6th ACM International Conference on Nanoscale Computing and Communication (
https://http://nanocom.acm.org <https://http/nanocom.acm.org>)

September 25 - 27, 2019

Dublin, Ireland

Submission deadline: 15 April, 2019

*=================== *

*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 6th ACM International Conference on Nanoscale Computing and
Communication (ACM NanoCom 2019) aims to further grow the research
community that contributes to nanocomputing and communications, and to
stimulate the knowledge transfer to industries.

ACM NanoCom 2019 will highlight novel research results and breakthrough
ideas, and identify directions for short and medium term exploitation.
Novel theoretical and experimental research contributions are welcome. The
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

[ This includes,

** Coding, modulation, detection, and estimation

** Channel modeling including free-space propagation and
intra-chip/intra-body propagation

** Devices based on nanomaterials and metamaterials]

** Localization and positioning

* Molecular communication in the biological, chemical, or mechanical

[This includes

** Signal design, detection, estimation, and sensing

** Modeling channels of free diffusion, guided transport, microfluidics,
and in-vivo/in-vitro biological systems

** Molecular communication components including signal sources and

* Interfaces for molecular and electromagnetic nanoscale communications

* Nanoscale communication network protocols for nanosensor and biological

* Simulation tools and experimental testbeds for nanonetworks

[ This includes,

** Design and formal methods for specifying components and parameters

** Experimental demonstrations of nano-communication systems]

* Integration of nano- and traditional macroscale communication systems

* Nano-computing paradigms, including neuromorphic computing, DNA and
molecular computing, membrane computing, quantum computing, and biological

* 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 meta-materials


*Important Dates*


- Regular papers due: April 15, 2019

- Short papers due: May 1, 2019

- Notification of Acceptance: June 30, 2019

- Camera ready paper due: July 31, 2019


*Paper Submission*


Papers submitted to ACM NanoCom 2019 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

Paper submissions should follow the ACM double-column format for
conferences. ACM NanoCom 2019 accepts both regular and short papers.

Regular papers are nominally limited to 6 pages including figures and
references. 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 poster sessions.

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