Join the Workshop

#IntersectWorkshop

This workshop aims at connecting academic research, R&D labs, and industry on the theme of synaptic electronics and neuromorphic computing, with a specific focus on the role of materials on the efficiency and design of next-generation devices.

The workshop will bring together experimental and theoretical experts in the field of electrical engineering, physics, chemistry, and materials science to discuss the main open problems and solutions for the development of volatile and non-volatile memories and memristors. Particular attention will be dedicated to materials-to-device modelling and to innovative interoperable automatic workflows for industry-driven applications, in close connection with the experimental side.

The workshop, organized within the activity of the EU project INTERSECT, is free and open to scientific oral and poster contributions.

The INTERSECT workshop will take place in a hybrid format. Attendance in person in Barcelona, Spain, is welcome. More information about the venue of the conference can be found here. If you are not able to attend in person, an online version of the workshop will be also available.

COVID-19 restrictions/regulations

Up to date the situation in Barcelona and in Spain is completely under control and most activities are regularly open. In case of a deterioration of the pandemic situation (presently not foreseen), the workshop will be shifted to a full online form.

Anyway, to enter in Spain and be allowed to attend an indoor public event you MUST have a valid  EU Digital COVID Certificate or a negative PCR test done in the previous 48 hours.

For further info please visit https://ec.europa.eu/info/live-work-travel-eu/coronavirus-response/safe-covid-19-vaccines-europeans/eu-digital-covid-certificate_en

Since rules may change and/or vary depending on your country, we encourage you to carefully check the last updates from Spanish Goverment (www.mscbs.gob.es).

The scientific program will be organized in 3 sessions covering the topics:

New materials for synaptic electronics
