Memristive devices develop rapid in recent years attracting attention of academics and industry as ideal system for fundamental studies of nanoscale physicochemical processes and as multifuctional, low power, ultrafast and scalable devices. First products have been already offered at the market. Despite the huge progress problems with variability and device stability still remain, thus demanding further clarification of the origins of the problems. From different types memristive systems two system based on ReRAMs are especially promising - electrochemical metallization memories (ECM) and valence change memories (VCM). The aim of this symposium is to present the recent progress in microscopic understandings of the processes of resistive switching in these systems and the developent of the ReRAM based applications. In focus will be set oxide systems but alternative approaches/solutions and materials are also welcome.
