IEEE Nanotechnology Newsletter October 2017

Monday, October 16th, 2017

Editor’s Note

I am delighted to bring you this quarter’s newsletter. In this issue, you can see there is very strong evidence emerging that IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC)’s activities are extremely successful together with the fact that we have formed an IEEE NTC group in the social media with more than 4000 established and young researchers to connect and communicate the current happenings in the nanotechnology. I hope you enjoy this issue and do let us know if there is any topic you’d like to see covered in the future issue.

IEEE-NANOMED 2017: Confirmed Speakers and Call for Late-News-Abstracts

Monday, October 16th, 2017

The 11th IEEE Int. Conf. on Nano/Molecular Medicine and Engineering (IEEE-NANOMED 2017) will be held at the Shenzhen Virtual University Park, from December 1-4, 2017. IEEE-NANOMED is one of the premier annual events organized by the IEEE Nanotechnology Council, and is the conference where practitioners will see nano/molecular medicine and engineering at work in both their own and related fields, from essential and advanced scientific and engineering research and theory to translational and clinical research.

We are now calling for late-news-abstract submissions, which will be due on October 31, 2017 (PST).  Each abstract should be 2 pages, following standard IEEE conference paper format. To submit your abstract, please visit the following site:

http://www.ieee-nanomed.org/2017/submission-for-review/

If your abstract is accepted (notification of acceptance will be sent by November 7, 2017), and you wish to submit a full paper (4 to 6 pages) for inclusion in the IEEE Explore Database, you will need to submit a final version of your paper by January 31, 2018.

For this year’s conference, we have already confirmed 9 Plenary Speakers, 4 keynote speakers, and close to 50 special invited speakers to give present their latest research results related to nano/molecular medicine, bioMEMS, and bio-nanotechnology. The list of confirmed Plenary Speaker is shown below. Please visit the conference website for details related to the conference:

Journal on Exploratory Solid-State Computational Devices and Circuits Highlights

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

The IEEE Journal on Exploratory Solid-State Computational Devices and Circuits (JXCDC) is an “Open Access” IEEE journal for the publication in multi-disciplinary fields of research towards solid-state circuits using exploratory materials and devices for novel energy efficient computation beyond standard CMOS transistor technology. The papers are selectively chosen to provide an insight into the architectural, circuit and device implications of emerging Quantum Nano-Electronic or Nano-Magnetic device technologies.

The papers have a maximum of eight pages in length. Additional supplementary materials expand on the methods, novel metrology and/or design techniques in many cases. The supplementary is intended as a published repository of best practices.

The IEEE Nanotechnology Summer School – Toulouse

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

IEEE Nanotechnology Summer School on “Nanoelectronic technologies and devices – From basic principle to highly reliable applications” in Toulouse, France.

Congrats on the successful event on the 2017 IEEE Summer School on Nanoelectronics that took place at Laboratoire d’Analyse et d’Architecture des Systems (LAAS-CNRS), Toulouse, France on July 10-14 and organized by IRT Saint Exupery and Laplace Laboratory to promote interdisciplinary understanding of Space, Aeronautical, Defence, Nuclear, Transport, Automotive and Telecommunication Systems based on disruptive Nanotechnologies. Industrial, commercial, and government endeavors are focused on developing and pulling off high performance and low consumption systems based on nanoscale products operating under harsh environment and on disruptive GaN (gallium nitride) & DSM (deep sub-micron) technologies.

IRT offered the opportunity of a series of annual event and this Summer School in Toulouse area, supported by IEEE Nanotechnology Council, is specially designed for Ph.D. students, Post-Docs and young engineers in electronic equipment design and manufacturing, academics, military, defense and industry personnel. Seventeen top-level professors, experts, academics and scientists from the Belgium, Serbia, Singapore, Switzerland, USA, and France, offered 4 days’ lectures to about 30 multinational graduate students and postdocs participating in the summer school.

IEEE NTC Elects 2018 Officers

Monday, August 14th, 2017

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) elected new officers at its Annual Meeting held July 25 in Pittsburgh in conjunction with its 2017 International Conference on Nanotechnology (IEEE NANO).

Representatives of the twenty-two IEEE Societies who are Council members gather annually to conduct Council business and elect officers. This year two positions were up for election: Vice-President for Technical Activities 2018-19 and Vice-President for Publications for 2018-19.

Michel Frechette of the Hydro-Québec (Canada)Research Institute (IREQ) and Associate Professor at École de technologie Supérieure (ETS) in Montreal was elected as Vice-President for Technical Activities.

Frechette has been active in research for the last 40 years, practicing an applied basic approach at IREQ and collaborating with various international bodies and universities. For numerous years, he has been an Associate Professor at École de technologie Supérieure (ETS) in Montreal. For the past 10 years, his major scientific contributions were to the field of nanodielectrics and high-voltage applications.

 

Prof. Jin-Woo Kim, Director of the Bio/Nano Technology Group in the Institute for Nanoscience & Engineering at the University of Arkansas, USA was elected as Vice-President for Publications.

Kim is past editor-in-chief of ENANO and is a long time member of the Conference Steering Committee for the IEEE International Conference on Nano/Molecular Medicine and Engineering (IEEE-NANOMED).

Both positions are effective as of January 1, 2018.
