Webinar has been scheduled for February 16 by the Region 8 Young Professional (YP) of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC).

Topic:Magnetic Particle Hyperthermia: A versatile platform in modern Biomedicine

with Prof. Makis Angelakeris, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

Date: Wednesday 16th February 2022 at 11:00 AM (GMT+2) (3AM PST, 6AM ET)



Magnetic Particle Hyperthermia is worldwide accepted as one of the least invasive cancer treatments.

The idea behind this modality is the interaction between magnetic entities, namely nanostructures with an externally applied magnetic field. Nanostructures are dictated to orient according to field direction. Thus, a bi-directional magnetization reversal occurs as alternating field oscillates, typically with a kHz frequency. Magnetization reversal in nanostructures produces energy losses (heat) in the surroundings.

Such heat, if adequately driven and selectively delivered to malignant regions may initiate specific cellular pathways concluding to apoptosis or even necrosis. To augment the field-nanostructure interaction and deliver the maximum possible heat, one has to seek for the best combination of magnetic nanomaterials and magnetic fields.

First, different features of nanomaterials such as structure, size, morphology to promote enhanced magnetic heating and second which magnetic field parameters may be fine-tuned to further optimize magnetic heating efficiency will be discussed.

Second, I will discuss current constraints of magnetic particle hyperthermia such as selectivity and regionality and propose alternative ways to confront them.

To conclude, case studies of Magnetic Particle Hyperthermia applicability schemes and how magnetic particle hyperthermia may play a role as a versatile multifunctional platform in modern biomedicine where heat excess may be the trigger for drug delivery or cell regeneration will be shown.

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council has updated its Constitution and Bylaws effective for 2022.

There are two major changes to the Officers and AdCom membership.

Vice-president-elects have been added to the Officers.
Instead of electing the vice-presidents, the AdCom will now elect vice-president-elects who serve a year as a non-voting member of the Council Excom and AdCom before taking office as a Vice-president. This change is designed to allow the incoming vice-president to have a year of transition and training in their duties. The election of vice-president-elects thus takes place a year earlier than the former election of vice-presidents.

Elected Members-at-large have been added to the AdCom.
Up to three Members-at-Large are to be elected by the AdCom at its Annual Meeting from a slate of candidates in even years and up to three are elected in odd years. The term of the Member-at-Large is two years and the term limit for Member-at-Large is four consecutive years. The duties of Members-at-Large are to provide the Council with independent insights and positions that are in support of the global nanotechnology community, especially those involved in independent research, development and commercialization, to represent the Council positions and statements as needed to these global constituencies and to complete the specific tasks identified in their candidacy documents.

Three new standing committees were added:

  • Fellows Search Committee: This committee to identify potential NTC Fellow candidates and to assist with the nomination process when in the Committee’s judgment they meet the IEEE Fellow criteria. The Committee is independent of and does not communicate with the Fellows Evaluation Committee.
  • Women in Nanotechnology (WIN) Committee: The Committee organizes regional and conference activities to engage female engineering professionals in accordance with WIE principles and guidelines and to introduce them to the NTC community in the promotion of the NTC mission.
  • Young Professionals (YP) Committee: The Committee organizes regional and conference activities to engage early career professionals and to introduce them to the NTC community in the promotion of the NTC mission.

Further details can be found in the Council’s revised Constitution and Bylaws.

The IEEE NANO 2022 Organizing Committee invites proposals for Special Sessions to be held during the 22nd IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology (IEEE-NANO 2022), which will be held from the 4th to the 8th of July 2022 at the Auditorium of Palma de Mallorca, which is the capital of the Balearic Islands in Spain.

Special sessions complement the regular technical program by highlighting new and emerging research topics, or innovative applications of established theoretical approaches. The topic of a special session proposal should be timely and compelling.

While we welcome special sessions in all areas of Nanotechnology, priority will be granted to proposals focusing on aspects inherent to the research topics of interest to the IEEE-NANO scientific community. High consideration will be given to proposals for the discussion of particularly-relevant open problems, which currently limit the scope of the respective applications.

The participation of speakers from the industry in a special session is encouraged, and will be positively evaluated during the assessment of the respective proposal.

Please note that each paper, intended for a special session, will be subject to the same peer-review process as any regular paper.

Special Session Proposals

Please submit proposals (maximum 3 pages) in PDF format via e-mail to the Special Session Chair before February 20th 2022. A proposal should include the following information:

    IEEE Open Journal of Nanotechnology (OJ-NANO)
    Special Issue on
    “IEEE-NANOMED 2021: Nano/Molecular Medicine & Engineering”

    IEEE Open Journal of Nanotechnology (OJ-NANO), a new gold fully open access journal launched in 2020 by IEEE Nanotechnology Council, publishes research advancing the theory, design and development of nanotechnology and its scientific, engineering and industrial applications. The journal has an independent editorial board, established peer-review process, is targeting a ten-week rapid publishing schedule and is fully compliant with funder mandates, including Plan S. Your work will be exposed to 5 million unique monthly users of the IEEE Xplore®Digital Library. IEEE OJ-NANO is now indexed in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) by Clarivate Analytics, as well as accepted for inclusion in Scopus®, meaning that articles are discoverable in Web of Science and Elsevier’s abstract & citation database! This development indicates increased visibility and profile for both the journal and its published articles, demonstrating IEEE OJ-NANO is a reliable and high-quality source of information in the field of nanotechnology. Furthermore, ESCITM indexing is a necessary precursor to a journal being accepted in Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE)TM with an Impact Factor. IEEE OJ-NANO is now under consideration for SCIE.

    IEEE OJ-NANO will devote a special issue/section on “IEEE-NANOMED 2021: Nano/Molecular Medicine and Engineering” to a collection of papers highlighting research and technology development in the field of nanobiotechnology, molecular engineering, micro/nano-fluidics, micro/nano-system integration, nano-biology and nanomedicine. IEEE Nanotechnology Council sponsors the 15th IEEE International Conference on Nano/Molecular Medicine & Engineering (IEEE-NANOMED 2021) held on 15-18 November 2021 to foster interaction between physicians, scientists and engineers in these emerging areas.

    NOTE: IEEE OJ-NANO will waive 25% of the APC (Article Publishing Charge) for papers accepted for publication in the NANOMED 2021 special issue!
