School Scopes and Goals

Spin, charge and heat transport in nanostructures have recently attracted a considerable interest due to their potential for nonvolatile magnetic random-access memories, sensors and novel ways to generate electric current or changes in magnetic states using locally directed heat flow.
Besides, magnetic nanoparticles for biomedical applications have also become a central issue of nanomagnetism. Finally, fundamental aspects of non-equilibrium combined spin, charge and heat transport in magnetic and nonmagnetic devices are one of the central issues on the current research.
The goal of the INC 2015 School is to introduce the early stage researchers on Master, Doctorate and Posdoc level both from Spanish, European / non EU institutions in new directions in spintronics and nanomagnetism, a quickly developing field of the research with both fundamental and applied interest and potential.
