AVS MAGNETIC INTERFACES AND NANOSTRUCTURES
DIVISION
AVS 50th International Symposium of the American
Vacuum Society
November 2-7, 2003, Baltimore, MD

The Magnetic Interfaces and Nanostructures Division (MI) has planned an exciting and comprehensive technical program for the 50th International Symposium of the AVS. The program highlights recent scientific results and technological challenges in the areas of magnetic / spintronic materials, characterization, and devices. Nascent device technologies, new materials such as ferromagnetic semiconductors, and measurement techniques will be covered by invited speakers and contributed presentations in the MI sessions, several of which will be listed jointly with Semiconductors, Thin Films, and Nanoscale Science. In addition, the AVS will host a number of special events in celebration of the 50th anniversary Symposium
** Student travel assistance is available - see the AVS web site!

We invite your participation and abstract submission.Visit the AVS web site for a complete listing of the program and submission instructions: http://www.avs.org/call/ Please see the MI web site for further information on the Leo Falicov Award: http://divisions.avs.org/min/

Conference announcement 2

This conference annually brings together scientists and engineers interested in recent developments in all branches of fundamental and applied magnetism. Emphasis is placed on experimental and theoretical research in magnetism, the properties and synthesis of new magnetic materials, and advances in magnetic technology. The Program consists of invited and contributed papers. Abstract booklets will be made available at the Conference, and Proceedings will be published in the Journal of Applied Physics and the IEEE Transactions on Magnetics.

4th International Symposium
on Metallic Multilayers

(MML '04)

When: June 7 - 11, 2004
Where: National Institute of Standards and Technology,
Boulder, Colorado, USA

We wish to inform you of the Metallic Multilayers Symposium to be held in Boulder, Colorado, in June 2004 (MML '04). This upcoming meeting continues the tradition of giving scientists a single-session venue for the presentation of outstanding, cutting-edge research in a relaxed, picturesque setting. Past conferences were held in Kyoto 1992, Cambridge 1995, Vancouver 1998, and Aachen 2001. MML '04 will be held on the campus of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Topics for the conference include both fundamental and applied aspects of magnetic metallic multilayers. The subject matter spans the range from devices to film properties; from spin injection into semiconductors to spin-dependent tunneling; from magnetization dynamics to exchange bias; from magnetic recording media to patterned structures.. to name just a few exciting topics of research. Please mark your calendars, and we look forward to seeing you in Boulder in 2004!

Second Seeheim Conference on Magnetism
Seeheim, Germany
June 27- July 1, 2004

SCM is a series of Conferences held every three years under the auspices of the Darmstadt University of Technology. Scientists from 36 countries attended the last Seeheim Conference on Magnetism in 2001. The conference covers the latest developments in the magnetism of nanostructured materials, surfaces, interfaces and nanoparticles.

The location is Lufthansa Training Centre Seeheim. The idyllic climatic resort of Seeheim is situated 43 km south of Frankfurt Airport. The Training Centre is embedded in the Odenwald forest overlooking the Rhine river valley. Here the participants of SCM will find a quiet, natural country environment with everything it takes for concentrated discussions.
