Tyndall to host 18th IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology


​Tyndall will host the 18th IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology in Cork from 23rd to 26th July, the first time this high profile event will be held in Ireland. IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) is the world’s largest professional association for the advancement of technology.

This year’s conference, IEEE NANO 2018, will be a unique opportunity to showcase the knowledge and experience of local and visiting experts in this sector. On Thursday 26th a special invited industry session on “Opportunities and Challenges for Nano-Enabled Smart Things” will be held, as well as a series of short Public Engagement Events in Cork city, “An Evening of Nano”.

The thematic focus for IEEE NANO 2018 is Nano-Enabled Smart Things: new materials, devices and systems that can benefit humanity through applications in communications, energy, healthcare, food and environment. The conference themes will encompass experimental contributions as well as modeling and simulation. We have welcomed contributions from both academic and industry-based researchers.

The conference scope spans both nanoscience and nanotechnology, including:
• 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.

Conference highlights will include a diverse range of Keynote Speakers, including:
Professor John A. Rogers, Northwestern University
Professor Clivia M. Sotomayor Torres, Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
Professor Malini Olivo, A*STAR Singapore
Professor Rong Chen, Huazhong University of Science and Technology
Professor Debdeep Jena, Cornell University
Professor Gary Rubloff, University of Maryland.

The conference will take place in the historic grounds of University College Cork (UCC), set on 42 acres of wooded ground, only a 10 minute walk from Cork City Centre. 

With over 400,000 members, IEEE is dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. IEEE NANO has been the flagship IEEE Nanotechnology conference since 2001, supported by the IEEE Nanotechnology Council (the largest council within IEEE).
