IEEE has revised and updated their information for authors pages and created the IEEE Author Center.

The IEEE Author Center is a standalone site for journal authors that provides a one-stop shop to learn about publishing with IEEE.  This comprehensive source of up-to-date content is written from the author’s perspective in simple, engaging language and is easily viewed in mobile.  The content is organized to follow the author’s path through the publishing process, from writing the article through to post-publication.

The IEEE Author Center will replace existing content on ieee.org as of 31-Aug-17.

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.

Thematic Issue of The “Letters” in IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO): Biomedical Micro/Nano-Devices

The “Letters” in IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) will devote a themed issue “Biomedical Micro/Nano-Devices” to a collection of papers highlighting research and technology development in micro/nano-engineered devices for broad ranges of biomedical applications. Recent development of micro/nano-technologies enables an emerging class of devices, which provide advanced capabilities not only to sense and/or stimulate living cells and tissues but also to deliver various bio-agents at their length scale. These platforms also open a new possibility to explore the interfacial interactions between micro/nano-materials and biology in a minimally invasive manner, which otherwise cannot be achievable by exploiting conventional bulk materials systems. The topics of interests in this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Advanced fabrication methods for micro/nano-scale biomedical devices
  • Micro/nano-scale recording and stimulation at cellular and/or tissue level
  • Micro/nano-scale force measurements of cell adhesion, migration, and contraction.
  • Minimally invasive intracellular and intratissue access and targeting by micro/nano-devices
  • Wearable biomedical devices enabled by micro/nano-materials and designs.
  • Mechanically soft and flexible micro/nano-devices for bio-integration.
  • Biochips and bio-MEMS

 

Submissions are solicited from researchers in the field for short reports of original research and perspectives and mini-reviews on emerging topics for this themed issue. Papers submitted to the “Letters” are limited to a maximum of 4 journal pages in the two-column IEEE format, which includes figures, tables, and references. Manuscripts will be subject to the same competitive and constructive peer-review criteria of TNANO with no article publishing charges.

The “Letters” in TNANO serves as forum for rapid publication of high-quality articles – featuring the topics of great current interest in all areas of nanotechnology. The submission to publication time is expected to be approximately six weeks. Accepted papers are published on the web in IEEE Xplore as soon as they are submitted in final form. Web-published papers have a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), and are fully citable and downloadable.

Follow the guideline (http://sites.ieee.org/tnano/author-info/), and submit your paper to ScholarOne ManuscriptsTM at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tnano, indicating in the cover letter that you wish the paper to be considered for the Special Issue “Letters: Biomedical Micro/Nano-Devices”. Note that the submitted article cannot be a verbatim copy of a published conference article and your manuscript must contain at least 30% new results when compared with conference papers.

Submission deadline: August 31, 2017
Anticipated publication: October 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.
