This paper presents a summary of the second workshop on Silicon Nanoelectronics and Beyond held at the National Science Foundation in Washington DC in December 2004. The objective was to set research directions to vigorously pursue both extending the CMOS technology to its limits and to develop Beyond-CMOS technologies to sustain the historical exponential improvement in performance/cost with time. Workshop themes were: (1) Post CMOS information processing technologies, (2) Novel materials and assembly methods for extending charge-based technology to its ultimate limits, (3) Multi-scale/multi-phenomena modeling and simulation, (4) Novel nano-architectures, and (5) Nano environmental safety and health. © Springer 2005.
