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
Summer School will be held on September 10 & 11 at
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
No presentation is required but the committee may contact
your supervisor for confirmation of your good educational and research
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
