15th NID Workshop
Last Updated April 2, 2019

Madrid, Spain From  2005-01-31  to  2005-02-02

The 15th NID Workshop was organised by the PHANTOMS Foundation in collaboration with the Madrid Science Park (PCM-Spain) and took place at the PCM located at the Autonomous University of Madrid campus, about 15km to the north from downtown Madrid.

Madrid Science Park (PCM) has been created by Autonomous and Complutense universities in Madrid, in order to contribute to the scientific and entrepreneurial development in the area

PCM's main aim is to encourage the growth and development of high level scientific research and to promote the establishment of new science-based bussinesses. Facilities include experimental resources for shared use, which are open to both public and private institutions.

PCM has two main areas of research: Biotechnology & Biomedicine, and Materials Science & nanotechnology

The 15th NID workshop gathered participants in the projects funded within the NID pro-active initiative. Presentations from the EU projects and invited talks from experts outside the NID initiative took place during the workshop plenary  & working group sessions and be focused on the application of a broad range of nano-scale technologies to information processing and on the perspectives for replacing mainstream approaches, such as CMOS, when they will reach the expected physical limits for miniaturisation.
