The 10th Joint Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (MMM)/Intermag Conference will be held at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland from Sunday, January 7 through Thursday, January 11, 2007. Members of the international scientific and engineering communities interested in recent developments in magnetism and associated technologies are invited to attend the Conference and contribute to its technical sessions.
SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE: This Conference will include all basic and applied science and technology related to the field of magnetism. The technical subject categories for the Conference are located at the end of this Call.
PROGRAM: The program will consist of invited and contributed papers falling broadly within the scope of the categories listed at the end of this Call.
PUBLICATION: The Proceedings of the Conference will be published in June 2007 as special issues of the Journal of Applied Physics and IEEE Transactions on Magnetics. Entire sessions will be assigned to one or the other of these publications by the Program Committee.
EXHIBITS: An exhibition of related services, equipment, materials, software, technical journals and books will be held as a part of the 2007 Joint MMM/Intermag Conference. Individuals and organizations who are interested in purchasing booth space should contact Roseann Kuryla, Exhibits Coordinator at Courtesy Associates at: email:firstname.lastname@example.org;
REGISTRATION: Advance Conference Registration will be available starting October 1, 2006.
VISA REQUIREMENTS FOR ENTRY INTO THE USA: Citizens of other countries must carry a valid passport and visa to enter the USA. Foreign participants should contact the United States Embassy, Consulate, or Office of Tourism in their home country AS SOON AS OSSIBLE to determine their particular visa requirements.

Nano and Giga Challenges in Electronics and Photonics
Microelectronics technologies have reached a new stage in their development: the latest miniaturization of electronic devices is approaching atomic dimensions, interconnect bottlenecks are limiting circuit speeds, new materials are being introduced into microelectronics manufacture at an unprecedented rate, and alternative technologies to mainstream CMOS are being considered. As a marriage of today's micro-, tomorrow's nano- and future molecular electronics this series of conferences on Nano and Giga Challenges in Microelectronics (NGCM) is being launched. Following the first successful forums in Moscow, Russia (NGCM2002) and in Krakow, Poland (NGCM2004) the third meeting will be held in Phoenix, Arizona in 2007 hosted by Arizona State University in cooperation with Nano & Giga Solutions and other local, national and international organizations, Universities, research centers, companies and governmental agencies.
GIGAntic challenges for the continuing growth of information technologies beyond the fundamental physical limits in scaling electronic devices to NANO dimension has sparked an unprecedented level of interdisciplinary and international cooperation between industrial and academic researchers, companies - IT market rivals, and countries, including former political and military rivals. The next forum in Phoenix, Arizona, invites academic and industrial researchers to present tutorial, expository and original research papers dedicated to the scientific and advanced technologically problems related to the ultimate merge of micro- and nanoelectronics and photonics in specific areas, such as atomic scale materials design: theory and experiment; bio- and molecular electronics and photonics; high frequency electronics; fabrication of nanodevices; magnetic materials and spintronics; materials and processes for integrated and subwave optoelectronics; nanoCMOS: new materials for FETs and other devices; nanoelectronics system architecture; nano optics and lasers; non-silicon materials and devices; quantum effects in devices.
2007 MRS Spring Meeting
The 2007 MRS Spring Meeting will feature 36 technical symposia in five topical clusters, an international exhibit highlighting products and services of interest to the materials community, and much more.
The symposia are grouped into the following topical clusters:
