Conference scope

The objective of the conference is to offer the opportunity for the Slovak and Czech scientists and guests from other countries working in the field of basic and applied magnetism to present their recent results and to exchange ideas and technical information.

Conference topics

  1. Theoretical problems of magnetically ordered materials, magnetization processes
  2. Amorphous, nanocrystalline and other soft magnetic materials
  3. Magnetic materials for energy applications (permanent magnets, magnetocaloric materials, motors, transformers, ...)
  4. Magnetic thin films and surfaces, spintronics, particles and nanostructures
  5. Low-dimensional magnetic materials, molecular magnets and ferrofluids
  6. Rare-earth and 5f-systems
  7. Strongly correlated electron systems, superconducting materials
  8. Multifunctional magnetic materials (multiferroic, magnetoelastic, shape memory, ...)
  9. Other magnetic materials and applications not included in 1-8

The official conference language is English. The proceedings of the conference will be published in Acta Physica Polonica A.
