Nanoelectronics represent a strategic technology considering the wide range of possible applications. These include telecommunications, automotive, multimedia, consumer goods and medical systems
Many of the potential molecular electronic applications still require substantial work in order to be transformed into marketable technology. A concerted effort must therefore be made at the European level to both understand and commercialise atomic scale technology in order to maintain a competitive advantage for Europe and keep Europe at the forefront of the next nanoelectronics revolution, a revolution beyond nanotechnology.
In order for the field of molecular electronic to continue growing exponentially worldwide and therefore lead to new commercial applications and to change the micro and nanoelectronics paradigm, it is necessary to educate new researchers who can work across traditional disciplines. High-level dissemination activities such as SMS2006 will help to establish a critical mass of R&D at a European level and to stimulate development of an interdisciplinary community of researchers.
The Spanish Molecular Electronics Symposium (SMS2006) will be organised by the following Institutions: PHANTOMS Foundation, Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC), CSIC and UPV-EHU, CIDETEC and in collaboration with the NANOTRON and Pico-Inside projects. It will take place at the DIPC located at the Basque Country University campus, in San Sebastian (Spain).
