The IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) publishes novel and important results in engineering at the nanoscale.  


 

Special Section on Defect and Fault Tolerance in VLSI and Nanotechnology Systems

The IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) seeks original manuscripts for a Special Section following the 2018 edition of the IEEE International Symposium on Defect and Fault Tolerance in VLSI and Nanotechnology Systems (DFTS).

The continuous scaling of CMOS devices as well as the increased interest in the use of emerging technologies make more and more important the topics related to defect and fault tolerance in VLSI and nanotechnology systems. All aspects of design, manufacturing, test, reliability, and availability that are affected by defects during manufacturing and by faults during system operation, are of interest.

The topics of interest for this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Yield Analysis and Modeling
  • Testing Techniques
  • Design For Testability in IC Design
  • Error Detection, Correction, and Recovery
  • Dependability Analysis and Validation
  • Repair, Restructuring and Reconfiguration
  • Defect and Fault Tolerance
  • Totally Fail-Safe Design for Critical Applications
  • Emerging Technologies
  • Hardware Security

Authors who presented their work at DFTS are requested to significantly expand the previous conference version to contain substantial new technical material, as per TNANO and IEEE restrictions on duplicated publications and the competitive acceptance process. Manuscripts for the TNANO Special Issue/Section must be submitted on-line using the IEEE TNANO manuscript template and “Information for Authors”, via the IEEE Manuscript Central found at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tnano. On submission to TNANO, authors should select the “Special Issue” manuscript type instead of “Regular Paper.”.

Please note the following important dates.

  • Submission of papers: 20 December, 2018
  • Notification of first review results: 20 March, 2019
  • Submission of revised papers: 1 May, 2019
  • Notification of final review results: 1 June, 2019.

Please address all other correspondence regarding this special Section to the Guest Editors.

Special Section on the 14th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Nanoscale Architecture

IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) Special Section/Issue on the 14th IEEE / ACM International Symposium on Nanoscale Architecture (NANOARCH 2018)

Encouraged by the success of the 14th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Nanoscale Architecture (NANOARCH 2018) IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (T-NANO) seeks extended versions of papers presented at NANOARCH 2018 addressing upcoming novel nanoscale architecture core topics like emerging computing paradigms (e.g., approximate, quantum, neuromorphic, molecular, spintronic), nano-based computing architectures, 2D materials (e.g., graphene) nanoelectronics and computing, beyond charge-based computing, emerging memory devices and in memory computing, nanoelectronics for biomedical systems.

NANOARCH 2014 authors are invited to submit extended versions of their conference contribution containing a substantial amount of new technical material in view of IEEE policy on self-plagiarism, duplicated publications and the competitive acceptance process.

Manuscripts for T-NANO must be prepared in line with the IEEE T-NANO manuscript template and “Information for Authors”, and submitted on-line via the IEEE Manuscript Central at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tnano. On submission to T-NANO, authors should select the “Special Issue” manuscript type instead of “Regular Paper” and state in the cover letter that the paper is meant for the Special Section/Issue on the 14th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Nanoscale Architecture (NANOARCH 2018) and summarize the changes and additions operated on their NANOARCH 2018 paper. The authors should consider that (i) manuscripts must focus on nanotechnology as reflected by technical contents and references and (ii) the submitted manuscripts will undergo the standard peer review process coordinated by the T-NANO editorial board.

Deadlines for TNANO Special Section/Issue:

  • Manuscript Submission: December 1, 2018
  • First decision to authors: January 31, 2019
  • Revision due (if necessary): February 28, 2019
  • Final notification (acceptance/rejection): April 1, 2019
  • Final manuscripts due: April 30, 2019
  • Special section publication: Mid 2019

Message from the Editor-In-Chief

Also this year as the flagship publication of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC), I am pleased to report that the IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) has achieved new heights across all endeavors of operation.

2017 is the third consecutive year with record numbers in terms of number of submissions; moreover, selectivity has remained nearly constant, so confirming that TNANO has reached an excellent level of overall scholarship. In quantitative terms, Manuscript Central Scholar One reports the following very impressive statistics for the 2017 calendar year (the data for 2016 is reported between parentheses):

  • Number of regular manuscript submissions: 797 (758)
  • Number of “Letter” submissions: 124 (0)
  • Total number of submissions: 921 (758)
  • Acceptance rate: 31% (28%)
  • Rejection rate: 50% (54%)
  • Revise-and-resubmit rate: 19% (18%)

Announcement: ENANO becomes “Letters” in TNANO

 
The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is excited to announce the launch of the category “Letters” in IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) by merging IEEE Nanotechnology Express (ENANO) with TNANO. Led by the newly appointed Associate Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Gwo-Bin Lee, under the leadership of the Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Fabrizio Lombardi, 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, including nanoscale materials, devices, systems, and applications, and their underlying science, which cover the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary areas across engineering, material science, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, and related disciplines.

 
The “Letters” in TNANO publishes a collection of peer-reviewed short reports of original research and perspectives and mini-reviews on emerging topics. 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. The “Letters” in TNANO maintains the same competitive and constructive peer-review criteria of TNANO with no article publishing charges.

 
TNANO is now accepting submissions for the “Letters”. The TNANO manuscript submission process is fully electronic to ensure the rapid publication of results. Manuscripts should be submitted via ScholarOne Manuscripts at . 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.

 
Submit your manuscript to the “Letters” in TNANO!


Information about TNANO

TNANO focuses on nanoscale devices, systems, materials and applications, and on their underlying science. It is an interdisciplinary journal that covers all areas of nanotechnology. The hardcopy version is published bi-monthly, but accepted papers are published on the web as soon as they are submitted in final form. TNANO is a publication of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council.

TNANO is a Hybrid Journal, which means that it allows either:

  • Traditional manuscript submission
  • Open Access (author-pays OA) manuscript submission at a discounted rate


 TNANO publishes Research Letters, Regular Papers, and Correspondence Items. Research Letters must not exceed four printed pages. They are subject to the same thorough review process as Regular Papers, but receive priority treatment. A Research Letter that is accepted without major revisions is expected to be published on the web within 4 to 6 weeks of its initial submission.


Areas covered by TNANO include, but are not limited to:

  • Nano and Molecular Electronics
  • Circuits and Architectures
  • Nanomagnetism and Spintronics
  • Nano-Optics, Nano-Optoelectronics and Nanophotonics
  • Nanorobotics and Nanoassembly
  • Nanosensors and Nanoactuators
  • Nanomechanics and Nanoelectromechanical Systems
  • Nanobiotechnology and Nanomedicine
  • Nanofabrication and Nanolithography
  • Nanometrology and Characterization
  • Computational Nanotechnology
