Intellectual Merit: The Nanoelectronic Devices for Defense & Security (NANO-DDS) Conference is a bi-annual science and technology event which has been organized for the purpose of reviewing the evolving research and development (R&D) activities in the arena of nanoelectronic devices that have direct relevance to critical capability needs for national defense & security in the future. The charter of this special conference is to unify and focus the very broad array of nanoelectronic and supporting nanotechnology activities that are currently engaged in reaching the long expected applications payoffs in core defense and security related areas such as sensing, data processing, computation and communications.

Broader Impacts: The inherent multidisciplinary nature of the nanoscale science & technology (Nano-S&T) field and the potential for impacting high priority objectives motivate the unique organization of this 2011 conference. The conference will support participation of many new faculty and graduate students.
