* The Systems Benefits of Lower Operating Voltage
* Steep Tunneling Transistors
* Steep Negative-Capacitance Gate Transistors
* Nano-Mechanical Switching
* Magnetic Switching, Magneto-Resistive Drive Current
* 3D-Integration to Save Energy
* Low-Energy Short-Distance Optical Communication
* Electrochemical Switching
* Cryogenic and Superconducting Computing
* New Analog Machines to Solve Digital Problems

The Workshop will be October 19 – 20. For more information, go to
