We are pleased to address "Nanocarbon2011 in Nagano" on 16 and 17 November, 2011 in Nagano, Japan, where nano carbons, ones of the most expected materials in the 21st Century, are discussed by the superb specialists.

It is incontestable that carbons are significantly important to human beings in any means from the prehistoric time, while scientists have found and developed carbon nanotubes, fullerenes and graphenes in the mid 20th Century and then. Those recent findings have been industrialized in this Century indeed, which definitely contributes our society, such as lithium ion battery, and the application development is accelerated. It is because carbon distributes and exists all over the globe massively. Sooner or later, our society possibly leaves the resource oriented technology and has environmental friendly community as having daily lives supported by Carbon near future.

"Better Carbon, Best lives" is this year's theme for the international conference and workshop to appeal the importance and utilization of nano carbons. Those lecturers give you insight to realize the latest scientific and industrial achievements and issues on nano carbons. In addition, Key scientists and specialists on Environment, Health and Safety and legal matters on nanocarbons give their lectures and have discussion with you on the EHS and regulatory issues for nanocarbons. They manage national and regional projects and negotiate with regulatory every day. It is, in fact, your best and rare opportunity to touch with such key persons directly here in Japan. Through this workshop, you can realize the latest information on the EHS and legal issues while you have real stories rather than indirect information. After attending to the workshop, you could bring back important information for your organizations appropriately.

It is the best season to enjoy sightseeing in Nagano and tasting specialties (The Snow Monkeys and The Nagano Aplles, respectively. We have more, of course). Again it is our pleasure to have the conference and workshop with the global-class lecturers and audience in beautiful autumn Nagano nature.
