 Materials Science Engineering - Young Researcher meet Professionals

At the biennial International Conference "Materials Science Engineering (MSE 2014)" organised by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde in Darmstadt from 23 - 25 September 2014.

Fernando Palacio will Chair with Luis Carlos the following symposium session:

A07 - Materials for Thermometry in the Nanoscale

The Symposium is open to contributions in thermometry and thermal conductivity with space resolution in the submicron scale although others close to these criteria could also be acceptable. The symposium is interested in any experimental approach aimed to measure thermal properties within the above resolution conditions, including luminescent, non-luminescent, near-field or biological methods among others. It is intended to be an occasion for discussion with the community in order to discover directions, priorities and opportunities. 

Benedetta Casu will Chair the following symposium session:

Organic- and Molecular based Magnets 

The Symposium is open to contributions on organic-based magnets, including metal-free magnets, concerning all theoretical and experimental aspects related to interfaces, surfaces, and devices. It is intended to be an occasion to discuss with the community to discover directions, priorities and opportunities.

Although the editor will make every effort to surf journals for recent publications we would like to take this opportunity to remind all EIMM members to send their references highlights and news to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  It is in the interest of all of us to spread and diffuse EIMM results in molecular magnetism and make the newsletter an important information reference point. The conditions for an important reference to be entitled as a highlight are the relevance of the contribution and a suggestion coming from an author explaining the contribution value, a brief description and a related image.
