traditionally been treated with a high priority, taking up about half of the total conference time, with no parallel sessions. Other features common to the conferences include an emphasis on quality, originality, and informality. Many of these desirable commonalities have been captured in the "Charter of the Nanotube Conference Series".
