Request for proposals for the 2019 IEEE Summer School on Nanotechnology

Thursday, October 25th, 2018

Request for proposals for the 2019 IEEE Summer School on Nanotechnology

(Download PDF version)

History: The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (http://ieeenano.org/about) 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.

UPDATE: Submission deadline extended to 31-Oct

The Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is seeking nominations for distinguished lectures. The NTC has created a distinguished lecturers program to enhance the visibility of NTC among nanotechnology societies. The NTC Distinguished Lecturers are appointed to honor excellent speakers who have made technical, industrial or entrepreneurial contributions of high quality to the field of nanotechnology and science, and to enhance the technical programs of the Nanotechnology Council chapters and conferences. Consideration is given to having a well-balanced variety of speakers who can address a wide range of topics of current interest in the fields covered by the Society.

The term for the Lecturers is from January 1 until December 31 of 2019. The Lecturers serve for a one year term, and may be reappointed for one additional year with approval of the NTC Distinguished Lecturer Committee. A budget will be provided each Lecturer to give lectures for NTC Chapters and NTC Conferences based on availability of funding through the NTC. DLs are expected to give a minimum of 2 lectures per year as part of their commitment to serve.
