About CeRAM


This symposium focuses on innovative memory solutions for post-silicon and post-Neumann computers that have surpassed the evolution of 80 years since the invention of the transistor. From the host in Kyoto, where has cultivated manufacturing with an emphasis on wisdom in tradition*1), the world's key persons will depict the technology and its direction. The CeRAM in the symposium sub-title will be introduced by Dr. Araujo*2), who developed it with an innovative correlated electronic switch using the concept of quantum effects by Nobel Prize-winning physicist N.F.Mott. At the Symposium, we can share new wisdom from electrons to the quantum world, in order to respond to changes in the industrial structure due to the increase in big data and the development of AI / IoT technology. ---References--- *1) From Kyoto, from Tradition to the Future: Reference Books ( Reference 1 and Reference 2 ) *2) CeRAM: Most Current Papers (Applied Physics Letters Materials 2022 Apr.) and Introductory article

*The presentations will be with either English or Japanese. *The contents of this symposium will be published as the proceedings later.
