On behalf of the organizing committee, it is our honor to invite you to attend the 9th International Conference on Highly Frustrated Magnetism 2018 (HFM 2018) which will be held at the University of California, Davis campus, in Davis, California from the 9th to the 14th of July, 2018. It will also serve as a satellite to the International conference on Magnetism ICM 2018 (July 15 to July 20) in San Francisco, California, allowing participants to coordinate travel to both meetings (if they wish).

This international conference will be a great opportunity for scientists from around the world to share the most recent developments in the study of frustrated magnetism. It will feature presentations reporting on experimental and theoretical studies of magnetic frustration, in all of its manifestations.

This conference follows in the series of HFM 2016 (Taipei, Taiwan), HFM 2014 (Cambridge, UK), HFM 2012 (Hamilton, Canada), HFM 2010 (Baltimore, USA), HFM 2008 (Braunschweig, Germany), HFM 2006 (Osaka, Japan), HFM 2003 (Grenoble, France) and HFM 2000 (Waterloo, Canada).

University of California, Davis campus is located in Davis, California about 15 miles from Sacramento International Airport and about 90 miles from the San Francisco International Airport. Davis is a college town. Besides Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay area, it is also close to the wine country (Napa Valley) in Northern California and not far from major natural resorts at Lake Tahoe and Yosemite National Park.

We look forward to seeing you in Davis in 2018.
