Advances in nano-scale devices have motivated the engineering of nano-scale communication and networking. Nano-scale communication includes molecular, nanotube, nanowire, and quantum communication. In nano-scale communication and networking, a nano-scale device is expected to perform application specific functionality (e.g. control of nano-scale medical, environmental, or manufacturing devices) and to coordinate with large numbers of other dynamic and distributed nano-scale devices. Biological systems have demonstrated the capability of communications in these conditions, and thus, it is expected that biological mechanisms and techniques can be adapted to engineer nano-scale communication and networking systems. Recent research in nano-scale communication is working to establish the feasibility and characteristics of these nano-scale communication and networking systems.

The objective of the special track on Nano-scale Communication and Networking is to provide a forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange and discuss latest design and analysis for nano-scale communication and networking systems. Namely, we are interested in establishing the feasibility and characteristics of nano-scale communication and networking through the application, design, modelling, theoretical analysis, and simulation of nano-scale communication and networking.

This special track seeks high-quality, original and unpublished papers addressing topics relevant to the issues raised above, including:

Nano-scale communication techniques of interest include but are not limited to:
