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!
