Sizing up nanotechnology: The economic impact of nanoelectronics

(Nanowerk News) On December 3, 2010, the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, in cooperation with the Semiconductor Industry Association, is hosting a 1-day event "Sizing Up Nanotechnology: The Economic Impact of Nanoelectronics".
Join the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas in Austin as experts from across the country consider:
  • What radical innovations might remove the circuit size constraints facing today's semiconductor industry?
  • How will nanoelectronics drive productivity, output and export growth in the U.S.?
  • What conditions are needed for the industry to maximize its potential?
  • Nanoelectronics has the potential to replace the semiconductor and have a major impact on the U.S. economy by continuing Moore's law of doubling data storage and processing capacity every 18 months. This conference will explore the impact information technology has had on productivity and output growth in the U.S., the potential for nanotechnology to continue these positive impacts, and the necessary conditions for the industry to fulfill its potential as a driver of economic growth.
