Abstract : The Advanced Workshop on Frontiers in Electronics' (WOFE) was held at the Hotel Melia Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, Spain, January 6 - 11, 1997. The goal of this Workshop was to bring together leading scientists and engineers who are at the frontiers of electronic device and circuit research and development but who approach this technology from entirely different directions. Low powered digital electronics, microwave powered circuits, and optoelectronics have become the foundation of today's electronics technology and seem to represent the directions for future endeavors, yet they emerged from traditionally separated fields and are still largely pursued by specialists trained in different areas. The rapid pace of electronic technology evolution is propelling a merger of the traditional fields. Evidence is not hard to find around us. Wireless communication is just one example. It is time to encourage active cross-fertilization of the different "species" on this electronic planet and to call for leadership in bringing together the resources and expertise in these fields. This advanced workshop was a special forum to gather some of the creative minds and leading experts from academia, industry, and government, and to review the most recent and exciting breakthroughs in the various fields, the underlying physical mechanisms that link these advancements and to exchange views on future trends and directions, the market pulls and the necessary policy and infrastructure changes.
