About NANOARCH 2018

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

LaTeX intructions

Note: the main problem that occurs with submissions generated with pdflatex is that the fonts are not embedded properly. This most often occurs because vector images included from your LaTeX do not themselves embed their fonts. If we find problems with your PDF, and you are unable to submit a revised version with correctly embedded fonts, we may have to take a less desirable and less safe route: that you submit a PostScript (PS) version, from which we produce PDF.

  1. Please use the “sigconf” proceedings template in the acmart class that you find under 2017 ACM Master Article Template for your submission

  2. The new ACM rights management options mean that the acmart class does not automatically generate the correct copyright block, but you can use some predefined templates. Therefore, please download the acmcopyright.sty from the ACM template page as well. The email received from the ACM rights management system will have informed you of your specific DOI. Unlike in the past, this now needs to be included in your copyright block. There are three different forms of copyright block. You must use the one corresponding to what you selected during the rights management process.
    Please double-check that your produced document matches the details in the email sent to you by the rights management system, and that you have included your full DOI URL.

Please continue reading for additional information on preparing your final paper including the requirements for Page Size, File Naming Scheme, ACM Classification Sections, Images, Figures, Illustrations, 3rd Party Material Permissions, Bad Breaks, Creating an ACM compliant PDF, Optional accompanying thumbnail image and caption.

Page size
The page size for this ACM publication is US Letter Portrait (8.5×11 inches). Submissions that do not conform to the ACM SIG standards, templates, and formats will be returned to the author for corrections and/or alterations.

File naming scheme
Name your final submission according to the ACM convention: firstauthorname.pdf (e.g. JanetSmith.pdf) using the name of the first author.

Title
Must be in Initial Caps Meaning First Letter of the Main Words Should be Made Capital Letters
  • Note the Capital Letter “M” in Must, Meaning, and Main
  • Note the Capital Letter “C” in Caps and Capital
  • Note the Capital Letter “L” in Letter and Letters

Authors’ complete names, email, affiliation and affiliation location
Prior to submitting, be sure to update the final version of your PDF to include all authors full names, and correct affiliation names, location, and other information under the title of the paper. See page 1 of the ACM sample PDF.

Abstract
Authors must include a brief summary (abstract) of their work in the first section of their submission after the title, authors, and affiliation information on the first page. See page 1 of the ACM sample PDF.

References
Authors must include all works cited in their submission in a References section at the end of the paper or extended abstract. See page 4 of the ACM sample PDF.

ACM Classification Sections
The “Categories and Subject Descriptors” and “Keywords” are mandatory by ACM on the first page of your submission after the Abstract. See page 1 of the ACM sample PDF, for information about how these two sections should appear in your submission.

Read this section carefully.Your selections for the three sections are mandatory on the submission page when submitting your final version.

Categories and Subject Descriptors (Mandatory for the first page of your paper): Make sure that your selection included on the first page of your paper are also chosen accordingly on the submission page. Click here for information on the ACM Computing Classification Scheme. The new templates enable you to import required indexing concepts for your article from the ACM Computing Classification System (CCS) using an indexing support tool found in the ACM Digital Library (DL) which generates the necessary LaTeX code once you have selected your terms.

Keywords:
This section is your (author) choice of terms that you would like used to index your work.

Bad breaks
Be sure you do not have bad page breaks or bad column breaks. One example of a bad column break is a “widow.”
A “widow” occurs when the last line of a paragraph that begins at the bottom of one column appears by itself at the top of the next column). If this happens, tighten the previous column to bring it back, or force an additional line of text over to the next column.
Also make sure that Section and Sub-section headings have at least two lines of body text below them when they appear at the end of a page or column.

Third party material
In the event any element used in your material contains the work of third-parties, it is the author/presenter’s responsibility to secure any necessary permissions and/or licenses, and the authors will provide the same permissions in writing to the ACM. If the copyright holder requires a citation to a copyrighted work, it is the authors’ responsibility to include the correct wording and citations to the copyrighted material in their submissions.

Images and figures
Below are some recommendations to ensure good print reproduction of the images, figures, and illustrations utilized in your submission.

