Call for Proposals for Future Sites for IEEE-NANO 2025 and IEEE NMDC 2025

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is calling for proposals for
future sites for IEEE-NANO 2025 and IEEE NMDC 2025

A. Call for proposals for future site for IEEE-NANO 2025

Initial Proposal Deadline: 30 May 2022

The IEEE Nanotechnology Conference (IEEE-NANO) is the flagship IEEE Nanotechnology conference. The conference scope covers a wide range in nanoscience and technology. In particular, it covers nanofabrication, nanomanufacturing, nanomaerials, nanobiomedicine, nanoenergy, nanoplasmonics, nanoelectronics, nanosensors and nanoactuators, characterization and modelling of nano structures and devices. NANO 2021 was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but NANO 2022 is being held in the Balearic Islands, Spain and NANO 2023 in Jeju Island, Korea. Recent conferences were in Macau (2019), Cork (2018), Pittsburgh (2017), Sendai (2016), Rome (2015), and Toronto (2014). NANO 2020 and 2021 were held virtually due to the pandemic. NANO typically runs between mid- to late-July. We are now seeking proposals for IEEE-NANO 2025 which is expected to run in IEEE Region 1-7 (North America) or 9 (South & Central America) .

Initial Proposal deadline: 30 May 2022

Early indication of an intention to submit a proposal is strongly recommended. Candidates for NANO 2025 will be expected to present a 5-10 minute “Proposal in Preparation” based on the initial proposal at the NTC Excom and AdCom meetings in July 2022 held at IEEE-NANO 2022 in Mallorca, Spain. Final proposals are due in October for presentation at the the Fall NTC Excom meeting.

 

PROPOSAL FORMAT:

Initial proposals should be prepared in Power Point presentation format. NTC Conference Proposal Guidelines and a PPT template are available upon request. Proposals should cover:

  • Venue: City (or nearby city for rural locations); visitor access (e.g., daily flights,) with typical travel costs; hotel costs (including wi-fi, breakfast, etc.); tourist information
  • Facilities: Hotel or campus venue if known (with verification of availability for formal proposals); lecture theater and meal capacities
  • Personnel: General Chair(s), Program Chair(s), Treasurer, other volunteer personnel (e.g., program/advisory committees), if known, and any administrative staff or management company
  • Budget information:
    • For informal proposals: Target registration rates, estimated number of attendees, estimated income (registration, tutorials, exhibition, grants/donations, etc.), estimated expenses (meals/receptions/breaks, administrative costs, etc.), other features of interest.
    • For formal proposals: As above, but with more detail covering all budgeted income and expenses in the required IEEE NetSuite spreadsheet format. Note that the (Income-Expense)/Expense ratio must be at least 20%, in accordance with IEEE policy.

Formal proposals must be e-mailed prior to the appropriate deadline to: NTC Vice-President for Conferences Jin-Woo Kim, (jwkim@uark.edu) with copies to Ed Perkins, NTC Secretary (e.perkins@ieee.org).

Contact Jin-Woo Kim, (jwkim@uark.edu) with any questions.

 


B. Call for proposals for future site for IEEE-NMDC 2025

Initial Proposal Deadline: 30 May 2022

The IEEE Nanotechnology Materials and Devices Conference (IEEE-NMDC) aims to develop critical assessment of existing work and future directions in nanotechnology research from every sector in the nanotechnology research field, with a special focus on materials and devices. NMDC 2022 will be held in Nanjing, China and NMDC 2023 in Paestum, Italy. Past locations of the NMDC have been in Asia (Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore), USA (California, Michigan, Hawaii, Alaska, Portland), Canada (Vancouver, BC) and Europe (Sicily, France, Stockholm). NMDC typically runs between mid-September and mid-October, with the later dates preferred since IEEE NANO runs in late July.

We are now seeking proposals for IEEE-NMDC 2025 which is expected to run in IEEE Region 8 (Asia and Pacific).
