International Workshop on Advanced Materials-to-Device Solutions for Synaptic Electronics  

Modena - 17.11.2021 - International Workshop on Advanced Materials-to-Device Solutions for Synaptic Electronics

CNR Nano and ICN2 organized the International Workshop on Advanced Materials-to-Device Solutions for Synaptic Electronics, in the framework of the EU funded INTERSECT project .

The workshop has been held in Barcelona from November 10 to November 12, 2021 in the amazing location of Casa de Convalescencia.
More then 100 person attended the workshop in presence or online, and a fruitful dialoge started thanks to the interdisciplinarity of the field and the presence of professionals from academia, research centres and industry working in the field of synaptic electronics and neuromorphic computing, with a specific focus on the role of materials in the design of next-generation devices for these applications.

The success of the event has been ensured both by the activity of the scientific committee and by the careful organization of the organizing committee.
Satisfaction for the outcomes of the event was expressed by Dr. Arrigo Calzolari, INTERSECT Project Coordinator and researcher at CNR-Nano in Modena (Italy) and by Prof. Pablo Ordejón, ICN2 Director and leader of the Theory and Simulation Group, partner of the INTERSECT project and host of the workshop.
The invited speakers analyzed four themes in the different sessions:

1. ferroelectric devices and materials;
2. interoperability, ontology and workflow in material modelling;
3. alternative solutions for neuromorphic computing;
4. phase change materials and devices.

The INTERSECT project has been conceived to leverage European leadership in materials’ modelling software and infrastructure to provide novel solutions for big data, machine learning, and quantum computing. The resulting IM2D framework –an interoperable material-to-device simulation platform– will integrate some of the most used open-source materials modelling codes (Quantum ESPRESSO and SIESTA) with models and modelling software for emerging devices (GinestraTM) via the SimPhoNy infrastructure for semantic interoperability and ontologies, powered by the AiiDA workflow engine, and its data-on-demand capabilities and apps interface.

The video of most of the sessions will be soon available on the ICN2 YouTube Channel. Stay tuned!

The INTERSECT project and the workshop have been possible thanks to the funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, under grant agreement No 814487.
