2014 Winter Meeting - Club Español de Magnetismo

The Spanish research on magnetism has a long tradition, dating back to the 10s of the XXth century, with the seminal contributions of Professor Blas Cabrera and his disciples. The school created by Prof. Salvador Velayos and some others in later decades seeded the country of very active groups in the field.

For about a decade, the Spanish Magnetics Club joins together very active research groups along the whole country. One of the objectives of the Club since its foundation was holding specialized courses to form future doctors and researchers in the field, and not less, to enhance an interacting community that can hold in the future synergy an already well established community.

Following the general course which took place in 2007, within the framework of the Summer Courses of the University of Zaragoza in Jaca, and a second one focused on Nanomagnetism, which was held at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory in Braga in 2011, the Club proposes in 2014 a Winter Course on the Frontiers of current research on Magnetism: spintronics, quantum information, new materials and techniques.

The Spanish Magnetics Club is a Sister Society of the IEEE Magnetics Society, to encourage the exchange and dissemination of technical information, and to promote understanding and cooperation between the members of both societies.

The Course will take place at the Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual (http://benasque.org), and is supported by CEMAG, CSIC, and Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual.

IEEE Magnetics Society Grants for the CEMAG Course

The Spanish Chapter of the IEEE Magnetics Society announces scholarships to cover the students fee. To ask for one of those, please fill the form in this webpage


Benasque is a mountain village located 1140 m above sea level, in a valley in the heart of the Pyrenees. The beautiful landscapes and the proximity to large ski resorts make Benasque one of the main tourist sites in the region.

Transportation to the ski center of Cerler will be provided during the mornings. The valley offers many interesting alternatives for those not skiing.
