Joint science symposium set for Yekaterinburg World Trade Centre

The 11th joint International Symposium on Ferroic Domains and Micro- to Nanoscopic Structures and the Russia/CIS/Baltic/Japan Symposium on Ferroelectricity will be held from Aug. 21 through Aug. 25 at the Yekaterinburg World Trade Centre.

The agenda includes plenary talks, oral presentations, two poster sessions, tutorials for students and young scientists, and exhibitions of nanotechnological equipment. Additionally, leading experts from all over the world are expected to participate.

The ISFD symposium, which began in 1989, discusses various issues concerning ferroics and mesoscopic structures and, more recently, nanoscopic structures. The main issues that are covered include static domain structures, domain kinetics during polarization reversal, domain wall dynamics, domains in thin films, polar nanoregions and nanodomains, among other topics.

The RCBJSF, which began in 1976, provides multiple discussions and first-hand updates on the most noteworthy aspects of ferroelectricity and brings together Japanese, Russian, CIS and Baltic scientists.

The early deadline for registration is March 1 and the close of registration is May 1.
