Authors are encouraged to submit a full-length paper to the IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology or the IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices. Download the Call for Papers (PDF format) Further Information The 2012 Silicon Nanoelectronics Workshop is a satellite workshop of the 2012 VLSI Symposia sponsored by the IEEE Electron Device Society. It will be held on June 10-11, 2012 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu, Hawaii USA. This will be the seventeenth workshop in the annual series. Original papers on nanometer-scale devices and technologies which utilize silicon or which are based on silicon substrates are welcome. Prospective authors are requested to submit an abstract in PDF format, consisting of one page of text and one page of figures. It must include the paper title, the authors’ names and affiliation(s), and the full contact information (mailing address, phone and FAX numbers, e-mail address) for the corresponding author. Accepted abstracts will be reproduced in the workshop proceedings exactly as received. Some of the accepted papers will be presented in Poster Sessions. The deadline for receipt of abstracts is 5PM (Pacific Time) April 1, 2012. Authors will be notified by April 30, 2012.Registration forms and hotel reservation forms will be provided in the Advanced Program of the 2012 VLSI Technology Symposium (http://www.vlsisymposium.org/index.html).
