Neuromorphic Cognitive Systems with Nanotechnology
(Organized by IBM)

Computing workloads are rapidly shifting toward more cognitive applications to make the best use of massive streams of unstructured digital data efficiently. At the same time, technology scaling by conventional means is becoming increasingly challenging. Rather than signifying an end to exponential improvements in computing energy efficiency or speed, this confluence presents a great opportunity to reinvent information science and technology using neuromorphic approaches.

This special session will explore how those working on emerging nanoscale technologies can play critical roles in developing alternative computing frameworks and architectures inspired by the human brain.
Session chair: Yasunao Katayama, Ph.D (IBM Research - Tokyo)
Co-Chair: Pritish Narayanan (IBM Research - Almaden)

Nano-manufacturing Process and System
(Organized by Tokyo Electron Limited)

Over 50 years after its advent, the LSI industry still continues to grow. Driving forces of the growth are miniaturization represented by Moore’s Law and production equipment technologies that achieve the mass production of LSI devices. By deploying these assets, the industry is expected to manufacture high-density, high-performance nano-scale devices at a reasonable cost and in large quantity.

This session will be organized by Tokyo Electron Limited, one of the world’s largest semiconductor equipment manufacturers, and will focus on manufacturing technology for nano devices and systems, including Si technology, MEMS, energy, bio technology and other nano devices. The session will consist of invited and contributor’s papers.
The Committee will encourage all contributors to submit papers (Call for Papers).
Session chair: Takenao Nemoto, Ph.D (Tokyo Electron Limited)
Co-Chair: Noriaki Toyoda, Associate Professor (University of Hyogo)

Challenges of NEMS/MEMS

Current challenges in MEMS/NEMS concern a wide variety of applications in devices, communications, logical computing, energy harvesting, biotechnology and medicine. To realize the next innovations with MEMS/NEMS, we will select and focus on the researches of advanced challenges and new trials with MEMS/NEMS.

The session will invite relatively young researchers who are actively working on above challenges in MEMS/NEMS applying to the fields of advanced computing, energy harvesting, biological interfaces and motion sensing etc..
Session chair: Masaya Toda, Associate Professor (Tohoku University)
Co-Chair: Haixia (Alice) Zhang, Professor (Peking University) & Philip Feng, Professor (Case Western Reserve University)

COI TOHOKU Symposium on Unobtrusive Sensing and Daily Health Screening
(Organized by Center of Innovation, Tohoku University)

Daily health screening performed by unobtrusive sensing technologies will create a health-conscious society to realize healthy and fulfilling life, and strengthen family ties. COI TOHOKU Site has been pursuing one of Center of Innovation (COI) Programs commissioned by Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), aiming to realize day-to-day health monitoring in an unobtrusive manner, as well as a centralized, cloud-based, secure management system for storing collected data and other important information in a cooperative framework among core site members and satellite partners.

The session will consist of invited and contributors’ papers on unobtrusive sensing systems with MEMS and nanotechnologies including wearable devices, printed electronics, communication devices for body area network, and biocompatible materials. We expect this session will elicit new applications of MEMS and nanotechnologies for unobtrusive sensing and daily health screening.
Session chair: Prof. Matsuhiko Nishizawa
Co-Chair: Prof. Shuji Tanaka & Prof. Hitoshi Shiku
