The 2017 International workshop on future computing(IWOFC): memristive devices and systems is the 1st in series providing an international forum for the discussion of recent advances and future prospects in future computing systems. The workshop will be held on September 1-2, 2017 at Zhongguanyuan Global Village, Peking University, Beijng, China. The scopes of the workshop include theory, materials, devices, circuits, systems and other related research of future computing technology. The technological challenges and development trend of high intelligent and low power computing system will be discussed. Approximately over 100 workshop participants are expected to attend. The invited papers are scheduled to be published in the Science China Information Sciences.

The topics of this workshop include but are not limited to: 
1. Neuroscience & Algorithms
2. Neuromorphic Circuit & Architecture
3. Memristive theory
4. Memristive devices
5. Neuromorphic systems
6. Neuromorphic applications
