The Workshop on Innovative Nanoscale Devices and Systems (WINDS) is a week long, international, and interactive workshop designed to explore the fundamental properties of nanoscale devices and applications thereof. In particular, WINDS provides a forum for material, device, and characterization as well as experimental and modeling researchers to interact.

This annual workshop is the successor of the original WINDS and the International Symposium on Advanced Nanodevices and Nanotechnology (ISANN), which were held on alternate years. This merging of the two allows for a single international conference to be held each year in Hawaii in late November or early December. WINDS itself began as an outgrowth of the successful Advanced Heterostructures Workshop (AHW), which has a long history dating back to 1986. In 2008, the name changed from AHW to Advanced Heterostructures and Nanostructures Workshop (AHNW), when in 2010 it changed to WINDS in order to recognize the importance of nanotechnology in general, and the applications to systems. ISANN has a long history as well, as it arose in 2009 from the New Phenomena in Mesoscopic Systems (NPMS) and the Surfaces and Interfaces in Mesoscopic Devices (SIMD) conferences, which have been founded in the late 1980s and early 1990s, respectively.

Upcoming conference

WINDS 2021 will take place from November 28 to December 3, 2021 at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, Hawaii.
