The workshop continues the tradition of annual nanoelectronics conferences, started in 2002. We will have talks given by invited experts in the field, as well as a poster session and time allocated for extended discussions.

Scope and Topics

We intend to cover the following topics:
  • electron transport through quantum dots, quantum point contacts, quantum wires, quantum Hall layers, and nanoscale granular arrays
  • electronic properties of carbon nanotubes
  • effects of disorder and interactions and their interplay
  • quantum coherence and dephasing
  • charging and strong correlation effects
  • spintronics
  • nanomechanics
  • quantum macroscopic phenomena
  • quantum information processing
  • nanoscopic superconductivity
  • noise and fluctuations in nanostructures
  • quantum mesoscopic effects
  • transport in nanostructures under time-dependent fields; quantum pumping


The Workshop will be held on June 25 - July 1, 2005, in St Petersburg, a pearl of Northern Europe.

Details to be announced soon.

The downtown with its famous canals, museums, and theaters is available by the public transport. We are certain that you and your family will also enjoy many cultural places that St Petersburg offers. General information about St Petersburg can be found here.
This is the time of so-called "White Nights" in St Petersburg and we are certain that you and your family will also enjoy the many cultural places that St Petersburg offers.


Contributions are in English. No simultaneous translation services will be provided.
