Neuromorphic Computing in the Netherlands


Neuromorphic Computing inspired by computation in the brain is rapidly growing in high-tech research as the principal paradigm for EdgeAI. In this workshop, we aim to bring together researchers and practitioners from different disciplines working with neuromorphic technology to discuss trends from algorithmic, architectural, and application domains across the Netherlands. 

Time: 30th September 2022, 11.30 – 18.00h (CEST)

Location (hybrid): Robot Atrium – MM 01.430 & MM 01.573 (poster & lunch space) and MM 04.610 (talks) at the Maria Montessori building | Thomas van Aquinostraat 4, 6525 GD Nijmegen. AI Department, Donders Center of Cognition, Radboud University Nijmegen. Please find additional info on how to find us here. Once at the building, please follow the signs to room 01.573 for registration (or see map below).


Registration for ONLINE participation still possible until Thursday, September 29th. Registration is now closed!

The event is free, but registration is required. Please be aware that we have limited space, and the in-person registration will close when full. You also need to register to get the online link. You may join the meeting on Zoom via this link from 12.45 CEST on the day of the event.
