Meeting Description

The 2016 Gordon Research Conference on Multiferroic and Magnetoelectric Materials is the second GRC Meeting presenting the latest developments and advances in the investigation, design, and applications of multifunctional materials with a strong coupling of magnetic and dielectric orders. The conference topics include the synthesis of new multiferroic materials, studies of the fundamental physical mechanisms leading to the coexistence and mutual interaction of magnetism and electrical polarization, the control of multiferroic properties by external electric and magnetic fields as well as pressure, novel magnetoelectric effects in nontrivial topological systems (such as skyrmions), new functionalities of multiferroic domains and domain boundaries, multiferroic effects in thin films and heterostructures, spin-orbit interaction in 5d compounds, utilization of multiferroics and magnetoelectrics for devices and applications, and the theory and modeling of multiferroic properties. The program is designed to cover the broad range of multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials and phenomena with focus on new developments and emerging topics. The meeting will bring together scholars from different scientific disciplines (including physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering, etc.) representing all aspects of multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials, from fundamentals to applications. Invited speakers and poster presenters are encouraged to discuss their unpublished results representing the recent progress and advances as well as defining the next challenges for the future development of the field. The format of the Gordon Research Conference will allow for plenty of opportunities to discuss the latest achievements with the focus on extended discussion sessions after each talk, the presentation of results from all participants in the afternoon poster sessions, and with additional time for informal meetings during the afternoon and evening hours. All participants are encouraged to discuss their most recent (including unpublished) results to kick-start new efforts and establish worldwide collaborations.
