IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) Special Section/Issue on Current Trends in Nanoelectronic Circuits and System Design

To enable next generation sensing, control, and computing, in reality, advanced nanoelectronic devices and circuits must be developed and co-optimized across multiple hierarchical levels in order to sense, process and transmit data, while satisfying the demanding performance requirements for high speed, low power, flexible reconfigurability, high reliability etc. In addition, with the increasing complexity and data volume of sensing and computing, novel designs must be explored to improve design efficiency, enhance reliability and reduce time-to-market. For these reasons, there is an immediate need to re-think the conventional design strategies for implementing the next-generation sensing, control, and computing paradigm. This special issue focuses on novel device technology and circuit designs to implement smart, efficient, reliable and secure sensing, control, and computing paradigm. The topics of interest include:

  • Nanoelectronic devices with ultra-high energy efficiency
  • Energy-efficient analog front end and wireless communication circuits using nanoelectronic devices
  • Emerging device and memory technology for information processing and storage
  • Emerging device, including but not limited to GFET, TFET, Graphene nanoribbon tunnel FET, for digital, analog, and RF circuit design
  • Emerging memory, including but not limited to phase change memory, magnetic device, resistive memory, for digital, analog, and RF circuit design
  • Nano-sensors for data sensing in Internet of Things
  • Nano-CMOS and Post-CMOS based circuits for big data processing
  • Nanoelectronic technology based sensors and controller for Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Security and reliability solutions for nanoelectronic devices and circuits
  • Nanoelectronic devices and circuits for secure sensing
  • Novel devices and circuits for non-conventional computing
  • Neuromorphic circuits and architectures
  • Nano-CMOS and Post-CMOS based sensors and circuits for smart grid
  • Case studies for sensors and circuits designed using nanoelectronic technology

Special Issue on the 17 th IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology

Saturday, November 11th, 2017

IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) Special Section/Issue on the
17th IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology (IEEE-NANO 2017)

Nanoscience and nanotechnology have rapidly established themselves as enabling disciplines within all science fields, including materials science, engineering, physics, chemistry, and biology. Following the success of the 17th IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology (IEEE-NANO2017), IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) is extending a Call For Papers for a Special Section /Issue reflecting the scope of the conference.
Submitted manuscripts will undergo a full peer review process. All appropriate submissions are welcome and are not limited to conference attendees. Authors who are attendees are requested to significantly expand any 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.”

Submissions that reflect the Conference Scope and current state of the field are welcome in areas including:

  • DNA Nanotechnology
  • Micro-to- nano-scale bridging
  • Nanobiology and Nanomedicine
