World experts in nanotechnology will gather in Houston next April to attend the Second Conference on Nanoscale Devices & System Integration (NDSI’05) sponsored by IEEE Nanotechnology Council and the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering. The NDSI’05 will be held at the Warwick Hotel on April 4-6, 2005.

UH electrical engineering professors Dmitri Litvinov (program co-chair) and Jack Wolfe (local chair) are heading the conference organization efforts. NDSI has a single session format with all the invited talks forming the body of the conference. Contributed work is showcased at the poster sessions. High quality of the technical program is ensured by the broad participation of the nanotechnology leaders from both the industry and academia.

“This nationally recognized conference is a chance for the University of Houston to step into the spotlight among the world’s leading researchers in nanotechnology,” Litvinov said.

Last year’s conference in Miami, Fla., drew more than 160 participants from 14 countries, and featured nationally recognized university scholars as well as scientists and engineers from major corporations such as NEC, IBM, Toshiba, AMD, Samsung, Seagate and Veeco.

This year’s conference will be a highly interactive meeting, which will serve as an open forum to identify priorities in today’s broad range of nanoscale technologies. Major topics related to device fabrication/synthesis at nanoscale and integration of nanoscale technologies into functional systems will be covered, including

  • Nanoelectronics
  • Nanomagnetics and Spintronics
  • Nanophotonics
  • Nano/bio inspired devices and system
  • Nanorobotics
  • Materials for Nanotechnologies
  • Fabrication for nanoscale
  • Metrology

Work presented at the conference is eligible for consideration in a special issue of IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology. For more information visit the conference web site or contact professor Litvinov at 713-743-4168 or dlitvinov [at] uh [dot] edu.
