International Workshop on Computational Electronics (IWCE) covers all aspects of advanced
simulation of electronic transport and optoelectronic processes in semiconductors and
semiconductor devices based on both inorganic and organic materials. The scientific program
consists of invited lectures, contributed talks, and poster presentations. The workshop is held
in a single-session format and is intended to be an international forum for discussions on the
current trends and future directions in computational electronics. The emphasis of the
contributions is on the interdisciplinary aspects of computational electronics that touch physics,
engineering, applied mathematics, as well as chemistry and biology. Active participation of
graduate students, including student presentations, is strongly encouraged.
