Welcome to Highly Frustrated Magnetism 2003
26-30th August 2003, Grenoble, France
Following the success of Highly Frustrated Magnetism Conference in Waterloo, Canada in June 2000
we announce a second international
conference on Highly Frustrated Magnetism. HFM2003 will be held at the
Institut Laue Langevin (ILL)
in Grenoble France, from 26-30th August 2003.
Highly Frustrated Magnetism continues to be a topical dynamic field of study inciting ground
breaking research in many fields from the synthesis of new materials to fundamental questions
in the quantum many body problem.
We plan to welcome around 80 participants to HFM2003 working in all aspects of frustrated
magnetism, with invited and contributed talks and poster sessions from the themes :
situated in the heart of the French Alpes is
by TGV (High speed train), train or highway from Paris and elsewhere.
- New Materials.
- Frustrated quantum systems and low dimensional systems.
- High degeneracy, degeneracy lifting and non-conventional ordering.
- Itinerant frustrated systems.
- He ring exchange and Wigner crystals.
- Recent developments in spin glasses.
- Orbital liquids.
- Spin-lattice coupling.
The Institut Laue Langevin (ILL), one of the key experimental installations
in the development of the field of frustrated magnetism is an ideal venue
for the conference, combining ease of access, scientific interest and agreable
surrounding and allowing a modest registration fee.
Participants will be accomodated, in part in the ILL guest house and in part in
the town of Grenoble.
Cafeteria facilities will be available at the conference site and a conference
dinner will be included in the registration fee.
Looking forward to seeing you in Grenoble,
The organizing committee.
