Note: For authors, in addition to the 2016 NMDC Conference Proceedings, as for previous editions of IEEE NMDC we encourage you to submit an extended version (paper) of your contribution to the Special Issue of IEEE Trans. Nanotechnology (IEEE TNANO). You are allowed to keep the same title as the one you have used for the NMDC Conference Proceedings. The submitted manuscripts will be subjected to a standard procedure of reviewing as the IEEE TNANO is a peer-review journal. You can find more information on the conference web-site or on the following link
We are looking forwards to see you in Toulouse!!!
