School of Magnetism 2023

The 6th Italian School on Magnetism continues the series of highly successful schools promoted by the Italian Association for Magnetism (AIMagn).

This edition is titled

Information processing in spin-based systems

and will take place in Milano, on June 6th – 9th, 2023

The main topics covered by the school are:

  • Unconventional and spin waves computing (WC)
  • Spin orbitronics (SO)
  • Quantum Computing (QC)

The school will offer a broad introduction to each topic followed by lectures on fundamental aspects, experimental techniques, simulation tools, and cutting-edge applications. The general aim is to offer an overview of basics and more advanced (and recent) trends in applying spin-based and quantum systems to information processing, fields of magnetism that are expected to be game changers in the following years.

The edition 2023 is organized by the Department of Physics of Politecnico di Milano and will be held in the main campus (piazza Leonardo da Vinci 32, 20133 Milano).

The school targets Italian and international graduate students, Ph.D. students, post-doc, and young researchers. Students are invited to prepare a poster to present their scientific activity. More information will appear soon. AIMagn will grant awards (€ 150 each) for the three best posters presented at the School.
