These four days of the "New Carbon Nanomaterials: Ultrathin Diamond Films" conference were wonderful. You have made fascinating talks that arouse interest, curiosity, and motivation for further research. Our modest meeting allowed the participants to exchange opinions, ideas and maybe even to create collaborations. Therefore, we humbly wish that the conference has helped to develop the field of 2D diamonds. Some participants suggested that maybe we may make our conference a regular event. Good idea! We hope that after some time we may meet again to discuss the development of this field of science that interests us all.


Some unnecessary statistics

• Registered – 54 people

• Simultaneous participation (online-offline) – 30 people

• Time zones: from GMT-6 (Houston, USA) to GMT+11 (Australia)

Dear colleagues,

The preparation of the conference "New Carbon Nanomaterials: Ultrathin Diamond Films" is almost completed. We thank you for your interest in the meeting and hope it will be useful to you.


We have prepared the abstract book 

The conference will be held Monday, December 6 through Thursday, December 9. The first day of the conference begins at 11 a.m. by GMT+0. The final version of the conference program is available here (however, minor changes are still possible, please check the page for updates)

The opening of the conference will be broadcast on the youtube channel NUST MISIS


On the first day of the conference, the Russian-German seminar "Digital materials" (beginning at 07:00 GMT+0) will be held within the framework of the implementation of the "Russian-German Roadmap for Cooperation in Education, Science, Research and Innovation” and the development of mutually beneficial cooperation in new promising areas.


Questions for discussion:
- Material design – the digital future
- Digital doubles
- Digital solutions in materials science
- Big Data - development and main directions

Leading scientists from Russia and Germany will take part in the seminar. 

We very much look forward to seeing you online next week!

Best regards,
Organizing committee of NCN21

Dear colleagues!


On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am pleased to invite scientists from around the world to participate in the International Conference "New Carbon Nanostructure: Ultrathin Diamond Films" (NCN21) on December 06-09, 2021 in Moscow, Russia. In this conference we are going to bring together the materials scientists to discuss the progress in new diamond nanostructures synthesis and analysis.


Due to the unfavorable course of the pandemic, it is not possible to hold the NCN in 2021 in a face-to-face mode. Therefore we plan to host an online conference for researchers from all over the world.

The International Conference NCN21 will be held from December 06 to December 09, 2021, the host organization is National University of Science and Technology "MISIS", Moscow, Russia. The official language of the Conference is English.


Our conference is a great opportunity for the exchange of experiences, innovative ideas, and research focused on theory, advances, and applications of recently discovered two-dimensional diamond film or diamane. We also encourage and invite scientists from neighboring research fields to share their expertise, which will make our conference in NUST MISiS an unforgettable occasion!


On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we wish you all the best and hope to see you in soon.
