Workshop on advanced nanomagnetism characterization

 

August, 30th – 31st, 2018

website

 

Systems at the nanometric scale present great potential from both the basic scientific and technological point of view. The decrease in size of such systems brought up new ch allenges, with greater difficulties in their characterization. This satellite workshop to the 2018 International Conference on Molecule-based Magnets, will get together specialists on advanced characterization techniques that can be used to get information about magnetism at the nanoscale. Having in mind that real problems normally require several approaches to be investigated, this workshop intends to bring together and share the experience and expertise of researchers that use the most different probes to tackle magnetism like neutrons, electromagnetic radiation in several spectral regions, ions, among others. Also, the workshop is aimed to techniques that could complement the magnetic information, like crystalline and electronic structure characterization. 

The workshop will be realized at the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory, in Campinas, São Paulo. The participant will have the opportunity to know more about Sirius, the new Brazilian Synchrotron Light Source, which will be the largest and most complex scientific infrastructure ever built in the country and one of the first fourth-generation synchrotron light sources of the world.

 

Venue:

Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS)/ Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) – Rua Giuseppe Maximo Scolfaro, 10000 – Campinas – São Paulo – Brazil

Rising star ICMM2018 Pre-Conference

 

September, 1st 2018

 

The International community of the interdisciplinary area of Molecular Magnetism will be concentrated for the first time in the southern hemisphere. Aiming to introduce and integrate young professionals into the Molecular Magnetism community, we are happy to propose the Rising Star ICMM2018 Pre-Conference Meeting. The event will consist in two tutorial lectures given on important research topics by senior lecturers of the community and oral presentations of young researchers, who got the doctoral degree after January 2010. If you wish to present a talk in this meeting, please send a two pages CV and the abstract to icmm2018@gmail.com before the 1st of March 2018. Please use the abstract template of the ICMM2018 Conference. The covered topics are the same as for the ICMM2018 Conference. There will be no additional registration costs for registered ICMM2018 participants. We encourage young researchers and students to attend this pre-conference. This will be a great opportunity to warm up the discussion on current trends of molecular magnetism and as a preparation to the following ICMM2018 conference. We kindly ask the participants of the Pre-Conference Meeting to send an email with their full name and affiliations to icmm2018@gmail.com, including the string "Inscription to Rising Star Meeting" as the e-mail subject. We will reply by email to confirm the inscription request.

The Multifunctional materials based on strategic metals meeting (M3E.CL from: Materiales Multifuncionales de Metales Estratégicos de Chile)

 

September, 6-8, 2018

website

 

Chile is a country with a long term tradition in copper mining and we have important reserves in different metals. To give extra added value to our metals, it is central to increase the research focused on them. This satellite meeting is intended to be an opportunity for the young generations of Chilean researchers to interact with well known scientists of the Molecular Magnetism, Molecular Materials, Inorganic Materials & Coordination Chemistry areas. As this is the first time that the ICMM is held in the South Hemisphere and many well know scientist are coming to our neighbor country, Brazil, it is the perfect opportunity for those scientists who never have been in Chile, to visit us and meet our young students and young researchers interested in developing the materials research area.

 

Venue:

GAM Center (Centro Cultural Gabriela Mistral) - Av. Libertador Bernardo O' Higgins 227, Santiago, Chile.

It is close to the Universidad Católica station - Line 1 of the subway. 

 

Invited speakers: To be announced soon
