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

Thursday, October 18th, 2018

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 Int. Symposium on Nanoscale Architecture

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018

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 2018 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
