IEEE NTC 2021 Summer Schools Announced

Saturday, June 26th, 2021

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council is pleased to announce that two summer school proposals are approved. Program details and registration option will be announced.

2021 IEEE NTC Romania Summer School on Nanotechnology
“Nanomaterials & Nanotechnologies for Advanced Energy Systems”

Proposed dates: 5 days (September 20-24th)
Proposer:
•    Prof. Eden Mamut, Institute for Nanotechnologies and Alternative Sources of Energy, Ovidius University of Constanta, Romania, email: emamut@univ-ovidius.ro

The aim of the summer school is to offer a holistic approach on the development of advanced energy systems integrating nanomaterials and nanotechnologies.

The theme of the summer school is the holistic approach in developing “safe-by-design” advanced energy systems integrating nanomaterials and nanotechnologies for performance improvement, reduction of environmental impact and the substitution of critical materials. The advanced energy systems are referring to fuel cells, thermoelectric convertors, hybrid solar panels and electro-opto-chemical reactors.

 

IEEE Region 9 ‘2021 IEEE NTC Latin America Summer School on Nanotechnology (2021 IEEE LASSNANO)
“Sustainable electronics and abundant nanomaterials from natural sources”

Proposed dates: 2 days (1st day: Design, modeling, simulation; and 2nd day: Fabrication).
Proposers:
•    Camilo Tellez Villamizar, RF-MEMS Research Group, Universidad Católica de Colombia, Bogotá, Colombia. E-mail: camilo.tellez@ieee.org 
•    Guilherme Brasil Pintarelli, Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC), Florianopolis, Brazil. E-mail: gbpintarelli@ieee.org

Currently, there are over 100 university groups in Latin America researching nanotechnology and over 250 companies which develop or apply nanotechnology to final products. Despite encouraging numbers, it is known that nanotechnologies face two main challenges in Latin America: the implementation for the interests of society and the lack of qualification at different educational levels. The IEEE NTC summer school in Latin America may be one of the sparks to address those problems.

Based on the mission of IEEE NTC, the 2021 IEEE LASSNANO plans lectures and workshops to provide training and connect parties interested in nanotechnologies. The 2021 IEEE LASSNANO theme is ‘Sustainable electronics and abundant nanomaterials from natural sources’, and more specifically their usage in Latin America. The lectures will be experts in the field of nanotechnology in industry, academia, and government. We target senior undergraduates, graduate students, post-docs, and researchers, practitioners, and others seeking to explore new career areas.

 

Request for proposals for 2021 IEEE Summer School on Nanotechnology

Friday, April 9th, 2021

Download RFP (PDF)

Deadline 20-May-21

Call for proposals: The IEEE Nanotechnology Council is requesting proposals for 2021 Summer School which should be organized along some of the themes typically covered in the call for abstracts of the yearly IEEE NANO meeting, the flagship IEEE Nanotechnology Conference.  These include a wide range of nanoscience and nanotechnology topics, encompassing nanofabrication; nanomanufacturing; nanomaterials; nanobiomedicine; nanoenergy; nanoplasmonics; nanoelectronics; nanosensors and nanoactuators; nanorobotics; and characterization and modeling of nanostructures and devices.

The IEEE Summer School on Nanotechnology should be geared towards senior undergraduates, graduate students, post-docs, and researchers and practitioners could deepen and broaden their skills in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Based on the success of the previous Summer Schools, it is expected that the attendance at the school should be around 50 to 100 participants. The main objective is to stimulate future generations to stay abreast of these rapidly evolving fields, and to foster participation in the adventure of research that will lead to the next generation of nanopioneers.

Al inicio del siglo XX, la física moderna empezó a revelar tímidamente las muy diferentes propiedades que la materia exhibía cuando sus dimensiones características disminuían a la escala de los átomos. Esta fue la semilla que décadas después permitió el nacimiento de la nanotecnología.  Esta rama del conocimiento está determinada por una colaboración intima entre ciencia, ingeniería y tecnología en constante evolución.

Los más recientes avances en nanotecnología han permitido la fabricación de materiales y dispositivos con longitudes características que pueden acercarse a unos pocos nanómetros. Estos nuevos materiales nanoestructurados son cada vez más importantes en nuestras vidas, debido a las propiedades inusuales que exhiben en el reino de lo nano. Algunos ejemplos incluyen las nanopartículas, los nanopilares, los puntos cuánticos, las películas delgadas, los nanotubos los nanocompuestos, entre otros. Estos materiales abarcan un gran número de aplicaciones en diversos campos, incluyendo la energía fotovoltaica, que tiene como objetivo convertir la luz solar en electricidad, o la termoeléctrica que transforma la energía térmica de un gradiente de temperatura en energía eléctrica. Estas nuevas tecnologías se presentan como una solución muy atractiva a los crecientes problemas ambientales y limitaciones de recursos energéticos. En esta webinar, recorreremos los principales aspectos de la nanotecnología, exploraremos los avances más recientes y discutiremos las aplicaciones tecnológicas, científicas y comerciales emergentes.

Dr. Juliana Jaramillo Fernandez is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND PSPHERE- postdoctoral fellow at the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Barcelona, Spain. Previously, she was a postdoctoral researcher at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm. She obtained her PhD from CENTRALESUPÉLEC (France) in 2015 with a thesis on Thermal Nanosciences and M.Sc in Materials Science at Université de Limoges (France) in 2011. The same year, Juliana got her Bachelor degree in Engineering Physics at EAFIT University in Colombia. Currently, she is using her expertise on micro and nanoscale heat transfer to develop sustainable thermal management solutions that can significantly reduce the current high energy footprint of modern thermoregulation technologies. She is developing new passive systems that only make use of non-toxic materials, while developing further understanding on thermal energy transport via surface phonon polaritons. Her research focuses on phonon engineering, heat transfer in semiconductor nanostructures, tailoring physical properties of low-dimensional materials and controlling thermal transport within nanostructures. Earlier this year, she was conferred the Best Postdoc Paper Award 2018-2019, on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Sciences at the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology for her work on thermofunctional materials for radiative cooling. Moreover, she was honored with The Collider Tech award in 2019 by the Mobile World Capital BCN, a prize for research projects selected to create disruptive tech start-ups.
