Workshop Scope

The MEM-Q workshop series gets together leading experts and research groups with significant contribution to the contemporary state-of-the-art of memristive nanomaterials and technologies, working towards the development of memristors as building blocks for quantum and neuromorphic computing, breaking the limitations and red-brick wall of the conventional Boolean logic and von Neumann architecture. MEM-Q workshops will provide a timely discussion on the emerging applications of memristive devices in new-generation information storage and models of quantum and neural circuits for neuroprocessors, programmable arrays and quantum computers. Furthermore, the workshops target to create new ideas related to stochastic nature and nonlinear dynamics of memristors that provide for the creation of brain-like spiking neural network architectures and neurohybrid systems. Stimulated round table and panel discussions are envisioned to contribute to an enhanced interaction between physicists, neurobiologists, engineers, computer scientists.

The following topics are suggested for prospective authors (but not limited to):
