Workshop on Nano, Molecular, and Quantum Communications

(NanoCom 2009)

(in conjunction with ICCCN 2009, August 2 - 6, 2009, San Francisco, CA, USA)

http://cms.comsoc.org/eprise/main/SiteGen/Nano/Content/Home/NanoCom_09.html

***************************************************************************************************

Nanotechnology is fundamentally changing the field of networking in medicine, computing, and sensing. Interesting applications of nano-networking include devices that enable delivery of targeted drugs directly into cancerous tumors or the use of nano robots to conduct inspection in harsh environments. The small size of micro and nanoscale devices imposes constraints on communication, information processing and propulsion. As the fields of nano and molecular computing come together, it has created a rich avenue of interdisciplinary research that will shape the future of nano and molecular information networks. This workshop aims to bring together researchers from the disciplines of biology, nano engineering, and computer science to address the communication and information processing issues in nano and molecular networks. Hybrid classical-quantum systems are being developed that are beginning to address the above challenges.

This workshop welcomes anyone including researchers, practitioners, and students. The areas of interests include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

** Molecular Communicaions **

Biological implementions of communications, Molecular Motors, Microtubules, Calcium Signalling, etc...

** Quantum Communication Networks **

Hybrid classical quantum communication networks, repeaters, teleportation, entanglement swapping, nanoscale photon detectors, quantum dot networks, networks and quantum robotics, etc...

** Novel Information and Graph Theory Aspects of Nano-Networks **

Network architectures and topologies, Statistical mechanics approach to nano-communications, Routing/addressing issues in nano-networks, Nano-coding, Applications of complex network theory, Self-organization in nano-scale systems, Modeling of Nano/Bio Communication Channels.

** Applications for Nano-Networks **

Wireless nanoscale transmitters and receivers, nano-sensors and actuators, nanorobotics, medical and in-vivo imaging and sensing, lab on a chip, swarm micro and nano-inspection, embedding sensing, etc...


** Modeling, Simulation, Standards and Architectural Aspects of Nano-Networks **

Physical characterization/modeling of nano-scale interconnects and devices, Fault-tolerant and reliability of nano-devices, Self-healing properties of nano-networks, CAD flows for NoCs and MP-SoC platforms, NoC performance and trade-off analysis, Energy efficiency, Bio-inspired aspects.

** Device Physics and Interconnects **

Nano-technologies and devices for on-chip interconnects (CNTs, graphene nano-ribbons, semic., metallic and DNA-templated nanowires), Molecular, optical and wireless interconnects, Interconnects for non-charge-based devices, emerging 3D-interconnect technologies.

** Nano-Robotics **

Communication systems and networking protocols for sub-inch robotic systems, including low-bandwidth coordination schemes for nano-robot teams and range and bearing devices for inter-robot relative positioning.

** Bio-nano Applications **

Bio-Micro/Nanoelectronics, Molecular scale chemical and biosensors, Bio-MEMS technology, Data and power management, Nano-scale and molecular communications and information processing, Information theory analysis of biological communications, Molecular Computation using molecular cells, Chemical computing.
