The European Commission ICT theme has funded a proposal for a Coordination Action project entitled "ECOSYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY and DESIGN for NANOELECTRONICS" (NANO-TEC). The project started on 1st September 2010 and its aims are to identify the emerging generation of device concepts and technologies for ICT, as well as to build a joint technology design community in order to coordinate research efforts in nanoelectronics in the European research area.
Therefore the requirements for future ‘Beyond CMOS’ devices have been identified during the 1st NANO-TEC workshop in January 2011 These devices have been benchmarked during the 2nd workshop in October 2011 and have been undertaken a SWOT analysis during the 3rd workshop (for slides see link below).
The workshop program includes a series of plenary presentations on several selected technologies, discussions in several separated working groups and a panel discussion on design tools for beyond CMOS technologies. The topics are “Nanoelectronics in EU Horizon 2020 and SRC views”, “Technology and Design for devices with charge as state variable”, “Technology and Design for devices with non charge state variables”, “Technology and Design of new computing Paradigms”, “Neuromorphic computing as a new computing paradigm”, “Industrial views”, “Ecosystem Technology”, and the Panel Discussion: "Design Tools for Beyond CMOS technologies" The complete tentative program can be found at the NANO-TEC website www.fp7-NANO-TEC.eu.
As the project aims at an exchange in a joint technology-design community, the attendance is recommended especially to designers and design-related experts who like to bring in their expertise and who like to take new ideas on opportunities by beyond CMOS technologies.
Registration and attendance is free of charge. The deadline for registration to the workshop is October 20, 2012.
The EU FP7 ICT project NANO-TEC seeks to build a community of academic researchers in nanoelectronics, addressing specifically research in Beyond CMOS from the combined technology and design perspectives. A methodology for continued consultation and analysis of research needs and trends will be developed. The main activity will be a workshop series with invited experts, preceded by a methodology contents preparation phase and subsequent analysis and documentation, both by the consortium. Apart of determining what is relevant for Beyond CMOS devices and design, benchmarking and SWOT analyses will be performed.
More details on the project can be found at the project website: www.fp7-NANO-TEC.eu

Researchers from Brown University and the University of Hawaii have found some mineralogical surprises in the Moon's largest impact crater.
Data from the Moon Mineralogy Mapper that flew aboard India's Chandrayaan-1 lunar orbiter shows a diverse mineralogy in the subsurface of the giant South Pole Aitken basin.
The differing mineral signatures could be reflective of the minerals dredged up at the time of the giant impact 4 billion years ago, ...
In power electronics systems bonded connections create the central electrical connections between adjoining surfaces.
The quality of these bonded connections is one of the main factors that determines the reliability and availability of drive systems in electric vehicles, and hence constitutes a major design challenge for German auto manufacturers aiming to electrify their vehicles.

International team of scientists develops new feedback method for optimizing the laser pulse shapes used in the control of chemical reactions
In many ways, traditional chemical synthesis is similar to cooking. To alter the final product, you can change the ingredients or their ratio, change the method of mixing ingredients, or change the temperature or pressure of the environment of the ingredients.
Like an accomplished chef, chemists have become very skilled ...
A genetic defect protects mice from infection with influenza viruses
A new study published in the scientific journal PLOS Pathogens points out that mice lacking a protein called Tmprss2 are no longer affected by certain flu viruses.
The discovery was made by researchers from the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) in Braunschweig in collaboration with colleagues from Göttingen and ...
The Light: Global study gets underway with online user survey
Light has a fundamental impact on our sense of well-being and performance. In cooperation with Zumtobel, a supplier of lighting solutions, Fraunhofer IAO has launched a global user survey of lighting quality in offices. The objective is to identify the best lighting conditions for a variety of spaces and lighting ...
