Explorative Workshop: Spintronic Perspectives on Neuromorphic Computing

13-15 August 2018

Joint Workshop of Forschungszentrum Jülich, Peter Grünberg Institute, Germany
and Center for Spintronics Research Network (CSRN), Japan

PGI Lecture Hall
Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany

Workshop Format

The workshop took place over a three-day period; four speakers each gave a 30 minute talk followed by a 60 minute discussion session, ending in a 30 minute coffee break.

A total of 12 speakers presented their talks at the Workshop. The Discussion Leader summarized the talk and the discussions, which are now made available to the community on the Workshop website.
