There are currently a number of ongoing collaborations among professors of the departments of materials science and engineering (DMS&E) and electrical engineering and computer science (EECS) at NU, and the department of physical electronics within the school of electrical engineering and the recently founded DMS&E at TAU. It is these working relationships that generated this workshop. Professor Noam Eliaz, founding chair of the DMS&E at TAU, spent his sabbatical year, , working with Professors David Dunand and David Seidman as an Eshbach Scholar of MEAS. One of the several concrete results of the meetings involving Professors Eliaz, Seidman, Michael Bedzyk (chair of the DMS&E at NU) and Julio Ottino (dean of the MEAS) was a document concerning 05 05 joint collaborations between the two DMS&E at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, which included an inaugural workshop at TAU. After a meeting among Professors Yossi Rosenwaks (at that time the chair of the department of physical electronics at TAU), Alan Sahakian (chair of the department of EECS at NU), Bedzyk, Seidman and Ottino, the goal broadened to include interactions with the department of physical electronics at TAU. This inaugural workshop is on the theme of semiconductors, electronic materials, thin films and photonic materials, which represent highly interdisciplinary fields of research. The many related applications are timely with potentially great impact on the high-technology, nanotechnology, energy, biomedical, information, communication and defense industries. Internationally acclaimed experimentalists, computational materials scientists, and theoreticians from both universities were invited, which will certainly lead to lively scientific discussions, and which in turn will lead to further inter-university interactions. The first two days of the workshop will consist of scientific presentations and intensive discussions, which are anticipated to initiate new collaborations and joint submissions of grant applications to funding agencies. The third day will consist of tutorials for and poster presentations by graduate and postdoctoral students from all over Israel. The fourth day will be one day of sightseeing in Jerusalem, led by a professional tour guide, to have the NU attendees become acquainted with some of the customs and culture of Israel. We thank Tel Aviv University (the vice president, the institute's conferences committee, the dean of engineering, and the dean of exact sciences), Northwestern University (the provost's office, the chair of MEAS, and the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC)), Israel Ministry of Defense, Pazy Foundation, Israel Ministry of Science, Technology and Space, and 06 06 the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities for their generous financial support, which is enabling us to offer an unforgettable event for all attendees. We welcome you to this important scientific event, which is being held near the beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean Sea. Yours respectfully, S Professors Noam Eliaz (TAU) and David Seidman (NU), Co-Chairs 07 07 לשכת הנשיא OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT January 21, 2015 Dear Participants, I am pleased to see the milestone Tel Aviv University-Northwestern University cooperation agreement, signed last year, bear fruit with the launch of the joint materials science workshop. I have no doubt that this exciting gathering will be followed by many more that further our two institutions' shared goal of research excellence in the service of humanity. Tel Aviv University's blossoming relationship with Northwestern has opened diverse opportunities for collaborative projects in areas ranging from business and law to medicine, engineering and the exact sciences. No less important are new and unique opportunities for partnerships with the Chicago-area Jewish and business communities and with alumni of both universities to support this dynamic activity. I would like to stress that we are proud of our association with Northwestern University. We are proud to be welcoming our distinguished Northwestern colleagues to our beautiful campus once again. And we are especially proud of our shared, ongoing contribution to Israeli-American academic links and to our two countries' close friendship. I wish you a rewarding workshop.

In global terms, this view underlines the vital need for an interchange of knowledge and expertise amongst academicians in general and scientists in particular. In line with this thinking, Tel Aviv University places a strong emphasis on forging and strengthening international bonds which provide greater opportunity for synergistic research projects that hitherto would not have been pursued. In this context, the cooperation between Northwestern University and Tel Aviv University provides an excellent example of two sister institutions that have joined forces to promote better research, science and engineering programs. The mutual research workshops organized in this context have the potential to strengthen the academic and research collaborations among scientists in the two universities, and enable the development of novel research directions. The subjects of the current workshop semiconductors, electronic materials, thin films and photonic materials are at the forefront of research in materials science and engineering and physical electronics. I am confident that this workshop will foster the already established cooperation among researchers from the two universities in these important fields, and serve as a catalyst in the further development of research programs at both universities along these avenues.

More than 200 Israeli craftspeople and artists set up stalls to exhibit and sell their unique and often humorous creations. It s an outdoor fair with street performers, clowns and musicians providing free entertainment for visitors. The market is open on those two days from 10am until sundown. Neve Tzedek - South of the Yemenite Quarter, Neve Tzedek was the first neighborhood built in the new city of Tel Aviv, back in At the beginning of the 20th century Neve Tzedek was the home of many artists and writers, such as Brenner and Agnon (a Nobel Prize winning author). Here are many gorgeous little shops in the area, especially on Shabazi Street. You can find designer shops, children's clothes, art, pottery and many more boutique shops, which would make even the most reserved shopping fan ecstatic. You can get a bite to eat in the many cafes and restaurants in the area. Hatachana The New Station Compound - Jaffa Port - Tel Aviv the White City - Bauhaus Architecture -in 2003, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) proclaimed Tel Aviv s White City a World Cultural Heritage site. - Culture Square - Tel Aviv is Israel s culture city. Most of the museums, orchestras, theaters, art galleries, dance venues and music halls come with an entry fee, however. To get a taste of the city s arts scene, head over to Culture Square at the end of Rothschild Boulevard. Here you ll find the historic Mann Auditorium, home to the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the recently renovated Habima National Theater and the Helena Rubinstein Pavilion for Contemporary Art - all facing a gorgeously designed public courtyard with a small flower garden, water fountain and dozens of families frolicking among them. Rabin Square - The main plaza just outside City Hall is known as Rabin Square, named after Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. He was assassinated on vii vii November 4 th, 1995, after a peace rally in this square. A monument to Rabin stands at the spot where he was killed. Israeli sculptor Yael Ben-Artzi used 16 basalt stones from the Golan Heights and sunk them into the earth to symbolize Rabin s deep connection to the land.
