These are the proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Noise in Physical Systems and 1/f Fluctuations. The objective of this conference is to address both fundamental and applied issues of fluctuation phenomena in a wide range of systems. Today noise is an important area of research both for scientists concerned with the fundamental issues of fluctuation phenomena as well as engineers who are more focused on the application side of electron devices. More recently, 1/f noise in biological systems has been a subject of much discussion. This is evidenced by the fact that a broad variety of topics are covered in this conference proceedings ranging from noise in silicon devices; compound semi-conductor devices; materials; noise theory; noise modeling; system noise; biological systems; measurement techniques and noise and device reliability.
