NANOENERGY LETTERS n. 6 - August 1, 2013

Dear colleague,
I am glad to announce the sixth issue of NANOENERGY LETTERS.

This a special issue devoted to the presentation of short papers from NANOENERGY2013, the first international conference devoted to nanoenergies held in Perugia, Italy (July 10-13 2013).
Energy at small scales is indeed a cross-disciplinary field that covers both theoretical and experimental aspects of fundamental and applied sciences ranging from nanotechnology to statistical physics, from computer science to biomedicine.
This conference, supported by the E.C. FET program through the “Toward zero power” initiative, provided opportunities to exchange new ideas face to face, to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration. Topics of the conference included: energy transformation processes and dissipation at micro and nanoscale, non equilibrium thermodynamics of small systems, magnetic and nanomechanical Logic principles and devices, bioenergetics and bio-inspired low energy computation, energy harvesting for powering micro and nano devices, ICT-Energy: switch architectures and zero power computing, energy aware algorithms and software strategies for low power computing, Low power distributed sensor networks, Landauer limit: theory and experiments, Stochastic Resonance, noise and fluctuations phenomena in small systems. I hope you enjoy the contributions that we present in this issue.
