2023 DL Nominations–Deadline: 1 October 2022

More Information

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is seeking nominations for distinguished lecturers. The nomination deadline is 1 October 2022. 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 activities of the Nanotechnology Council chapters and student branches. 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 1 January until 31 December of 2023. The Lecturers serve for a one-year term and may be reappointed for one additional year with the approval of the NTC Distinguished Lecturer Committee. A budget will be provided to each Lecturer to give lectures for NTC Chapters and Branches based on the 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.

Candidates for DLs may be nominated by any current IEEE member, using the IEEE NTC Distinguished Lecturer Nomination Form. Self-nomination is not accepted. Endorsements are not required but are recommended.

The selection of distinguished lectures will be made by the Distinguished Lecturer Committee, a subcommittee of the Education Committee chaired by the VP Educational Activities, and approved by the NTC ExCom.

Please submit the nomination by midnight (US Pacific Time) on 1 October 2022, via email to the VP Educational Activities, Lixin Dong, or online using the form found on the website.

IEEE Nanotechnology Council/ Standards Committee & Programmable Quantum Simulator Working Group Meeting

IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) invites you to participate in the Working Group for IEEE P3155™, Standard for Programmable Quantum Simulator. Next Meeting July 15.

The quantum simulator (i.e., one controllable quantum system simulates another) has a quantum advantage over classical supercomputers that fail by exponential explosion (i.e., number of parameters grows exponentially with the quantum system size). This standard defines programming methods of quantum simulators according to analog (i.e., target Hamiltonian), digital (i.e., non-native Hamiltonian evolution) and hybrid (i.e., quantum-quantum or quantum-classical architectures) devices for the simulation of quantum phenomena beyond classical computing applications. It includes algorithms to represent the nano-scale properties of quantum simulation devices, and excludes any proposal for the architecture of quantum simulators.

Next Meeting Date: Friday, 15 July 2022
Time: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM EDT

Meeting registration is required.

For additional information and how to participate, contact the IEEE P3155™ Working Group Chair, Jonathan J. Attia, at jja@ieee.org or the IEEE SA Program Manager, Vanessa Lalitte, at v.lalitte@ieee.org.

The 2021 Nanotechnology Council Chapter of the Year Award goes to the IEEE Nanotechnology Student Branch Chapter at IIT Indore. See https://ieee.ntc.iiti.ac.in/

“For creating an interactive platform to incorporate design, and development of nanotechnology and it’s scientific, engineering, and industrial applications”

The IIT Indore NTC Student Chapter is actively involved in the technical domain by organizing technical events such as Distinguished Lecturer Program, Mini Colloquia and sponsoring/co-sponsoring various conferences, webinars and workshops, membership drives, opportunities to network with peers, the Resource Center, environmental awareness campaigns and promotional activities with the objective of sustainable developmental growth.

The members of the Chapter are striving to create an interactive platform for young professionals like academicians, scientists, technologists and engineers to discuss, explore and collaborate in the domains of semiconductor, nanoelectronics, photonics, optoelectronics, photovoltaic, biomedical sensors and memory devices.

 

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) Chapter of the Year Award is intended to encourage a successful and effective overall performance of the Chapter in terms of its activities. Exemplary Chapters must have a high number of activities and creativity.  The Chapter must consistently be active in organizing activities throughout the year.

A new Industrial Advisory Committee (IAC) is coming soon to the IEEE Nanotechnology Council.

Our main goal is to promote and sustain robust industry engagement across the NTC. In coordination with IEEE Nanotechnology Council leadership, IAC will partner with leading industry experts in (nano)manufacturing, (nano)metrology/(nano)characterization, (nano)materials, modeling/computation, consulting and nanotechnology start-ups to curate stimulating activities and useful technical trainings. We envision activities like IAC-sponsored webinars from equipment manufacturers that highlight advances in characterization/sensitivity/throughput or perhaps a novel in-line quality control capability.

Other strategic duties for the IAC include providing activities for continuing education credit opportunities for IEEE NTC professional engineers; assisting the IEEE Nanotechnology Council’s leadership with industry-related outreach initiative development; or helping our Chapters and NTC-sponsored Conference Organizers with grass-roots industry engagement.

As a new committee, our mission will reflect the unique personalities and professional experiences of our founding membership. Thus, if you work in an industrial position, or hold an academic position with strong industry ties and have interest in joining this Committee, we would love to hear from you!

A brief response (use form below) with your affiliation, how long you have worked in industry and whether you are active in any of the IEEE NTC groups or chapters would be a great start. A short Bio or CV would be a plus, but is not required. Our goal is to form a committee that is geographically-, career- and gender-diverse and inclusive, with representatives from different engineering/science backgrounds and interests. We will follow up with further information for the first organizational meeting (online) as soon as we reach a critical mass of responses.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at your earliest convenience.

Thank you beforehand for your interest in the foundation of the IEEE NTC Industrial Advisory Committee.

With kind regards, on behalf of the IEEE NTC Industrial Advisory Committee,

Dan Gopman (daniel.gopman@ieee.org) and Val Novosad (novosad@ieee.org).
