Frontiers in Magnetism 2022

March 16-18, Messina, Italy (in-person)

Frontiers in Magnetism 2022 aims to highlight current research in the field of magnetism, both from the fundamental and application point of view. The meeting will be held in person, and represents a chance for exchanging ideas and creating collaborations among researchers. Topics will cover a large spectrum, ranging from unconventional computing performed by magnetic devices, parallel computing for micromagnetic simulations, neural networks and other applications implemented through spintronic devices. The workshop is organized by Politecnico di Bari, and University of Messina, with the support of the Italian Chapter of IEEE Magnetics Society, and of Petaspin Association.

Chairs: Riccardo Tomasello, Politecnico di Bari; Anna Giordano, University of Messina.
