BEYOND! von Neumann Computing

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
