Nano and Giga Challenges in Electronics and Photonics
From Atoms to Materials to Devices to System Architecture
Phoenix, Arizona, March 12-16, 2007

Microelectronics technologies have reached a new stage in their
development: the latest miniaturization of electronic devices is 
approaching atomic dimensions, interconnect bottlenecks are limiting 
circuit speeds, new materials are being introduced into microelectronics 
manufacture at an unprecedented rate, and alternative technologies to 
mainstream CMOS are being considered. As a marriage of today's micro-, 
tomorrow's nano- and future molecular electronics this series of 
conferences on Nano and Giga Challenges in Microelectronics (NGCM) is 
being launched. Following the first successful forums in Moscow, 
Russia (NGCM2002) and in Krakow, Poland (NGCM2004) the third meeting 
will be held in Phoenix, Arizona in 2007 hosted by Arizona State 
University in cooperation with Nano & Giga Solutions and other local, 
national and international organizations, Universities, research centers, 
companies and governmental agencies.

GIGAntic challenges for the continuing growth of information technologies 
beyond the fundamental physical limits in scaling electronic devices to 
smaller and smaller sizes has sparked an unprecedented level of 
interdisciplinary and international cooperation between industrial and 
academic researchers, companies - IT market rivals, and countries, 
including former political and military rivals. The next forum in Phoenix,
Arizona, invites academic and industrial researchers to present tutorial, 
expository and original research papers dedicated to the scientific and 
advanced technologicaly problems related to the ultimate merge of micro- 
and nanoelectronics and photonics in specific areas, such as:

    * atomic scale materials design: theory and experiment
    * bio- and molecular electronics and photonics     
    * high frequency electronics  
    * fabrication of nanodevices 
    * magnetic materials and spintronics  
    * materials and processes for integrated and subwave optoelectronics  
    * nanoCMOS: new materials for FETs and other devices  
    * nanoelectronics system architecture  
    * nano optics and lasers  
    * non-silicon materials and devices  
    * quantum effects in devices
