 The 2019 Riken International Workshop on Neuromorphic Computing (R-WoNC'19)

                                Kobe, Japan
                            March 11 - 13, 2019

  - Registration due:       Feb 8, 2019 (AoE)
  - R-WoNC workshop:  Mar 11-12, 2019
  - Intel Loihi tutorial:      Mar 13, 2019

  R-WoNC'19 is the first international workshop on neuromorphic computing and
their applications. We foresee neuromorphic computing to be one of the 
important computing principles in the forthcoming Post-Moore era. The R-WoNC'19
is a full-2-day event with invited talks and a panel session as an opportunity 
for us to learn, share, and discuss the cutting-edge researches, issues, and 
possible future work with experts from the international neuromorphic community.
In conjunction with R-WoNC'19, we will also have an all-day tutorial on Intel's 
Loihi neuromorphic platform and SDK on the 3rd day (Mar 13). Intel's 
Neuromorphic Computing Lab will support this tutorial, which is open to all 
registered workshop attendees.
