The tremendous publication record during the last 20 years shows that Ferromagnetic Shape Memory Alloys (FSMAs) may be counted as a well-established interdisciplinary research field. The first International Conference on FSMAs (ICFSMA '07) launched successfully in Kolkata, India, evoked a general interest in placing such a forum on a regular basics. The second conference in Bilbao (ICFSMA '09) established the ICFSMA as the key conference in the field, covering all aspects of magnetic shape memory alloys. The third conference in Dresden (ICFSMA '11) proudly hosted 120 participants again demonstrating FSMAs as a field in its own right.
The aim of the conference is to generate an overview of world-wide Research and Development in the field of magnetic shape memory alloys and related phenomena. Emphasis will be given to fundamental studies and the relevance of FSMAs in emerging technologies. ICFSMA '13 provides an excellent opportunity to bring together scientists and engineers from universities, research institutes and industry. They will present and discuss their most recent results covering both fundamental and applied aspects of Ferromagnetic Shape Memory Alloys. The Hotel Riverside at the Boise River and the stunning nature of the Gem State Idaho provide an inspiring environment for developing new ideas, forging collaborations, meeting old and making new friends.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Boise in June, 2013.
This conference will:
Provide participants with an overview to the worldwide FSMA research from magnetomechanics to more recently discovered properties and phenomena including thin films and micro-systems, composites and constructs (including foams and mats), and caloric effects (including magnetocaloric and barocaloric effects).
Put emphasis on introducing the most current research, and enabling conversation.
Promote research on fundamental and applied aspects of FSMAs to advance use of this multifunctional material between potential academic and industry partners.
Use modeling and simulation from atomic to microscale to address theory, structure, and magnetism.
Basic phenomena and theory
Structure and magnetic properties
Thin films and microsystems
Composites, foams/constructs and novel materials
Modeling and simulation from the atomic to the micro scale
Processing and application
