Dear colleagues,

The next session of the European School on Magnetism (ESM) is scheduled to take place in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, 6-17 Sep 2021. It will be organized in a mixed format, on-site and online. This shall allow all to participate whatever their wish or ability to travel at the time, and also beyond the on-site hosting capabilities for the waiting list. Nevertheless, we feel ready to turn it fully on-line if sanitary conditions requested it.

As with previous sessions of ESM, the 2021 School aims at providing a thorough insight into magnetism through a broad series of fundamental lectures and addressing a specific topic of current interest in more detail. The topic chosen for the 2021 School is: “From fundamental properties of matter to magnetic materials and applications”. We intend to cover modern aspects of bulk and layered materials, both about their fundamentals and their applications.

The School is addressed mainly to Ph.D. students and post-docs, both experimentalists and theoreticians. It will consist of approximately 40 hours of lectures, student projects conducted in small groups, practicals and tutorials, open question sessions (5-10h), and free access to a library on magnetism. Attendees will be able to present their own work during poster sessions. The detailed program is available from the website: http://magnetism.eu/school/2021/program.

Request for participation (registration) to the school opens today. Potential attendees are expected to provide, along with their application form, a motivation letter and, for Ph.D. students and post-docs, a recommendation letter from their supervisor. The forthcoming important dates are:

  • April 15th, 2021: deadline for the requests for participation
  • May 15th, 2021: notification of acceptance or waiting list
  • July 1st 20121: deadline for payment of the fees, otherwise cancellation for the benefice of the waiting list.

Registration fees will be 480€ for students, Ph.D. and post-docs, if affiliated to a national or European learned society (ex: National or European Physical Society), 510€ otherwise, and 680€ for long-term contracts and permanent staff (tenure academic positions, private companies, etc). The fees cover accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner, coffee breaks, local transport, excursion, and social activities for the full duration of the school. Online participation is offered with circa 60% discount.

Various financial supports have allowed keeping these fees moderate, to support the participation of students. Travel costs remain at the charge of the attendees. Nevertheless, a few scholarships for waiving registration fees may be granted in very special cases where financial support is clearly an obstacle for attending the school. More details about the registration procedure may be found on the website: http://magnetism.eu/school/2021/registration.

We would like to ask you to circulate this announcement to all those who may be interested in the School. Practical information will be updated on the website regularly.

On behalf of the scientific and organizing committees,

Daniel Andreica, Chair for ESM2021.
Olivier Fruchart, General Chair of ESM.
