Barcelona, 26-29 SEPT 2018: 14th International Symposium on Ferroic Domains

The forthcoming International Symposium on Ferroic Domains (ISFD-14) is going to be held in Barcelona, at the “Casa de Convalescencia”, a UNESCO-listed modernist building a stone’s throw from the Sagrada Familia.

Hosted in this 14th edition by the ICN2, the International Symposium on Ferroic Domains (ISFD) has been held bi-annually since 1989, timed to fall between the International Meeting of Ferroelectricity and the European Meeting of Ferroelectricity. It serves both as a half-way stop between them and as a portent of what’s going to be hot in the next year’s highlight meeting of ferroelectricity.The research themes cover experimental and theoretical advances in our understanding of domains, domain walls, phase boundaries and other topological mobile structures. Scientific quality and originality are the sole criteria for selecting talks.
