Workshop on advanced nanomagnetism characterization
August, 30th – 31st, 2018
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.

The Multifunctional materials based on strategic metals meeting (M3E.CL from: Materiales Multifuncionales de Metales Estratégicos de Chile)
September, 6-8, 2018
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.
