NT19: International Conference on the Science and Application of Nanotubes and Low-Dimensional Materials

21 - 26 July 2019, Würzburg, Germany



One of the most influential scientific conferences in the field of nanoscience and technology and its 20 year anniversary (see previous NT conferences here: http://www.photon.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp/nt/ )


The conference will cover a broad range of topics of interest to the nanotube and low-dimensional materials communities.
  • Synthesis, processing and functionalization
  • Properties and characterisation
  • Theory and simulation
  • Applications
Dedicated afternoon sessions will focus the discussion on themes ranging from computational challenges, over spectroscopy and metrology, to 2D materials, graphene, device technologies, electronic transport, life science applications, energy, synthesis, fabrication and more.


For the first time, the NT conference series will integrate previous satellite workshops as key element of its afternoon program (parallel focussed sessions). The remainder of the conference is structured around morning keynote lectures, invited and contributed presentations. Emphasis on informal discussions during extended poster sessions remains at the heart of the meeting. An industrial exhibit and forum will allow participants with different backgrounds to come together for exchanging ideas and developing visions.
  • 14th Symposium on Computational Challenges in Two-Dimensional Materials and Nanotubes
  • 13th Symposium on Nanotube Spectroscopy, Photonics, and Applications in Metrology
  • 10th Graphene and 2D Materials Symposium
  • 10th Symposium on Carbon Nanomaterials Biology, Medicine & Toxicology
  • 7th Carbon Nanotube Thin Film Electronics and Applications Symposium
  • 2nd Symposium on Nanocarbon Materials for Energy and Sustainability
  • 1st Symposium on Synthesis, Purification and Functionalization of Low-Dimensional Materials


  • To identify opportunities for academically rewarding and technologically relevant research directions. 
  • To provide a platform for informal exchange of research-outcomes and visions in a stimulating environment. 
  • To engage innovators from academia and industry, allowing them to share their ideas and to connect with future leaders of the field. 
  • The interaction with young research talent has therefore been essential to all of the NT meetings and will remain a major focus.
