2009 Workshop on Compact Modeling (WCM'09)

The 2009 Workshop on Compact Modeling (WCM 2009) will be held in the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston (Texas, USA) on May 3-7 2009, as part of the Nanotech 2009 Conference.

The Workshop on Compact Modeling (WCM) is the largest event devoted to the Compact Modeling field. WCM has become a very important open forum for discussion among experts in this field as well as feedback from technology developers, circuit designers, and EDA tool vendors.

The suggested topics include all important aspects of compact model development and application: intrinsic models, extrinsic/interconnec models, atom/quantum models, statistical models, and model extraction and interface.

A limited number of papers will be selected for oral presentations and the remaining accepted papers will be planned for poster presentations with oral briefing. The deadline for abstract submission is November 12 2008.

The Chairman of WCM is Professor Xing Zhou (from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore). He was the person who created WCM and has made this workshop very successful.

I think that it is a must for Compact Modeling researchers to attend WCM. Many of the last advances in this field are presented there.
