Latin American Workshop on Magnetism and Magnetic Materials, July 25-29, 2010 Latin American School on Magnetism, July 22-24, 2010
Second announcement and call for abstracts
It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the IX Latin American Workshop on Magnetism, Magnetic Materials and their Applications (IX LAW3M) and the Latin American School on Magnetism to be held in the last two weeks of July, 2010. Both events will take place at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Manizales, Colombia. The meeting will consist of plenary sessions devoted to invited lectures (at least 15 invited speakers are expected) and to short contributed oral presentations, as well as poster sessions.
Manizales, the conference venue, is a town with 420.000 inhabitants located in the Middle Western part of Colombia, with most facilities and was recently considered the number 17th within the best cities of South America. It can be easily reached by plane or car from Bogota. The flight from the Manizales National Airport – La Nubia –lasts just 40 minutes to Bogota. Several hotels, conveniently located near both to the
Airport and the University, are available and provide appropriate accommodation at preferential rates. Due to its geographic position, people can enjoy in Manizales beautiful and diverse landscapes such as valleys, snow mountains and tropical forests.
The conference is being organized by a joint effort between many different national institutions and international organizations. LAW3M has a very important history on the topic of magnetism and that gives us the opportunity to gather many people working on Magnetism from many different countries. Besides the conference, we are also organizing a small school on magnetism oriented to under-graduate, master’s and doctoral students, postdocs and non-experts in magnetism or other related fields.
The school lecturers and topics are as follows:
Roberto Zysler: Magnetism in Nanostructured Systems. Argentina. 6 hours.
Fernando Machado: Magnetotransport Properties in Magnetic Materials. Brazil. 6 hours.
German Pérez & Jean-Marc Greneche: Mossbauer Effect in Magnetism. Colombia & France. 6 hours.
Razvan Caracas & Aldo Romero: Density Functional Theory in Magnetism. France & Mexico. 6 hours.
The considered invited speakers are as follows:
Carlos A. Ramos, Argentina.
Francisco Sánchez, Argentina.
Antonio Azevedo, Brazil.
Flavio Garcia, Brazil.
Marcelo Knobel, Brazil.
Mario Baibich, Brazil.
Miguel A. Novak, Brazil.
Nivaldo Lucio Speziali, Brazil
Paulo C. Morais, Brazil.
Rosa B. Scorzelli, Brazil.
Sergio M. Rezende, Brazil
Miguel Kiwi, Chile.
Jean-Marc Greneche, France
Razvan Caracas, France
Roberto Escudero, Mexico.
Andreas Berger, Spain.

Ale Lukaszew, USA.
Lisa Tauxe, USA.
To be confirmed

Bruce Davidson, Italy.
Sergio O. Valenzuela, Spain.
David Landau, USA.
Marcelo Jaime, USA.
While for the participation of the school, it is not necessary to submit any contribution, for the workshop, we ask you to submit one as a poster or an oral presentation. Proceedings will be published in a recognized international journal. While the level of the school will be on the basis of a graduate student, the conference will be quite related to experts, even though we have asked the invited speakers to take note on the number of students that will be participating.
