The ICNMM Program has always been filled with rich content, innovative research, and fantastic presentations and speakers. We need your help to keep this going for ICNMM2017.

Track 1 - Single Phase Gas Flows
Single-phase gas flows in mini, micro, and nanoscale devices and systems are addressed in this track. This includes experimental, numerical and analytical studies.

Track 2 - Single Phase Liquid Flows
Single-phase liquid flows in mini, micro, and nanoscale devices and systems are addressed in this track. This includes experimental, numerical, and analytical studies.

Track 3 – Two-Phase Flows
Two-phase liquid flows in mini, micro, and nanoscale devices and systems are addressed in this topic. All aspects of liquid-to-vapor and vapor-to-liquid phase change flows, in mini, micro, and nanoscale devices and systems are included. In addition, research pertinent to applications in aerosols, segmented flow, inkjet printing, suspensions, and emulsions are also encouraged. Phase change in stagnant pool-like conditions is addressed in the Evaporation, Boiling and Condensation topic.

Track 4 – Evaporation, Boiling and Condensation
Liquid-to-vapor and vapor-to-liquid phase change under stagnant pool conditions without the presence of external non-passive flow, in mini, micro, and nanoscale devices and systems are addressed in this topic.

Track 5 - Electronics Cooling & Heat Pipes
This track addresses all micro, nano, and mini-scale heat exchangers and heat pipes.

Track 6 - Electrokinetic Flows
All electrokinetic transport processes are covered in this track, including electroosmosis, electrophoresis, dielectrophoresis, and any novel electrohydrodynamic transport processes and related devices.

Track 7 - Energy Applications of Micro- and Nano-scale Devices
Fluid, electrochemical and thermal phenomena encountered in fuel cells and other energy devices including flow batteries, electrolyzers, water desalination and heat recovery units, and HVAC systems are addressed in this track. The emphasis is on the transport phenomena in the mini, micro and nanochannels and structures within these devices. Innovative fuel cell and energy system designs based on improved understanding of these transport phenomena are also welcome.

Track 8 - Thin Film, Interfacial Phenomena, and Surface Tension Driven Flows
All transport processes involving thin films, interfacially-driven flow, and wettability control in mini, micro, and nanoscale devices and systems are addressed in this track. Applications include heat management, heat pipes, optofluidics, droplet- and bubble-based microfluidics.

Track 9 - Surface Engineering for Phase Change Heat Transfer
This includes transport phenomena enhancement in mini, micro, and nanoscale devices and systems, based on the use of micro- and nano-particles or micro- and nano-structures.

Track 10 - Biomedical and Lab-on-a-Chip Applications
All biological and biomedical applications of microfluidics and lab on a chip are addressed in this track. This includes novel device design, characterization, system integration, digital microfluidics, and DNA sequencing related topics.

Track 11 – Modeling and Simulation
Analytical modeling and numerical simulation of transport phenomena in mini, micro and nanoscale devices and systems are addressed in this track. This includes molecular dynamics, Lattice Boltzmann methods, continuum methods, and boundary element methods. Algorithmic developments are more suitable for this track while numerical simulation of various physical phenomena should be submitted to other relevant tracks.

This track covers all fundamental and application related papers involving diffusive or convective mixing, mass transfer, or chemical reactions in mini-, micro- and nanoscale devices and systems.

Track 14—Advanced Fabrication and Manufacturing
Papers under this category focus on novel fabrication methods for micro- and nano-scale devices, direct writing of nanomaterials, manufacturing component of wettability engineering and additive manufacturing for micro- and nano-scale fabrication techniques.

Track 15—Transport in Membranes and Nanofluids
Papers are solicited on transport of species (charged and neutral) through meso-, micro-, and nanoporous membranes in energy, water, and health applications. Papers on heat transfer enhancement using nanofluids are also of interest. Both experimental and analytical or numerical analyses of transport process are of interest.

Track 16 - General Papers
Papers under this category cover all transport phenomena relevant to mini, micro, and nanoscale devices and systems, not specifically addressed by other tracks.

Track 17 - Posters
A student poster session based on papers submitted to various sessions will be conducted to give more exposure to student researchers.
