Welcome to Frontiers in Nanocomputing, a seminar series that focuses on systems issues for nanoelectronics. Our topic was Fundamental Limits of Digital Computation. The questions to each speaker were: What are the fundamental limits? How close are we to those limits? How relevant are they to real technologies? How close will CMOS eventually get? And finally: What are the most promising alternatives to CMOS? The topic of reversible computing was one that came up in each of the four talks. Video streams and presentation slides are available for each seminar.
We thank the presenters for a set of excellent talks and for being so responsive to our questions and to the issues that other speakers raised. Our hope is that this series of talks stimulates discussions that shed some real light on these important issues.
