The courses will therefore cover all aspects of SpinW (introduction to magnetic structures and linear spin wave theory, handling complex magnetic structures, symmetry analysis, fitting inelastic neutron scattering data, etc.); and Horace (planning an experiment, data visualisation and corrections, simulations, fitting, and more).

The course will be run at the ISIS neutron source, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Didcot, UK from Monday 30thJanuary to Friday 3rd February 2017 and is free to attend. For further information and registration please visit

14-16 December, University of York

Aimed at new postgraduate research students and those more experienced in research but new to magnetism, this three day school will provide training in the basic principles of magnetism and magnetics and an introduction to theory and modelling, experimental techniques, and metrology. It will also provide an excellent opportunity for participants to meet other members of the UK magnetism community.

The first two days of the school will consist of lectures covering topics ranging from fundamental magnetism to advanced experimental techniques similar to the format of previous Winter Schools. There will be a third day devoted to a hands-on tutorial on Vampire, a package which aims to make the atomistic modelling of magnetic materials accessible to all. We hope this will be very useful for all students in broadening horizons, and really encourage students to attend all three days.

The organisers kindly acknowledge support from the IoP Magnetism Group, the UK & NI Chapter of the IEEE Magnetics Society (student travel) and the Collaborative Computational Project on Computational Magnetism (EPSRC funded).

SPR-KKR Hands On course 2016

Daresbury Laboratory, 14-17 November 2016

The aim of the course is to introduce theoreticians as well as experimentalists into the KKR bandstructure method and its use to calculate various electronic and magnetic properties of magnetic solids (see also the Ψk highlight

Emphasis will be put on the fully relativistic formulation, on the implementation of clusters, surfaces and ordered as well as disordered solids, on linear response phenomena and on the calculation of spectroscopic processes and magnetic properties. In addition to the general features of the code, particular focus of the course will be on calculation of magnetic properties, such as exchange couplings and magnetic anisotropies, as well as applications to angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) experiments based on a one step model will be the focus of this course.

To understand and comprehend the formal background and technical details of the KKR method several lectures on corresponding topics will be given by our speakers. For direct applications the first sessions will be devoted to introduce the Munich SPR-KKR program package, including its graphical user interface called xband. The participants will individually work with the various calculation possibilities of SPR-KKR while being guided by tutors. These sessions are meant in particular to introduce the field to inexperienced users, but also more adapted users will have the opportunity to discuss individual problems with the tutors and authors of SPR-KKR.

The course will be held at Daresbury Laboratory in collaboration with the COST Action EUSpec "Modern Tools for Spectroscopy on Advanced Materials: a European Modelling Platform" ( as well as the UK collaborative computational projects CCP9 ( and CCP-mag (http:// There will be a small fee of £50 for the course.

The Joint European Magnetic Symposia (JEMS) combine to form the most important and comprehensive conference on magnetism in Europe.

The Joint European Magnetics Symposia (JEMS) has evolved over the last 15 years into a premier scientific forum for presenting the latest cutting edge developments in magnetism and magnetic materials research. The conference has a breadth of topics ranging from the fundamental to the applied, and exemplifying the diversity of approach inherent to the European context. Topics range across all areas of current interest and include strongly correlated systems, materials for energy and biomedical applications, spintronics, ultrafast optical switching, chiral spin materials and magnonics.

The structure of the conference ensures that all participants can enjoy plenary and semi-plenary speakers from around the world, representing leading efforts at the frontiers of topical areas. Attendees are encouraged to contribute to specialised symposia through talks and poster sessions devoted to their specific research topics.

Glasgow has a rich and proud history in the subject of magnetism. The city hosted the pioneering research of Lord Kelvin and John Kerr, and has brought the same spirit of innovation and ingenuity to many other aspects of science and engineering, truly one of the cradles of the industrial revolution. Culturally, the city is a centre for Scottish arts with a thriving music scene, innovative artistic community, and a richly diverse centre. Moreover, the city serves as a gateway to the Scottish Highlands-- some of the world's most enchanting and magical landscapes. We cordially invite participants to take the opportunity to explore both the city and country.

Plenary speakers
- Vincent Cros (CNRS/Thales)
- Burkard Hillebrands (TU Kaiserslautern)
- Jordan Katine (HGST)
- Hideo Ohno (Tohoku University)
- Nicola Spaldin (ETH Zurich)
