Call for Papers

Communication technologies at micro- and nanoscale are essential for tackling numerous challenges in many fields, including ICT, medicine, pharmacology, synthetic biology, and materials science. The interdisciplinary nature of the related research challenges has prompted the creation of new multidisciplinary work groups.

The 5th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Nanoscale Computing and Communication (ACM/IEEE NanoCom 2018) aims at further growing the research community contributing to Nanocomputing and communications and to stimulate the knowledge transfer to industries.

ACM/IEEE NanoCom 2018 will highlight novel research results, stimulate novel and breakthrough ideas, and identify directions for short and medium term exploitation. Both novel theoretical and experimental research contributions are welcome. Conference will feature contributed and invited papers, posters, and keynote addresses in this emerging inter-disciplinary field.

We invite submissions in areas including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Electromagnetic communication at (sub-)THz and optical frequencies
    • Coding, modulation, detection, and estimation
    • Channel modeling including free-space propagation and intra-chip/intra-body propagation
    • Devices based on nanomaterials and metamaterials
  • Molecular communication in the biological, chemical, or mechanical environments
    • Signal design, detection, estimation, and sensing
    • Modeling channels of free diffusion, guided transport, microfluidic, in-vivo/in-vitro biological
    • Molecular communication components including signal sources and encoders/decoders
  • Interfaces for molecular and electromagnetic nanoscale communications
  • Nanoscale communication network protocols for nanosensor and biological networks
  • Simulation tools and experimental testbeds for nanonetworks
    • Design and formal methods for specifying components and parameters
    • Experimental demonstration of nano-communication systems
  • Interworking of nano- and traditional macroscale communication systems
  • Nano-computing paradigms, including neuromorphic computing, DNA and molecular computing, membrane computing, quantum computing, and biological computing
  • Applications, such as the Internet of Nano(-Bio)-things, nanosensor networks, systems on chip, nanomedicine, tissue engineering, future and emerging applications, nanonetworks in exotic materials such as functional meta-surfaces and metamaterials
As in the previous years of the conference, top selected articles presented at the conference will be invited for extended fast track publishing in the Elsevier Nano Communication Networks Journal (IF: 2.77).

Paper Submission

Papers submitted to ACM/IEEE NanoCom 2018 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.

ACM/IEEE NanoCom 2018 accepts both regular and short papers.

Regular papers are limited to 6 pages including figures and references (maximum 1 additional page with over length page charge for an additional fee, if accepted). They should describe novel advances in topics within the scope of the conference.

Short papers are limited to 2 pages including figures and references. They provide an opportunity to present preliminary results and they will be presented in a poster session. 

All submitted papers will undergo a peer review process, coordinated by the Technical Program Committee.

Paper submissions should follow the ACM double-column format for conferences. Please be sure to use the latest ACM templates available at (use the “sample-sigconf.tex” template).

Before using the 2017 ACM consolidated article template, you need to read the instructions file available at above site (instructions are provided for latex and word users). It is important that you follow the instructions provided.

ACM offers 24/7 author support for these templates through their vendor, Aptara. If you have TeX/MS-Word template problems or inquiries please contact

Please apply ACM Computing Classification categories and terms. The templates provide space for this indexing and point authors to the Computing Classification Scheme at:
