Lyon, France

Welcome to INTERMAG 2021

Dear Colleagues,

The INTERMAG 2021 Conference was due to be held in Lyon, France, 26-30 April 2021. Very unfortunately, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and associated economic crisis imply that there is a considerable uncertainty about the ability and willingness of our attendees to travel internationally. Owing to this uncertainty, the INTERMAG 2021 Management Committee, with the approval of the IEEE Magnetics Society Conference Executive Committee, has decided to change the conference format from a face-to-face meeting to a virtual one.

Special Conference Events and Sessions

12th MRAM Global Innovation Forum

This Forum will feature ten on-demand invited talks and a live Q&A panel discussion where the speakers will discuss such topics as what we need to do bring MRAM to next level, and what breakthroughs do we need to make MRAM (or spintronics) an integral part of CMOS electronics at advanced nodes?. The launching of volume production of STT-MRAM by major microelectronics companies marks the adoption of this hybrid CMOS/magnetic technology by microelectronics industry. This constitutes a major achievement for spintronics R&D which opens further perspective of spintronic applications. This one-day Forum will give an overview of the present status of industrial MRAM development and discuss the foreseen evolutions.

Meet the Experts

Students and post-doctoral researchers are invited to attend Meet the Experts. This event provides young researchers with the exclusive opportunity to participate in a small-group video discussion (limited to 20 students per expert) and get expert advice on career planning, technical paper writing and publication, job searches and interviews, society involvement, and more. To ensure the integrity of the small-group discussion, space at this event will be limited and advance registration required.

Meet the Employers (Workforce Forum)

This networking event is aimed at bringing together senior graduate students and post-doctoral fellows seeking a Faculty, Postdoc, or Industry position with employers looking for faculty, staff members, or post-doctoral researchers.

Women in Magnetism Networking Event

Expand your professional network! Don’t miss the Virtual Women in Magnetism Networking Event. This is an opportunity to become acquainted with women in the profession and to discuss a range of topics including leadership, work-life balance, and professional development. All students, researchers and retirees are encouraged to attend.

Magnetism as Art Showcase

INTERMAG 2021 will host a Magnetism as Art Showcase to highlight the beauty of magnetism and magnetic materials. Selected submissions will be displayed on the Conference website. Four finalists will be determined by popular vote and of those finalists, one winner will be selected by a panel of judges.

Special session: "Entrepreneurship: Launching a Start-up Company"

This special session will feature three speakers from Europe, USA and Asia, who will share their experience in launching a start-up company.
