Memristors were first conjectured based on the missing constitutive link between flux and charge by Leon Chua as published in his seminal paper in 1971, which was further extended by L. O. Chua and S. M. Kang in their 1976 paper on memristive devices and systems. Recently physical realization of memristors was reported in Nature by HP’s Stan Williams team in 2008. To date, memristor represents the latest technology breakthrough to build electronics devices with characteristics that show an intriguing resemblance to the brain’s synapses.

The workshop on “Memristor-based Systems for Neuromorphic Applications” aims to present the latest advances in the field of memristor-based bio-inspired circuits and their latest breakthrough applications.

This workshop is part of the project “Memristor based Hybrid Cellular Systems for Neuromorphic Applications”. The project has been selected in the Framework of the Executive Programme for Scientific and Technological Cooperation between the Italian Republic and the Republic of Korea for the years 2013-2015. The project is carried out in collaboration with prof. Kyeong-Sik Min (Kookmin University - Korea).

The workshop is kindly supported by:
