International French-US Workshop

July 8-12, 2013

University of California, San Diego - Center for Magnetic Recording Reasearch

The aim of this workshop is to gather the scientific and engineering communities in the fast growing field of spintronics and its applications. The workshop will cover the innovation process from discovering scientific knowledge to creating new products, including STT-MRAM, oscillators, and novel magnetic memory and logic structures. It will provide attendees opportunities to discuss new developments and to initiate collaborations and research projects. The workshop will benefit from the attendance of well-known contributors from academy, industry, and startups, but also from funding agencies and venture capital firms.

Two special sessions will be dedicated to fostering research cooperation between French and US researchers with emphasis on 3 domains: fundamental science, innovation and education of the next generation of scientists.
