7th International Conference on Nanosciences & Nanotechnologies (NN10)

The NN10 is the Internationally established world-class event in Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies (N&N) and it includes keynotes and invited lectures from internationally acknowledged top speakers who will present the state-of-the-art of specific areas and hot topics on N&N that will open up new perspectives in the coming years.
It also includes oral and poster presentations, nanotechnology instrumentation exhibition and surrounding events.

The NN10 Conference will be divided into 3 different Parallel Workshops:

W1: Organic Electronics – Photonics & Nanoelectronics

W2: Nanomaterials, Nanofabrication & Nanoconstruction

W3: Nanomedicine & Nanobiotechnology

**The deadline for abstract submission is 20 April 2010.**

Download the NN10_ABSTRACT_TEMPLATE from the link “Abstract submission” (http://nnconf.physics.auth.gr/abstracts.html) of the NN10 website and follow the instructions provided.

All Abstracts should be sent with the title “NN10 Abstract” by email to nnconf

Pleaze note that during the 39th VCEG and 91st MPEG meeting held in Kyoto, Japan on January 17-22, 2010, the call for proposals (CfP) on video compression technology (H.NGVC/HVC) has been finally issued jointly by ITU-T SG16 Q.6 (VCEG) and ISO/IEC JTC1/SC29/WG11 (MPEG) on January 22, 2010. A Joint Collaborative Team (JCT) on Video Coding Standard Development will also be established accordingly between VCEG and MPEG. According to H265.net, the following schedule has been proposed:

2010/01/22:                 Final Call for Proposals.

2010/03/02:                 Subjective assessment starts.
2010/04/12:                 Registration of documents describing the proposals with contact persons.
2010/04/13:                 Submission of documents [3].
2010/04/15:                 Cross-checking of bitstreams and binary decoders.
2010/04/16:                 Subjective test results available within standardization body.
2010/04/16-23:           Evaluation of proposals at standardization meeting [4].

Anticipated tentative timeline after CfP:

2010/04:                 Test model selection process begins
2010/10:                 Test model selected
2012/07:                 Final standard approval

2010 International Conference on Green Circuits and Systems

21-23 June, 2010, Shanghai, China

Global warming, climate change, and sustainability have profound impacts on our lives. The grand challenge faced by circuits and systems communities is to design green electronic devices and systems that consume less energy, thus lead to the reduction of global CO2 emission. The annual International Conference on Green Circuits and System (ICGCS) is our response to this grand challenge and aims to address issues in climate change and limited suppliers. We hope ICGCS will become a major international forum for researchers and engineers to exchange their latest findings in technologies related to green circuits and systems, a meeting place for scholars, scientists, educators, students, engineers, entrepreneurs, and managers from different disciplinarians to foster collaborations and to solve complex read world problems. The inaugural conference, ICGCS 2010 (http://www.icgcs.org), will be held in June 2010 in Shanghai, the city hosting World Expo 2010. The participants not only have the opportunities to share their new findings in green circuits and systems but also to witness latest development as showcased in World Expo 2010. The main focus of conference is green techniques for circuits and systems. It covers a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, the followings:

· Green Transistors and Devices

· Low Power Techniques for Analog, Mixed-Signal, Digital Circuits

· Sub-threshold & Self-Powered Circuits and Systems

· Bio-inspired/biomimetic Circuits and Systems

· Analog and Digital Signal Processing Techniques

· Circuits and Systems for Communications

· Visual Signal and Image Processing Techniques and Multimedia Systems

· Optimization Techniques

· Adaptive, Reconfigurable, and Power Aware Circuits and Systems

· Energy Harvesting

· Energy and Power Management

· Green Power Systems and Power Electronic Circuits
