NBR 2007 is focusing on robotic systems working at the very small scales, i.e., millimeter/molecule size, biologically inspired micro/nano-systems, as well as biological nano-robots. The workshop intends to present the most recent achievements on nano-manufactured robots and bio-robots, their utilization, and their control.
Developing nanoscale-manufactured robots presents fabrication and control challenges. The evolution of mechatronics system and robotic system requires advanced functions for control. Special methods and technologies have been developed to design, analyze, build, controls, and apply micro/nano-robotic systems for biotechnology, medical, information technology, materials, etc. A particular application of nano-robots would be in carrying out projects in hostile environments, utilizing local materials and local energy. Ultra-miniature robotic systems and nano-mechanical devices will be the biomolecular electro-mechanical hardware of future manufacturing and biomedical industry.
Nowadays, there are tremendous attempts to develop new bio-molecular machines, components that can be assembled in nano-devices. Bio-robotics entities are able to manipulate the nano-world components, convey information from the nano/nano to the nano/macro world and navigate at the nano-environment level. Additionally, they are able to self replicate, leading to the bio-robot factory. Protein-based nano-motors and nano-robots, as well as biomolecular components interfaces.
We solicit research and industrial contributions covering nano-manufactured robots and bio-robots. The NBR 2007 Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services and posted on IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received papers will be acknowledged via the EDAS system.
Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11" (two columns IEEE format), not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page.
Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations
The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will be published in the conference’s CD collection, together with the regular papers. Please send your presentations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals can be for half or full day tutorials. Please send your proposals to email@example.com
The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines. Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as well as short biographies.
