Conference Overview



The 7th Nano & Giga Challenges Symposium and School (NGC2017) will be held in Tomsk, Russia (September 18-22, 2017) hosted by Tomsk State University. Please, mark your calendar for our next meeting and visit NGC2017 web site for information and registration.

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 Summer School and Symposium in Moscow (NGCM2002) the second biennial meeting will be held in Cracow, Poland in 2004 hosted by Jagiellonian University.

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. Central and Eastern European countries, with their large intellectual potential, outstanding educational systems, and strong scientific traditions, are in the position to make a significant contribution toward solving these challenges.

Spawned by the first NGCM meeting in Moscow in 2002, the next forum in Cracow, Poland, 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 in specific areas, such as:

  • atomic scale design: theory and experiment
  • bio- and molecular electronics
  • high frequency electronics
  • fabrication of nanodevices
  • magnetic materials and spintronics
  • materials and processes for integrated and subwave optoelectronics
  • new materials for gates and gate dielectrics in FETs
  • non-silicon materials and devices
  • quantum effects in devices
  • system design technologies
