Call for Papers

June 13-, 2021, All Virtual, Japan

(held prior to VLSI Technology Symposium, Satellite Workshop of VLSI Symposia)
Sponsored by
the Japan Society of Applied Physics and
the IEEE Electron Device Society

Deadline for Abstracts "Extended": April 14, 2021


The workshop will cover various aspects of VLSI-related silicon nanoelectronics. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Sub-10 nm transistors employing conventional and novel architectures including non-classical structures, novel channel and source/drain materials, non-thermal injection mechanisms
  • Device physics of nanodevices including quantum effects, nonequilibrium and ballistic transport
  • Modeling and simulation of nanoscale devices
  • Extreme processing of nanostructures, including nanopatterning
  • Junction and insulator materials and process technology for nanodevices
  • Nanoscale surface, interface, and heterojunction effects in nanodevices
  • Device scaling issues including doping fluctuations and atomic granularity
  • Novel devises and architectures for non-classical computing, including quantum and neuromorphic computing
  • Circuit design issues and novel circuit architectures for nanodevices
  • Novel non-volatile memories, including MRAM, ReRAM, PCM, FeRAM, etc.
  • Optoelectronics using silicon-based nanostructures
  • Devices for heterogeneous integration on silicon, including 2D materials, Ge and III-V, CNT, spin-based devices, MEMS and NEMS, etc.
  • Environmental devices which contribute to low-carbon society (wireless sensors, energy harvestors, steep slope devices, etc.)
