                 CALL FOR PAPERS

               Nano-Robotics Track
 3rd International Conference on Nano-Networks
       Boston, USA, Sept 15-17, 2008


Sponsors: Create-Net, ICST

SCOPE: The Nano-Net conference positions itself at the intersection of
two worlds, namely, emerging nanotechnologies on one-side, and
network/communication theory on the other side. The standing question
that this conference will address is:  What are the new communication
paradigms that derive from the transition from micro- to nano-scale
devices? The related degrees of freedom and constraints associated
with these new technologies will change our notions about efficient
network and system design. Nano-Net provides a multidisciplinary forum
for the discussion of new techniques in modeling, design, simulation,
and fabrication of network and communication systems at the

PAPERS: The conference invites original technical papers that have not
been previously published and are not currently under review for
publication elsewhere. Contributions addressing all subjects
pertaining to nanotechnology & networking are solicited. Suggested
topics for the track on nano-robotics include, but are not limited to,
the following:

- Communication systems and networking protocols for sub-inch robotic systems
- Low-bandwidth coordination schemes for nano-robot teams
- Sub-inch range and bearing devices for inter-robot relative positioning
- Systems of nano-robotic devices
- Applications for nano-robotic swarms

Please refer to http://www.nanonets.org for the full CFP.

PUBLICATION: All submitted papers will be subject to a rigorous
peer-review. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the
Nano-Net Conference Proceedings, and made available online through
Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNICST). Selected
high-quality papers with a strong nanoscale device component will be reviewed
for a Special Issue of the IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology, in an
extended version.

WORKSHOP & TUTORIAL PROPOSALS: Proposals for Special Sessions and
Tutorials are encouraged. Potential Workshop and Tutorial organizers
should submit a proposal of at most 5 pages, including
scope/motivation of the session/tutorial, list of invited papers
(still subject to peer-review) and short-bio of the organizer(s).
Workshops should be submitted by e-mail to: goel at albany.edu,
tutorials to: liyun at research.ge.com.
