Leading Scientific Institutions Launch the First International Conference on Nano-Networks

Apr 24, 2006, 01:00 ET from STMicroelectronics

    LAUSANNE, Switzerland, April 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- A consortium
 of leading public/private institutions and professional organizations,
 including STMicroelectronics, Intel, EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Federale
 Lausanne), Create-Net, ICST, the EU IST-FET program, IEEE-CAS, IEEE-CEDA,
 and IEEE-TCCA, have announced the first edition of a new scientific
 conference on nano-scale networks, called Nano-Net 2006, to be held in
 Lausanne, Switzerland, on September 14-16, 2006.
     Nano-Net is the first scientific event dedicated to both nanotechnology
 and networking and will provide a multi-disciplinary forum for the
 discussion of new techniques in modeling, design, simulation, and
 fabrication of network and communication systems at the nano-scale.
 Intended to stimulate debate on both nanotechnologies and
 network/communication theory, the conference will address various topics,
 including new communication paradigms (both wired and wireless) and the
 related challenges in network and system interconnect design.
     "Nano-networks are growing in importance for the design of
 next-generation integrated circuits," said Maria Teresa Gatti, Director of
 Research and Innovation, Advanced System Technology, STMicroelectronics.
     "Nano-Net responds to the need to study the technical issues related to
 the intersection of nanotechnologies with networking and systems," added
 Chris Dwyer, Professor, Duke University, USA.
     Contributed research papers are due by May 15th, 2006. Detailed
 information on the conference scope, and the corresponding Call for Papers,
