4th International ICST Conference on Nano-Networks
(Nanowerk News) The Institute for Computer Sciences, Social-Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering (ICST) has announced the dates for this year's International ICST Conference on Nano-Networks on October 18-20, 2009 in Luzern, Switzerland.
The NANO-NET conference positions itself at the intersection of two worlds, namely, emerging nanotechnologies on one side, and Information & Communication Technologies on the other side. One of the standing questions that this conference addresses is: What are the new communication paradigms that derive from the transition from micro- to nano-scale devices? The convergence of nano-technologies with established and novel engineering disciplines such as communication and network theory, sensors and actuators, and biomedical engineering is expected to radically shift our notions about efficient system and network design. Nano- Net provides a unique multidisciplinary forum for the discussion of novel techniques in modeling, design, simulation, and fabrication of nano-scale systems.
The conference invites original technical papers that have not been published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Contributions addressing subjects pertaining to nanotechnology and networking are solicited. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to the following:
Emerging nano-devices and fabrication technologies
Modeling and simulation of nanodevices and systems
