About the Conference
Advancements in computer capabilities in the last fifty years had been closely linked to miniaturization of CMOS technology, while the underlying structure of digital computing systems has been based on von Neumann architecture, where the memory and execution units are logically and physically separated, using various types of interconnect for communication between them. Recently, device scaling has slowed down, while electrical interconnect has become both a performance bottleneck and a major source of power dissipation, which is currently the most critical limiter for technology growth. Conventional memory technologies, such as Flash, DRAM, and SRAM, are unable to keep up with market requirements for higher density and lower power. Flash memory has already achieved its physical limits, and cannot be scaled further, primarily due to its limited endurance.
These problems can be addressed by emerging new semiconductor devices, such as Resistive Random Access Memory (RRAM), Conductive Bridge Random Access Memory (CBRAM), Phase Change Memory (PCM), Spin-Transfer Torque Magentoresistance Random Access Memory (STT-MRAM), memristors, 3D Xpoint and others. Since these technologies are useful both as memory cells and as novel switching circuits, they can be used to augment traditional CMOS gates and enable new computing systems.
This workshop will bring together researchers and executives from academia and industry to discuss the different aspects of emerging solid state memories including device physics, circuits, architecture, reliability, security, software, and system. We believe that these technologies open opportunities for radical changes in all of the aforementioned aspects and that bringing together people from different disciplines can give better perspective on the influence of these technologies and be mutually inspiring.
We will have speakers from all of these fields, including world-leading researchers and executives from industry who will discuss the commercialization aspects of these technologies. The speaker list covers speakers from all of the disciplnes and together they will cover all of the relevant issues that need to be considered when adding new technologies to existing systems and how these technlogies may enable new systems.
We expect a large national and international audience to attend the workshop, including students who will present posters. The workshop is part of the "Stephen and Sharon Seiden Frontiers in Engineering and Science Workshop" annual event at the Technion and will be followed by the annual training school of EU COST Action IC-1401 MemoCIS.
