When Sep 12, 2016
from 09:00 AM to 05:30 PM
Where Lausanne, EPFL
Attendees Organizing committee: C.Reita (CEA, France), J.Fompeyrine (IBM-Zurich, Switzerland), S.Spiga (CNR, Italy), G.Indiveri (INI, Switzerland), B.Linares Barranco (CISC, Spain), F.Catthoor (IMEC-NL, Netherlands), H.Jaeger (Jacobs University, Germany), D.Thomas (ST, France)

The workshop, organized by the EU H2020 program NeuRAM3, will bring together speakers from different EU and International programs and groups involved in development of neuromorphic electronics in order to present and discuss the recent advances on the subject. Different approaches to implementing synaptic devices, neurons as well as different circuit architecture implementations will be illustrated. The objective is to have a review of the state of the art in implementation of brain-inspired circuits and offer a meeting point between the device and design communities. In order to stimulate the exchange, at the end of the presentations, a Q/A session of 1h will give the possibility to the audience to ask a wider and across the field set of questions to the speakers and express more point of views.
