International Workshop on Statics and Dynamics of Non-collinear Spin Systems

The International Workshop on Statics and Dynamics of Non-collinear Spin Systems will take place on the 24th of September in the Otto Stern Lecture Hall at the Department of Physics of the University of Hamburg.


The workshop focuses on the discussion of recent advances and future directions in the observation, description and manipulation of spin configurations in nanoscale magnetic systems. Topics cover noncollinear spin structures in ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic systems, as well as the response of such configurations to thermal, magnetic or electric manipulation or excitations.

The lecture hall is located at the Jungiusstrasse campus of the University of Hamburg, close to the city centre of Hamburg. The entrance is from the Jungiusstrasse.

From Hamburg Airport it is recommended to take the line S1 to Ohlsdorf, then change to the line U1 at the other platform in the direction of Großhansdorf/Ohlstedt, finally get off the train at the station Stephansplatz (Oper/CCH), from where the location may be reached after a 10 minutes walk. The U1 station Stephansplatz (Oper/CCH) is also next to the railway station Hamburg Dammtor, where most regional, mainline and international trains passing through Hamburg stop. When following the signposts at the stations, the Jungiusstrasse campus is in the direction of the exhibition centre (Messehallen/CCH), not towards the main university campus (Universität).
