Brain-Inspired Circuits & Architectures

CFP: IEEE NANO 2018 Special Track on “Brain-Inspired Circuits & Architectures”.

The call for papers is now open to the Special Track on “Brain-Inspired Circuits & Architectures”. This track is intended to disseminate  the research on Brain-inspired Circuits and Architectures to the Nano community and therefore is broad and includes applications.

Topics of Interest include, but are not restricted to:

  • Neuromorphic hardware
  • Embedded neural systems (including FPGAs)
  • Brain-inspired cognitive architectures, evolutionary robotics
  • Self-configuring , Self-healing or Self-aware systems
  • Memristor based computation and learning
  • Novel neural hardware applications
  • Deep Learning Hardware
  • Other topics in Brain-Inspired Circuits & Architectu
