About the Conference

Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati (IITG) and Magnetics Society of India (MSI) welcome you to Guwahati, (Assam), the gateway to North-eastern India, which is the venue for the "International conference on Magnetic Materials and Applications (MagMA-2013)".

The objective of the conference is to bring researchers and technocrats from all over the world to a common gathering and share the recent developments taking place in the subject of magnetism, magnetic materials and their applications. In this endeavour, MSI, which was established in 1973 as a national forum, joins hands with IITG to stage this conference for promoting a stronger interaction between the national and international scientific communities engaged in magnetism and related areas of research.

The conference is planned to provide an attractive platform for the delegates from academia, research institutes / laboratories and industries to hear, witness and assimilate the advances occurring in a cross section of subject areas ranging from fundamental aspects of magnetism to the ever growing applied aspects of magnetic materials. MagMA-2013 would host a range of plenary sessions, invited talks, oral and poster presentations, and exhibition to capture the attention of the people working in diversified areas of magnetism.
