Conference announcement 2

First Call for papers

The conference “Moscow International Symposium on Magnetism” (MISM) was held in Moscow State University in 2000 and 2002. Last time more than 400 scientists from USA, Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Spain, The Netherlands, Brazil, Poland, Turkey, Czech, Japan, Korea, Russia and Former Soviet Republics participated in MISM-2002. Proceedings of MISM-2002 were published in Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials, vol.258-259, 2003. Taking into account the success of these meetings and numerous requests of participants the International Advisory Committee decided to organize MISM on regular basis, every three years. The MISM is the largest international conference on magnetism, which takes place in Russia. This time the Organizing Committee decided to focus on the most actual topics of modern magnetism and to strictly limit the total number of participants. Besides of plenary talks of tutorial character and invited talks of leading scientists the only original and top-level contributions will be considered by the Program Committee. The Organizers have very restricted funding and cannot support participants, including the members of International Advisory Committee, plenary and invited speakers but we will try to do our best to arrange useful, pleasant and not expensive stay in Moscow.

8th International Symposium on Magnetic Suspension Technology
September 26 - 28, 2005,
Dresden, Germany


Dear Colleague,

we are pleased to announce the 8th International Symposium on Magnetic  Suspension Technology, ISMST-8. The symposium will be held from September 26  - 28, 2005 in Dresden, Germany. It will bring together experts from all over  the world to present and to discuss the latest developments in magnetic  suspension technology. The ISMST-8 will cover all areas of magnetic  suspension by actively controlled and superconducting, passive magnetic  bearings including the related magnetic and superconducting materials. The  topics addressed are such promising applications as flywheels for the energy storage and magnetically levitated transportations systems, but include also  other applications of magnetic bearings, e.g. in electric machines, control  and guiding systems as well as modelling.

Important dates to remember:
    -    February 14, 2005 : On-line Abstract Submission Open
    -    March 1, 2005 : Deadline for On-line Abstract Submission
    -    May 31, 2005: Deadline for Advanced Registration

We are looking forward to hosting you in Dresden at ISMST-8.
