II INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR MEM-Q
10/28/2018 - 10/31/2018
Special section "Stochastic multistable systems" within the framework of the II International Seminar on Nanoelectronic Memristors for Quantum and Neuromorphic Computing (Second MEM-Q International Workshop "From ReRAM and Memristors to new Computing Paradigms")
In accordance with the order of the rector of UNN No. 620-OP dated 12.10.2018 in Rethymno (Greece), a special section "Stochastic multistable systems" was organized and held on October 28-31, 2018 within the framework of the II International seminar on nanoelectronic memristive devices for quantum and neuromorphic computing (2ndMEM-Q Workshop).
The topic of the Second International Seminar on Nanoelectronic Memrisis Devices for Quantum and Neuromorphic Computing was related to the global trend of moving from memory devices based on resistive switching to the use of memristors and the memristive effect in new paradigms of information and computing systems (From ReRAM and Memristors to new Computing Paradigms).
The seminar was opened by a plenary lecture by Ilya Valov, representing a European consortium based on the German JARA (Jülich-Aachen Research Alliance), about microscopic phenomena underlying the functionality of various types of memristive devices.
The participants of the event were particularly impressed by the plenary talk from the successful Israeli startup Weebit-Nano, which attracted significant investments for the commercialization of a new generation of memristor-based storage devices, as well as a series of invited talks from world-renowned groups from Italy, Switzerland, Greece and Russia working on the creation of neuromorphic and bioelectronic systems based on inorganic (metal oxide) and organic memristive devices.
An important event of the event was a special section on stochastic multistable systems, organized within the framework of a grant from the Government of the Russian Federation allocated for the creation of the StoLab laboratory at Lobachevsky University under the leadership of the leading Italian scientist Bernardo Spagnolo, whose plenary report opened the section.
A large delegation from UNN and the Kurchatov Institute showed significant progress in the development and creation of new generations of electronic devices and neuromorphic artificial intelligence technologies based on memristive materials at the seminar.
The participants of the seminar highly appreciated the level of organization of the seminar and the contribution of the rapidly growing Russian memristive community to this promissing scientific direction, and also discussed the possibility of holding the next event in 2019 in Italy.
