12th Trends in Nanotechnology International Conference (TNT2011) will take place in Hotel Iberostar Anthelia (south of Tenerife -Canary Islands (Spain)).

Iberostar Anthelia, is situated right in front of the sea between the exceptional beaches of "Fañabé" and "El Duque" in the exclusive enclave of Costa Adeje, south of Tenerife.

The Canary Islands lie near the northern coast of Africa and are surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. This autonomous region is made up of seven large islands: Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, Gomera and Hierro, and other smaller ones, such as Graciosa, Alegranza and Lobos.
The coastlines are blessed with vast sandy beaches full of outstanding reefs, capes and bays. The Canary Islands are best characterized by the volcanic scenery. The volcanic activity of the past has created a most peculiar landscape on the islands, with craters, volcanic cones, volcanic rocks, tubes etc. The island's most emblematic natural landscape has to be Mount Teide which, standing at 3,718 meters high, is the tallest mountain in Spain. The islands special geography and low rainfall create a very special destination.
