Request for proposals for the 2019 IEEE Summer School on Nanotechnology

(Download PDF version)

History: The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (http://ieeenano.org/about) sponsored its first Summer School Program on “Regenerative Nano-Medicine: From Advanced Delivery Systems to Electronic-Based Devices” at Tel-Aviv University, Israel, in June 2016. In the next years, Summer / Fall schools have focused on “N3: Nanomaterials, Nanotools, and Nanodevices” [Montreal, Canada], “Nanoelectronic technologies and devices: From basic principles to highly reliable applications” [Toulouse, France], “Nanotechnology: From Science to Systems and Beyond” [Bangalore, India], and “Nanotechnology for Energy” [Portland, USA]. These schools have been highly successful in educating and training a multinational audience of students, post-docs, and other early career researchers in their chosen topical area. Through this current announcement, the council seeks to continue this important initiative into its fourth year.

Call for proposals and its thematic areas: The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC), in partnership with member societies of NTC, the Electron Devices and the Circuits and Systems societies (EDS and CAS), is requesting proposals for its Sixth Summer School. The school is expected to maintain an educational focus on nanotechnology, which may range from fundamentals in nanomaterials, nanofabrication and nano-characterization to diverse application areas such as nanosensors, nanoactuators, nanobiology and nanomedicine, nano-optics, nanorobotics, nanobiology, nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, DNA nanotechnology, nanomanufacturing, nanopackaging, nanofluidics, nanomagnetics, nano/molecular heat transfer & energy conversion, nanoscale communication and networks, nano/molecular sensors, actuators, and systems, and spintronics.
