4th Joint Annual Meeting, IEEE Magnetics Society and Nanotechnology Council Chicago Chapters

#IEEE #Nanotechnology #Council #Magnetics #Society

Welcome to the 4th Joint Annual Meeting of the IEEE Magnetics Society and IEEE Nanotechnology Council Chicago Chapters, to be held in a hybrid form (in-person plus on Zoom) with in-person venue at Northwestern University on Friday, November 18, 2022. The meeting will provide free breakfast & lunch and face-to-face interaction with the best local Chicago reserachers in Magnetics and Nanotechnology!

The meeting will convene local and international academics, professionals and students with broad interests in magnetics and nanotechnology. The meeting will provide a forum for highlighting the latest advances in magnetism, spintronics, nanotechnology, and nanoelectronics, and will provide opportunities to facilitate networking and collaboration.

There are no Registration Fees, but registration is required.
