Following the main conference will be 5 satellite symposia, each two days long, addressing specific topics (see list below), and each with additional invited talks, contributed talks and posters selected from submitted abstracts.
Registration for satellite meetings is included with Full Conference registration fee, and it is possible to register separately for individual satellite meetings (Satellite Only rate). The registration includes a candlelit formal dinner in one of the historical Cambridge Colleges on Friday 15th July.
The confirmed list of satellite topics and organizers are as follows, with links to further information below:
- Carbon Nanomaterial Biology, Medicine and Toxicology (CNBMT11)
- Computational Challenges and Tools for Nanotubes (CCTN11)
- David Tomanek (Michigan State University)
- Hisashi Nakamura (RIST Tokyo)
- James Elliott (University of Cambridge)
The Computational Challenges and Tools for Nanotubes (CCTN11) satellite symposium of the NT11 conference focuses on quantitative understanding of unique physical properties of nanotube systems using advanced computational approaches. We will highlight the computational challenges in modeling these systems and discuss new tools to master these challenges. We intend to feature significant advances in theoretical understanding, in computational approaches and algorithms, as well as new hardware, including the upcoming generation of high performance computers, capable of tackling these challenges.

Nanotube and graphene science are maturing into technologies for real world applications and as such are leading us into previously uncharted territory in nanotechnology. Commercial adoption of a material requires a level of consistency and quality that can only be assured by internationally agreed upon standards of measurement. The research community also benefits from standard measurement practices and quality in the nanotube and graphene supply systems, as it facilitates inter-laboratory comparisons of research results. This workshop strives to bring together the international stakeholders in nanotube and graphene measurement science and standardization to build consensus on best measurement practices to assure consistency and quality in the field of nanotubes and graphene
The MSIGN11workshop will be held as a two day satellite meeting to NT11. The themes for this year's workshop are: chemical metrology; physical metrology; metrology of assemblies and composites; standards development. The workshop will consist of both invited and contributed talks and posters spanning these areas, a dinner in one of the historical Cambridge colleges, and will close with a round table discussion. A strong effort has been made to ensure global representation among the speakers at MSIGN11. The organizers would like to extend an invitation to all NT11 conferees interested in nanotube and graphene metrology and standardization issues to join us for a lively discussion at MSIGN11.

- Nanocarbon Composites (CNT-NET)
- Ian Kinloch (University of Manchester)
- Karl Schulte (TU Hamburg-Harburg)
This satellite symposium focuses on the processing, properties and applications of composites containing nanocarbons such as nanotubes and graphene. All areas of nanocarbon composites will be covered, including manufacturing, functionalisation, processing, mechanical properties, thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, bioactivity and modelling. The satellite is held jointly with the International CNT-NET Conference series which alternates between Hamburg (2009,2005) and Cambridge (2007, 2003) every two years.
