IEEE NMDC 2015 Preliminary Speaker Line-up


The 2015 IEEE Nanotechnology Materials and Devices Conference (IEEE NMDC 2015) will be held in
Anchorage, Alaska on September 13-16, 2015.

Note: Submissions are still open – the deadline for abstract/paper submission is July 10, 2015.

IEEE NMDC is a well received international conference sponsored by IEEE Nanotechnology Council. It has been held annually rotating in different parts of the world. For example, IEEE NMDC 2014 was held in ACI Castello, Italy and IEEE NMDC 2013 was held in Tainan, Taiwan. This is the tenth year anniversary.

  Guideline for paper submission is summarized as follows: 

  1. Submission of a 2-page abstract is required.
  2. If the 2-page extended abstract are reviewed with approval, it will appear in the Conference Proceedings (in IEEE Xplore).

The following are optional:

  1. Expand the 2-page abstract to 4-6-page long for the Proceedings (in IEEE Xplore); or
  2. Write an extended version up to 4-pages with significantly more contents and submit it to ENANO. The 2-page abstract will still appear in the Proceedings (in IEEE Xplore); or
  3. 5. Write a longer extended version with significantly more contents and submit it to TNANO. The 2-page abstract will still appear in the Proceedings (in IEEE Xplore); or
  4. Write a longer extended version with significantly more contents and submit to it TNB. The 2-page abstract will still appear in the Proceedings (in IEEE Xplore).
