BEYOND! workshop series

BEYOND! von Neumann Computing

May 18th-21st, 2016
Harnack-Haus Berlin

  • The workshop “BEYOND! von Neumann Computing" addresses essential challenges and aims at identifying key questions towards the establishment of Neuromorphic hardware. Paying tribute to the topic’s nature, the workshop targets a highly interdisciplinary audience.


  • Participants will be selected from multiple scientific disciplines spanning physics, computation, neuroscience and biology.


  • The list of invited speakers follows the international and interdisciplinary approach of the BEYOND! workshop concept.

Topics to be covered

  • Brain inspired computing concepts
  • Beyond von Neumann hardware
  • Spatio-temporal networks as neuromorphic hardware
  • Delay networks as neuromorphic hardware
  • Novel devices for hardware neurons
