Women in Magnetism Network Event Image

“Women in Magnetism, What’s next?”
Step into the future of magnetism at the Women Networking Event during Intermag 2024!

All women at the conference are warmly invited to join our dynamic gathering. With the motto guiding us, seize the chance to exchange job positions, resumes, volunteering, mentorship offers, and project announcements within the community of “magnetic women.” Engage in meaningful discussions at topical tables covering leadership, academia, post-PhD opportunities, publications, work-life balance, and more. Let’s collaboratively shape the future of women in magnetism—what shall we do next?

Organized by the Women in Magnetism committee of the IEEE Magnetics Society:

Sensor Challenge
Luiz Augusto Sousa de Oliveira

Instruction meeting on Tuesday at 11:30 & final competition on Thursday evening.
Max. number of attendees: 30 students - Pre-registration required.

The challenge will be proposed to pre-register students. It will begin on Monday evening with a meeting, where instructions for the challenge will be given.

Hackathon: Machine Learning AI for Magnetism - Tutorial and Hands-on Experience

2:00PM - 4:00 PM on Wednesday,May 8
Room: to be defined
# of participants to be defined
Pre-registration required

Thomas Winkler1, Kilian Leutner1, Yuriy Mokrousov2, Hans Fangohr3,4, Mathias Kläui1

  1. Institute of Physics, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, 55099 Mainz, Germany

  2. Peter Grünberg Institut and Institute for Advanced Simulation (IAS-1), Forschungszentrum Jülich and JARA, 52425 Jülich, Germany

  3. Max-Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter, Luruper Chaussee 149, 22761 Hamburg, Germany

  4. University of Southampton, SO17 1BJ, Southampton, United Kingdom

Machine-learning-based techniques are becoming more relevant in modern research, as they enable fast and robust data evaluation or can predict the physical properties of investigated systems. We will cover these two aspects of artificial intelligence (AI) in the research field of spintronics.

This session organized by M. Kläui will consist of three parts: a talk on magnetic pattern recognition given by T. Winkler, a talk on AI-supported electronic structure predictions given by Y. Mokrousov, and hands-on activities led by K. Leutner and T. Winkler.”

The first introductory talk will deal with the data evaluation of magnetic imaging techniques, such as Kerr microscopy, with convolutional neural networks [1,2]. In the second part, AI-supported methods are presented to predict intricate changes in the electronic structure of non-collinear magnetic materials [3].

Participants can follow instructions to run AI models on their own laptop devices in the subsequent hands-on session. We will provide exemplary magnetic microscopy measurement data and suitable pre-trained AI models for their evaluation. Further instructions and files can be downloaded prior to the session under
