28.09.2023  Piotr Łuczak’s PhD dissertation accepted
Few days ago Piotr successfully defended his PhD dissertation titled “Development of hybrid symbolic-connectionist intelligent systems“, for which the research was done mainly within the MISEL project, and today The Lodz University of Technology has officially granted him the doctor’s degree. CONGRATULATIONS Piotr!


11.09.2023  MISEL Workshop at ESSCIRC-ESSDERC 2023 in Lisbon, Portugal
MISEL consortium organized a successful workshop titled “Technologies, devices, circuits, and algorithms for neuromorphic event-based vision system” at the most suitable occasion – the biggest European conference dedicated to solid-state circuits and devices. The workshop co-chaired by Jacek Flak and Ari Paasio consisted of 9 presentations and demo session. We had two guest speakers – Prof. Cristell Maneux from University of Bordeaux and Prof. Piotr Dudek from University of Manchester. The MISEL speakers were: Eero Lehtonen, Mika Laiho, Krzysztof Ślot, Victor Brea, Lars-Erik Wernersson, and Burkay Uzlu. Great presentations were followed by such a lively demo session that our panelists decided to let the demos continue instead of panel discussion that was planned to conclude the event.


21.06.2023  MISEL 2nd face-to-face meeting in Santiago de Compostela, Spain on 20-21.06.2023
After over a year we had another chance to meet in person for the consortium meeting. Such productive 2 days packed with sessions that went overtime.


06.06.2023 MISEL Workshop at ESSCIRC-ESSDERC 2023
MISEL consortium will organise a dissemination workshop at the ESSCIRC-ESSDERC 2023 conference in Lisbon. The workshop titled “Technologies, devices, circuits, and algorithms for neuromorphic event-based vision systems” will take place on September 11, 2023, at 13:30-18:00 in Room 3. The event will include presentations from the project partners as well as invited talks, demo session, and panel discussion.
