In this seminar we will discuss spin-dependent transport in complex magnetic materials. This transport physics is at the heart of many established and currently investigated spintronic applications. Spin transport is a major driver behind the tremendous increase of information storage capabilities taking place over the last decades. As such, it has shaped the transformation into a knowledge society. To continue this success story and contribute to global trends like digitalization and artificial intelligence, new materials, new methods and new ideas are mandatory. When spin angular momentum is transported in space and time through complex magnetic materials, structures or textures, such currents can interact with the transport medium, and eventually change its dynamical or static state. In particular, the aspect of active control due to this interaction generates a multitude of potential applications for spin transport in complex magnetic structures. The central aim of this seminar is to bring together researchers working at the forefront of material research, and others who develop and apply novel methods to image magnetic properties in such materials, with the scientists who directly investigate spin transport physics on a fundamental level and for applications. For this purpose, renown scientists will summit together with young talents.

The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.
