The school “Spintronics: fundamentals and applications” will be held in the month of December in Messina (Italy) for the next three years (2022, 2023 and 2024) and it is designed for students approaching the research field of spintronics and related areas. This year it is scheduled from the morning of 13 December to the lunch time of 16 December. It consists of a well-planned program including lectures by international experts covering both fundamental aspects and applications of the spintronic technology together with interdisciplinary seminars. The students can also submit a pre-recorded talk of 15 minutes. The participation is restricted to 35 students based on a competitive application. The school is organized by the Petaspin association in collaboration and co-sponsored by the Italy chapter of the IEEE Magnetics society, by the project “Low Power Spintronics Wireless Autonomous Node (SWAN) Integrated Circuits Developed Via Spintronics Technology Accelerator Platform” SWAN-on-chip funded by the European Union within the call HORIZON-CL4-2021-DIGITAL-EMERGING-01 and by the project “The Italian factory of micromagnetic modeling and spintronics” funded by MIUR (Ministero dell’Università e della Ricerca) within the Italian call PRIN 2020. The co-organizers of the school are Prof. Giovanni Finocchio from the University of Messina and Prof. Mario Carpentieri from Politecnico di Bari.

Learning Objectives of the School

The learning objectives are to provide the necessary skills to learn and use micromagnetic modelling to design spintronic devices. As a case study, it will be explored magnetic vortex dynamics at both theoretical and experimental level.
