The Asian Union of Magnetics Societies brings together several national Magnetics Societies in Asia, promoting research and higher education in magnetism.
The Asian Union of Magnetic Societies (AUMS) was initiated by the four magnetic societies – the Magnetics Society of Japan (MSJ), the Korean Magnetics Society (KMS), the Taiwan Association for Magnetic Technology (TAMT), and the Chinese Society of Magnetic Materials and Applications (CSMMA), proposed in 2007 and formally established on January 1, 2009. Since that time, the AUMS has been contributing tremendous efforts to promote advances in the fields of magnetism, magnetic materials and applications in Asia Pacific region. The IcAUMS conference has been very proud of providing an outstanding platform for all scientists, experts, and entrepreneurs to communicate and exchange recent academic and industrial developments. So far it has been successfully held five times in Korea (2010), Japan (2012), China (2014), Taiwan (2016) and Korea (2018). In addition, the Russian Magnetics Society (RMS) and the Vietnam Magnetics Society (VMS) were admitted to join the AUMS at the AUMS council meeting in Vietnam, 2018.
The European Magnetism Association (EMA) and the Asian Union of Magnetic Societies (AUMS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding in 2019, to encourage the exchange and dissemination of technical information, and to promote understanding and cooperation between the two organizations and between their members.
