Call for Proposals for Future IEEE NTC Conference Sites

Saturday, April 6th, 2019

 

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is calling for proposals for future sites for IEEE NANO 2022 and for IEEE NMDC 2021.

Deadline June 30

IEEE NANO 2022:

The annual IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology is the NTC’s flagship event. The conference scope covers a wide range in nanoscience and technology. In particular, it covers nanofabrication, nanomanufacturing, nanomaerials, nanobiomedicine, nanoenergy, nanoplasmonics, nanoelectronics, nanosensors and nanoactuators, characterisation and modelling of nano structures and devices. Research in both experiments and simulation is reported. Industry is encouraged to present its research projects. NANO 2019 and 2020 will be held in Macau, China; Montreal Canada; respectively.

We are now seeking proposals for NANO 2022 which is expected to run in IEEE Regions 10 (Asia). NANO should be run at the end of July, preferably in the last week.

Chapter News – Joint Foothill / Orange County Section Chapter

Friday, February 22nd, 2019

The Joint Foothill / Orange County Section Nanotechnology Council Chapter held its first seminar on January 30, 2019 at CSU Fullerton. The speaker was Dr. Wei Wu, Professor of Electrical Engineering at USC who was a pioneering researcher in the field of nanoimprint lithography and he described research he is now doing using the technology to create nanoscale structures to enable next generation color displays. He also described his work creating collapsible nanofingers to fabricate plasmonic structures with atomic precision. Based on this technology, he studied quantum tunneling in gap plasmons and demonstrated label-free single molecule sensing with Single-Molecule Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy.

There were 29 attendees with the majority being students. Attendees also included engineers and consultants from area companies. The event included networking and the student’s favorite – pizza. The chapter has its own IEEE listserv distribution list now including 100 addresses. Those in the local area can join the chapter list at https://listserv.ieee.org/cgi-bin/wa?A0=IEEESOCALNANO

The Chapter website is found at https://ieee-region6.org/socal-nano/ .

Chapter organizer Cal Poly Pomona Professor Jenny Yu invited all to attend the next event which will feature speaker Dr. Yadong Yi from UC Riverside. She is forming the chapter Executive Committee and welcomes the members to join.
