Scope of the Papers

The 2nd ACM International Conference on Nanoscale Computing and Communication (ACM NanoCom 2015) will be held on September 21-22, 2015 in Boston, Massachusetts, 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We invite submissions to ACM NanoCom 2015 with original (unpublished and not currently under review) and novel contributions on nanoscale communication in areas including (but not limited to), the following:

  • Electromagnetic communication
    • Plasmonic and nanophotonic devices for THz and optical communication, including transceivers and antennas
    • Channel modeling for THz and optical communication, including free-space propagation and intra-chip/intra-body propagation
  • Molecular communication
    • Molecular communication components in the biological/ chemical/ mechanical environments, including molecular signal sources and encoders/decoders
    • Channel modeling for molecular communication, including open and fluidic environments and intra-/inter-cellular propagation
  • Information theory for nanoscale communication networks
  • Network architecture and protocols for nanoscale communication networks
  • Experiments, implementation and testbeds for nanoscale communication networks
  • Interfaces among nanoscale communication networks
  • Energy efficiency in nanoscale communication networks
  • Nano-computing paradigms, including neuromorphic computing, DNA and molecular computing, membrane computing and quantum computing
  • Applications, such as the Internet of Nano-Things or Nano-bio-things, Wireless Nanosensor Networks, Wireless Network on Chip, nanomedicine, targeted drug delivery, and other future and emerging applications

Submission Guidelines

Papers submitted to ACM NanoCom 2015 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. Paper submissions should follow the ACM double-column format for conferences. A maximum of 6 pages are allowed for each paper, all figures and references included. Submitted papers will undergo a peer review process, coordinated by the Program Committee. In addition to the main conference, ACM NanoCom 2015 will have a series of special sessions, as well as poster sessions.

ACM NanoCom this year will also feature a "Work-in-Progress" session. This is short presentation session allowing researchers to present on-going and/or future applications of Nano Communications. A maximum of 2 pages are allowed for each paper, all figures and references included. Papers must include in their title "Work in Progress:....title of paper". Please submit the paper through EDAS in the Work-in-Progress track.

The best papers from ACM NanoCom 2015 will be recommended for fast track publication in ACM Journal on Emerging Technologies in Computing Systems and Elsevier Nano Communication Networks. Recommended papers will be required to have extension of 30% and will go through a review process by the journal.

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.
