1st International MOS-AK Workshop in San Francisco // 2nd announcement

--- 1st International MOS-AK Workshop
--- Saturday, 13 December 2008; the Westin St Francis Hotel in San Francisco
--- 2nd announcement

1st International MOS-AK Workshop on compact modeling, will be organized
in San Francisco (co-located with the CMC Meeting and IEDM Conference) with
aims to strengthen a network and discussion forum among experts in the
field, create an open platform for information exchange related to
compact/Spice modeling, bring people in the compact modeling field together,
as well as obtain feedback from technology developers, circuit designers,
and CAD tool vendors. The topics cover all important aspects of compact
model development, implementation, deployment and standardization within the
main theme - compact models for mainstream CMOS/SOI circuit simulation. The
specific workshop goal will be to classify the most important directions for
the future development of the compact models and to clearly identify areas
that need further research. This workshop is designed for device process
engineers (CMOS, SOI, BiCMOS, SiGe) who are interested in device modeling;
ICs designers (RF/IF/Analog/Mixed-Signal/SoC) and those starting in that
area as well as device characterization, modeling and parameter extraction
engineers. The content will be beneficial for anyone who needs to learn what
is really behind IC simulation in modern device models. The technical
program of MOS-AK Workshop consists of one day of tutorials given by noted
academic and industry experts, also a panel session is foreseen. The meeting
program will be availabe soon at:
