SNF Announcements



July 21, 2017 (A392).  The annual German cryogenic workshop on cryogenic components (KRYO 2017) will be held this year in Bad Aibling, Germany, from October 8th to 10th, 2017.  It is being organized under the aegis of Walther-Meissner-Institute, Bavarian Academy of Sciences.

Bad Aibling is a resort town at the picturesque foothills of Alps, south of Munich.  The meeting venue will be the four-star hotel “St. Georg”.


December 22, 2016 (A371). The European Cryogenics Days 2017 will be organized in conjunction with the 2nd International Workshop on Cooling of High-Temperature Superconductor Applications in Karlsruhe, Germany, 13 -15 September 2017. This meeting is preceding the European Conference on Applied Superconductivity (EUCAS) that takes place at CERN, Geneva, September 17-21, 2017.

The meeting is organized by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the Cryogenics Society of Europe (CSE) and the European Society on Applied Superconductivity (ESAS) together with the HEPTech Network and Enterprise Europe Network (EEN).

December 09, 2016 (A369). The 28th International Conference on Low Temperature Physics will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden, from 9 til' 16 August 2017. The conference is now open for registration and a call for abstracts is out. 

Details for registration and the submission of abstracts can be found here:


December 5, 2016 (A366).  On November 28, 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy announced nearly $25 million for 13 projects aimed at advancing technologies for energy-efficient electric motors through applied research and development. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE) Next Generation Electric Machines projects will address the limitations of traditional materials and designs used in electric motor components by cost-effectively enhancing their efficiency, improving their performance, and reducing weight. This effort will support innovative approaches that will significantly improve the technology in industrial electric motors, which use approximately 70 percent of the electricity consumed by U.S. manufacturers and nearly a quarter of all electricity consumed nationally.


October 14, 2016 (A360). The Jan Evetts SUST Award 2017 will be presented at the European Conference on Applied Superconductivity (EUCAS) 2017 in Geneva recognizing The Best Paper published in SUST in 2017 by an Early Career Researcher.

2017 will mark the 30th anniversary of Superconductor Science and Technology (SUST), a journal from IOP Science.  The IOP team and the SUST Editorial Board are dedicated to supporting early career researchers and are delighted to launch The Jan Evetts SUST Award, a new annual early career best SUST paper award named in fond memory of our founding Editor, Professor Jan Evetts.

Entry Criteria, important dates, and deadlines can be found here.


May 27, 2016 (A348U).  The ESAS Winter School on Novel Frontiers in Superconducting Electronics: from Fundamental Concepts and Advanced Materials towards Future Applications will be held from December 12th to17th, 2016, in Pozzuoli (Napoli), Italy. The school is a satellite event of the International Superconductive Electronics Conference (ISEC 2017), which will take place in Sorrento (Italy) the following year and is co-sponsored by IEEE CSC.  This School is complementary to and coordinated with the ESAS Summer School on Superconducting Electronics 2016 (see A345).


August 17, 2016 (A356). The IEEE CSC and ESAS Superconductivity News Forum (global edition) (SNF) invites each plenary and invited speaker at the ASC 2016 to pre-publish her/his manuscript of plenary talk or publish the plenary slide presentation in SNF, if no manuscript was prepared. 


March 22, 2016 (PN4).  Britton Plourde of Syracuse University, NY, USA, Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity (IEEE TASC), was interviewed by APS online Physics on his interest in building quantum computers with superconductors.  That interview was published online in Physics 9, 29 of March 17, 2016 and can be found here.
