In Latin America, there is a large number of research groups in physics, chemistry, and material sciences working in superconductivity and magnetism. The conference aims to bring together these groups and individual researchers in order to exchange knowledge and experiences, encouraging the establishment of scientific networks for collaborations. There will be invited talks and oral presentations given by physicists, chemists, materials scientists and engineers. Among the invited speakers are renowned researchers from Latin America, India and Europe.
The conference topics include theory, materials and applications. One of the main topics of the conference will be the interplay of superconductivity and magnetism with the aim of analyzing what is being done in the region and attract the attention of more scientists from Latin America to work in this field. Phase diagrams of cuprates, iron pnictides, heavy fermions, and other materials will be a significant part of the conference program.
The participation of young scientists is one of the most important objectives in the realization of this event. For this purpose, research group leaders will be invited to participate with their students and postdocs. Young scientists will interact with well-known senior scientists from around the world. A significant part of the oral presentations and a few invited talks will be assigned to junior scientists.
