Workshop on Numerical Methods for Topological Magnetic Textures

28 & 29 November 2023, Karlsruhe

A workshop on Numerical Methods for Topological Magnetic Textures took place on 28 and 29 November 2023 in the Gastdozentenhaus of the Karlruher Institut für Technologie (KIT).

The workshop served as a platform for researchers who develop micromagnetic and atomistic simulation codes that are specifically designed for applications in the context of topological magnetic textures.

The workshop was organized by Jan Masell (Karlsruhe) and Hans Fangohr (Hamburg).

Young Researchers’ Retreat 2022

12 - 15 September 2022, Annweiler am Trifels

A retreat aimed at young researchers of the priority program SPP2137 took place from 12 - 15 September 2022 at Kurhaus Trifels in Annweiler am Trifels.

The retreat was supported by the DFG priority program on Skyrmionics. It pursued three objectives:

  1. building a network among young researchers interested in Skyrmionics, namely students, PhD candidates, postdocs, as well as junior group leaders,
  2. broadening the knowledge of the current status and the future of research on skyrmionics, and
  3. promoting individual communication and research skills.

The meeting featured scientific tutorials, contributed talks, poster sessions, and personal skills training. It was organized by Maria Azhar, Sebastián Díaz, Jonathan Kipp, and Sopheak Sorn.
