The 21st International Workshop on Rare-Earth Permanent Magnets and their Applications [REPM’10], will be held in Bled, Slovenia, from 29 August to 2 September 2010, continuing the series of meetings initiated by K. J. Strnat.
“It is an honour for the Slovenian scientists involved in the field of magnetism and magnetic materials, as well as the country’s producers of permanent magnets, that Slovenia was chosen to host this Rare-Earth Magnets Workshop. The research and development in this field, which started in the US, is now taking place all over the world.” said Professor Spomenka Kobe of the Jozef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana, Slovenia and Chair of REPM’10.
This highly successful Workshop series has been held over the years on five continents and in ten countries. The biennial event is organized under the auspices of academic and industrial partners working on the development and applications of permanent magnets based on rare earths and transition metals, and more recently on other permanent magnet materials.
“We wish to welcome scientists, researchers and producers working in the dynamic area of permanent magnets to participate in the 21st International Workshop on Rare-Earth Permanent Magnets and their Applications in 2010. We are also delighted and honoured that Prof. George Hadjipanayis [of the University of Delaware] has accepted an invitation to be the Workshop’s Keynote Speaker.” Professor Kobe said.
Co-chairing the event is Dr. Boris Saje of Kolektor Group d.o.o., Idrija, Slovenia.
The REPM Workshops are a pretty unique fixture on the permanent magnets calendar and are highly recommended! For more details, visit the Workshop Web site at http://nano.ijs.si/repm10.htm.
