SUMAN group participation at ISS2021 international conference

One more year, our group have been very active participating at the 34th International Symposium on Superconductivity (ISS2021), web-based online event from November 30 to December 2, disseminating the research work done at our group.

ISS symposium has a long history dating back to 1988. Since then, the series has continued as an annual event.

At 2021, it is celebrating its 34th edition and it was hosted by the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) and the Victoria University of Wellington (VUW). Dr. Haruhiko Obara, ISS2021 General Chair, expressed that “it is great to see that innovative exciting presentations draw attention to students and professionals in the world of superconductivity even if we are physically separated“. In addition, he say that “we also wanted to take this opportunity to strengthen the relationship between industry and the academic world“.

The international conference organized plenary, invited and contributed talks from different speakers in different parallel virtual meeting rooms by Webex concerning these topics: Physics and Chemistry, Wires and Bulk, Electronic Devices and Large Scale Applications.

The name of SUMAN members and the title of their talks are the followings:
