Welcome to the website - 2015 edition

   New deadline for abstract submission : November 27th

Perspectives in Nano Information Processing
an international conference and workshop
Møller Center
Cambridge, UK, December 14-16 2015

The conference is jointly organized by the FP7 FET EC projects MULTI (multivalued and parallel computing at the molecular scale) and TOLOP (low power information processing in solid state devices). Several topics related to CMOS technology as well as the implementation of complex logic operations in molecular media will be covered :
  • emerging steep switch devices & CMOS technologies
  • issues related to the energy-dissipation of CMOS devices and circuits
  • optical addressing of molecular machines through state-of-the-art nonlinear ultrafast optical techniques
  • electrical and optical addressing of atomic and molecular states in the solid-state
  • complex DNA-based biomolecular architectures for complex logic operations
  • perspectives in nano and bio processes

  • In addition to the speakers and the partners of the two projects, attendees include members of the scientific boards of the projects and graduate students, postdocs, younger researchers working in the field of molecular logic and solid-state devices.
    Given the multidisciplinarity of the subjects covered, stimulating discussions will be encouraged by a flexible time table.
