The course aims to give the attendants a general knowledge about state-of-the-art emerging nanoelectronics including technology, logic and memory device architectures and benchmarking for circuit and system applications. Particularly the new trends in Beyond CMOS and More-Than-Moore domains are detailed with concrete examples and discussions.
The course intends to addresses a wide range of R&D staff, PhD candidates and/or engineers from institutes or universities, marketing and business development managers of companies active or interested in emerging nano-electronics.
Dr Adrian M. Ionescu is an Associate Professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland. His research interests focus on micro- and nano-electronic devices aimed at Integrated Circuit design. Dr. Ionescu has published more than 100 articles in international journals and conferences. He served in the ISQED and IEDM conference technical committees and was the Technical Program Committee Chair of ESSDERC in 2006. He is director of the Electronics Laboratory 2 (LEG-2) of EPFL and was appointed as national academic representative of Switzerland for the European Nanoelectronics Initiative Advisory Council (ENIAC).
Dr Thomas Skotnicki is the STMicroelectronics Fellow and Director of Advanced Devices at STMicroelectronics Crolles, France, that he joined in 1999. Before, from 1985 till 1999, he was with France Telecom R&D (CNET-Centre National d’Etudes des Telecommunications). He holds about 60 patents on new devices, circuits and technologies, has presented over 50 Invited Papers and Short Course Lectures, co-edited one book, (co-) authored about 300 scientific papers (review based), and several book chapters in the field of CMOS devices and circuits. He has been teaching at EPFL (Lausanne) and INPG (Grenoble) and has supervised and led to successful defence more than 20 PhD theses. He has been serving in numerous Conference Program and Executive Committees (IEDM, VLSI, ESSDERC, ECS, SNW, IWJT), Academia Advisory Boards, Governmental Expert Commissions, R&D Program Steering Committees, and ITRS. He is an IEEE Fellow and SEE Senior Member.
