DINEMN - Donostia International Workshop on Energy, Materials and Nanotechnology

Donostia International Workshop on Energy, Materials and Nanotechnology
September 1-4, 2015, San Sebastian-Donostia, Spain

Donostia - San Sebastián

Dear colleague,

It is our great pleasure to announce Donostia International Workshop on Energy, Materials, and Nanotechnology (DINEMN), which will take place in San Sebastian, Spain from 1st till 4th September, 2015. It is our hope that the tradition of holding international scientific events in San Sebastián will continue. During the past 15 years we organized several international conferences, such as Magnetism of Nanophase materials (1998), Recent Research on Novel Magnetic Structures and Their Applications (2000), International Workshop on magnetic wires (2001), Third Joint European Magnetic Symposia, JEMS-2006, International Workshop on magnetic wires (2008), Recent Trends on Nanomagnetism, Spintronics and Applications (RTNSA-2011) and Donosita International Conference on Nanoscaled Magnetism and Applications (DICNMA 2013).

We invite all members of the international scientific community interested in new developments in Energy, Materials, and Nanotechnology to attend and to submit their latest findings to DINEMN 2015. The conference will provide a range of oral and poster presentations, invited talks and symposia, and exhibits reviewing the latest developments in Materials, Energy and Nanotechnology.

Selected (after peer-review) papers from the conference will be published in various ISI and Scopus indexed journals (Physica Status Solidi (a), IEEE Magnetics Letters and Metallurgical and Materials Transactions E). Only one paper per registered participant will be published.

We cordially invite you to attend the conference, actively participate in its technical sessions, and contribute to the continued success of this conference series. Up-to-date information on all aspects of the conference will appear soon on the conference webpage: http://www.dicnma.com/en/index.html.

The site of this conference is San Sebastian, a friendly, cosmopolitan, city on the beach of the Basque Gulf, capital of the Guipúzcoa (Province of the Basque Country, Spain). San Sebastian, nestled between the Coast Mountains and the Basque Gulf, is well known as a resort, for its majestic natural beauty and for its gastronomy. It is frequently ranked as one of the "best cities to live in" and is certainly a beautiful destination to visit. San Sebastian has been selected as the European Capital of Culture 2016. On behalf of the DINEMN organizers, we look forward to seeing you in San Sebastian and to join an exciting and enjoyable conference.
