Room
Autrans 1

The workshop's topics include, but not limited to, the following:

  • Stochastic primitives for neural networks and other neuromorphic architectures
  • Neuromorphic hardware architectures based on stochastic computing
  • Methods for design, synthesis, analysis, and verification of stochastic circuits
  • Stochastic circuits and architectures based on emerging technologies
  • Applications of neuromorphic stochastic architectures and case studies

The workshop will be co-located with the DATE 2020 conference. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to register using DATE’s regular registration system. DATE workshops have no formal proceedings but SCONA will prepare an informal electronic proceedings distributed to the workshop participants.

A special issue of IEEE Design & Test Magazine on the topic of the workshop will appear. There will be a separate call for papers for this special issue; the preliminary deadline is May 1.
