School / Magnetism: 2018 European School on Magnetism

As of 2017, the European School on Magnetism is held every year, except those years when the Summer School of the IEEE Magnetics Society is held in Europe. In 2018, ESM will be hosted in Kraków, from 17 to 28 September. The School is chaired by Marek Przybylski, under the auspices of the Academic Centre for Materials and Nanotechnology, AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków, Poland.

2018 European School on Magnetism

The topic for the 2018 European School on Magnetism will be Magnetism by Light, part of the Series of the European School on Magnetism. The School will take place from Sep 17th to Sep 28th 2018 in Kraków, Poland. The School is chaired by Marek Przybylski, under the auspices of the Academic Centre for Materials and Nanotechnology, AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków. Kraków is the second largest and one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in Poland. The history of the city dates back to the 7th century. It hosts 10 public and 13 private universities, several Institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences, and the SOLARIS National Synchrotron Radiation Center, delivering its first beam for users in 2017. Kraków is conveniently connected by plane.

Like previous editions of ESM, the 2018 School aims at providing a thorough understanding of magnetism based on a broad series of fundamental lectures, while offering the latest insights into up-to-date aspects of magnetism with lectures focusing on a special topic. The topic covered in 2018 is Magnetism by Light. This covers a wide range of fundamental phenomena deeply rooted in condensed matter physics, specific instrumentation and opportunities for applications. Focused lectures will cover ultrafast light-induced magnetization processes, magnetoplasmonics, microwave magnetism, magneto-optics, spectroscopic and synchrotron-based techniques etc. The School will be an opportunity for young scientists from the two fields, to meet, share their expertise and network.

The School is addressed at young scientists, mainly PhD students and post-docs, both experimentalists and theoreticians. It will consist of a ten-day training of lectures and practicals provided by prominent scientists active in today's research, interactive question sessions, access to a library of magnetism-related books, and industrial contributions. The detailed program will be disclosed on September 2017, and the lecturers in November 2017. Request for participation will be launched in the Spring 2018.

ESM 2018 will be held in Kraków, Poland, with dates 17-28th Sep 2018. The topic is "Light and Magnetism". As for previous School, activities will consist in lectures (40h), question sessions (8h), access to a Library on Magnetism, and practicals (4-6h).

Subscribe to the mailing list to stay tuned.

Request for participation in the school opens on March 5th, 2018. Potential attendees are expected to provide, along with their application form, a motivation letter and, for PhD students and post-docs, a recommendation letter from their supervisor. The forthcoming important dates are:

April 20th, 2018: deadline for the requests for participation

May 18th, 2018: notification of acceptance or waiting list

July 1st, 2018: deadline for payment of the fees, otherwise cancellation for the benefice of the waiting list.

Registration fees will be 450€ for students, PhD and post-docs, and 650€ for long-term contracts and permanent staff (tenure academic positions, private companies, etc). The fees cover accommodation, breakfast and lunch meals, coffee breaks, local transport, excursion and social activities for the full duration of the school.


Various financial supports have allowed keeping these fees moderate, to support the participation of students. Travel costs remain at the charge of the attendees. Nevertheless, a few scholarships for waiving registration fees may be granted in very special cases where financial support is clearly an obstacle for attending the school. More details about the registration procedure may be found on the 2018 website:
