The International Conference on Magnetism (ICM) belongs to a series of Conferences, held once every three years, under the auspices of the International Union for Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP). The most recent conferences were held in Recife (2000), Cairns (1997), Warsaw (1994), Edinburgh (1991), Paris (1988) and San Francisco (1985). In the year 2003, ICM will be held in Roma, Italy, from Sunday, July 27 through Friday, August 1. ICM 2003 will also include the Symposium on Strongly Correlated Electron Systems (SCES 2003).

All information about the conference, accommodation and touring in Italy can be found at

http://www.icm2003.mlib.cnr.it

SCOPE:ICM 2003 has been programmed to provide a forum for the international magnetism community to discuss new concepts, properties and developments in all branches of fundamental and applied magnetism, as well as research on magnetic materials and their applications. Selected contributed oral and poster presentations are planned, together with plenary lectures, invited talks and symposia.

ICM 2003 will be conducted in accordance with IUPAP principles regarding the free circulation of scientists for international purposes. In particular, no bona fide scientist will be excluded from participation on the grounds of origin, nationality, or political reasons unrelated to science.

REGISTRATION FEES:The registration fees, valid only before the registration deadline of May 15, 2003, are:

Full registration: check or bank transfer - EURO 480; credit card - EURO 505
Students/retired: check or bank transfer - EURO 320; credit card - EURO 335

Full registration fee includes Abstracts and Conference Program booklets, Conference Proceedings, participant kit, Welcome Party, coffee breaks. After May 15, only on-site registration will be accepted, with an extra charge of 25%. Thus, registering in advance is strongly recommended if you want to save time and money and queuing up at the registration desk. On the other hand, advanced registration enables you to have all your Conference materials ready for you when arriving on site. In addition, for those booking the Hotel through the Conference Organization, the registration material will be delivered to the hotel reception desk on arrival. Note also that only cash (Euro) or credit card payment will be accepted for on-site registration. There will be an exchange bureau in the Conference building.

PROCEEDINGS: The proceedings of ICM 2003 will be published by Elsevier's Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials. Only full pay registrants will receive a free copy of the Proceedings. According to arrangements with Elsevier, they will also receive a password to allow free electronic access to the proceedings during one year. As in previous ICM conferences, only one contributed paper per registered participant will be published in the proceedings. This allows us to keep within the limit set by the Publisher. Only the papers presented at the Conference and accepted by the referees will be published. The deadline for the manuscript submission is April 15, 2003. Instructions for manuscript preparation will be sent with the notification of abstract acceptance.

CONFERENCE SITE: The Conference will be held at the Palazzo dei Congressi in Roma, presently the largest Conference Center in Roma, equipped with all the facilities required for large conferences. It is the main building of the splendid complex of the Universal Exhibition of Roma, in the modern EUR district. It can be reached from the Leonardo da Vinci Airport in only 20 minutes by car and it is linked to the city by a number of buses and underground trains (Metro). Roma, the Eternal City, has always attracted tourists from all over the world for its beauty and charm, its unforgettable monuments, architecture and invaluable arts which are a fascinating reminder of the past. The temperatures in Roma range from 28 to 35 degrees Celsius in late July and rarely rains. A large number of Romans go on vacation in this period, therefore the most popular tourist attractions, museums, shops and galleries are less crowded. Obviously the Congress Center, as well as most indoor cultural facilities, restaurants and shops are air conditioned.

TRANSPORTATION AND ACCOMMODATION: Roma can be reached through many air routes. Most scheduled airlines have daily flights to Roma. Several airlines offer promotional fares to Roma. Train connections from the European cities are also very good. If you plan traveling in Europe, Roma is a very convenient base since any other European city can be reached within an hour or two by air.

Roma has an overall accommodation capacity of about 30,000 rooms (single, double or suites). Some 4 star hotels (e.g. Sheraton, the Conference Hotel) are close to the Conference site. Besides, a large number of fine hotels of different categories near the historical center of Roma and well connected (by Metro) to the Conference site have been booked for Conference participants. Cheaper accommodation can be offered to a limited number of applicants in some of the pilgrim houses in Roma belonging to religious orders or congregations. The official travel agency of the Conference will take care of the Hotel accommodation.

VISA REQUIREMENTS: A valid passport is required for everyone wishing to enter Italy except for European citizens for which a valid Identity card is required. The visa requirement depends on the home Country of citizenship. The ICM 2003 Home Page contains a list of the countries, which have a visa waiver agreement with Italy. Foreign participants are urged to contact the Italian Embassy or Consulate in their home Country as soon as possible to determine their particular visa requirements and to apply well in advance of their departure dates. If you need a personal letter of invitation to attend the Conference, please contact the ICM 2003 secretariat at phone No. +39-06-90672285/360, FAX +39-06-90672470 or E-mail icm2003@mlib.cnr.it, and give your complete mailing address. A signed letter will be then mailed to you. This letter of invitation, however, does not imply an invited talk or waiver of registration fee.

EXHIBITS: During ICM 2003 there will be an area for the exhibition of relevant services, equipment, materials and books. Individuals and organizations interested in exhibiting their products should contact Dr. L. Del Bianco, tel.+390690672338; fax.+390690672470, e-mail lucia.delbianco@mlib.cnr.it

PRE-POST CONFERENCE TOURS AND ACCOMPANYING PERSONS PROGR: The ICM 2003 Home Page contains a description of several tours in Roma (and in the neighborhood) and in Italy that can be booked through the official travel Agency: Triumph Viaggi & Incentive. We hope you will enjoy this opportunity of visiting one of the most beautiful and famous cities in the world and other unforgettable historical and artistic towns of Italy.

CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT 5

Spintech II
International Conference and School
Semiconductor Spintronics and Quantum Information Technology
Brugge (Belgium), Crowne Plaza Hotel
August 4 - 8, 2003
www.sainc.com/spintech2

The use of spins has been an important component in the rapid progress realized in information science and technology in the last decade of the 20th century, in particular within the context of high-density data storage and read out. While such technology has relied exclusively on metallic magnetic systems, recent developments in the physics of spin-dependent phenomena in semiconductors have now opened the door to fundamentally new technological possibilities that harness electronic spin for semiconductor-based spin electronics and quantum computation. It is hence anticipated that the spin degree of freedom will play a crucial role in the development of information technologies with advanced functionality in the 21st century.

Continuing the themes of the SPINTECH I conference (Maui, Hawaii, May 2001), Spintech II will highlight important progress in the following topics:

This summer school and international conference will focus on the areas of semiconductor "spintronics" and quantum information. It has been organized to discuss the possibilities within these emerging fields. The International Conference and School, scheduled to run from August 4 through August 8, 2003, has the dual purpose of providing (1) an international conference exploring the most recent spintronic developments including the utilization of spin for quantum information science, and (2) an intensive two day lecture series for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, focusing on the fundamental aspects of spintronics taught by experts in this field. For organisational reasons the conference preceeds the school. This school and conference will provide graduate and postdoctoral students with a detailed grounding in the fundamental science and technological opportunities, as well as the latest information in these rapidly changing fields.

On behalf of the Spintech II organisers and advisory committee we hope to meet you in Brugge,
Jo De Boeck and Berry Jonker
