Announcement and Call for Participation

About NanoFab

The largest gathering in the field worldwide, NanoFab is the premier technical forum for presenting the latest research and development in nanofabrication technologies, devices and applications.


Nanotechnology promises an unprecedented era of innovation across multiple disciplines and diverse applications. Its pursuits and activities are proliferating with different approaches, from top-down to bottom-up to converging techniques, and with varying degree of maturity from concept to commercialization. The key to realize nanotechnology's potential is still the ability to assemble and manufacture nano-scale devices, structures with dimensions smaller than 100nm. This conference will focus on all areas of nanofabrication that will accelerate nanotechnology's progress: innovative research to state-of-the-art development to cost-effective manufacturability in nanofabrication processes and technologies for current and novel devices and applications, including enabling and differentiating aspects in materials, metrology, characterization, and reliability.

Joint Meetings

The Nanotech 2006 Meeting, NanoFab & CCE Conferences, and the WCM workshop will be held at the Hynes Convention Center, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A. Centrally located in Boston's popular Back Bay, this location is just steps from some of the city's most popular attractions. The convention center is connected to the conference headquarters Boston Sheraton Hotel, the Prudential Center and the upscale Copley Place Mall, offering more than 200 shops and restaurants, and is also just one block from famed Newbury Street, known for its designer boutiques.

The conference will start Sunday late afternoon with registration and reception, and adjourn Thursday afternoon. Technical sessions run Monday through Thursday. Exhibits are open Monday through Tuesday.

The conference Technical Proceedings, consisting of articles submitted by authors of both oral and poster presentations will, be distributed to participants at registration.

In addition to the Technical Program, an exciting series of Social Events are being prepared to allow attendees ample opportunity to interact socially and enjoy the sights and sounds of Boston.

Journal Submissions

Journal of Experimental Nanoscience

Journal of Experimental Nanoscience

Selected Nanotech Proceedings papers will be reviewed and invited into a Special Issue of the Journal of Experimental Nanoscience.

For consideration into this Special Issue of the Journal of Experimental Nanoscience, please select the "Submit to Journal of Experimental Nanoscience" button during the on-line submission procedure. Please note that you may only select a single journal during the submission process.

Topics and Application Areas


Nanofabrication techniques involving growth, patterning and assembly can cover:

  • lithography by e-beam, laser milling, STM, ion beam, imprint, emboss, EUV, or process enhancement
  • etching pushing the nano-limits for novel material and structure with unconventional shape and profile or high-aspect ratio
  • material growth and deposition by MBE, MOCVD, ALD, layer-by-layer, spin-on, 3D nanostructure engineering, selective growth, or colloidal-assembly
  • non-conventional patterning approaches, including self-assembly, direct laser writing, interference lithography, two-photon absorption, and combination of top-down and bottom-up techniques
  • new materials, nano-particles, organic and biofunctional structures, novel processes, and challenges
  • electrochemical synthesis, dynamics at solid-liquid interfaces, and superhydrophobic surfaces
  • design, simulation, systems, and architectures that enhance nanofabrication
  • metrology and characterization, electrochemical and time resolved metrology, AFM, and nano-analysis for homo- and hetero-interfaces
  • standards, reliability, cost-effectiveness and industrial implementation of nanofabrication technologies.

Nano-devices can encompass optical, electrical, chemical, fluidic, acoustic, magnetic, piezoelectric, and other technologies. Emphasis will be on development of novel design and fabrication for nanotechnology applications:

  • optical, electrical and Terahertz sensor devices and network
  • laser: novel types, materials, and application
  • waveguide: fiber and integrated
  • MOEMS, MEMS, and NEMS for nano-applications
  • resonators and switches
  • nano-structure, carbon nanotube, nano-wire, nano-bridges, nano-dots
  • molecular and nano-electronics, organic and chalcogenide devices
  • genomics and proteomics, and nano-scaffold for bio-applications
  • micro- and nano-fluidic devices, liquid devices for electronics and photonics, catalytic activity, chemical reactor, lab-on-a-chip application, fuel cells, and crystal growth chamber
  • mechanical, acoustic, magnetic, and piezoelectric devices
  • devices based on plasmonics and surface enhanced phenomena in Raman scattering, nonlinear spectroscopy, infrared absorption, and photochemistry
  • hybrid, multifunctional, and other technologies.

All papers on nano-applications in photonic, microelectronic, telecommunication, chemical, biotech, medical, pharmaceutical, homeland security, environmental, agricultural, consumer, and transportation are relevant. The primary focus is on innovative fabrication that significantly advances current application and enables novel nano-application.

Nanofabrication papers that have significant overlap with other Nanotechnology Conferences at NSTI Nanotech may be presented in joint sessions to enhance the synergism of the Nanotechnology Conferences.
