15th IEEE / ACM International Symposium on Nanoscale Architectures

17-19 July, 2019

Qingdao, China


About NANOARCH 2019

NANOARCH is the annual cross-disciplinary forum for the discussion of novel post-CMOS and advanced nanoscale CMOS directions. The symposium seeks papers on innovative ideas for solutions to the principal challenge faced by integrated electronics in the 21st century: How to design, fabricate, and integrate nanosystems to overcome the fundamental CMOS limitations? In particular, such systems could:

  •  Contain unconventional nanodevices with unique capabilities, e.g., beyond simple switch behavior
  •  Introduce new logic and memory concepts
  •  Involve novel circuit styles
  •  Introduce new computing concepts
  •  Explore security architectures with nanotechnology
  •  Reconfigure and/or mask faults at much higher rates than in CMOS
  •  Require design tools and methodologies fundamental rethinking


Call for Papers

This 15th symposium aims to incorporate several exciting sessions on emerging computing paradigms (e.g., approximate, quantum, neuromorphic, molecular, spintronic), novel nano-based computing architectures, 2D materials (e.g., graphene) nanoelectronics and computing, beyond charge-based computing, emerging memory devices and in memory computing, nanoelectronics for biomedical systems, and to provide extended opportunities for interaction among the participants. In addition to 6-page length Regular Papers, we also invite 2-page Concept Papers presenting less developed but radical and highly innovative work in the area of nanofabrication, nanocomputing, and emerging nanosystem application.

NANOARCH 2019 topics of interest (both theoretical and experimental) include (but are not limited to):

  •  Novel nanodevices and manufacturing/integration ideas with a focus on nanoarchitectures
  •  Nanoelectronic circuits, nanofabrics, computing paradigms and nanoarchitectures
  •  Future and emergent nano-computing paradigms, e.g., approximate, quantum, neuromorphic, molecular, spintronic
  •  Paradigms and nanoarchitectures for computing with unpredictable devices
  •  Emerging memory nano-devices and in memory computing nano-architectures
  •  Security architectures with nanofabrics
  •  Reliability aware computing
  •  2D/3D, hybrid, defect/fault tolerant architecture, integration, and manufacturing
  •  Nanodevice and nanocircuit models, methodologies and computer aided design tools
  •  Fundamental limits of computing at the nanoscale

Significant Dates

Special Session Proposals due: April 5, 2019

Special Session Notification of Acceptance: April 10, 2019

Regular / Special Session Paper Submission: April 21, 2019

Special Session Call

The NANOARCH 2019 technical program will include Special Sessions. Their objective is to complement the regular program with new or emerging topics that are of particular interest to practitioners and experts for highest performance at nanoscale architectures that may also cut across and beyond disciplines traditionally represented at NANOARCH.

We recall that, typically, each Special Session comprises at least 4 presentations. Prospective organizers of Special Sessions should submit proposals delivering the following:

  • Topic Title (approx. 10 words)
  • Organizers Name and Affiliation
  • Session Rationale and Outline (approx. 500 words); the rationale should stress the novelty of the topic and/or its multidisciplinary features (if any)
  • Session Paper List (min. 4 papers without more than 1 per involved research group) including the author(s) affiliation(s), paper title and abstract (approx. 100-200 words)

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic, and the qualifications of organizers and contributors.

After Special Session proposals are approved, manuscripts may be submitted to the special session and should conform to the formatting and electronic submission guidelines of regular NANOARCH papers. The invited papers, which are part of accepted special sessions proposals, will undergo the same review process as Regular and Concept papers. If, at the end of the review process, three (3) or less papers are accepted, the special session will be cancelled and the accepted papers will be moved to regular sessions.

Proposals should be sent via e-mail to the Special Session Chairs by April 5, 2019 at the latest.

Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit of up to 6 pages in length for the Regular Paper Sessions and Special Sessions and 2 pages in length for the Concept Paper Sessions in PDF version, double column with a minimum font size of 10 points on the symposium submission website (EasyChair). Author may choose to make submissions anonymous, although that is not mandatory. The electronic submission will be considered evidence that upon acceptance, the author(s) will present their paper at the symposium. Accepted and presented papers will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore and ACM Digital Library. All manuscripts will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Submissions should be a complete manuscript of novel unpublished work (not to exceed 6 pages of single spaced text, including figures and tables).

Papers must be in the formats described on submissions guidelines and using the IEEE templates that you can find at:
IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings

Accepted and Presented papers will be considered for NANOARCH Best Paper Award, and the conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore and ACM Digital Library as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

After the conference, authors are invited to submit extended paper versions (containing at least 30% but preferably 50% new material), to pass the normal review process, for potential publication in an IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology NANOARCH 2019 Special issue.