(a)Colors and Black & White (Gray Scale) Print Testing. If you have any images in color, please print your paper out in black and white to ensure that the tones and screens used in your images or figures reproduce well in black and white, too. However, your images will appear in full color in any distributed electronic proceedings and in the ACM digital library.

(b)Resolution & CMYK: Figures, charts, and diagrams should use a vector image format (e.g. PDF, SVG). Raster images (e.g. photographs) should be at least 300 or 600 dpi for quality reproduction and saved as .tif images (or other compatible formats that support print-quality resolution). When creating or revising your images for inclusion in the paper, we recommend choosing CMYK (and not RGB) as the color profile.

(c)TIFF/PNG versus JPG (JPEG) images: For raster images (e.g. photos), TIFFs are preferred for press applications where quality takes priority over file size. When TIFFs are compressed (using LZW compression option when saving from Adobe Photoshop, for example), no image data is lost, thus ensuring maximum quality. A JPEG is a compressed image format designed to keep the file size small, which makes it ideal for use in web graphics. However, to achieve this, the JPEG format actually removes precision from the image. This is referred to as a lossy compression system. On a printout, the removed data tends to show up as blocky areas of a solid color, or ghosting near high-contrast changes. At higher print resolutions (a minimum of 200 dpi), there’s usually enough data in the JPEG file for the compression artefacts to be very noticeable.

(d)Rules/Lines: Rules used in your graphs, tables or charts must be at least 0.5 point in stroke and black for quality reproduction. Finer lines and points than this will not reproduce well, even if you can see them on your laser printed hardcopy when checked — your laser printers will usually have a far lower resolution than the imagesetters that will be used.

(e)Fonts: If your figure uses custom or any non-standard font, the characters may appear differently when printed in the proceedings. Remember to check your figure creation to ensure that all fonts are embedded or included in the figure correctly. Be sure that your images do not contain any Type 3 fonts.

(f)Transparency: If a figure or image is assembled from multiple images, the images must be embedded, and layers be flattened or grouped together properly in the file. Transparency must be flattened.

Page numbering, headers, and footers
Your final submission MUST NOT contain any footer or header string information at the top or bottom of each page, nor any page numbering. The submissions will be paginated in a determined order by the chairs and page numbers added to the PDF during the compiling, indexing, and pagination process.

Acknowledgements
It is the contact or submitting author’s responsibility to be sure that any funding or special contribution acknowledgements are included in the final version submitted as required by any research, financial, or other grants received (by using the “Acknowledgements” section before the References section). See page 4 of the ACM sample PDF.

Submitting the Required Files

When your final version is ready, you need to upload using EasyChair your PDF file and alongside your PDF file, you will be required to submit the source files for your paper – all files which were used to create the final output (PDF), be they Word, LaTeX, image files, etc. Please create a single .zip folder containing all the source files used to create the final PDF and name it "papernumberfirstauthorname.zip".
As an accepted author, you have access to the proceedings section of EasyChair.
You will see a confirmation screen after a successful upload to EasyChair. Also, a confirmation email will be sent to the contact’s email address entered on the submission page.
If changes are needed, you will be contacted by one of the publication coordinators in case you need to fix something. If this is true, you will receive specific information about how to revise your submission to meet requirements, and a new deadline will be given to submit the corrected material. You are required by the chairs to adhere to this NEW deadline so publication is not delayed.

Special Session Call


The NANOARCH 2018 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 5 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. 5 papers without more than 2 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 sessions 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, fewer than four (4) papers are accepted, the 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 Chair by March 5, 2018 at the latest.

