NaNoNetworking Summit 2012

Nanotechnology is enabling the development of devices in a scale ranging from one to a few hundred nanometers, which are able to perform simple tasks such as computing, data storing, sensing and actuation. By means of communication, these nano-devices will be able to achieve more complex tasks and cover larger areas. The resulting nanonetworks will boost the range of applications of nanotechnology in different fields, ranging from biomedical applications to nanoelectronics and quantum computing. However, classical communication paradigms need to be revised before being used in the nanoscale. In addition, new communication technologies, such as molecular communications or bacteria transport, need to be modeled and analyzed from the information and communication theory perspective.

Following the success of the NaNoNetworking Days in 2009, 2010, and the Third NaNoNetworking Summit 2011, the NaNoNetworking Center in Catalunya (N3Cat) is pleased to announce the NaNoNetworking Summit 2012, to be held at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona. The objective of this event is to understand and learn from each other about the latest research activities, create a research roadmap for this emerging field altogether, and foster possible collaborations among its participants. The N3Summit aims to become the main discussion forum for researchers of the different scientific areas related to nanoscale communication networks. With this objectives in mind, the N3Summit 2012 will bring together international researchers to exchange ideas and results related to the theoretical and practical aspects of nanodevices, communications among nanodevices, nano-computing and applications of nanonetworks. Please follow to the Technical Program for more details on this international event.
