EPFL-ETH Zürich summer school on "Spin-based device architectures for neuromorphic computing and storage"


This summer school will provide an overview of hardware implementations of neuromorphic computing techniques and then emphasize recent and novel approaches which are spin-based and promise a reduction in power consumption. Combining lectures and exercises designed by experts from materials science over neuroscience to computer engineering as well as a round table discussion, this interdisciplinary school will benefit and stimulate participants from various domains ranging from machine learning to condensed matter physics.

School highlights: 
  • Lectures and exercise sessions from internationally leading researchers working on various areas such as spintronics and magnonics
  • Opportunity for poster presentation about your research
  • Journal club session and round table disucssion with experts 
  • 2 ECTS will be awarded to PhD students (Course code: MSE-806
  • Registration fee: CHF 250  for PhD students and CHF 100 for Master students
