ANNOUNCEMENT and CALL FOR PAPERS
8-th Workshop on Frontiers in Electronics (WOFE-2013)
December 17 - 20, San Juan, Puerto Rico



The aim of the workshop is to bring together leading scientists and engineers who work at the frontiers of electronic devices and circuits, yet represent traditionally separated fields and have different professional backgrounds. Rapid pace of electronic technology evolution and current economic climate compel 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.

The topics of interest include (but not limited to)
Microelectronics: short term (2-4 years) and long term (10 -20 years) R&D
Wide band gap technology for high power and UV photonics
Terahertz and infrared electronics and photonics
Silicon, Germanium and III-Vs on Insulator and advanced CMOS
Sharp switch devices
Thin film transistors, giant area and printed electronics
Innovative memory devices
Spin electronics
NEMS and integrated systems
Bioelectronics and biomagnetism
Low-dimensional semiconductor materials and devices: 0D (quantum dots), 1D (nanowires) and 2D (CNT, graphene and beyond)
