The workshop will focus on Carbon Nanotube (CNT) technology as possible candidate for future VLSI interconnects. The major aspects of CNT interconnects will be covered, from the issues and solutions to growth/deposition local and global lines to the novel measurement and simulation methodologies necessary to characterize and understand CNT performances. Aim of the workshop is to disseminate the latest results arising from the H2020 EU-funded project CONNECT as well as to host invited talks from academia and industry to deepen the understanding of future Interconnect scenarios.
