Invitation


Dear Colleagues,

Time is running fast and ICFSMA, the only world-wide conference about magnetic shape memory, is again here! With now firmly established triennial period it is the sixth conference in row. I am very pleased and honored that I can invite you to Prague, the city of hundreds of spires. I believe that not only spires outside but also inside will inspire us to pursue and provide excellent future of the field.

This, of course, depends only on you and your exiting and stimulating contributions. Although we will have only selected number of invited talks, the main platform consisting from contributed talks and posters, I believe that any contribution, no matter in what format, will be met with interest and friendly atmosphere as it is good practice of this conference. We have great tradition to follow which obliges us to try our best.

I hope you will find Prague inspiring not only at conference venue and in discussion with colleagues but also by being in enchanting city itself.

Looking forward to meeting you at the ICFSMA’19!

Oleg Heczko
Chairman of the conference

Conference scope

The aim of the conference is to generate an overview of world-wide research and
development in the field of magnetic shape memory (MSM) alloys and associated
phenomena. The conference will cover entire line of the theoretical and experimental
research from fundamentals to applications. Particular emphasis will be given to
original studies extended to the related fields and to the practical utility of the
phenomena. By presentation and discussion of the most recent results covering both
fundamental and applied aspects of ferromagnetic shape memory alloys (FSMAs), the
conference will provide on inspiring environment for developing new ideas and
applications, forging collaborations and meeting old and new friends.

Conference topics

  • basic phenomena and theory
  • correlation between magnetic and martensitic transformations
  • strain glass and related phenomena
  • magnetomechanic and caloric properties
  • modelling and simulation from atomic to macro scale
  • new materials and materials design
  • thin films and microsystems
  • foams/constructs and composites
  • processing and applications
