Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

New Impact Factor 2.485!

IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) is pleased to announce a new 2016 impact factor (IF) of 2.485*! This represents 46% increase from the 2015 IF, upholding the TNANO’s status as one of the leading peer-reviewed engineering journals in the field of nanotechnology. The official journal of IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC), TNANO publishes a collection of peer-reviewed articles and short reports (i.e., letters) of original research and perspectives and reviews and mini-reviews on emerging topics. TNANO offers rapid peer-review and can publish an accepted article online through IEEE Xplore® as soon as it is submitted in final form. Web-published papers have DOI (Digital Object Identifier), and are fully citable and downloadable.

Make sure your manuscript has the impact and gets the attention it deserves by submitting your article to TNANO today. For complete instructions for authors, visit the TNANO website at http://tnano.org/.

IEEE NANO 2017 offers IEEE Student Travel Fellowships

Monday, June 12th, 2017

The 17th IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology (IEEE NANO 2017) will be held at the Pittsburgh Marriott City Center in Pittsburgh, USA, July 25-28, 2017.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are glad to announce that the IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) has decided to offer a travel fellowship to support IEEE student members for attending IEEE NANO 2017.

The travel fellowship will cover the accommodation up to five room nights (shared with another student) for about 40 IEEE student members.  If you are an IEEE student member and have interest in applying for this fellowship, please complete the IEEE NANO 2017 Travel Fellowship Application form and return it along with your resume by June 15.

If you have already applied for the NSF travel fellowship, you will be automatically considered for this fellowship, so you don’t need to submit your application for this fellowship.

Yours Sincerely,

Call for ‘Late News’ Papers – IEEE NANO 2017

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

The 17th IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology (IEEE NANO 2017) will be held at the Pittsburgh Marriott City Center in Pittsburgh, USA, July 25-28, 2017. We proudly to inform you that we have received a record high abstract/paper submissions this year (more than 350). On behalf of the program committee of IEEE NANO 2017, we would like to thank all authors who have submitted your abstracts/papers to the conference and all referees who have reviewed papers for the conference.

If you have unfortunately missed the regular submission deadline, you still can submit your work as late news paper. The requirement for the late news paper is the same as that for contributed paper, i.e. a minimum of two pages extended abstract and/or a maximum of six pages full paper. The late news paper will undergo the same peer-review process as the regular contributed paper. The difference is that late news papers are processed by an ad hoc committee in a first-in, first-served fashion. There is limited number of late news paper submissions (about 50) due to the limited space of the conference venue. Please submit your late news paper as soon as you can to have a better chance to be accepted. The deadline for this type of submission is May 15, 2017 or until when we have received enough submissions. Submission Link: http://nano.papercept.net/

If you have interest in presenting your work in IEEE NANO 2017 but do not intend to publish your work, you can submit your work as Presentation without Seeking Publication. The requirement for this presentation only submission is a text abstract with an optional two-page extended abstract. If you choose the presentation type as Oral, please also upload the two-page extended abstract for better chance of being selected. The presentation only submission will not receive standard peer review; instead it will be reviewed by the program committee. The acceptation of presentation only submission is determined by its merit, its relevance to the conference, the availability of space. The deadline for this type of submission is May 15, 2017 or until when we have received enough submissions.
