Memristor and Memristive Systems Symposium 2010

Engineers, scientists, entrepreneurs, academics and students (both graduate and undergraduate) are invited to attend this symposium, held in conjunction with IEEE CNNA 2010 — the International Workshop on Cellular Nanoscale Networks and Applications, Feb. 3-5.

The 2010 symposium will cover:

Memristor technology updates
New device technologies (materials and fabrication)
Device models for CAD
Novel circuits using memristors
Systems architecture harnessing memristor and memristive device properties
A poster session will held as a part of the CNNA 2010 on February 3.

Symposium registration is free.

Memristor History

Memristor, the missing basic circuit element, was first proposed in 1971 in a seminal paper published by Professor Leon O. Chua. The concept gained a broader scope in a paper co-published by Leon Chua and Sung Mo Kang in 1976. In 2008, Stan Williams, et al. at HP Labs unveiled a two-terminal titanium dioxide nanoscale device that exhibited memristor and memristive characteristics, thus igniting renewed interest in memristors.

The first symposium on Memristor and Memristive Systems, held at UC Berkeley on November 21-22, 2008, inspired novel circuit applications and new efforts to develop memristors using various types of materials and nanoparticles, and also novel circuit applications and CAD models.
