Scaling of semiconductor devices has continued unabated for the past three decades, and will likely continue for the near future. However, at the end of this decade (ca. 2011), the nature of the silicon device is such that many alternative approaches are likely to be viable contenders.

Already, new materials (SOI, SiGe, strained Si) are used in current production, high-k dielectrics, fully metallic gates and more non-(Si, SiO2) are expected in the coming generations. In addition, low dimension structures such as Fin-FETS are being considered. See the presentations:

Yet, the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors does not identify logic devices beyond CMOS, which presents a unique opportunity for the research community to influence the future of technology. Consequently, this symposium will address the role of several prospective technologies in creating new device options in the post-2011 era (sub-10 nm equivalent technologies).
