Report on the 10th International Conference on Magnetic and Superconducting Materials (MSM17)

September 18-21, 2017

Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran

Summary: There were about 50 lectures and about 100 poster presentations with over 170 participants. Twelve eminent international scientists delivered 24 plenary and research lectures. Participants from Russia, Georgia, Iraq, Poland, Germany, Switzerland, Tunisia, China, Canada, UK, France, India, USA, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Iran attended this conference.

The lecture of Nobel Laureate Prof. K. Von Klitzing was highly appreciated by the participants. One important event in the conference was the recognition given to young scientists and to poster presentations. Young Researcher Awards were given to two young researchers one in magnetism and the other in superconductivity and four Best Poster Awards to two each in magnetism and superconductivity. The Awards Committee also awarded one distinction to a highly accomplished young scientist.

Two highly regarded invited speakers, Prof. Lu Yu from Chinese Academy of Sciences and Prof. Michael Farle from University of Duisburg, Essen, Germany accepted to become Adjunct Professors of the Department of Physics at Sharif University of Technology starting from January 2018.

COMSTECH was one of the supporters of the conference.
