The IEEE Nanotechnology Materials and Devices Conference (NMDC) was founded in 2005. NMDC is an annual conference sponsored by the IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC). NMDC aims to develop critical assessment of existing work and future directions in nanotechnology research including nanomaterials and fabrications, nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, devices, and integration. This conference will bring together key researchers from every sector in the nanotechnology research field, with a special focus on materials and devices.
NMDC publishes proceedings in IEEE Xplore.
Each conference has an organizing a program committees, and is held in venue selected by the NTC from proposals. The goal is to have three years venues (current year and two following) active for planning and development purposes.
Past Conferences Archives are found here.
