Call for papers: Nanomanufacturing Systems, Processes and Simulation

Call for papers: Nanomanufacturing Systems, Processes and Simulation

A special issue of International Journal of Nanomanufacturing

Research and technology developments at the atomic, molecular or macromolecular levels have the potential to provide a fundamental understanding of phenomena and materials at the nanoscale and to create and use structures, devices and systems that have novel properties and functions because of their small and/or intermediate size. Nanomanufacturing encompasses processes aimed at building nanoscale structures, devices and systems either in one, two or three dimensions.

Critical issues of nanomanufacturing play an important and increasing role in helping to increase the speed of the development cycle time, improve reliability, reduce process variability, and increase overall product and process quality. The goal of this special issue of is to publish the current state-of-the-art in nanomanufacturing systems, processes and simulation, including selected papers from the 6th International Symposium on Nanomanufacturing to be held in Athens, Greece, November 12th – 14th 2008

Subject coverage includes, but is not limited to, topics that address:
  • Nanomaterial production and integration
  • Metrology, sensing and characterization
  • Manipulation and actuation
  • Instrumentation, tooling, equipment
  • Modelling, simulation and control
  • Design, optimization and control
  • NEMS and MEMS nanomanufacturing
  • Socio-economic aspects of nanomanufacturing
  • Nanomanufacturing in industry
Research that explores the development of new statistical designs to meet novel challenges in emerging technologies for nanomanufacturing is particularly welcome.

Important Dates
Deadline for submission of manuscripts: 30 November 2008
Communication of peer reviews to authors: 30 December 2008
Deadline for revised manuscripts: 31 May 2009
