eFutures: beyond Moore's Law









The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG


Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor David Cumming, Professor Steve Furber CBE FREng FRS and Professor Douglas Paul

Event details

Moore’s Law of scaling has driven microelectronics to revolutionise computer and communication technologies. In the 21st Century, microelectronics will deliver integration of new and non-electronic functionality for optical, chemical and biological systems. In this scientific meeting international leaders will be brought together to discuss the diverse opportunities and methodologies that will define this exciting field in the next 20 years.
