Like previous editions of ESM, the 2013 School aimed 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 proposed in 2013, Magnetism for energy, covered a wide range of phenomena from materials for energy conversion and harvesting, and spintronics for lower-consumption microelectronics. It raised both fundamental issues of condensed matter physics, and opportunities for applications. The detailed topics covered were: basic concepts, magnetism in matter, temperature effects, magnetic characterization, magnetization processes, materials (permanent magnets, magnetostrictive materials, phase change-magnetocaloric and shape-memory, soft), spintronics, devices, industry perspectives.
The School was addressed at young scientists, mainly PhD students and post-docs, both experimentalists and theoreticians. It gathered 19 lecturers and 88 participants coming mainly from Europe, with a few positions open to other countries (Russia, Israel, south America, Japan). It consisted of a ten-day training of lectures, tutorials, practicals and interactive question sessions, provided by prominent scientists active in today's research, and access to a library of magnetism-related books.
