The 9th APCTP Workshop on Multiferroics
RIKEN CEMS Topical Meeting on Multiferroics
9-11 November 2017, Kashiwa campus, University of Tokyo, Chiba, Japan


On behalf of the organizing committee, we are pleased to announce that "The 9th APCTP Workshop on Multiferroics" will be held in Kashiwa campus, University of Tokyo, Chiba, Japan on Nov. 9th (Thu) - 11th (Sat), 2017.

The APCTP workshop on multiferroics focuses on recent developments in the field of multiferroic materials. It is structured to combine both the experimental and theoretical studies and presents the latest results from scientists, mainly from member countries of Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP). Particularly, the 9th workshop will be held in combination with "the RIKEN CEMS Topical Meeting on Multiferroics" sponsored by RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science in Japan. The 9th workshop is also supported in part by Institute for Solid State Physics, Murata Science Foundation, and Tokuyama Science Foundation.

We look forward to seeing you at Kashiwa in Nov. 2017.

Yours sincerely,
Tsuyoshi Kimura (Chair of the 9th APCTP Workshop on Muitiferroics)


The following subjects related to multiferroic research will be discussed during the workshop:

  • Synthesis and characterization of bulk samples
  • Fabrication and characterization of thin films
  • Experimental and theoretical techniques for understanding cross-correlated phenomena
  • Interface (including heterostructures, surfaces, and domains)
  • Composite and nano-structured multiferroics
  • Design and discovery of new materials


Deadline for registration and abstract submission
August 31: 17:00 JST (GMT+09 hours)
