The Materials, devices and systems for neuromorphic computing conference took place in Groningen (The Netherlands) from 28th to 29th of March 2022 and online. 

The era of Moore’s law, which predicts the doubling of processing power for computers every two years, has come to an end, and we are reaching the physical limits of device miniaturization that can be achieved with the current technology. This has increased the demand for novel materials that form the physical building blocks for low-power computing systems capable of learning, pattern recognition and analysis of large streams of unstructured data.

The goal of this conference was to bring together leading researchers in neuromorphic computing to present new research and develop new collaborations in the area of novel materials, devices and systems for neuromorphic computing. This conference presented an overview of the recent insights into the desired properties of materials and devices for brain-inspired computing. Here not only memristor based architectures will be discussed, but also CMOS or hybrid based architectures. In addition, the conference had session on sensing and learning of physical systems as this is an important part in the development of neuromorphic computing and to  bridge the gap between materials and devices and applications, including brain machine interfaces. Key showcases of novel neuromorphic materials and devices will be highlighted in relation to applications within industry.
