The International Winter School: Beyond Moore’s Law, 2010 (BML2)

The BML2 will be held in the Suites Hotel in Jeju island, Korea during the period of February 1-5, 2010. Jeju island is located at the southern end of the South Korea and is famous for its beautiful landscape and mild whether.

Recognizing the inevitability of the ultimate limit to the "downsizing" of Si feature size within the next 5 to 10 years (or the end of "Moore's Law"), as well as the ever-increasing need for denser, faster and less dissipative logic, memory and sensors, this school will examine several promising new nanoelectronic technologies that appear to respond to this need. To this end, the sponsoring agencies from Korea, Taiwan and the US have assembled an international group of distinguished lecturers who will provide guidance through formal lectures, as well as via informal workshops in which the attendees can ask questions and interact with those same lecturers. It is hoped that the school will help guide the selected attendees to follow careers in these emerging research areas and to become future leaders in advancing the field of information technology. The school also may help in establishing relations between young scientists from other countries, relations that it is hoped may lead to future international collaboration.

Detailed information regarding the venue and travel to the conference site can be found in the official website of the Winter School.
