The end of a computer science "law": Moore's law
The "law" stating that "the quantity of transistors that can fit on an integrated circuit will double every two years" is coming to an end.

Indeed, miniaturisation is reaching its limits. Despite making computer components continually smaller over the last 40 years, there comes a time when we can no longer "shrink the infinitely small".
However, the end of Moore's law is not a barrier for computer science. So what does the future hold?
Come to debate the subject on Thursday 10 March 2011 from 12.45 pm to 2 pm
Conference led by Pierre Boulet, Professor at the University of Lille 1, Assistant Director of the Lille Laboratory of Fundamental Computing and Member of the DART research team at Inria
