The International Symposium on Frontier of Superconductivity Research (VIII) —Advances in Exploration of Novel Superconductors”, organized by the National Lab for Superconductivity, Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, between October 24 and 27, 2019.
The National Lab for Superconductivity at the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing (http://nlsc.iphy.ac.cn/), established in 1991, is a national premier base for superconductivity research in China and an important hub for academic exchange among domestic and foreign scholars in this field. Current research projects include searching for new superconductors, investigating the superconductivity mechanism and related physics problems, thin films synthesis as well as superconducting devices development and their applications.
Aiming to strengthen international scientific exchange and foster international scientific collaboration, the National Lab for Superconductivity initiated in 2011 an “International Symposium on Frontier of Superconductivity Research” which contains a series of symposiums held once a year. We have successfully organized the symposium “Exploration of Novel Superconductors” (2011), ARPES (2012), Neutron Scattering (2013), STM (2014), Transport and Thermodynamic Properties (2015), NMR and mSR (2016) and Optical Spectroscopy (2017) on Unconventional Superconductors. This year marks the 8th symposium that focuses on “Advances in Exploration of Novel Superconductors”. The symposium usually consists of 8~10 speakers from abroad and another 8~10 speakers from China. You attended the 1st Symposium in 2011.
We hope to make the Symposium informative, encouraging and inspiring, particularly to young scientists and graduate students.
Chair: Prof. Xingjiang ZHOU, Director, National Lab for Superconductivity
