The international encounter SOLIDS 11 will takes place November 8 to the 13 in San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina, with the aim of brining together researchers, teachers and students from all disciplines oriented to the study of material in its solid state, mainly, but not exclusively, from Chile and Argentina.
The encounter is the continuation of meetings that have taken place in Valparaíso in November of 2009, Huerta Grande, Córdoba in November 2007 and San Carlos de Bariloche in November 2005.
SOLIDS 2011 seeks to promote an environment for discussion and collaboration among different research groups that address the study of solid-state materials from different disciplines. Consequently, far from being a disciplinary encounter, it seeks to promote the participation of physicists, chemists, engineers and all those interested in this fascinating problem, whether from a theoretical or experimental perspective.
The meeting, which has the support of the Millennium Nucleus on Basic and Applied Magnetism of USACH, whose director, Dr. Dora Altbir is a member of the Scientific Committee, takes place in meeting rooms of the Hotel Garden Park, in the city of San Miguel de Tucumán, with the opening event on Tuesday, November 8 at 10:00 am and the closing on Friday November 11 at noon. Ten academics and students who participate in the Magnetism Nucleus and the Centro for the Development of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (CEDENNA) will participate in the event.
The event features 12 plenary conferences and 18 semi-plenary events, as well as providing an important space for a message wall for the participants to contact one another. It is also expected that a panels take place on the use of the facilities at the National Synchrotron Light Laboratory in the Brazil and the Argentine RA-10 project.
The speakers for the plenary and semi-plenary sessions were contacted after the selection by the members of the SOLID 2011 Scientific Committee, taking into account current themes in research in solid-state physics and the aim of representing the major research groups in solid-state physics in the region. The communication wall will be open throughout the meeting.
