3rd IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing (ICRC 2018)

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

The 3rd IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing (ICRC 2018) will be held held November 7-9 in Washington DC. ICRC is a premier venue for novel computing approaches, encompassing all aspects of the computing stack. The broad scope of ICRC extends to many areas of interest to Nanotechnology Council (NTC) members, including novel device physics and materials for post-CMOS computing paradigms. NTC members are encouraged to consider submitting their work on exploratory nanodevices, nanocircuits, and nanocomputing architectures to this vibrant interdisciplinary conference.

ICRC grew out of the IEEE Rebooting Computing Initiative (RCI), which was founded in 2012 to catalyze rethinking of the computer at all levels of the technology stack. The Rebooting Computing Committee represents NTC and thirteen other IEEE Societies and Councils, and membership in the Rebooting Computing Technical Community is approaching three thousand. For more information on the RCI―and on many technology developments and activities relevant to the future of computing―please visit the Rebooting Computing Portal (


14th ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Nanoscale Architectures

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

14th ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Nanoscale Architectures
July 18-19 2018, Athens, GREECE

NANOARCH is the annual cross-disciplinary forum for the discussion of novel post-CMOS and advanced nanoscale CMOS directions. The 14th NANOARCH symposium aims to incorporate several exciting sessions on emerging computing paradigms (e.g., approximate, quantum, neuromorphic, molecular, spintronic), novel nano-based computing architectures, 2D materials (e.g., graphene) nanoelectronics and computing, beyond charge-based computing, emerging memory devices and in memory computing, nanoelectronics for biomedical systems, and to provide extended opportunities for interaction among the participants.

In addition to 6-page length Regular Papers, we also invite 2-page Concept Papers presenting less developed but radical and highly innovative work in the area of nanofabrication, nanocomputing, and emerging nanosystem application.

NANOARCH 2018 topics of interest (both theoretical and experimental) include (but are not limited to):


Call for Nominations for NTC Chapter of the Year Awards-2018

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) Chapter of the Year Award is intended to encourage a successful and effective overall performance of the Chapter in terms of its activities. Exemplary Chapters must have a high number of activities and creativity. The Chapter must consistently be active in organizing activities throughout the year.

All nomination materials must reach the NTC Awards Committee by March 31st , 2018. Nominations may be made by any full IEEE member, or by a representative of the nominee chapter.

For details on nomination process and criteria, see the Chapter Award information page.

MARSS 2018 Deadline Extension

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

As the paper submission deadline for 2018 International Conference on Manipulation, Automation and Robotics at Small Scales, MARSS2018,, coincides with the Chinese New Year holiday, the MARSS2018 Organization Committee has  decided to keep MARSS2018 submission site open until March 10th.

This date is the final deadline for all submissions (regular papers, Special session proposals, and papers invited to Special sessions). Further extension is definitely not possible due to the very tight schedule.

Please note that Call for Late News papers (short papers ONLY, up to 3 pages, no inclusion into IEEEXplore) will be open later, from 02-15 May, 2018.
