The deadline for submitting abstracts to the 8th International Conference on Fine Particle Magnetism (ICFPM), to be held in Perpignan (France) during next June 24-27, has been postponed to April 12.
Content is welcome from areas such as elaboration, characterization, measurements (on single and assembled nanoparticles), theory and modelling ; equilibrium and dynamic properties, surface and interaction effects ; applications (high-frequency, Magnetotransport and magnetocaloric phenomena, biomedicine, etc).
Please visit http://www.promes.cnrs.fr/ICFPM2013 for more news updates and information on keynote and invited speakers, topics, registration, accommodation, social and cultural programme. However, if further information is needed do not hesitate to write to the organizing committee.
We will be very glad to welcome you in Perpignan. We are doing our best to make this conference a successful scientific event and an opportunity for you to visit the area with its magnificent vistas of the Vermeille coast and the Pyrenees mountains.
This introductory course aims at helping students, researchers and engineers having little or no background in magnetism to better understand the physics and working principles of this new class of magnetic memories called MRAMs (Magnetic Random Access Memories) based on magnetic tunnel junctions. These MRAM or STTRAM (Spin-Transfer-Torque RAM) memories are attracting an increasing interest in microelectronics industry. In a recent ITRS (International Roadmap on Semiconductors) report, they have been identified with Redox RAM as one of the two most promising technologies of emerging non-volatile memories allowing scalability to and beyond the 16nm technology node. The courses will be organized during two and a half days. They will cover various aspects of MRAM technology: the basic spintronics phenomena involved in MRAM, the materials, the various categories of MRAM (pros/cons, performances, degree of maturity), the fabrication process, and the perspectives of low power electronic circuits based on this hybrid CMOS/magnetic technology. The courses will be completed by an optional half day of presentation of design tools for the design of hybrid CMOS/MRAM circuits and of lab visit. The conference language will be English.

This meeting brings together physicists and biologists working in the broadly defined field of cell membrane biophysics. Topics covered include membrane structure and dynamics, organization (lateral phase separation and lipid asymmetry), membrane protein structure and dynamics, simulations, and reconstituted systems.
All papers and abstracts should be submitted electronically following the instructions and link at the conference web page. The submission site will open by February 15, 2013 and close on April 15, 2013.
Registration will open on May 20, 2013 and the registration deadline is July 20, 2013.
