Call for Papers: Special Issue on Nonvolatile Memory for Efficient Implementation of Neural/Neuromorphic Computing, IEEE Journal on Exploratory Solid-State Computational Devices and Circuits

Guest Editor: Shimeng Yu, Georgia Institute of Technology,

Editor-in-Chief: Ian Young, Intel,

This special issue of the IEEE Journal on Exploratory Computational Devices and Circuits (JXCDC) aims to call for the recent research progress of the NVM based neuromorphic computing from device-level, array-level up to system-level. The interaction and co-optimization between materials/device engineering and circuit/architecture are solicited.

Topics of Interests

Prospective authors are invited to submit original works and/or extended works based on conference presentations on the topics from a wide range of NVM based neuromorphic computing. Here the NVM devices include but not limit to the following: PCM, RRAM/CBRAM, STT-MRAM (or other spintronic memory), ferroelectric based memory including FeFET or Ferroelectric Tunnel Junction (FTJ), floating-gate or charge-trap transistor, NOR and NAND Flash, etc. The following topics are solicited: 

  • NVM materials/devices for neurons
  • NVM materials/devices for synapses
  • Selector materials/devices for crossbar array for analog in-memory computation
  • Array-level demonstration for analog in-memory computation
  • NVM based inference engine design including peripheral circuitry
  • NVM based training accelerator design including peripheral circuitry
  • Architectural-level design for processing-in-memory or compute-in-memory with NVM
  • Brain-inspired spiking neural networks with NVM
  • Hardware-aware neuromorphic learning algorithms and architectures
  • Benchmarking tools for NVM based hardware accelerator design
