Summer School

September 10-11, 2002

Leading industrial researchers and noted University professors will present tutorial lectures describing the scientific challenges and problems in shrinking "conventional" electronic devices to nano- and sub-nanoscale and in developing new type of electronics using atoms and molecules as building blocks. Spintronics and optoelectronics are becoming essential components of integrated solutions for computing, data storage and telecomuunication and also enter the revolutionary phase in their development. It is common nowadays to see the materials and ideas initially applied in one area of electronics to be almost immediately applied as "new solutions" in another area. The term nanoelectronics is widely applied in conventional microelectronics, e.g. for emerging FETs containing ultra thin dielectric films (1-D nanoscale), and in emerging new technologies, e.g. in design and application of nanotubes (2-D nanoscale) and quantum dots or molecules (3-D nanoscale). In all these cases, quantum effects are becoming essential for the design of modern and future electronics. This creates the need for fundamental understanding of the relation between structure and function of a device on atomic scale level.

Summer School will be held on September 10 & 11 at Physics Department of Moscow Lomonosov State University. Limited number of Summer School (Attendance) Awards (SSAs) are available for the graduate students and young researchers. To apply, please register on the Summmer School Registration Web page. All registered participants of the NGCM2002 Meeting (Summer School and Symposium with paid or waived fees) may attend the Summer School. For those who want to attend the Summer School alone, the participation is free, but is subject to approval of the Summer School selection committee, as the space is limited. To be considered, you have to register on the Summer School Registration page. No presentation is required but the committee may contact your supervisor for confirmation of your good educational and research standing. However, organizers of Nano and Giga Challenges in Microelectronics 2002 (NGCM2002) Meeting will not provide any additional services and financial support (e.g., travel, visa, and/or accomodation assistance) for the participants who only attend the Summer School alone. In order to obtain support from the organizers, you have to register as a regular NGCM2002 Meeting participant (i.e., for both the School and for the Symposium part) and pay the registration fee. To register for the whole NGCM2002 use the Registration Form from the navigation menu on the left. For details, please, check the Summer School Program.

Summer School will be followed by the Symposium on September 12 & 13 in the Palace of Science of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The Palace is located at Prechistinka str. 16 in the historic downtown of Moscow. Refer to the Trasportation Page for directions
