We actively support scientific conferences in our field and maintain the following portal sites:
The International Workshop on Computational Nanotechnology (IWCN) covers all aspects of advanced simulation of electronic transport and optoelectronic processes in semiconductors and semiconductor devices based on both inorganic and organic materials. Topics of the conference include electronic transport, thermal transport, spin transport, optoelectronic processes and coupled phenomena, first principles calculations in the context of transport studies, and novel architectures for nanodevices.
The next IWCN conference will take place in May 2019, Evanston, Illinois, USA.
The International Conference on Simulation of Semiconductor Processes and Devices (SISPAD) provides an open forum for the presentation of the latest results and trends in process and device simulation. The conference is the leading forum for Technology Computer-Aided Design (TCAD) and is held alternatingly in the United States, Japan, and Europe in September.
The last SISPAD conference took place between 24-26 September 2018 in Austin, Texas and the next one is slated for Udine, Italy.
The Wigner Initiative brings a community of researchers together who utilize the Wigner formalism for its research. In particular, this initiative is used to promote and organize special events such as conferences, workshops, and publications to the Wigner scientific community. The Wigner Initiative increases synergy effects and fosters knowledge transfer within the community. Looking at the development of research in Wigner functions, critics claim that, although various groups pick up the work, they abandon it again, never delivering a compelling research result, in turn being essential to the justification of the approach in general. A clear presentation of the evolution in the field is needed.
The next International Wigner Workshop will be a two-day satellite event of the International Workshop on Computational Nanotechnology (IWCN) 2019 and will be held on May 19-20, 2019 in the Hilton Orrington Evanston, IL, USA.
The Workshop on Innovative Nanoscale Devices and Systems (WINDS) is a week long, international, and interactive workshop designed to explore the fundamental properties of nanoscale devices and applications thereof. In particular, WINDS provides a forum for material, device, and characterization as well as experimental and modeling researchers to interact. This annual workshop is the successor of the original WINDS and the International Symposium on Advanced Nanodevices and Nanotechnology (ISANN), which were held on alternate years. This merging of the two allows for a single international conference to be held each year in Hawaii in late November or early December.
The next WINDS conference will take place between 25-30 November 2018 at the Westin Hapuna Beach Resort (former Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel), located on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii.
