The conference will cover all aspects of advanced simulation of electronic transport in semiconductors and semiconductor devices, particularly those which use large computational resources. The scientific program, organized in a single-session format, will consist of invited lectures, contributed talks, and poster presentations.
The workshop is intended to be an international forum for the discussion on the current trends and the future directions of computational electronics. The emphasis of the contributions will be on interdisciplinary aspects of Computational Electronics, encompassing Applied Physics, Engineering and Applied Mathematics. Active participation of graduate students, including student presentations, is strongly encouraged.
Previous IWCE meetings were held at the Beckman Institute of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (May 1992), the University of Leeds, UK (August 1993), Portland, Oregon (May 1994), and Tempe, Arizona (October/November 1995).

PLEASE NOTE: No submissions by FAX or e-mail will be accepted!
The abstract (including title, authors, and institutions) should be typed on a single standard A4 sheet of white paper with 1 inch margins. The corresponding author should be identified and full address, FAX number, and e-mail address should be provided.
Notification of acceptance will be sent by 31 March '97.
The conference proceedings will appear as a special issue of VLSI design. Papers will be due at the beginning of the workshop with regular refereeing taking place during the meeting. Final manuscripts will be due approximately one month after the workshop.
The workshop will be held in the Center for Continuing Education (CCE) on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. Notre Dame is located next to the city of South Bend in Northern Indiana, about 100 miles East of Chicago. The CCE is just a few minutes by taxi from the South Bend airport.
A block of rooms has been reserved in the in the Morris Inn on the Notre Dame campus, directly across the street from the conference center. Economical air- conditioned rooms will also be available in a close-by and newly-constructed dormitory.
The registration fee will be $225 before 30 April '97. ($275 after 30 April '97)
This fee includes: Welcome reception, all meals and refreshments, conference banquet, abstract booklet, and conference proceedings.
Special student registration is available at the above rate which includes regular registration plus dormitory accommodation for the three nights of May 27-29.
Student participation is strongly encouraged and approximately 15 stipends of $400 each will be given for travel support.
With the help of the IEEE Electron Devices Society, a special airfare discount has been arranged with United Airlines for this meeting.
