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
