The 23rd
International conference

on the Science and Applications of Nanotubes and Low-Dimensional Materials

4-9 June 2023

Arcachon near Bordeaux, France



NT’23 is the 23rd conference of the NT series, one of the most influential scientific conferences in the field of nanoscience and technology.
NT’23 will take place from June 4 to 9, 2023 in the city of Arcachon on the banks of the atlantic ocean and near Bordeaux in France.


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.


NT’23 will integrate previous satellite symposia 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.

Practical information

Venue & Travel

The Twenty-Third International Conference on the Science and Applications of Nanotubes and Low-Dimensional Materials (NT’23) will be held at the “Palais des Congrès” of the seaside Arcachon city, near Bordeaux in France. (Fig 1a-b)

Early June corresponds to the beginning of summertime in South-West of France, with usually nice and dry weather (Fig 1c), while displaying a moderate tourism frequentation.

The conference site is easily accessible by train from Paris or Bordeaux.

  • Typically the easiest route is to take the high-speed train (TGV) from Paris Charles-de-Gaulle Airport (CDG) to Bordeaux downtown station, then take a regional express train from Bordeaux station to Arcachon. (Fig 1d).
  • You can also arrive by plane at Bordeaux-Merignac airport, then take a direct bus shuttle to Bordeaux downtown station, and then take a regional express train from Bordeaux station to Arcachon station. (Fig 1d).
  • Another option is to take a direct TGV train from Paris Montparnasse train station to Bordeaux

The conference center is a 5-minute walk from the Arcachon train station, just across from the beach. More info and train tickets at the French Railways website.


Information will be provided later.

  • The “cabanes tchanquées”, wooden cabins perched on stilts, typical of Arcachon.
  • Dune du Pilat, the highest sand dune in Europe.
  • Cordouan lighthouse, built in 1584.
  • Village of Saint-Emillion, famous for its Bordeaux wine.
  • Talmon, fortified village on the Gironde estuary
  • Cap Ferret area.
  • Ocean Beaches (surf activities).
  • Wine tours in the Bordeaux vineyard.
