Welcome to NANOTUBE-99!
We are thrilled by the prospect of a unique workshop focussing on an
intriguing material, namely Nanotubes. This is truly
your workshop; the unusual format and approach
reflect the variety of ideas we received from many of you. NT'99 will
combine the format of an informal workshop reporting cutting-edge
discoveries with that of a conference, where invited talks will be
presented by leaders in the field.
Also our approach and objectives are somewhat different from
specialized workshops and conferences:
We welcome everyone to share with us the
adventurous journey to the limits of the unknown.
The World-Wide Web has been used as the primary medium to announce the
NT'99 workshop, thus reaching out beyond the scientific community, to
everybody interested and excited about new discoveries and
technologies. The response surpassed our expectations; close to two
hundred persons from twenty-seven countries expressed their interest
in attending NT'99. This list includes leading experts as well as
novices in the field, a sculptor and a poet who have found inspiration
NT'99 is a result of our effort to bring together diverse scientific
disciplines: Physics, Chemistry and Engineering; Theory, Experiment,
and Modeling. We are convinced that our common enthusiasm for the
recently discovered nanotubes will help us to find a common language
and enrich the field by shared expertise.
BRIDGE TO INDUSTRY.
At NT'99, we will try our best to strengthen connections between
Science and Applications. We are very happy to host participants from
leading Universities next to those from high-tech companies such as
Zyvex, Samsung, IBM, Allied Signal, General Motors, Toyota, and
