Magnetic Frontiers: Topological Insulators, Nancy, France on 18-21 September 2017



Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the program and organising committees, it is our great pleasure to announce Magnetic Frontiers: Topological Insulators. This is the 1st event in the sequence of mall topical conferences under a general title Magnetic Frontiers, which are technically sponsored by the IEEE Magnetics Society and IEEE Magnetics Letters. 

Magnetic Frontiers is the premier topical conference on emerging aspects of fundamental and applied magnetism. The forum provides a range of plenary and invited talks delivered by key researchers in the field as well as oral and poster presentations. As there will be a small number of participants (about 80 people), the conference provides a unique environment for researchers to communicate and discuss the latest developments in magnetism with the leading scientists. We would like to cordially invite you to attend the conference, actively participate in its technical sessions, and contribute to the success of this conference series.

The first conference in the series is related to the emerging topic of Topological Insulators –unique electronic materials that additionally to a bulk band gap like in an ordinary insulator have protected conducting states on their edge or surface that are possible due to the combination of spin-orbit interactions and time-reversal symmetry. The conference will cover the following topics: 

  • Materials and interface design
  • Characterisation technics
  • Electronic transport in topological materials
  • Theory and modelling of topological materials
  • Prospective for applications 


Best regards, 


  Olga Kazakova                              Stéphane Mangin
