[mos-ak] MOS-AK/GSA Workshop in Baltimore: 1st announcement

* Dec.9, 2009
* collocated with
o IEDM Conference (Dec.6-9 <
o CMC Meeting (Dec.10-11<
* Johns Hopkins University at Homewood Campus in the Computational
Sciences and Engineering
o Building (CSEB) Room CSEB 17
o free on-line registration
o General visitor information for JHU
o Map of the campus
* about 50+ (similar to
* 6-8 invited noted speakers presenting academia and industry
o plus a poster session
* panel discussion at the end of the workshop
o Compact models QA validation: Still a challenge?
* HiTech forum to discuss the frontiers of the compact/spice
* MOS-AK/GSA Meetings are organized with aims to strengthen a
network and discussion forum among experts in the field, enhance 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 - frontiers of the compact modeling for nm-scale 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/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 the IC simulation in modern device models.

* Topics (open list):
o electronic abstracts submission
* Advanced MOST compact models for the bulk/SOI and compound
* Alternative models for analog/RF and HV applications
* High level behavioral languages (Verilog/VHDL) for compact
models standardization
* CAD tools for model implementation
* Parameter extraction, model QA and lib generation and validation
* GNU/open source software support

* I. Angelov: "Fundamentals of FET Device Modelling for GaN, SiC,
GaAs and CMOS"
* A.G. Andreou: TBD
* G. Coram: "Verilog-A standardization and model validation"
* B. Iniguez: "COMON: EU compact modeling project"
