CEDENNA organizes numerous outreach activities, including conferences, talks, competitions, schools, seminars and exhibitions, to present its work to the general community, generating greater interest in science among the youth of our country.
With the aim of bringing together students from all over Chile with common interest in the area of magnetism, the Millennium Nucleus in this discipline is organizing the Second School on Magnetism, which will take place from August 30 to September 1 2010 at the National and International Events Center of the Universidad de Santiago de Chile.
The meeting, supported by the Center for the Development of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (CEDENNA), seeks to inform students about the basic concepts of magnetism and themes related to current research.
Another objective of the Magnetism School is to provide the opportunity through the interactions at the conferences programmed for the event to link students and researchers from different Chilean universities who do research on magnetism.
Among the invited researchers are Antonio Azevedo, from the Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, Brazil; Eugenio Coronado, from the Universidad de Valencia, Spain; Iván Schuller, from the University of California, the United States and José d’Albuquerque e Castro, from the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, among other academics.
Magnetism is one of the oldest disciplines known by man and one of the most widely used phenomena in contemporary technology. It is also in the vanguard in the era of nanotechnology.
