9th International RRAM/MRAM Workshop

Leuven, October 17-18, 2019

Dear Colleague,

Imec and Stanford NMTRI* are jointly organizing the 9th International RRAM/MRAM Workshop. Non-volatile magnetic-based and resistive-based memories are seen today as some of the most promising candidates to become key memory technologies of the future, with many potential applications, ranging from replacement of current mass production commodity memories to embedded applications and even creating novel market segments.

This year, the workshop will be held at the imec headquarters in Leuven, Belgium, on October 17th and 18th, 2019, and will be organized with the support of**.

This 9th Workshop will address various aspects of resistive switching memory (including oxide based RRAM, CBRAM, phase change memory and selectors) and magnetoresistive memory (including spin transfer torque, spin orbit torque, and VCMA-based MRAM), ranging from the fundamentals of materials and device physics to circuit/system and application areas, including the beyond-memory and neuromorphic computing application spaces. Selector is a key part of both memories and will be an integral part of our program.

The intention for this workshop is to serve as a forum gathering key scientists and technologists working on the above memories, including academia as well as industry, to discuss fundamental mechanisms controlling the operation, scalability and reliability of these exciting memory devices, their technological potential, novel circuit/system needs and approaches, as well as challenges ahead.

Previous workshop editions held in imec and Stanford were very successful, with participants from industry, academia, and research consortia. This workshop will follow the same successful format of previous editions. The workshop will consist of invited talks and panel discussion, as well as a poster session aiming at encouraging a wider participation including students. To foster discussions, the workshop will be kept small and participation will be by invitation only.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 9th International RRAM/MRAM Workshop, we herewith are pleased to invite you to mark your calendar and plan on attending this invitation-only workshop.

For further details concerning the program, registration, as well as for practical information, please check the links at the top of this page.

We are looking forward to your participation in this year’s workshop.

Sincerely Yours,
