Rapid pace of electronic technology evolution compels a merger of such technical areas as low-power digital electronics, microwave power circuits, optoelectronics, etc., which collectively have become the foundation of today's electronic technology. The Workshop aims at encouraging active cross-fertilization of the different "species" in this electronic planet. The WOFE will gather experts from academia, industry, and government agencies to review the recent exciting breakthroughs and their underlying physical mechanisms. The program committee invites discussions of controversial issues, provocative views, and visionary outlooks. Debates on the future trends and directions and the market pulls as well as the necessary policy and infrastructure changes are encouraged. Attempts will be made by the committee to solicit alternative views and rebuttals.
