Announcing NMDC 2021 Call for Papers

Sunday, October 25th, 2020

16th IEEE Nanotechnology Materials and Devices Conference (IEEE NMDC 2021) Call for Papers

IEEE NMDC 2021 sponsored by IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) will be held in the Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel located in the center of Vancouver, BC, Canada from October 17th to 20th, 2021. The conference will be co-located with another conference – IEEE CEIDP (Conference on Electrical Insulation and Dielectric Phenomena) sponsored by IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS).

IEEE NMDC is a well-received international conference and has been held annually rotating in different parts of the world, having the last two editions in Stockholm, Sweden in 2019 and Virtually (due to COVID-19 restrictions) in 2020. IEEE NMDC aims to highlight current work and future directions in nanotechnology-related research in the areas of nanomaterials and fabrications, nanoelectronics, nano-energy, packaging, nanophotonics, bioengineering, modeling and simulation, devices, and integration. This conference brings together key researchers from every sector in the nanotechnology research field, with a special focus on materials and devices.

CALL for PAPERS

The technical program for NMDC 2021 provides a wide variety of topics that emphasize the role of nanoscale phenomena, materials and devices in established and emerging technological areas. Before submitting abstracts, researchers are encouraged to examine the Technical Program Areas to identify the ones that most closely reflect the emphasis of their work.

3D Nanofabrication by curving, bending, and folding

David Gracias, Professor, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Johns Hopkins University

Abstract:

Conventional VLSI lithographic patterning approaches have revolutionized modern engineering, but they are inherently planar. Recently, researchers have discovered that the interplay between out-of-plane stresses, capillary forces or swelling vs bending rigidity of patterned thin films can be engineered so as to cause spontaneous 2D to 3D shape transformations by curving, bending, and folding in a reproducible and high-throughput manner.

In this talk, the design, assembly, and characterization of such 3D nanostructured materials and devices will be described. The emphasis of our approach has been on enabling mass-production of lithographically micro, nano, and smart 3D devices in a high-throughput manner with diverse materials such as 2D layered materials (e.g. graphene, MoS2), silicon and related materials, polymers (e.g. SU8) and hydrogels. By leveraging the precision of planar lithography approaches such as photo, e-beam, and nanoimprint methodologies, a range of functional patterns can be incorporated into these thin film self-assembling systems so as to provide enhanced functionality for optics, electronics, and medicine. Assembled devices include metamaterials, flexible biosensors, curved microfluidics, drug-delivery capsules, anatomically realistic models for tissue engineering, antennas, e-blocks, sensors, soft-robotic actuators, and untethered surgical tools.

Call for Papers – TNANO Special Section on IEEE NMDC 2019

Thursday, June 18th, 2020

The IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) seeks original manuscripts for a Special Section on: “14th IEEE Nanotechnology Materials and Devices Conference (IEEE 2019 NMDC)”

The nanotechnology revolution is founded upon the fascinating progress in nanoscale materials and devices. Researchers are contributing new ideas from a wide range of disciplines, including materials science, biology, biomedicine, engineering, physics, and chemistry. To make interesting research presented at the 14th IEEE 2019 Nanotechnology Materials and Devices Conference widely available, in expanded form and in one publication, IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) is extending a Call for Papers for a Special Section reflecting the scope of the conference. Submitted manuscripts will undergo a full peer review process. Submissions are welcome, and all interested 2019 NMDC participants are encouraged to submit. Authors who were attendees are requested to significantly expand the previous conference version to contain substantial new technical material, as per TNANO and IEEE restrictions on duplicated publications and the competitive acceptance process.

Submissions that reflect the Conference Scope and current state of the field are welcome in areas including but not limited to:
