The Workshop on Frontiers of Neuromorphic Computing is taking place at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen 5-7 September 2023.

Registration is open now and will be open until 17 July.

We have reserved a contingent of rooms for participants until 9 July. Please check the accommodation tab for details.


Frontiers of Neuromorphic Computing

The recent explosion of deep learning applications imposes an urgent need for new energy-efficient alternative neuromorphic hardware concepts running at high speeds and relying on a high degree of parallelism. In this workshop, we will explore this rapidly developing area of (classical) neuromorphic computing over a range of scalable platforms, both on a theoretical and experimental level. These platforms include systems in the domains of optics, integrated photonics, spin systems, semi- and superconducting systems, soft matter, and others. In addition, new physical learning approaches will be discussed.
