Abstract : The Ninth International Conference on Hot Carriers in Semiconductors (HCIS-9) was held July 31 - August 4, 1995 in Chicago, Illinois. It drew an international contingent of 170 scientist from 19 countries including the USA, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, the former Soviet Union, Italy and Austria. The research discussed at this conference advanced the state of the art in many areas, and it is expected to open new horizons in nonlinear transport studies, particularly in the areas of hot-electron and quantum transport. An attempt was made by the program committee to increase the number of presentations related directly to devices for this HCIS conference. Such works produced a rich discussion on a variety of transport effects.
