The physics of nanoscale materials and the devices based on them has now become an important area for research and development in both academic and industry laboratories. The iNOW 2008 workshop will engage participants in considerations of state-of-the-art nanoscale semiconductor processing and synthesis, the new physics of tailoring material's optical and electrical properties, new advances in characterization techniques, and new devices with novel functionalities. Tutorial-style lectures on the key areas of nano-photonics by eminent scientists from Japan, Germany, China, Korea, Russia, Sweden, and the United States comprise the core of the workshop. Three rump sessions will expose and discuss the various perspectives of the experienced researchers. Four poster sessions will present the work of international students and postdoctoral fellows. Two of the poster sessions will be held jointly with the annual Symposium on Optical Communications-an important event attended by many leaders in the Japanese optoelectronics industry as well as national academia-allowing the work of young scientists to reach an influential audience. The student poster presentations, rump sessions, specially arranged tours of company labs, and excursions that include a full day on Mt. Fuji (highlighting the Yamanashi Winery) as well as a day trip to Kamakura insure participants ample time for interaction and in-depth discussions. The iNOW 2008 workshop promises opportunities for intense interaction-inspiring presentations, exciting discussions, and invigorating debates. We hope and expect that your experiences here will stimulate future collaborations and spark future breakthroughs.

Japan's dominance of the market for manufactured consumer goods is a reflection of its leadership in high tech areas like telecommunications and information technology. Many of the advances in these technologies arise from the innovative research done by the Japanese photonics industry. Special tours of the NTT Photonics Laboratories and the Fujitsu research and development center, both located in Atsugi, have been arranged for the iNOW 2008 participants. The NTT Photonics Laboratories, part of the NTT Science and Core Technology Lab Group, supports these continuing innovations through research on the next generation of photonic device technologies. They are developing the latest photonics devices by combining three core technologies: optical semiconductor research, optical glass materials, and ultra-high-speed electronic device technology. This R&D advances the goals of the network of NTT companies, and the companies then spread these innovations around the globe through technology transfers and commercialization. Fujitsu Laboratories conducts path-breaking R&D on a broad range of technologies that is helping make ubiquitous networking a reality. From innovative IT services to computers, networks, and other platforms, to cutting-edge electronic devices, they are creating the technologies of the future, and making them work together in bold new ways. As the central pillar of the Fujitsu Group's research and development efforts, they make essential contributions to the IT solutions offered by Fujitsu to customers while also achieving landmark advances in scientific research.
