Scope of the Papers

The 1st ACM International Conference on Nanoscale Computing and Communication (ACM NanoCom 2014) will be held on May 13-14, 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from diverse disciplines that can foster and develop new communications and computing paradigms for nanoscale devices.

Due to this highly inter-disciplinary field of research, the conference aims to attract researchers and academics from various fields of study such as electrical and electronic engineering, computer science, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, bio-engineering, bio-technology, materials science, nanotechnology, who have an interest in computing and communications at the nanoscale.

We invite submissions to ACM NanoCom 2014 with original (unpublished and not currently under review) and novel contributions on nanoscale communication in areas including (but not limited to), the following:

  • Nano-Electromagnetic (EM) communication
    • Graphene-based nano-antennas
    • EM channel modeling
    • Terahertz Band communication
  • Infrastructure for molecular communication nanonetworks
    • Molecular diffusion
    • Flagellated bacteria
    • Molecular motors
  • Information theoretical approaches to nanoscale communication
    • Information/network theory modeling
    • Capacity bounds and theorems for various nanoscale channels
    • Transceiver and modulation optimization
    • Nanoscale and molecular source and channel coding
  • Protocols and architectures for nano communications
    • Network architectures, topologies, coverage/connectivity
    • Relay, broadcast, and MAC mechanisms
    • Synchronization, routing/addressing
    • Nanoscale and molecular source and channel coding
    • Reliable information coding, error control
    • Energy effiency
  • Nano computing
    • DNA, enzyme and membrane computing
    • Nano/molecular electronics
    • Molecular motors
  • Internet of Nano Things (IoNT)
    • Service and application models for nano things
    • Middleware design for nanonetwork interface
    • Security for nano communication networks
    • Wearable nanoscale sensor networks
    • Software and programming paradigms for nanonetworks
  • Privacy, Security and Trust in nanonetworks
  • Future emerging applications of nano/molecular communication
    • Smart Health and Big Data
    • Smart City
    • Sports Applications and Systems

Submission Guidelines

Papers submitted to ACM NanoCom 2014 must be original, not previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere, and they must not be submitted to any other event or publication during the entire review process. aper submissions should follow the ACM double-column format for conferences. A maximum of 9 pages are allowed for each paper, all figures and references included. Submitted papers will undergo a peer review process, coordinated by the Program Committee. All accepted paper will be published by ACM and submitted for indexing by ISI, EI Compendex, Scopus, Google Scholar and many more. In addition to the main conference, ACM NanoCom 2014 will also have a series of special tracks and poster sessions.

To submit a paper, please use the instructions here.

ACM reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference if the paper is not presented at the conference.
