Abstract : The Journal of Computation Electronics fills the need tor a publication dedicated to physical simulation of devices and processes, with a focus on interdisciplinary work and large scale supercomputing applications. The community typically attending IWCE best represents the audience addressed by the Journal of Computational Electronics, but the composition of this community has grown over the years to include even more discipline areas. The emphasis of the first workshops was on classical device simulation approaches (drift-diffusion and hydrodynamics models) and particle Monte Carlo methods, while other areas have gained increasing importance at following meetings. These areas include quantum transport and quantum device simulation, opto-electronics, process simulation and, more recently, molecular devices, MEMS and transport in biological ion channels. Rapid technological advances in new directions of research and the widespread availability of high performance computers and clusters, have clearly challenged the computational electronics community to address simulation problems of increasing complexity in the nano-technology area. These efforts require even more contributions from other fields of expertise, from heat transfer and micro-fluidics to computational chemistry and computational biology.
