The nanotechnology revolution is founded upon the fascinating progress in nanoscale materials and devices. Researchers are contributing new ideas from a wide range of disciplines, including materials science, biology, biomedicine, engineering, physics, and chemistry. To make interesting research presented at the 14th IEEE 2019 Nanotechnology Materials and Devices Conference widely available, in expanded form and in one publication, IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) is extending a Call for Papers for a Special Section reflecting the scope of the conference. Submitted manuscripts will undergo a full peer review process. Submissions are welcome, and all interested 2019 NMDC participants are encouraged to submit. Authors who were attendees are requested to significantly expand the previous conference version to contain substantial new technical material, as per TNANO and IEEE restrictions on duplicated publications and the competitive acceptance process.

Submissions that reflect the Conference Scope and current state of the field are welcome in areas including but not limited to:

  • Nanoelectronics and CMOS
  • Nanophotonics, Metamaterials and Plasmonics

Plans for NTC Conferences due to COVID-19 Pandemic

Saturday, June 6th, 2020


The status of the following IEEE NTC Conferences impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic:

IEEE-NANO (IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology)

  • Considering the present circumstances related to COVID-19, the Conference Committee of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council and the Montreal organizers of the 20th IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology 2020 (IEEE NANO 2020) decided jointly that IEEE NANO 2020 must convert to an all-virtual format from July 29th to 31st of 2020. See website
  • The physical NANO 2020 conference in Montreal is now moved to 2021 and becomes the 21st IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology (IEEE NANO 2021) to be held July 28-30, 2021. Abstracts previously submitted to IEEE NANO 2020 (Montreal) and not presented at the virtual NANO 2020 will be transferred to the NANO 2021, for which an additional call for papers will be open Nov 15th, 2020 – Jan 31st, 2021. Look for further information on their website at, which will go live according to tradition at the conclusion of NANO 2020.
  • NANO 2021 planned in Majorca, postpone to 2022.


IEEE-NMDC (IEEE Nanotechnology Materials and Devices Conference)

  • For the best interests of the public health safety and conference experience and in view of the continuing uncertainty from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are here announcing that IEEE NMDC 2020 planned on October 18-21 in Nanjing, China will postpone to 2022 (eg become NMDC 2022) on October 16-19, 2022, still in Nanjing. See website for announcements.
  • In place of NMDC 2020 we will be organizing a virtual event in October, details will be announced.
  • NMDC 2021, colocated with CEIDP 2021, is to be held at the Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel, Oct. 17-20, 2021, Vancouver, Canada.

Solicitation of hosting proposals is open for NMDC 2023.


IEEE NEMS (IEEE international Conference on Nano/Micro Engineered and Molecular Systems)

Friday, May 1st, 2020

Considering the present circumstances related to COVID-19, the Conference Committee of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council and the local organizers of the 20th IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology 2020 (IEEE NANO 2020) have decided to modify the format of IEEE NANO 2020 as follows:

  • To contributors of IEEE NANO 2020 who want to present their work and have their conference papers presented and published in 2020, despite the very difficult situation, we will provide a virtual solution to IEEE NANO 2020. Shortly we will send out a survey with some preliminary information to estimate the number of participants to this virtual event. More details will follow as firm arrangements are made.
  • To contributors of IEEE NANO 2020 who prefer to visit Montreal and present their conference papers on-site, we announce that the 21st IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology 2021 (IEEE NANO 2021) will be held in Montreal, July 28-30, 2021. Abstracts submitted to IEEE NANO 2020 and not presented to the virtual event will be transferred to the 21st edition. Besides, an additional call for papers will be opened Nov 15th, 2020 – Jan 31st, 2021. 
  • Of course, current IEEE NANO 2020 contributors are encouraged to both present their current papers to the virtual IEEE NANO 2020 and submit further work to IEEE NANO 2021. 


Registration information will be announced shortly. Stay up-to-date by visiting

Call for Proposals for Future IEEE NTC Sponsored Conference Sites

Thursday, April 30th, 2020

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is calling for proposals for future sites for IEEE NMDC 2022 and 2023.

Deadline 30 June 2020

The IEEE Nanotechnology Materials and Devices Conference (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 2020 will be held in Nanjing, China, and NMDC 2021 in Vancouver, Canada. Past locations of the NMDC have been in Asia (Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore), USA (California, Michigan, Hawaii, Alaska, Portland), 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 2022 which is expected to run in IEEE Region 9 (South & Central America) for the first time, and for IEEE NMDC 2023 which is expected to run in IEEE Region 8 (Europe & Africa.) This Call for Proposals is a year earlier than usual for NMDC 2023 to give organizers more planning time than in the past.

For conference history, visit

Early indication of an intention to submit a proposal is strongly recommended. Candidates for NMDC 2022 and 2023 will be expected to present an informal 5-10 minute “Proposal in preparation” at the online NTC Excom and Adcom meetings in July 2020.

Proposal deadline:
30 June 2020 for both NMDC 2022 and NMDC 2023.

IEEE 3M-NANO 2020 – Call for Papers

Monday, February 3rd, 2020


3M-NANO 2020 has been postponed to August 2-6, 2021 due to COVID-19


3-7 August 2020 | Xi’an, China


3M-NANO is the annual International Conference on Manipulation, Manu­facturing and  Measurement on the Nanoscale; it will be held on 3-7 August 2020 in Xi’an, China. The ultimate ambition of this conference series is to bridge the gap between nanosciences and engineering sciences, aiming at technology opportunities and new markets. The advanced technologies for manipulation, manufacturing and measurement at nanoscale promise novel revolutionary products and methods in numerous areas of application. Scientists working in research fields related to 3M-NANO topics are invited to submit papers. All accepted full papers (presented at the conference and following IEEE format) will be submitted in IEEE Xplore database and Ei Compendex. Selected papers will be recommended for publication in the IEEE Trans. on Automation Science & Engineering, Int. J of Nanomanufacturing, IFAC Mechatronics, Int. J of Optomechatronics, J of Micro-Bio Robotics, Journal of Bionic Engineering, Light (Science & Applications), Optics and Precision Engineering, Micromachines and other SCI/Ei journals.


Venue: Xi’an, the eternal city, is one of the oldest cities in the world with a vivid and rich history and culture, records the great changes of the Chinese nation just like a living history book, called Chang’ an in ancient times. It is not only the birthplace of the Chinese Nation, but also the birthplace of human civilization in Asia and the cultural center of prehistoric civilization. During Xi’an’s 3,100 year development, 13 dynasties placed their capitals here. So far, Xi’an enjoys equal fame with Athens, Cairo, and Rome as one of the four major ancient civilization capitals. Xi’an is the capital of Shaanxi province, located in the southern part of the Guanzhong Plain. With the Qinling Mountains to the south and the Weihe River to the north, it is in a favorable geographical location surrounded by water and hills. It has a semi-moist monsoon climate and there is a clear distinction between the four seasons. Except the colder winter, any season is relatively suitable for traveling.
