Mainz, 3-7 SEPT: Joint European Magnetic Symposia (JEMS) 2018 conference

The next JEMS2018 conference will take place from the 3rd to 7th September 2018 in Mainz, Germany (https://jems2018.org/). It will host a symposium on “Magnetism and spintronics in molecular materials and carbon based systems”.

JEMS covers a wide breadth of cutting-edge topics in magnetism and magnetic materials research, ranging from the fundamental to the applied. The topics cut across the entire field of magnetism, such as biomangetism applications, chiral magnetism and skyrmions, multiferroics, strongly correlated systems, topological magnetic materials, ultrafast optical spintronics, and magnonics.

The conference incorporates plenary and semi-plenary talks from internationally renowned speakers, representing the latest advances in magnetism. Attendees are also able to contribute to specific symposia through talks and poster sessions focused on their research topics.Mainz and the Rheinpfalz region are important centers of magnetism research in Germany. The Kaiserslautern-Mainz collaborative center SPIN+X and the Spin Phenomena Interdisciplinary Center (SPICE) lead many of these efforts. In addition, Mainz combines wine, culture and lifestyle in an extraordinary manner. The city lies right in the middle of Rhine-Hesse, the largest wine-growing district in Germany. Mainz is of course the birthplace of the first global communications revolution, as the home of Johannes Gutenberg. It is a starting point to explore the Rhein Valley, one of the most enchanting tourist destinations in Europe.The organizing committee of JEMS 2018 is looking forward to welcoming you to Mainz!

The abstract submission is open until 31st of March, 2018!

    Unfortunately, our good friend, collaborator and benefactor or many ICMAB researchers, Dr. Massimo Marezio, passed away last May 13, 2019, in his hometown, Rome. Prof. Xavier Obradors, who met him while he was doing his PhD thesis in Grenoble, has written him some words as an obituary in the form of a last personal letter. Read it here. Massimo se n’è ándato, a sempre caro amico!
  • Since 20 May 2019 our measurements are attached to nature constants

    On May 20, 2019, this year's World Metrology Day, the changes in the definitions of the International System of Units (SI) were accepted. All the units, now, depend on the laws of nature, instead of depending on physical artefacts. The "Big Kilo" as we knew it, will no longer be the reference to the "kilo". Instead, this unit will be based on the Planck constant, as the "meter" is based on the speed of light. In the redefinition, four of the seven SI base units – the kilogram, ampere, kelvin, and mole – were redefined by setting exact numerical values for the Planck constant (h), the elementary electric charge (e), the Boltzmann constant (k), and the Avogadro constant (NA), respectively.
