This week Tyndall is hosting the 18th IEEE-NANO, International Conference on Nanotechnology, in Cork from 23rd to 26th July.  For the first time being held in Ireland, IEEE-NANO is the flagship IEEE Nanotechnology conference.  This year's IEEE NANO 2018 focus is Nano-Enabled Smart Things: new materials, devices and systems that can benefit humanity through applications in communications, energy, healthcare, food and environment.

IEEE NANO 2018 brings together academics, researchers, students and industry leaders of the nanoscience and nanotechnology ecosystem, providing a platform to discuss:

  • Developing new nanomaterials or manipulating matter at nanometre length scale
  • Studying the fundamental physical, chemical or biological properties of these nanomaterials and nanostructures
  • Manipulating and optimizing nanomaterials and nanostructures to create  new nanosensors, nanoactuators and nanoelectronic/nanophotonic devices.

Monday kicked off IEEE NANO 2018, with tutorials and a tour of Tyndall.  Tutorials described the use of simulations for nanoelectrochemical sensor device design and architecture definition electronic circuit interfaces for electrochemical sensors. 

Dr. Alan O’Riordan, Smart-Agri  discussed Nanoelectrochemistry: Simulations, device fabrication and applications.
Dr. Daniel O’Hare, of MCCI, discussed Electronic Circuit Interfaces for Electrochemical Sensors.

Tuesday’s Opening Ceremony included keynotes by Professor Clivia M. Sotomayor Torres, Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and Professor Gary Rubloff, University of Maryland.

Parallel sessions and poster sessions on ten tracks will run over three days:

Tracks:

  • Nanosensors & Nanoactuators
  • Nanoenergy for Smart Things
  • Materials, Devices & Architecture for Nanoelectronics
  • Multi-scale Simulation
  • Nanofabrication & Assembly
  • Nano-Acoustics
  • Nanophononics
  • Nanomagnetics & Spintronics
  • Nanosafety
  • Nanoscale & Biological Communication

On Wednesday 25th, keynotes were provided by Professor John A. Rogers, Northwestern University and Professor Rong Chen, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, followed by an invited presentation by Dr. Odeta Limaj, European Research Council. Parallel sessions and poster session on six tracks will complete the day.

On Thursday 26th a special invited industry session on “Opportunities and Challenges for Nano-Enabled Smart Things” was held, as well as a series of short Public Engagement Events in Cork city, “An Evening of Nano”.
