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 a common interest in the field of magnetism, the Millennium Nucleus on Magnetism is organizing the Third School for university students, that will take pace October 24 to 25, 2011 in the Salón de Honor of the Technical University Federico Santa María in Valparaíso.
The encounter, supported by the Center for the Development of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, CEDENNA, seeks to expose students to basic concepts about magnetism and current research on the theme.
At the same time, the event aims to join students from different Chilean universities who conduct research into magnetism and link them with researchers working in the area through the opportunities for interaction provided by the conferences programmed for the event.
Among the overseas researchers invited to the event are Andreas Berger, of the CIC nanoGUNE Consolider, Spain; Alejandro Butera, from the Atomic Center Bariloche, Argentina and Alberto Guimaraes, from CBPF in Brazil, among others.
Magnetism is one of the oldest disciplines known to man and at the same time one of the most widely used phenomena in current technology and in the vanguard in the ear of nanotechnology.
The organizers of the event can provide economic assistance for students who want to attend the Third School on Magnetism. To apply students should send a brief letter of support / recommendation of an academic from her/her institution of study together with a registration form prior to September 30, 2011 to: email@example.com
