Call for Nominations – 2018 IEEE Nanotechnology Distinguished Lecturers

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is seeking nominations for its 2018 distinguished lectures. The NTC has created a distinguished lecturers program to enhance the visibility of NTC among nanotechnology societies. The NTC Distinguished Lecturers are appointed to honor excellent speakers who have made technical, industrial or entrepreneurial contributions of high quality to the field of nanotechnology and science, and to enhance the technical programs of the Nanotechnology Council chapters and conferences. Consideration is given to having a well-balanced variety of speakers who can address a wide range of topics of current interest in the fields covered by the Society.

The term for the Lecturers is from January 1 until December 31 of 2018. The Lecturers serve for a one year term, and may be reappointed for one additional year with approval of the NTC Distinguished Lecturer Committee. A budget will be provided each Lecturer to give lectures for NTC Chapters and NTC Conferences based on availability of funding through the NTC. DLs are expected to give a minimum of 2 lectures per year as part of their commitment to serve.

Candidates for DLs may be nominated by any current IEEE member, using the IEEE NTC Distinguished Lecturer Nomination Form. Self-nomination is not accepted.

The selection of distinguished lectures will be made by the Distinguished Lecturer Committee, a subcommittee of Technical Activities Committee (TAC) and approved by the NTC ExCom.

Please submit the online using this nomination form, by midnight (US Pacific Time) August 20, 2017.


Reminder – Call for Proposals for Future IEEE NTC Sponsored Conference Sites

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is calling for proposals for future sites for IEEE NANO 2020 and for IEEE NMDC 2019.

Early indication of an intention to submit a proposal is strongly recommended. Candidates for hosting will be expected to present an informal 5-10 minute “Proposal in preparation” at the NTC Excom and Adcom meetings at NANO 2017 in Pittsburgh, USA. (The presentation can be done remotely, on-line.)

Proposals may be submitted in PowerPoint, Word, or PDF formats, but PowerPoint files are required for the presentation. A Conference Proposal Reference guide and a PPT template is available on request.

Formal proposals must be e-mailed prior to the appropriate deadline of 15-Oct-2017.

See for details on making a submission.
