“When you engage with people, you build your own insight into what’s being discussed. Someone else’s understanding complements yours, and together you start to weave an informed interpretation. You tinker until you can move on.”
- Marcia Conner, Author of the book, “The New Social Learning”
In keeping with the spirit of this quotation, the first Boston Regional Nanomagnetism Workshop (RNW) was held in Boston on April 4th 2014. The one-day event was co-sponsored by the College of Engineering of Northeastern University and the Boston Chapter of the IEEE Magnetics Society. The primary objective of this event was to facilitate exchange of ideas and active collaborations between research groups working in the field of fundamental and applied magnetism in the Greater Boston area. The forum consisted of a series of oral talks and poster presentations by graduate students and post-doctoral research associates from local universities namely Northeastern University, Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The key-note speech for the event was given by IEEE Magnetics Society 2014 Distinguished Lecturer, Prof. Hans-Benjamin Braun of University College Dublin, Ireland. The title of Prof. Braun’s talk: “Topological Effects in Nanomagnetism: From Perpendicular Recording to Monopoles”. Abstracts of the talks and posters presented at the Workshop are available in Abstract Book. Photographs of the event may be viewed using the link given below.
