FOR 2093


05. September 2016 – 08. September 2016

Zwei Studenten und eine Tasse Kaffee

The research on memristive devices and their application in neuromorphic systems has become one of the most exciting areas in solid state physics and electronic systems. The possibility to engineer interfaces on the atomic scale accompanied with a tremendous progress in the electronic and structural analytics has led to a gradually better matching of experimental results with theoretical predictions and thus, to the hope of discovery new and/or improved functional memory devices. Memristive devices exhibit a wealth of phenomena and attracted a considerable interest from both the fundamental and device relevant point of research. 

The aim of the 1st International Workshop on Memristive devices for neuronal Systems held on the Color Line Ferry Kiel-Oslo-Kiel from 5 to 8. September 2016 was to provide a forum for fruitful and interdisciplinary discussions between experimentalists and theorist from solid state devices to neurobiology and most to bring students close to the forefront of this research area in science. Renowned experts were invited to introduce fundamental topics from the broad area of functional memory devices for a wide audience to facilitate the transfer of concepts from different fields and stimulate new research activities across the traditional borders of research areas from devices physics to neuronal systems. 

The workshop is supported by the German Research Society (DFG) via the Research Group FOR 2093 entitled “Memristive Devices for neuronal Systems”.
