11. Other Topics
This section is devoted to topics, which are
not directly covered by previous 8 sections,
but are closely related to the field of
electronics and embedded systems. For
example, papers molecular electronics,
organic semiconductors, power distribution in
networks, and environmental systems and
solutions could be submitted. Reports on
trends and methods of teaching and training
in electronics would also be very welcome.
