The SINANO-NANOSIL Workshop will take place in Athens on September 18th, 2008, during the ESSDERC-ESSCIRC Conference.

This Workshop, continuation of the former SINANO Workshop, is a very valuable discussion forum in the area of nanoelectronics devices.

The aim of this Workshop is to present the status and trends of CMOS and beyond-CMOS nanodevices for terascale ICs and to establish a discussion forum in the field of nanoelectronics devices.

The SINANO-NANOSIL Workshop is supported by the SINANO Institute, which is a new European entity created by the main laboratories of the European academic community working in nanoelectronics, and by the European Network of Excellence NANOSIL which targets Silicon-based Nanodevices and is funded by the European Commission for the 7th Framework Programme, from 2008 to 2011. The former SINANO Workshop was funded by the prebvious Network of Excellence, called SINANO.

The program of the SINANO-NANOSIL Workshop consists of several presentations given by a number of representatives of NANOSIL partners:

9:00 Limitations in future gate stack materials

10:00 Coffee break

10:30 Advanced Memory devices using multi-gate and 3D structures
B. DeSalvo

11:00 Tunnel FET or Ferroelectric FET to achieve a sub-60mV/decade small swing switch
A. Ionescu

11:30 Electron Transport in Graphene Quantum Dots and Quantum Point Contacts

12:00 Lunch

13:30 Variability in Nanoscale CMOS and Nanowires
A. Asenov
University of Glasgow

14:00 Simulation of gate leakage currents in UTB MOSFETs and Nanowires
