PlasmoniAC Newsletter issue 3, November 2021 is out! Get a glimpse into the latest achievements of PlasmoniAC EU project while bringing its vision to fruition!


Computing industry is rapidly moving from a programming to a learning area, with the reign of the von Neumann architecture starting to fade, after many years of dominance. Neuromorphic photonics has come forward as a new research field, aiming to transfer the well-known high-bandwidth and low-energy interconnect credentials of photonic circuitry in the area of neuromorphic platforms. The immense potential of neuromorphic photonics for energy efficient and blazing fast processing capabilities will be highlighted in this workshop by industrial and academic pioneers. Recent performance breakthroughs and technology trends will be discussed shedding light into several emerging applications areas.

The target audience is MSc and PhD students, researchers and industry leaders.
