The Workshop on Innovative Nanoscale Devices and Systems (WINDS) 2024 will be held on the Island of Hawaii at the Fairmont Orchid from December 1 to 6, 2024. WINDS is an international and interactive workshop designed to explore the fundamental properties of nanoscale heterostructures and potential device applications. The workshop is composed of morning and evening sessions, with afternoons free for ad hoc meetings to encourage extended interaction and discussion among participants.

WINDS provides a forum for material, device, and characterization as well as experimental and modeling researchers to interact. This breadth of expertise reflects the technical challenges in developing nanoscale devices and material systems, since every device is a heterostructure of one form or another and the properties of the interfaces often determine the functionality and properties of the nanoscale system.

The workshop is the successor of the original WINDS and the International Symposium on Advanced Nanodevices and Nanotechnology (ISANN), which were held on alternate years. WINDS itself began as an outgrowth of the successful Advanced Heterostructures Workshop, which has a long history dating from the 1980s.
