We are pleased to invite you and colleagues of your consortium or research institute to the final NANO-TEC workshop, “Summary and Recommendations for the Technology-Design Ecosystem”, due to take place in Barcelona on 6 and 7 November 2012. This will be the opportunity to ensure that your views on the Beyond CMOS RTD is discussed in the working groups and incorporated in the project recommendations.
The European Commission ICT theme is funding the Coordination Action project entitled "ECOSYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY and DESIGN for NANOELECTRONICS" (NANO-TEC) to identify the emerging generation of device concepts and technologies for ICT, as well as to build a joint technology-design community in the European research area . The main mechanism to achieve these objectives has been a series of four workshops, the topics of which have ranged from Identifying Technologies and Designs for New Devices to Benchmarking and SWOT analyses of New beyond CMOS device/design concepts. More details of the previous events can be found at https://www.fp7-nanotec.eu/show/events.
The fourth and final workshop:
The event is of great relevance to the ICT Nanoelectronics projects addressed in this email, as it is part of the community building effort of NANO-TEC , which aims at identifying the research priorities of current nanoelectronics and facilitate their consideration in future calls for proposals of the EC and of national funding agencies.
The event will deal with several topics relevant to this purpose, such as (see flyer also):
· Nanoelectronics in EU Horizon 2020
· SRC views on Nanoelectronics (The USA perspective)
· Technology and Design for Devices with Charge as State Variable
· Technology and Design for Devices with No- Charge State Variables
· Technology and Design of New Computing Paradigms
. Ecosystem technology
It will have also two high-level scientific talks on:
· Neuromorphic Computing as a New Computing Paradigm
· Topological Insulators
Furthermore it will incorporate a talk on
· Industrial views
And an exciting panel:
· Panel Discussion on Design-technology integration.
More information on the workshop can be found in the attached flyer or at the following link: https://www.fp7-nanotec.eu/workshop4/program
Attendance to the event is free of charge. For practical reasons, we had to set a deadline for registration, which has now been extended to 26 October 2012.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
