NANO 2020 opens on Wednesday July 29 at 8:40 am EDT with the Welcome Remarks.
The conference program is structured with the General Sessions in the morning and the paper sessions in the afternoon.
The daily schedule can be found here. Each day starts with a double-header plenary talks, followed by a set of a parallel keynote sessions, with a special event before a break for lunch and posters. After the break, the program continues with three parallel oral presentation sessions organized in technical tracks; each session contains an invited talk followed by 3-4 paper presentations. Main conference starts at 9:00 am daily until 7:15 pm.
The daily Plenary Sessions and Special Events are open for public viewing on Zoom. Attendance at paper presentation sessions and keynotes require registration. Recorded presentations will be available for view on demand for at least a month after via Papercept.
With NANO 2020 we also celebrate the 20th Anniversaries of both the NANO conference series and of the NTC which IEEE approved in 2001, although its first official year of existence was 2002. The 20th Anniversary celebrations will go ahead in four stages:
- Short videos by Past-Presidents and Past NANO Chairs are available for viewing before, during and after the conference,
- Toshio Fukuda, the NTC’s Founding President and current IEEE President will deliver the opening plenary,
- The Young Professionals program will feature a panel discussion with the Past-Presidents and others shortly after the opening ceremony (see a video preview here), and
- There will be a brief formal recognition ceremony as part of the Awards “Banquet” on the 31st.
The program also features a Women in Engineering (WIE) sponsored panel discussion on the 30th. And ends with the NTC and NANO Awards Ceremony on the 31st.
