TNANO 2016 Impact Factor

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 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.

Journal on Exploratory Solid-State Computational Devices and Circuits (JXCDC)

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

Journal on Exploratory Solid-State Computational Devices and Circuits (JXCDC)

This 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 focus of the publication is on the exploration of materials, Quantum Nano-Electronic or Nano-Magnetic devices and Computation circuits to enable Moore’s Law to continue for computation beyond a 10 to 15 year horizon (beyond end of the roadmap for CMOS technologies) with associated density scaling and improvement in energy efficiency.
This publication provides a unique interdisciplinary forum of scientists and engineers to advance this field of promising alternatives to CMOS technology for computation devices, circuits and architecture.
This journal had it first paper published in January 2015, and has a number of seminal papers in beyond CMOS.

Call for Nominations 2018 IEEE Nanotechnology Distinguished Lecturers

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

The Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is seeking nominations for distinguished lectures. The NTC has created a distinguished lecturers program to enhance the visibility of NTC among nanotechnology societies. The NTC Distinguished Lecturers are appointed to honor excellent speakers who have made technical, industrial or entrepreneurial contributions of high quality to the field of nanotechnology and science, and to enhance the technical programs of the Nanotechnology Council chapters and conferences. Consideration is given to having a well-balanced variety of speakers who can address a wide range of topics of current interest in the fields covered by the Society.

The term for the Lecturers is from January 1 until December 31 of 2018. The Lecturers serve for a one year term, and may be reappointed for one additional year with approval of the NTC Distinguished Lecturer Committee. A budget will be provided each Lecturer to give lectures for NTC Chapters and NTC Conferences based on availability of funding through the NTC. DLs are expected to give a minimum of 2 lectures per year as part of their commitment to serve.

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,
General chair:                    Guangyong Li (University of Pittsburgh)
Sponsorship chair:            Walter Hu (University of Texas at Dallas)
Travel award chair:           Qing Gu (University of Texas at Dallas)

Call for Proposals for Future IEEE NTC Sponsored Conference Sites

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

 

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.
