Model - a mental image of reality
Welcome to the Workshop on Compact Modeling Website

Call for Participation

Invited presentations Workshop on Compact Modeling is initiated as an open forum for model developers as well as interaction with the technology/design communities.  It has been mainly in the form of invited presentations for the specific topics in the compact-modeling area.  Since 2008, the format has been changed mainly with contributed oral presentations.  After the 11th WCM in 2012, it becomes a biennial event under NSTI Nanotech conference.  The forteenth Workshop on Compact Modeling (WCM2018) will be held in association with the Nanotech2018 in Anaheim, CA, USA on May 15, 2018.  The topics cover all important aspects of compact modeling for circuit simulation, and invitations are extended to experts in the related topic areas.  Please visit the following website for updates:
Contributed papers in the scope of "compact models for circuit simulation" are solicited.  All contributed papers will go through Nanotech/WCM review.  WCM is organized as a special session within the Nanotech2018.

For WCM-related enquiries, please contact Dr. Xing Zhou (  For general Nanotech/Microtech-related enquiries, please contact Ms. Sarah Wenning (

WCM2018, being the forteenth one, will prove to be interesting and useful for people in a broad spectrum of fields: compact model developers, process engineers, device physicists, and circuit designers, in a variety of disciplines: universities, research institutions, chip manufacturers, wafer fabs, fabless companies, consulting firms, parameter-extraction tool and circuit-simulator vendors.

All are invited to participate in this open forum!
