******ACM NanoCom 2020******
7th ACM International Conference on Nanoscale Computing and Communication (https://nanocom.acm.org)

September 23-25, 2020
College Park, MD, USA

Submission deadline (regular and short papers): EXTENDED to May 15, 2020

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 7th ACM International Conference on Nanoscale Computing and Communication (ACM NanoCom 2020) aims to further grow the research community that contributes to nanocomputing and communications, and to stimulate the knowledge transfer to industries.

ACM NanoCom 2020 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 environments
[This includes
** 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
[This includes,
** Design and formal methods for specifying components and parameters
** Experimental demonstration 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 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

Important Dates
- Full paper due: April 15 extended to May 15, 2020
- Short papers due: May 1 extended to May 15, 2020
- Notification of Acceptance: June 30, 2020
- Camera ready paper due: July 31, 2020

Paper Submission
Papers submitted to ACM NanoCom 2020 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 NanoCom 2020 accepts both regular and short papers.

Regular papers are limited to 6 pages including figures and references. They should describe novel advances in topics within the scope of the conference. Authors may submit a 7-page manuscript for review, but an extra page charge of $100 is required for accepted papers.

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, as coordinated by the Technical Program Committee.
