Call for Proposals for Future IEEE NTC Sponsored Conference Sites

Friday, May 18th, 2018


The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is calling for proposals for future sites for IEEE NANO 2021 and for IEEE NMDC 2020.


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 2018, 2019 and 2020 will be held in Cork, Ireland; Macau, China; Montreal Canada respectively.

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 (
