Les Diablerets, Switzerland Site Information

Organizers

Chairs:
Ludo J. Cornelissen & Davide D. Bossini

Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 17, 2017. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.

GRS Speaker Abstract Deadline: Although applications will be accepted until the date noted above, any applicants who wish to be considered for an oral presentation should submit their application by April 15, 2017. Please refer to the application instructions in the Meeting Description section below for more details (if available).

Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Spin Dynamics in Nanostructures is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The participants of this affiliated meeting will discuss novel results concerning the manipulation of spins in a broad group of materials and by a wide variety of stimuli (electric currents, temperature gradients, laser pulses). The main topics of the meeting will include antiferromagnetic spintronics, spin caloritronics, magnon spintronics, ultrafast spin dynamics and spin pumping. The phenomena under study will be discussed considering experimental results and theoretical approaches.

The meeting will start off with a general introduction into one of its main topics by one of the experts in the field. Furthermore, some of the challenges and opportunities of pursuing an academic career, in comparison with an employment in the private sector, will be addressed during a mentorship session, given by a senior scientist.

Application Instructions

The meeting will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.

The Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 15, 2017. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Deadline section above.
