Non-volatile memory devices are currently key elements of several electronic and portable systems (digital cameras, solid state disks, smartphones, computers, e-books, tablets,..) and their market and potential applications are expected to continuously increase in the next years. Even though the Flash memory represents today the leading technology, several emerging non-volatile memory concepts, exploiting innovative inorganic and organic materials, as well as new storage mechanisms, are under investigation to achieve better performance, higher scalability, and to address novel applications. Besides pursuing the downscaling of non-volatile memories in terms of minimum size and integration density, which is approaching physical limits, the new paradigm is to develop devices that can integrate multiple functionalities, such as computing and storing information at the same time. This approach will enable the fabrication of novel nanoelectronics circuits with potential applications in several fields, including flexible electronics, computation schemes emulating the brain functionality, non-volatile logics.
This symposium will address recent advances on organic and  inorganic non-volatile memory devices, with focus on innovative storage concepts beyond Flash, new materials and devices, integration schemes and selectors for the storage elements, understanding and modelling of the physical mechanisms for data storage down to the nanoscale, memristive devices and novel applications towards adaptive electronics.
