WOFE'09

The 2009 Workshop on Frontiers in Electronics (WOFE) will be held in a very beautiful place: Rincon of the Seas Grand Caribbean Hotel, Rincón (Puerto Rico) from December 13 to 16 2009. WOFE is being held every two years.

It is a very special workshop devoted to bring together researchers who work at the frontiers of electronic devices and circuits. Therefore, it facilitates the interaction between researchers from different areas such as microwave power circuits, optoelectronics, emerging nanodevices, bioelectronics, nanotubes, teraherz and infrared electronics and photonics, TFTs and giant area electronics, nanoMEMs, or wide band gap technology, provided their targets are at the frontiers of present electronics.

Papers on modelling have also been usually accepted for WOFE, if they address advanced devices, or brand new modeling techniques.

We have to remark that the programme committee encourages to submit papers presenting discussions of controversial issues, rebuttals of theories, provocative or alternative views, and visionary outlooks.

The Chair of WOFE is Professor Michael S Shur, from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), Troy, NY (USA). Very prestigeous researchers will be invited for plenary talks.The deadline for abstract submission is October 01 2009.

No doubt it should be very pleasant to spend several days in Puerto Rico enjoying nice weather in December. Every day the sessions end early in the afternoon, so there is plenty of time to enjoy the beach. As the WOFE schedule say, the afternoon is the time for "break and networking", what means beach, or networking on the beach. Furthermore, there is a wonderful social programme, which includes one very interesting excursion.I recommend researchers to go to WOFE. It is a very adequate event for networking in a very beautiful and relaxing place.
