This workshop explores the merging of spin-based devices and photonic processing. Currently, photons are used for information transport, electrons for processing and spins for storage. Future developments will require integration of these separate technologies to achieve novel and energy efficient alternatives to current technologies. This workshop brings senior and junior experts in these exciting fields with a perspective to merging efforts to overcome the challenges ahead.

This SPICE workshop will take place at the premises of Mainz Institute of Theoretical Physics, located at the Johannes Gutenberg University.

Applications to participate in the workshop must be made online before the 15th of July 2018 (

The applicants will be informed of acceptance in August 2018. The participation fee for non-speakers is 200 euros.
