Call for Papers :

This session considers new ideas, technologies, and potential applications across a wide range of disciplines critical to electronic, optical, and magnetic materials technologies. The experimental, technological, and theoretical aspects of electronic, optical, and magnetic materials, including synthesis and fabrication of materials are welcome. Next generation of devices andsystemstechnology largely hinges on low cost and novel functional materials that enable3D manufacturing and integration. 3D printing is currently one of the most emerging technologies that offer a new possibility of printing in a sub-nano atomic scale to meso-scale 3D fabrication. However, such scale printings require manipulative characteristics of materials. New materials technology would also allow information carrying host roles for any 3D fabricated devices and systems to communicateeach other through the Internet of Things (IoT). Our aim for introducing this important area in this conference is to visualize leading ideas for exchanging and to make networking place with the most updated information onelectronic, optical, and magnetic materials adoptable to 3D technology among scientists, researchers, and engineers covering vast number of disciplines. Organic electronics provide environmentally friendly devices and material technologies that are built on flexible and conformal substrates. The flexible electronics is a key enabler for a number of platform technologies such printed transistors, smart electronic textiles, electronic papers and displays, embedded power sources and integrated sensing devices. A number of low-cost and large-area electronic applications also include smart cards, smart price, and inventory tags such as RFIDs. The session aims to add the following areas to promote interdisciplinary exchange in understanding engineering systems: nanowires, carbon nanotubes, magnetic nanotubes, organic electronics, MEMS, bioMEMS, nanostructures, nanoelectronics, high selectivity and sensitivity biological and chemical sensors, detection of harmful chemical and biological agents, microsensors for radioactivity, low power consumption physical and chemical sensors, security electronics, reliability and failure aspects, biomedical applications, biomimetics, fast DNA sequencing, smart drug delivery, polymer electronics, nanooptics, analytical techniques at nanoscale, nanoassembly behavior, nanointegration, noise aspects and information technology at nanoscale, multifunctional nanosystems, and nano/bio interface. This session will also focus on advanced methods for the testing, reliability, packaging, and metrology of micro-and nano-scale materials and devices.
