The 2nd Hiroshima International Workshop on

Nanoelectronics for Terra-Bit Information Processing

The 21st century COE program "Nanoelectronics for Terra-Bit Information Processing" aims at fusion of silicon-based nanodevice, circuit and chip-architecture research for the basic construction of integrated systems with high-level recognition and learning functionality. Bringing up independent researches which are capable of advanced, visionary and well reflected research in a broad range of fields is our way to realize them.

Our main goals are:

* Unification of silicon-based system, circuit, device-modeling and device fabrication research

* Solution of the persistent 3-dimensional-integration problems by a wireless integration methodology

* Realization of integrated systems with high-level recognition and learning capabilities by innovative circuits and architectures

Within the scope of the COE program, we hold workshops in the framework of the COE program to demonstrate our progress, as well as to interact with worldwide leading groups for exchanging information as well as possible collaboration.

The first workshop was held on March 17th in 2003, presented overview of the focused fields in the COE. Presentations by outstanding leaders over the world were also given for proving our purpose and searching future interactions.

The 2nd workshop will be held

Date: January 30th, 2004 (9:00-18:00)

Place: Hiroshima University, Advanced Sciences of Matter, Room 401N

The 2nd workshop focuses on the modeling tasks of the COE, aiming at providing opportunity to get an overview of present activities undertaken in the world. Requirement for simulations is incerasing due to the complexity of device characteristics approaching technological limitation. More efforts are also requested to realize accurate SoC simulations. At the workshop possibility to realize tight collaborations among different fields to accelerate the achievement is also discussed.
