August 28-30, 2018, Budapest, Hungary

The 16th International Workshop on Cellular Nanoscale Networks and their Applications

The 6th Memristor and Memristive Symposium will be held on the 27th of August

Call For Papers

Sensing and analyzing the visual world requires special sensors and processors in many cases. Sensor-porcessor arrays can solve problems from early image processing up to decision making. On the processor side there is a permanent progress in multi-core and many-core designs which are based on emerging nano-scale technologies with low power dissipation, intelligent, bio-inspired machines, massively-parallel architectures with learning capabilities, and memristive systems. CNNA 2018 will provide a forum for the presentation of latest results and exploration of future directions in the fields of:

Theory of nonlinear spatial-temporal dynamics

Cellular architectures and algorithms

Bio-inspired & neuromorphic circuits


Physical implementations of sensor-processor arrays (VLSI, Nanotechnology)

Learning algorithms & applications

Applications on FPGAs and GPUs
