The topic for the 2019 European School on Magnetism was Experimental techniques, part of the Series of the European School on Magnetism. The School took place from Sep 2nd to Sep 13th 2019 in Brno, Czech Republic. The School was chaired by Michal Urbánek and co-organized by Vojtěch Uhlíř, under the auspices of the Brno University of Technology and the Central European Institute of Technology. Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic, the seat of the judicial authority of the Czech Republic and important administrative, cultural, industrial and science center. It hosts 5 public, 1 state and 7 private universities, several Institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences and research centres. Brno can be reached via its international airport, there is also a good connection from Vienna and Prague airports.
Like previous editions of ESM, the 2019 School aims at providing a thorough understanding of magnetism based on a broad series of fundamental lectures, while offering the latest insights into up-to-date aspects of magnetism with lectures focusing on a special topic. The topic covered in 2019 is Experimental techniques. This covers from the fundamentals phenomena underlying experimental techniques, to their implementation and data analysis, including hands-on practicals. The School will be an opportunity for young scientists from the two fields, to meet, share their expertise and network.
The School is addressed at young scientists, mainly PhD students and post-docs, both experimentalists and theoreticians. It consists of an eleven-day training of lectures and practicals provided by prominent scientists active in today's research, interactive question sessions, access to a library of magnetism-related books, and industrial contributions. Lectures (slides) and other support documents are online (see Program).
