T he International Conference on Magnetic Materials and Applications (ICMAGMA - 2018), is being jointly organized by the National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER), Bhubaneswar and the Magnetics Society of India (MSI) during 9-13 December, 2018 at NISER, Bhubaneswar, INDIA. The objective of the conference is to provide an ideal platform for all those pursuing careers in magnetism, magnetic materials and applications to come together, discuss, disseminate and assess the recent developments in the area of magnetism. In this endeavour, the MSI has been fulfilling its mandate to spread awareness among the young researchers, professors, scientists and technologists on the advancements in magnetism. In the recent past, the Society has been conducting National / International Conferences as an annual event, by joining hands with academic institutes.
National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER), Bhubaneswar, is a research institution funded by the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Govt. of India. NISER is affiliated to Homi Bhabha National Institute (HBNI), Mumbai, a deemed research university. The main aim of NISER is to train and nurture motivated world class researchers who will take up challenging research and teaching assignments in universities, research laboratories, and industries. This institute is dedicated to pursue cutting edge research along with both undergraduate and graduate education. It offers a five-year integrated M.Sc., integrated M.Sc.-Ph.D. and Ph.D. degrees in basic sciences. NISER campus is situated across ~300 acres of land, in Jatni, Khurda, Odisha (25 kms from Bhubaneswar airport). Khurda Road railway junction is in the immediate vicinity (~3 kms) of the institute.
School of Physical Sciences (SPS) of NISER is in pursuit of excellence in research and teaching. It is engaged in very active research in the frontier areas. Physics of the macro world and micro world are being vigorously explored. The School offers the integrated M.Sc., integrated M.Sc.-Ph.D. and Ph.D. programme in Physics to highly motivated students. The research areas of SPS are widespread in the fields of magnetic materials, multiferroics, spintronics, dielectrics, nanofabrication and photonics, solid state ionic, spectroscopy and transport studies, nonlinear optics and semiconductor lasers, ultra-cold atoms & quantum optics, statistical mechanics, high energy physics, string theory, atomic physics, quantum field theory, quantum information, mesoscopic superconductivity, etc.
Magnetics Society of India is a registered professional body that came into existence in 1973 with its office located in DMRL Hyderabad. The main objective of MSI, among several others, is to bring together all those who work in the field of magnetics, to a common forum for dissemination of technical information, sharing of technical facilities, assessing the technical needs of industries and promoting a strong interaction among academicians, technocrats and entrepreneurs. Currently, the society derives its strength from nearly 60 Patron members (from companies) and about 550 Life members.
