Magnonics – the study of spin waves – continues enjoying a period of rapid growth, fuelled by the recent demonstrations of metamaterials and devices capable of data and signal processing based upon propagating spin waves (magnons). Together with the opportunity for creation of non-volatile, magnetic field controlled and re-programmable devices, the prospect of making such devices also ultrafast, i.e. operating at rates of tens of GHz or even of THz, makes magnonics ever more attractive both for engineers and physicists. Hence, to explore and fully exploit opportunities emerging from fusion with the field of ultrafast magnetism, the 4th International Advanced School on Magnonics 2020 (IASM’2020) this year’s event will be organised in framework of COST Action CA17123 - Ultrafast opto-magneto-electronics for non-dissipative information technology (MAGNETOFON).
Building upon the success of the previous events, held in St Margherita Ligure (Italy) in 2012, in Exeter (UK) in 2016 and in Kyiv (Ukraine) in 2018, the School’s programme will feature an overview of and introduction into cutting-edge research in magnonics, with an additional focus on cross-disciplinary topics in ultrafast magnetism and beyond. The School is aimed both at early stage researchers already working in magnonics and ultrafast spin dynamics and at experienced researchers further afield who would like to develop their research activities to the School’s topic. The School will also offer an excellent opportunity to share latest discoveries, to exchange opinions and ideas, and to discuss future of spin wave research and prospects for creation of ultrafast spin wave devices. The lectures will be delivered by world-leading experts in magnonics, spintronics and ultrafast magnetism, broadly united under the following five umbrella topics:

The programme will also feature four panel discussions aiming at exploration of further novel opportunities in physics and technology of spin waves and adjacent research topics:
All participants are very welcome to submit abstracts for poster presentations, to enable them to share their recent research results while also fuelling opportunity for fruitful discussions.
Participation in the School of the eligible EU researchers will be funded by MAGNETOFON. The other participants (e.g. those from outside EU) will need to fund their participation from alternative sources. The costs will however be kept at minimum and inexpensive student’s accommodation will also be available.
COST is supported by the EU Framework Programme Horizon 2020.
