Call for Nominations/Applications: Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology

Friday, August 9th, 2019

Nomination/Application Deadline: October 15, 2019

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) invites nominations and applications for the position of Editor-in-Chief for IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO). The Editor-in-Chief appointment is for a two-year term starting January 1, 2020, renewable twice, for a total of six years.

The IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology is devoted to the publication of manuscripts of archival value in the general area of nanotechnology, which is one of the fastest growing and most promising technological developments for the next generation and beyond. There has been significant progress in the field of nanotechnology for the last decade; but, we do not see yet major breakthroughs to change the field’s paradigm and the field is still growing. We will closely monitor the progress of the nano field and will further revise the scope, as needed, to reflect the reality of the discipline.

Editor’s Note

I am delighted to bring you this quarter’s newsletter. In this issue, you can see there is very strong evidence emerging that IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC)’s activities are extremely successful together with the fact that we have formed an IEEE NTC group in the social media with more than 4000 established and young researchers to connect and communicate the current happenings in the nanotechnology. I hope you enjoy this issue and do let us know if there is any topic you’d like to see covered in the future issue.
