Latest developments on the science of chiral materials discussed at ChiMag2016 Symposium

International symposium

Hiroshima University

The ChiMag 2016 Symposium is to be held from Sunday, Feb. 21 to Wednesday, Feb. 24 at Oriental Hotel Hiroshima in Hiroshima, Japan.

The purpose of the symposium is to offer a good opportunity for researchers worldwide pursuing the nature of chiral magnets to discuss and exchange ideas. The main topics for the symposium are as follows:

  1. Nonlinear and topological spin textures in chiral magnets
  2. Probing spin chirality and crystallographic chirality by electron, neutron, X-ray, muon, and ultrasound beams
  3. Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction in crystals with broken chiral symmetry
  4. Systematic synthesis of chiral magnetic crystals, including molecular-based, transition-metal, and rare-earth-based crystals
  5. Physics of helical and chiral superconductivity

The online registration form is now available. Please visit the ChiMag2016 Symposium web page to register and find out more information.

This symposium will be held as one of the international joint meetings planned by JSPS Core-to-Core Program (A. Advanced Research Networks) "A Consortium to Exploit Spin Chirality in Advanced Materials," and EPSRC-JSPS Core-to-Core Collaboration "A Consortium to Exploit Photon and Electron Chirality in Advanced Materials." In addition, the ChiMag 2016 Symposium is also a joint meeting with IRSChM (currently ChiMag Symposium) and the DMI Conference, which has been held biannually in Russia.
