Call for papers, on the Track of
  Automation/Assembly/Control for Micro and Nanotechnology
3rd IEEE Conference on Automation Science and Engineering
  (IEEE CASE 2007)

The 3rd annual IEEE Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (IEEE
CASE), sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS), will be
held on September 22 to 25, 2007 in Scottsdale, Arizona, U.S.A.  CASE is an
offspring of the IEEE Transactions of Automation Science and Engineering,
http://www.ieee.org/t-ase. High quality CASE papers will be recommended for
publication in this flagship automation journal.

Recent years have witnessed an exponential growth in the use of a variety of
micron-scale devices and integrated systems in a wide range of applications
and a concentrated effort to structure matter at the nano-scale to take
advantage of the unique properties of nanostructures for novel device and
integrated system applications. In order to make the transition from
structure, to device, and ultimately to system, methods are needed to assemble
nano and micron scale structures controllably and with a high throughput. We
invite you to submit your papers regarding the formation of nano/micro scale
structures, devices, and systems and their control to the Track on
Automation/Assembly for Micro and Nanotechnology. This Track aims to bring
together a multidisciplinary group of researchers (engineers, chemists,
material scientists, physicists, and biologists among others) at the
leading-edge of efforts to develop methods for manufacturing in the nano and
micro domain and efforts to control in this new region of operation. The
following areas are of particular interest; however, authors with other
relevant areas of research are encouraged to submit their manuscript to this

•       Assembly of nano-scale and micro-scale structures and devices
•       Control of the assembly processes in nano and micron scales
•       Control in micro-manufacturing
•       Self-assembly
•       Programmable self-assembly
•       Fault tolerant manufacturing
•       Nano-scale and micro-scale robotics
•       Control of miniature robots
•       Control of robotic swarms
•       Controlling nano-scale and micro-scale biological systems
•       Control of molecular processes
•       Control of nano-scale imaging tools
•       Quantum control
•       Discrete event dynamic systems in micro-manufacturing

Paper Submission
Author(s) should submit full papers electronically in double column PDF
format.  All papers will be peer-reviewed, and the selected ones will be
published in CD-ROM. Six pages are allowed per paper, and detailed
instructions for paper preparation and submission will be available on the
conference web site: http://www.ieee-case.org. Please address all inquiries
regarding the paper submission procedure to the IEEE CASE 2007 Program Chair,
Dr. Mike Tao Zhang, at mike.zhang at cal.berkeley.edu.

Important Dates
April 30, 2007   Submission of papers (FIRM)
June 30, 2007   Paper acceptance notification to authors
July 15, 2007    Final camera-ready papers due
