Loi de Moore, recherche ...

Pour illustrer ce que j'ai dit sur "D'où vient ce qui est enseigné ..." et sur la Loi de Moore :

The IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Nanoscale Architectures (NANOARCH '08)
Anaheim, CA June 12-13, 2008

Web site: for more information on the symposium.

Moore's law based scaling is rapidly approaching a "brick wall" as we enter the
nanoelectronic regime. Novel silicon and non-silicon nanoelectronic devices are
being developed to explicitly address this problem. Similarly, while defect and
fault-tolerance techniques are designed under the assumption that a system is
composed largely of correctly functioning units, this is no longer true in
emerging nanoelectronics. In addition, nanoelectronics offers massive
parallelism on a scale significantly beyond anything we have seen before, yet
very few commercial massively parallel applications are envisioned. Also, while
current computer aided design tools and methodologies can barely manage billion-
transistor chips, how can trillion-device chips that nanoelectronics promises be

The purpose of the NANOARCH symposium is to be a forum for the presentation and
discussion of novel architectures and design methodologies by considering these
issues in future nanoscale implementations. The symposium seeks to build on the
successes of NANOARCH in 2005, 2006, and 2007. NANOARCH is interested in novel
architectures including massively parallel, biologically inspired as well as
those that are defect and fault tolerant, case studies on defect, fault and
yield models, experimental reliability evaluation, validation frameworks,
computer aided simulation, and design tools and emerging computational models
for nanoelectronics. The symposium’s topics of interest include:

* Architectures for nanoelectronic digital and mixed-signal circuits and
* Computational paradigms and programming models for nanoscale architectures
* Modeling and simulation of nanoelectronic devices, circuits and system
* Simulation of complex systems with nanoscale computing architectures
* Implementing microarchitecture concepts using nanoarchitecture building
* Defect and fault tolerant nanoelectronic device, circuit, and system level
* Manufacture testing of nanoelectronic architectures
* Computer aided design tools and methodologies for nanoelectronic

The Program Committee invites authors to submit papers up to 8 pages in length,
describing original, unpublished recent work. Clearly describe the nature of the
work, explain its significance, highlight novel features, and describe its
current status. Electronic submission through the symposium website is required.

The submission of a paper proposal will be considered evidence that upon
acceptance, the author(s) will present their paper at the symposium.

Final versions of accepted papers will be included in official NANOARCH
symposium proceedings. Also, selected papers will be considered for
publication in special sections of IEEE and ACM Transactions including ACM
Journal of Emerging Technologies in Computing Systems (JETC).
