17th IEEE / ACM International Symposium on Nanoscale Architectures

December 7-9, 2022 (Virtual)


Paper Submission Deadline: Sep 21, 2022 (Extended)

About NANOARCH 2022

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

The symposium will feature regular and special sessions, invited speakers, a best paper award, and provide extended opportunities for interaction among the participants.


Call for Papers

This 17th 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 2022 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

Special Session Call

NANOARCH 2022 invites proposals for special sessions that highlight new and emerging research topics.
- Special sessions will typically run for ~1.5-2 hours.
- Special session paper length: up to 6 pages.
- Invited special session papers will undergo the same review process as the regular and concept papers.

Special session topics of interest (both theoretical and experimental) include, but are not limited to:
- Nano-inspired emerging computing paradigms.
- Novel nano-based computing architectures.
- Emerging nano-devices or architectures for security.
- Nano-inspired machine learning or data analytics systems.
- Other nano-related hot topics for architectures or applications.

Special Session Submission Guidelines
The special session proposals should include:
- Topic title (~10 words)
- Organizers name and affiliation
- Session rationale and outline (~300 words)
- Session paper list with a minimum of 4 papers and no more than 2 per involved research group, including the author(s) affiliation(s), paper title, and abstract (~100-200 words)

Please send your special session proposal to the special sessions co-chairs:
- Priya Panda, priya.panda@yale.edu
- Mehdi B. Tahoori, mehdi.tahoori@kit.
- Jianlei Yang, jianlei@buaa.edu.cn

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

After the 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.

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).

All submitted papers must strictly conform to the ACM submission guidelines. Please be aware that ACM has introduced a new ACM Master Article Templates and Publication Workflow. Authors MUST follow the ACM conference paper submission guidelines, depending on their preferred platform:

Accepted and presented papers will be considered for the NANOARCH 2022 Best Paper Award as well as published in the ACM Digital Library and on IEEE Xplore.

After the conference, authors are invited to submit extended paper versions (containing at least 30% but preferably 50% new material) for potential publication in an IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology NANOARCH 2022 Special issue. All papers will go through the regular IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology review process.
