MANIC-ETN Network Wide Event

From:Mo 19-10-2020
Until:Fr 23-10-2020

On October 19-23, 2020 the first workshop of the H2020-ETN network on Materials for Neuromorphic Circuits (MANIC) will take place.

Part of the programme are scientific lectures by renowned experts in the field . For that eight international speakers are invited who will talk about different types of memristive devices but also about Quantum Computing and data storage & memory in general.

The talks will be on Tuesday 20/10 (afternoon) and Wednesday 21/10 (morning). The programme can be found here and below. If you would like to attend those, please register here before Friday 5pm. Instructions on how to join the event will be sent in due time.
