Part of ITNG 2016


April 11-13, 2016, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

(Proceedings to be published by the conference publishing services-CPS)


A special track on Emerging Technologies and Innovative Research in Computing Systems will be organized within the ITNG2016. This is the sixth annual meeting on quality research oriented papers focusing on the latest innovative research, and development in quantum information science, and nano-scale innovative technologies. The objective of this special track is to provide the opportunity for research discussion, and collaborations between scientists, faculties, graduate students, and researchers in the latest emerging technologies and innovative research in computing systems.


The Special Track will feature the following topics:


1.         Quantum Information Theory

2.         Quantum Computing

3.         Quantum Communications

4.         Quantum Cryptography

5.         Developing and implementing quantum information

6.         Topological quantum computing

7.         Modeling and simulation of quantum computing

8.         Novel development of nano-optic in computing systems

9.         Nano-instrumentation in computing systems

10.        Nanosystem integration in computing systems

11.        Nanoelectronics in computing systems

12.        Nanophotonics in computing systems

13.        Nanobiotechnolgy in computing systems

14.        Nanotechnology safety, policy, procedure, and awareness

15.        Quantum Dots in Quantum Information Science

16.        Photonics structures and quantum dots in computing systems


Paper Submission:

Papers must represent high quality and previously unpublished work, not currently under review by another conference, workshop, or journal. Your submission should include the author names, complete mailing addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and the email addresses of the authors. Interested authors should email a 6-page summary of their original and unpublished work including 5 keywords in the IEEE format through https://www.softconf.com/h/itng2016/. You can also email your paper to track chair with the subject line set as “ITNG 2016/(STETIRCS)”.


Evaluation Process:

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness. Per ITNG policy, except for invited papers, all papers will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by the Conference Publishing Services-CPS.


Best Student Paper:

The Best Student Paper will be awarded at the conference. To be eligible, the student must be the sole author of the paper, or the first author and primary contributor. (The winner of the award will present the paper in a plenary session at the conference). A cover letter to the General Chair/Track Chair must identify the paper as a candidate for this competition at the time of submission.
