#IEEENAP Conference Awards
“Rising Star in Nanoscience & Nanotechnology”: The Best Presentation Awards
During the IEEE International Conference on “Nanomaterials: Applications and Properties”, the Conference Awards Chair and Technical Program Co-Chairs will identify the best presentations in each oral and poster technical session. The following evaluation criteria will be taken into account:
– Presenter’s breadth of knowledge in his/her field: 5 points;
– Clarity of the presentation and communication skills: 4 points;
– Technical quality of the materials (e.g. slides): 3 points.
The winners will be announced during the Closing Ceremony and will be awarded the “Rising Star in Nanoscience & Nanotechnology” Award Plagues and personalized Certificates.
Eligibility: While all early career (under 35 yo) attendees are eligible, a strong preference will be given to full-time graduate/undergraduate students.
This award is exclusively sponsored by Angstrom Engineering, Inc., – the company that can address all of your thin film needs: from custom-designed and budget-friendly single chamber PVD & CVD systems for academic R&D to multi-chamber, robotic cluster arrays that meet the highest international standards of industrial customers!

“Nanoscience as Art” Competition
The IEEE NAP-2022 Conference Organizers will be hosting its “Nanoscience as Art” image competition! Up to five finalists will be selected. The winner and the finalists will be awarded gift cards at the Conference Closing Ceremony. The top winning image(s) will be highlighted on a front and/or back cover page of the conference program booklet!
This competition is opened to ALL participants and provides an opportunity to showcase the microscopy images and scientific data with artistic appeal. The deadline for submission is July 31, 2022.
How to participate:
(1) Each registered participant of the IEEE NAP-2022 conference is permitted to submit only ONE entry.
(2) Images that are copyrighted (e.g. already published) are not allowed, unless the authors provide the copyrighted materials re-use permission.
(3) The images should showcase experimental or modeling data, with emphasis on their artistic appeal, rather than on the scientific impact.
(4) The entry should consist of a high resolution *.jpg file of at least 300 dpi (600 dpi is preferred). The maximum file size is 15 MB.
(5) All submissions must include:
– a short title;
– the first author’s name and affiliation
– the names and affiliations of the co-authors;
– a short description of the subject of the image and the experimental/computational technique(s) used to obtain the image.
– please include the submitter last name in the file name.
– the submission that does not follow the above guidelines will be disqualified
(6) Email your image to email@example.com with “Nanoscience as Art” in the subject line. All entries should be submitted by July 31, 2022.
Participation disclosure: By participating in this competition, you grant permission to display your submission during current and future IEEE NAP Conferences and online advertising, including the Conference website, Facebook page /LinkedIn pages and/or virtual platform(s).
Eligibility: All authors (presenting or not) of the #IEEE NAP-2022 abstracts are allowed to submit their images for this contest, with one submission per person limit. The award will be given to an individual participant, not to a group of co-authors. The registered (on-site or online) participants will be given a priority. The winners are expected to join us at the Awards Ceremony.
