Download Call for Papers (PDF)

The 4th International Conference on Manipulation, Automation and Robotics at Small Scales (MARSS) is held from 01-05 July 2019 in Helsinki, Finland General Chairs: Quan Zhou (FI) and Pasi Kallio (FI), Program Chairs: Just Herder (NL), Ronald Pelrine (US), and Yuen Kuan Yong (AU). The conference is the flagship forum for cross-disciplinary R&D communities related to manipulation and automation (incl. measurement and characterization) at micro/nano scales as well as to all kinds of small scale robots and their applications.

We cordially invite you to attend and contribute to the conference. The conference offers several Keynote talks, about 12-15 plenary talks and parallel technical sessions (oral presentations only). Full or short papers on MARSS-related topics are invited<>. Presented full papers will be submitted for inclusion into the IEEE Xplore® digital library. Selected full papers can be published by Journal of Micro-Bio Robotics (Springer Nature). The expected number of participants is about 250.

Please consider organizing a Special Session at MARSS2019. You may check the website for details<>. Organizer(s) of a Special session (at least 5 registered presentations required) will benefit from appreciation allowance.

Important Dates:
Full paper submission (5-6 pages): February 15, 2019 (no extension possible)
Short paper submission (1-3 pages): May 15, 2019 (no extension possible)

Special session proposals: February 15, 2019 (speakers with full paper submission)
May 15, 2019 (speakers without full paper submission)

We look forward to meeting you in Helsinki!

MARSS2019 is technically sponsored by the IEEE Robotics & Automation Society and the IEEE Nanotechnology Council.

Request for proposals for the 2019 IEEE Summer School on Nanotechnology

(Download PDF version)

History: The IEEE Nanotechnology Council ( 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.
