Current Research in magnetism (CRIM) 2019

This year sees the return of the CRIM series in a different format to previous years highlighting current ‘hot topics’ in the field of magnetism. This year the theme is recent advances in antiferromagnetism. The one day conference will be held at the new IOP building, which is less than a 5 minute walk from Kings Cross, which is a great opportunity to see the new home of the IOP and what it has to offer.

Due to support from the IOP Magnetism Group and the Collaborative Computational Project on Magnetism (CCP-Mag) the event is free to register for IOP members and just £25 for non-members. Lunch and refreshments will be provided and there will be a mix of invited and contributed talks along with posters during lunch. Registration is now open at this link and abstract submissions are being accepted (see link here).

There are three confirmed invited speakers from the UK and Europe covering both experimental and theoretical advances in the field. The three invited speakers are:

  • Chiara Cicarelli, University of Cambridge, UK
  • Tomas Jungwirth, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Czech Republic
  • Eduardo Tapia, Peter Grünberg Institute (PGI), Germany

Institute of Physics Magnetism Meeting 2018

Monday and Tuesday this week saw the 2018 UK Magnetism meeting organised by the IOP. It was great to see many familiar faces and some excellent talks and posters. There was a plenary talk given by Albert Fert and the Wohlfarth lecture given by my former supervisor, Prof Gino Hrkac. There was also the AGM for the IOP Magnetism group and I am very happy to have been elected as an ordinary member of the group, thanks to all who voted for me, I look forward to getting more involved in the IOP. I am looking forward to the next magnetism conference!

MERI Symposium 2017

Today saw the final day and close of the 2017 MERI symposium  at Sheffield Hallam. The two day event saw a range of talks from academic staff (current and former) and PhD students, as well as posters from PhD students and undergraduates. Here is Professor Wayne Cranton, Assistant Dean of Research, presenting the prizes for best postgraduate talk and poster, as well as the best undergraduate poster.
