Call for Proposals for Future IEEE NTC Sponsored Conference Sites

 

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is calling for proposals for future sites for IEEE NANO 2020 and for IEEE NMDC 2019.

IEEE NANO:

The annual IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology is the NTC’s flagship event. The conference scope covers a wide range in nanoscience and technology. In particular, it covers nanofabrication, nanomanufacturing, nanomaerials, nanobiomedicine, nanoenergy, nanoplasmonics, nanoelectronics, nanosensors and nanoactuators, characterisation and modelling of nano structures and devices. Research in both experiments and simulation is reported. Industry is encouraged to present its research projects. NANO 2017, 2018 and 2019 will be held in Pittsburgh, USA; Cork, Ireland; Macau, China respectively.

We are now seeking proposals for NANO 2020 which is expected to run in IEEE Regions 1-7 (North America). NANO should be run at the end of July, preferably in the last week.

Proposal deadline:

  • NANO 2020: October 15th, 2017

Early indication of an intention to submit a proposal is strongly recommended. Candidates for NANO 2020 will be expected to present an informal 5-10 minute “Proposal in preparation” at the NTC Excom and Adcom meetings at NANO 2017 in Pittsburgh, USA. (The presentation can be done remotely, on-line.)

IEEE NMDC:

The Nanotechnology Materials and Devices Conference (NMDC) aims to develop critical assessment of existing work and future directions in nanotechnology research from every sector in the nanotechnology research field, with a special focus on materials and devices. NMDC 2017 and 2018 will be held in Singapore and Portland, USA respectively. Past locations of the NMDC have been in Asia (Korea, Japan, Taiwan), USA (California, Michigan, Hawaii) , and Europe (Sicily,  France).

Proposal deadline:

  • NMDC 2019: October 15th, 2017

PROPOSAL FORMAT:

Proposals may be submitted in PowerPoint, Word, or PDF formats, but PowerPoint files are required for the presentation. A Conference Proposal Reference guide and a PPT template is available on request. Proposals should cover:

  • Venue: City (or nearby city for rural locations);  visitor access (e.g. daily flights,) with typical travel costs; hotel costs (including wi-fi, breakfast, etc?); tourist information
  • Facilities: Hotel or campus venue if known (with verification of availability for formal proposals); lecture theater and meal capacities
  • Personnel: General Chair(s), Program Chair(s), Treasurer, other volunteer personnel if known, (e.g program/advisory committees), and any administrative staff or management company.
  • Budget information:
    • For informal proposals: Target registration rates, estimated number of attendees, estimated income (registration, tutorials, exhibition, grants/donations, etc), estimated expenses (meals/receptions/breaks, administrative costs, etc.), other features of interest
    • For formal proposals: As above, but with more detail covering all budgeted income and expenses in the required IEEE NetSuite spreadsheet format. Note that the (Income-Expense)/Expense ratio must be at least 20%, in accordance with IEEE policy.

Formal proposals must be e-mailed prior to the appropriate deadline to: NTC Vice-President for Conferences Guangyong Li, (GUL6@pitt.edu) with copies to Ed Perkins, NTC Secretary (e.perkins@ieee.org).

Contact Guangyong Li (GUL6@pitt.edu) with any questions.
