Conference / Magnetism: JEMS 2016

The Joint European Magnetic Symposia are the most important and comprehensive conference on magnetism in Europe. JEMS focuses on a broad range of topics embracing applicative and fundamental aspects of magnetism, as well as novel magnetic materials. Presentations consist of plenary, semi-plenary, and contributed talks, complemented by poster sessions. A number of invited speakers give lectures on important recent advances in the field. The attendance of young students is welcome.

The Joint European Magnetics Symposia (JEMS) has evolved over the last 15 years into a premier scientific forum for presenting the latest cutting edge developments in magnetism and magnetic materials research. The conference has a breadth of topics ranging from the fundamental to the applied, and exemplifying the diversity of approach inherent to the European context. Topics range across all areas of current interest and include strongly correlated systems, materials for energy and biomedical applications, spintronics, ultrafast optical switching, chiral spin materials and magnonics.

The structure of the conference ensures that all participants can enjoy plenary and semi-plenary speakers from around the world, representing leading efforts at the frontiers of topical areas. Attendees are encouraged to contribute to specialised symposia through talks and poster sessions devoted to their specific research topics.

Glasgow has a rich and proud history in the subject of magnetism. The city hosted the pioneering research of Lord Kelvin and John Kerr, and has brought the same spirit of innovation and ingenuity to many other aspects of science and engineering, truly one of the cradles of the industrial revolution. Culturally, the city is a centre for Scottish arts with a thriving music scene, innovative artistic community, and a richly diverse centre. Moreover, the city serves as a gateway to the Scottish Highlands – some of the world's most enchanting and magical landscapes. We cordially invite participants to take the opportunity to explore both the city and country.

Venue and location
The conference will be held at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) in Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city.
