The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is calling for proposals for future sites for IEEE NMDC 2022 and 2023.

Deadline 30 June 2020

The IEEE Nanotechnology Materials and Devices Conference (NMDC) aims to develop critical assessment of existing work and future directions in nanotechnology research from every sector in the nanotechnology research field, with a special focus on materials and devices. NMDC 2020 will be held in Nanjing, China, and NMDC 2021 in Vancouver, Canada. Past locations of the NMDC have been in Asia (Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore), USA (California, Michigan, Hawaii, Alaska, Portland), and Europe (Sicily, France, Stockholm). NMDC typically runs between mid-September and mid-October, with the later dates preferred since IEEE NANO runs in late July.

We are now seeking proposals for IEEE NMDC 2022 which is expected to run in IEEE Region 9 (South & Central America) for the first time, and for IEEE NMDC 2023 which is expected to run in IEEE Region 8 (Europe & Africa.) This Call for Proposals is a year earlier than usual for NMDC 2023 to give organizers more planning time than in the past.

For conference history, visit http://www.ieeenmdc.org/.

Early indication of an intention to submit a proposal is strongly recommended. Candidates for NMDC 2022 and 2023 will be expected to present an informal 5-10 minute “Proposal in preparation” at the online NTC Excom and Adcom meetings in July 2020.

Proposal deadline:
30 June 2020 for both NMDC 2022 and NMDC 2023.

If you access IEEE Xplore(R) Digital Library through your institution and you are having access issues when working remotely, try these tips for remote access, or contact IEEE for help.

March 31st, 2020

 

IEEE realizes that many are directly or indirectly engaged in the fight against COVID-19 and its effects on global health and safety, research, infrastructure, communications, and more. IEEE has identified articles from the IEEE Xplore digital library that may help researchers understand and manage different aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic and technologies that can be leveraged to combat it.

All content in this collection is now free to access, with additional rights for all types of reuse, including full text and data mining, and analysis.

We are continually monitoring the developments and will update the IEEE Xplore https://ieeexplore.ieee.org content periodically.

Thank you for your support of our shared mission to advance technology for humanity.

3M-NANO is the annual International Conference on Manipulation, Manu­facturing and  Measurement on the Nanoscale; it will be held on 3-7 August 2020 in Xi’an, China. The ultimate ambition of this conference series is to bridge the gap between nanosciences and engineering sciences, aiming at technology opportunities and new markets. The advanced technologies for manipulation, manufacturing and measurement at nanoscale promise novel revolutionary products and methods in numerous areas of application. Scientists working in research fields related to 3M-NANO topics are invited to submit papers. All accepted full papers (presented at the conference and following IEEE format) will be submitted in IEEE Xplore database and Ei Compendex. Selected papers will be recommended for publication in the IEEE Trans. on Automation Science & Engineering, Int. J of Nanomanufacturing, IFAC Mechatronics, Int. J of Optomechatronics, J of Micro-Bio Robotics, Journal of Bionic Engineering, Light (Science & Applications), Optics and Precision Engineering, Micromachines and other SCI/Ei journals.

 

Venue: Xi’an, the eternal city, is one of the oldest cities in the world with a vivid and rich history and culture, records the great changes of the Chinese nation just like a living history book, called Chang’ an in ancient times. It is not only the birthplace of the Chinese Nation, but also the birthplace of human civilization in Asia and the cultural center of prehistoric civilization. During Xi’an’s 3,100 year development, 13 dynasties placed their capitals here. So far, Xi’an enjoys equal fame with Athens, Cairo, and Rome as one of the four major ancient civilization capitals. Xi’an is the capital of Shaanxi province, located in the southern part of the Guanzhong Plain. With the Qinling Mountains to the south and the Weihe River to the north, it is in a favorable geographical location surrounded by water and hills. It has a semi-moist monsoon climate and there is a clear distinction between the four seasons. Except the colder winter, any season is relatively suitable for traveling.

In his President’s Report in the December 2019 Newsletter, Past-President Yonhua (Tommy) Tzeng reviewed some of the recent activities and achievements of the NTC. Under Tommy’s leadership, the NTC has indeed achieved much and has undergone a number of notable changes in the past two years, some of which will be mentioned again below.

Most members of the NTC community know that IEEE councils do not have individual members and that instead, they have “member societies,” in the NTC’s case 23 IEEE technical societies which express an interest in nanotechnology and seat two representatives on the NTC Administrative Committee (AdCom), one voting and one-non-voting. For some purposes, the individual members of these 23 societies can be regarded as NTC “members,” but obviously this overstates the number who are actually interested in the NTC fields of interest. So IEEE introduced a mechanism whereby IEEE members could indicate their interest by checking a box when renewing their membership (or by editing their IEEE member profile on-line) to become no-cost “IEEE Interest members.” In parallel, the NTC developed a social media community that we can call “Facebook members,” and full credit for this latter initiative belongs to Tommy. Currently, there are roughly 15,000 IEEE Interest and Facebook members, all of whom get the NTC Newsletter. This dramatic increase in the number of nanotechnology professionals being reached by the NTC is probably the most significant recent advance in the achievement of the NTC mission.
