IEEEANO 2022 Call for Special Sessions

Wednesday, December 1st, 2021

Download Proposal (PDF)

The IEEE NANO 2022 Organizing Committee invites proposals for Special Sessions to be held during the 22nd IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology (IEEE-NANO 2022), which will be held from the 4th to the 8th of July 2022 at the Auditorium of Palma de Mallorca, which is the capital of the Balearic Islands in Spain.

Special sessions complement the regular technical program by highlighting new and emerging research topics, or innovative applications of established theoretical approaches. The topic of a special session proposal should be timely and compelling.

While we welcome special sessions in all areas of Nanotechnology, priority will be granted to proposals focusing on aspects inherent to the research topics of interest to the IEEE-NANO scientific community. High consideration will be given to proposals for the discussion of particularly-relevant open problems, which currently limit the scope of the respective applications.

The participation of speakers from the industry in a special session is encouraged, and will be positively evaluated during the assessment of the respective proposal.

Please note that each paper, intended for a special session, will be subject to the same peer-review process as any regular paper.

Special Session Proposals

Please submit proposals (maximum 3 pages) in PDF format via e-mail to the Special Session Chair before February 20th 2022. A proposal should include the following information:

May 31 – June 2, 2022
Sheraton New Orleans

The International EIPBN Conference is the premier gathering of scientists and engineers who are dedicated to electron, ion and photon lithography, imaging, and analysis; atomically precise fabrication; nanofabrication process technologies; related emerging technologies, and their applications in a broad spectrum of fields.

This is the 65th meeting of the EIPBN, where top researchers from academia, government laboratories, and industry from around the world meet to present and discuss recent trends and future directions in these technologies.

The conference opens on Tuesday with a short course session in the morning followed by the beginning of a 3-day commercial session featuring materials and equipment vendors. Wednesday opens with the plenary session and a spotlight poster session showcasing the invited and contributed papers. The remainder of the conference will consist of three parallel oral sessions. Presentations (including questions) will be 30 minutes for invited papers and 20 minutes for contributed papers.

An important feature of the program is the poster session, which provides opportunity for extended discussions with the authors. Best Invited, Contributed, and Student Poster awards are presented during the banquet on Thursday evening. We are also looking forward to honoring a newly formed company that best communicates its business model, market, and vision with the Best Startup Award. Throughout the conference there will be several focused workshops and networking events including the welcome reception, the Women in Nanotechnology luncheon, the Student Mentor Mixer, and the Student Recruiting Breakfast.

The impact of instrumentation and measurements on human daily activities is always positively important as well as in nanotechnology issues. Nanoscale is not only a geometric problem but it is, especially, a process of reaching difficult objectives with compared to other ways. In any nanotechnology process, from designing up to testing, via fabrication, characterization, by means of measurements and/or specific instrumentation, is a critical aspect. The workshop intends to offer a forum for discussions and exchanges for different participants.

This important event will be celebrated at the Opole University of Technology Campus in Opole, Poland.

Authors are kindly invited to submit a full manuscript (4-5 pages including references) for oral presentation. Expanded and improved papers of the version published in the symposium proceedings are eligible for post-publication in international reputed journals (IEEE Journals and book series). All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and the submission system has a process to identity and reject fraudulent reviewers and papers. Moreover the process has also an antiplagiarism system.