Keynote Speakers


Chris de Zeeuw

"How we move: From single cells to whole brain networks"

DeZeeuw Prof. Dr. C.I. (Chris) De Zeeuw is professor and chair at the Dept. of Neuroscience of Erasmus MC in Rotterdam, and scientific co-director of the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience of the Royal Dutch Academy of Arts & Sciences (KNAW) in Amsterdam. Chris De Zeeuw started his career in Rotterdam (lab Jan Voogd) where he received in 1990 his PhD degree in medicine Cum Laude. Following his medical studies at the University of Amsterdam and University of Rotterdam he got his medical degree (MD) one year later, again Cum Laude. As a first-year PhD-student at his first international lecture in Turin, Italy, he surprised the international neuroscience community by showing a new technology, by which one could demonstrate for the first time simultaneously the connectivity of nerve fibers and the identity of their neurotransmitters. This new technology led to numerous discoveries of new functional connections in the brain. Together with two other major technical developments in the field of neuro-anatomy that he introduced in his thesis, he provided a basis for deciphering neural networks at the ultrastructural level. After obtaining his PhD, he received the prestigious Huygens Science Award - KNAW fellowship from the Royal Dutch Academy of Arts & Sciences, which allowed him to move to New York (Rodolfo Llinas) and enter the field of neurophysiology. Here he unraveled the circuitry of the vestibulocerebellum underlying eye movement control and he showed that this part of the brain can create predictions that are required for motor learning. In the meantime, he discovered a new cell organelle, the dendritic lamellar body, that is widely distributed in the brain and implicated in the functional control of electrical synapses, which form next to chemical synapses the main substrate of communication between neurons in the central nervous system. His desire to use transgenics for elucidating brain function inspired him to move, once again, to another field, the field of molecular biology (Frank Grosveld). In this field he discovered new genes, one of which was CYLN2, which turned out to be implicated in Williams Syndrome; today, diagnostic screens for translocations of this gene are used worldwide. In 1998 he was invited to start up the Dept. of Neuroscience that he has been chairing since. Over the past decade the Dept. of Neuroscience has flourished in that it gained about ten times more scientists and staff, and that many of the postdocs and faculty received important awards and fellowships. For example, in the prestigious VENI, VIDI and VICI program of NWO and ZonMw, the main Dutch grant agencies, this Dept. alone received more than 25 fellowships, of which more than 30% were ranked number 1 in the country including the entire medical field and the field of life sciences. His Department was also the first of Erasmus MC and Erasmus University to receive a EURYI Award. More than 75 PhDs successfully defended their thesis and more than seven young scientists already left the Dept. to become chair and/or full professor elsewhere. By participating actively in the lab, De Zeeuw has not only inspired many of his students to become successful, but he himself also received several important personal awards. In 2001, he received the PIONIER Award of NWO and ZonMW, being ranked number 1 of all medical scientists in the Netherlands. In 2006, he received personally from Her Majesty, Queen Beatrix, the so-called Beatrix Award, which was given to the Dutch scientist with the best performance in the field of neuroscience and movement disorders over the 50-year period from 1956 to 2006. In addition, he obtained many prestigious grants from many national and international science agencies, such as NWO, ZonMw, FES, HFSP, EU, and KNAW, and he has been presiding over national and international consortia governing multimillion-Euro programs such as the NeuroBSIK Mouse Phenomics and NeuroBasic Pharma Phenomics programs for valorization of animal models for brain disorders and pharmaceutical products in the Netherlands, and the European SENSOPAC program for Bio-Inspired networks supporting Robotics control. Many of the technologies he developed for academic neuroscience research are nowadays commercially available via Neurasmus BV. In 2007 he became, next to being chairman at Erasmus MC, co-director of the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience to determine its new scientific focus and start up a new group on cerebellar cognition. In 2012 he received an ERC grant and in 2014 he was elected as a member of the Royal Dutch Academy of Arts & Sciences. He published three books on cerebellar function and he has been able to publish well over 300 papers in all disciplines of neuroscience ranging from molecular neurobiology up to computational modeling, accumulating into more than 15.000 citations. This included papers in many major journals including Cell, Neuron, Science, Nature Genetics, Nature Reviews, Nature Neuroscience, Nature Cell Biology, Nature Communications, Cell Reports, eLife, New England Journal, TINS, TICS, Brain, Annals of Neurol, JAMA, EMBO, and PNAS. His research has led to unprecedented insights of how the brain, in particular the cerebellum, may control learning behavior.
