CFP: BICT 2015 Special Track on Molecular Communication and Networking (MCN)

Nanotechnology has motivated the engineering of communication and networking systems at the nanoscale (e.g., molecular, nanotube, nanowire, and quantum communication systems.) In nano-scale communication and networking systems, large numbers of nano-scale components are expected to communicate and coordinate to achieve application specific goals. Biological systems have mechanisms that allow bio-nanomachines (e.g., protein molecules) to communicate and coordinate to form a system of bio-nanomachines, and thus, it is expected that materials and mechanisms from biological systems can be adapted to the engineering of nano-scale communication and networking systems. Nano-scale communication and networking systems can physiologically monitor and interact with humans and function as body area networks at the nano to micro-scale.

The objective of this special track is to provide a forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange and discuss latest research results on nano-scale communication and networking.

This special track seeks high-quality original and unpublished papers in the following topics:

  • Mathematical theory of nano-scale communication and networking
  • Application of biological techniques to nano-scale communication and networking
  • Design and engineering of nanoscale networking devices (e.g., transmitters, receivers, repeaters, switches, and routers)
  • Signal processing for nano-scale communication and networking
  • Algorithms and protocols for nano-scale communication and networking
  • Architectures for nano-scale communication and networking
  • Topology and network management of nanoscale communication systems
  • Optimization and scheduling for nano-scale communication and networking
  • Software tools for design and analysis of nano-scale communication and networking
  • Novel applications of nano-scale communication and networking
