Welcome to NanoteC20!

After careful consideration for the travel and health concerns surrounding the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the NanoteC 20 transitioned  to a fully virtual experience.


The meeting will take place on the 25th of August and you will be able to join us virtually via Zoom. 

Registration deadline – 20 August 2020. REGISTER to participate in the meeting HERE.

To submit your abstract,  please use the template (Abstract template here) and email your abstract to by 14 August 2020.

See below for more details.

NanoteC is one of the longest running series of international nanoscale carbon conferences in Europe (since 1998). It brings together scientists working with nanoscale carbon materials: nanotubes, graphene, diamond- and fullerene-related nanostructures. This also includes related low dimensional non-carbon based systems, such as transition metal dichalcogenides, among others. 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.

Elemental carbon shows remarkable variety in properties via simple covalent bonding, however other systems (for example containing nitrogen or metals and low dimensional layered non-carbon based systems) are becoming important and provide alternative components with unique mechanical and electronic properties. Nanotechnology requires an understanding of these materials on an atomic level and this will be the central theme.

The 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 provide a great dose of insipiration to the next generation of nanotechnologists and surface scientists.

NanoteC20 will take place on August 25th. The University of Surrey looks forward to hosting the event.   Join us for a day of stimulating carbon science, with plenary speakers, seminar sessions and e-poster communications. The meeting will be followed by a virtual reception (quiz event).
