Welcome to the 2020 Trends in Magnetism Conference (TMAG2020). This year the conference will be held in Cefalù (Italy) from the morning of 7 to the late afternoon of 11 September 2020. The scope of the conference is to furnish the trends and the main challenges to face in a wide range of magnetism-related topics, both fundamental and applied. Some sessions will review the latest advances in magnetic materials and devices, topological magnetism, solitons, magnetic characterization, emerging applications, geo-magnetism, neuromorphic computing based on magnetic devices and materials, spin electronics including devices, energy and power applications, spintronics-CMOS ibrid modeling, biomagnetism and much more, with experienced invited speakers and trends tutorials. The conference will also provide an international forum to discuss about those topics and to identify potential future collaborations. We expect to bring together the community of leading researchers working in the area of nanomagnetism, spin dynamics, spin-transport, etc., and their applications.
The conference will be organized at Hotel Cefalù Sea Palace; was born from a brilliant architectural and entrepreneurial project that was designed to make something important in one of the most beautiful scenery in the world, represented by the millenary Cefalù Arab Norman Cathedral with its overhanging Rocca and a laid back town on the water of its ancient marina.
This conference follows the two IUPAP policy statements:
Free Circulation of Scientists: The principle of the Universality of Science is fundamental to scientific progress. This principle embodies freedom of movement, association, expression and communication for scientists, as well as equitable access to data, information and research materials. In pursuing its objectives with respect to the rights and responsibilities of scientists, the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) actively upholds this principle, and, in so doing, opposes any discrimination on the basis of such factors as ethnic origin, religion, citizenship, language, political stance, gender, or age. IUPAP should only sponsor conferences and events at institutions and in countries that uphold this principle. If scientists are excluded from attending IUPAP-sponsored international conferences by a host institution or country on the basis of any of these factors, IUPAP should register its concern at the highest level of that institution or country, and should not sponsor any future events in that country until such exclusions have been eliminated. [ Section 1. (http://iupap.org/sponsored-conferences/conference-policies/)]
Harassment at Conferences: It is the policy of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) that all participants at an IUPAP-supported Conference will enjoy a comfortable experience, and that they will treat each other with respect at all times. The conference organisers will appoint two advisors at the conference who will consult with those who have suffered from harassment and who will suggest ways of redressing their problems, and an advisor who will counsel those accused of harassment.
