are invited to attend the Conference and contribute to its technical
SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE:
This Conference will include all basic and applied science and
technology related to the field of magnetism. The technical subject
categories for the Conference are located below.
Because of the need to convey information effectively with colleagues
as well as a continued increase in the number of submitted abstracts
in recent years, authors should make an effort to present their
work in the best possible light. Please keep in mind the following
abstract acceptance criteria used by the Program Committee:
- The research must be about magnetism,
magnetic materials, or magnetism-related technology.
- The work must be original and significant.
Abstracts that describe incremental advances over previously presented
work will be rejected.
- The work must be substantially complete.
Abstracts that do not specifically refer to new results or are
largely conceptual will be rejected.
- In the interest of allowing as many
groups as possible to present their work, groups or individuals
considering the submission of many similar abstracts should, whenever
possible, combine related work.
- The abstract must be in understandable
English. If necessary, have a native English speaker edit your
abstract before submission.
The abstracts must be submitted
prior to the July 19, 2000 deadline. This deadline will be strictly
observed. Please submit an abstract Ovide support NLY
if you expect to register at the Conference WITHOUT financial
support from the Conference. The Conference does NOT profor
any contributed papers. In addition, the presenting author MUST
be a registrant
The program will consist of invited
and contributed papers falling broadly within the scope of the categories
listed on the back page. Some of the invited papers will be tutorial
in nature, while others will review recent work in specialized fields.
