Petaspin – Home

MISSION

Petaspin is an Italian association which main missions are to support scientific research in many fields of engineering and applied physics, particularly in the field of magnetism, and to disseminate scientific results through conferences and meetings, also organized in collaboration with other institutions and associations. It was founded in 2018 in Messina, Italy. Since then, it has organized several international meetings, which have been successfull among the participants. In 2020, due to Covid-19 pandemic, Petaspin has set up a platform for virtual dissemination of scientific results through online seminars which have involved scientists from all around the world. The association, in addition to its members, includes a virtual community whose members support the development and the validation of numerical tools, for scientific scopes.

STORY

Petaspin was founded on February 12th, 2018, from an idea of Giovanni Finocchio, associate professor of Electrical Engineering at the Department of Mathematical and Computer Sciences, Physical Sciences and Earth Sciences (MIFT) of the University of Messina, Italy.

The founding members of Petaspin are:

Giovanni Finocchio, since then President of the Association;

Vito Puliafito, vice-President and Secretary of the Association, assistant professor of Electrical Engineering at the Department of Engineering of the University of Messina;

Anna Giordano, post-doc of the INGV, Italy;
