Nano and Giga Challenges in Microelectronics
Symposium and Summer School
Research and Development Opportunities
Cracow, September 13-17, 2004
Special issue on "Nano and Giga Challenges in Microelectronics"
This call for papers is an endeavor of the editorial teams of the Microelectronic Engineering journal and the Organizers of the 2nd Symposium and Summer School on Nano & Giga Challenges in Microelectronics (Krakow, Poland, September 13-17, 2004).
The aim of Microelectronic Engineering is to bring together in one publication the results of international work in the rapidly expanding field of integrated microelectronic. Microelectronic Engineering is an archival, peer-reviewed journal. It publishes full research papers, short communications, and review articles. The scope of this Journal includes materials, methods and designs for microfabrication, processing and inspection for microelectronic and nanoelectronic elements.
The organizers of Nano & Giga Forums intend to provide a creative environment for researchers, managers, students and everyone else involved in the exciting and expanding world of nanoscience and nanotechnology and its “electronic department” in particular. The essential enabler of the future information society -- electronics -- is at the threshold of a new phase, requiring radical innovations in materials and processing. The future generations of technology will only be possible when significant progress in physics, chemistry, material sciences, and other related disciplines, is achieved. Following the first successful Summer School and Symposium in Moscow (NGCM2002), the second biennial meeting is held in Cracow, Poland in 2004 hosted by Jagiellonian University and FQS Poland (Fujitsu group).
The Special issue of the Microelectronic Engineering journal will address the most advanced state of
the art research presented at the NGCM2004 meeting in Cracow. The original experimental and
computational research papers are invited and equally welcome, which cover scientific and advanced
technological problems related to the ultimate merge of micro- nano- and molecular electronics in
specific areas, such as:
Notes for the intended authors
All papers will be peer reviewed. A guide for authors, sample copies and other relevant information for submitting papers are available in the Papers Submission section of the Journal as well as on the NGCM2004 meeting web site http://asdn.net/ngcm2004/publication.shtml.
Participants of the NGCM2004 meeting are encouraged to bring three copies of their manuscripts to the conference in Krakow. All manuscripts should be submitted electronically by uploading the paper as described at http://asdn.net/ngcm2004/publication.shtml or by sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Full paper due: 15 October 2004.
Notification of acceptance: 1 December 2004.
Final version of paper due: 1 February 2005.
