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. We proudly to inform you that we have received a record high abstract/paper submissions this year (more than 350). On behalf of the program committee of IEEE NANO 2017, we would like to thank all authors who have submitted your abstracts/papers to the conference and all referees who have reviewed papers for the conference.

If you have unfortunately missed the regular submission deadline, you still can submit your work as late news paper. The requirement for the late news paper is the same as that for contributed paper, i.e. a minimum of two pages extended abstract and/or a maximum of six pages full paper. The late news paper will undergo the same peer-review process as the regular contributed paper. The difference is that late news papers are processed by an ad hoc committee in a first-in, first-served fashion. There is limited number of late news paper submissions (about 50) due to the limited space of the conference venue. Please submit your late news paper as soon as you can to have a better chance to be accepted. The deadline for this type of submission is May 15, 2017 or until when we have received enough submissions. Submission Link: http://nano.papercept.net/

If you have interest in presenting your work in IEEE NANO 2017 but do not intend to publish your work, you can submit your work as Presentation without Seeking Publication. The requirement for this presentation only submission is a text abstract with an optional two-page extended abstract. If you choose the presentation type as Oral, please also upload the two-page extended abstract for better chance of being selected. The presentation only submission will not receive standard peer review; instead it will be reviewed by the program committee. The acceptation of presentation only submission is determined by its merit, its relevance to the conference, the availability of space. The deadline for this type of submission is May 15, 2017 or until when we have received enough submissions.

The second International Conference on Manipulation, Automation and Robotics at Small Scales (MARSS) is held from 17-21 July 2017 in Montréal, Canada. See http://marss-conference.org.

This recently-established annual conference is managed by a high-level Steering Committee and technically supported by IEEE-RAS and IEEE-NTC. The Steering Committee has the ambition to develop MARSS to the flagship event for cross-disciplinary R&D communities to discuss current activities in all areas related to manipulation and automation (including measurement and characterization) at micro & nano scales, and in all kinds of small scale robots and their applications

The Call for Late News Papers (short papers ONLY, up to 3 pages) is now open for two weeks, from 02-15 May http://marss-conference.org/calls/call-for-late-news. You are kindly invited to attend and contribute to the event.

MARSS2017 will organize a fast-track peer-reviewing of the submitted Late News Papers. Authors will be notified of the status of their papers within a week after the submission. Accepted Late News Papers will be presented in parallel sessions (20 min). All accepted papers will be included into the conference proceedings.

The 2017 IEEE N3 Summer school will be held in Montréal, Canada, from Monday, June 26 till Friday, June 30 2017.

The aim of the school is to provide graduate students and early career researchers in nanotechnology a basic understanding of the fundamental concepts that underpin the properties of nanomaterials, the opportunities afforded by advanced characterization tools and the prospects of nanoscale devices. Our lectures will be structured so as to impart a broad set of concepts, starting from the design of nanomaterials, their synthesis using various approaches, the characterization of their structure and properties, their integration into devices and device testing and optimization.

The N3 School is designed to appeal to senior undergraduates; graduate students; post-docs; and researchers and practitioners at the early stages of their careers who are eager to deepen and broaden heir skills in nanotechnology ranging from nanoscale synthesis to characterization to device fabrication and testing.

At its November meeting, the NTC Excom approved a proposal from the NTC Technical Activities Committee to form the 14th Technical Committee (TC), on  Nanoacoustic Devices, Processes and Materials. Xiaoning Jiang, of the Dept. of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, UNC & NCSU Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC, USA was appointed as TC Chair for 2016-2017, and James Spicer of the Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA was appointed as TC co-chair for 2016-2017.

The past 10 years has seen an explosion of research interest in acoustics associated nanomaterials, nanostructures, nanofabrication and devices for a broad range of applications.

The NTC’s IEEE-UFFC member society  has a large group of scientists and students  who research nano-acoustics, but have not been benefiting from or contributing to NTC technical activities.

The TC will focus on such areas as:

  • Acoustic device applications such as mobile and/or autonomous devices (e.g. microphone, acoustic touch sensing, etc.), biomedical imaging devices (ultrasound imaging), biomedical therapy devices (ultrasound therapy, acoustic drug delivery), implantable and embedded devices (acoustic sensors and transducers), wearable and surface mountable devices (acoustic sensors), which involve interactions between acoustics waves and nano-materials/structures.
  • Advanced acoustic sensing and measurement approaches that permit unprecedented understanding of phenomena on the nanoscale.
  • Development of new materials for application to nanoscale acoustic devices and processes, examples include piezoelectric nano-materials, piezoelectric nano-structures, photoacoustic nanonaterials and nanostructures, etc.

The new TC has announced its initial goals:

Within two years: A dedicated session at IEEE NANO with 10 accepted papers

Within four years: A dedicated track at IEEE NANO with 30 accepted papers, regular tutorials at IEEE NANO, a dedicated special issue in TNANO or TUFFC.
