Travel tips

We have early summer (typically around 20°C maximum). More details can be found on our departmental weather satation and BBC weather.

We recommend to fly into the Manchester Airport connecting via major European aiports, such as Frankfurt, Paris, Helsinki and Copenhagen. From the Manchester Aiport, TransPennine Express offers direct services to York (approximately 1 hour 30 minutes).

For those plan to visit the other places in the U.K., BritRail Pass will offer some discount within a limited period for non-U.K. residents.

Spintronics is one of the emerging fields in condensed matter physics and has been utilised intensively in magnetic recording, i.e., hard disk drives. In spintronics, Japan has a leading position in high-quality film growth and device fabrication. The U.K. leads in characterisation and modelling.

We have been organising the York-Tohoku Research Symposium over the last 10 years partially funded by the Symposium Scheme for Japanese researchers based in the U.K. by the JSPS London. We now successfully expand our symposium series to establish tri-national collaborations between York-Tohoku-Kaiserslautern on "New-Concept Spintronics Devices". This is funded by EPSRC-JSPS Core-to-Core program, which funds "best with best" principle. The first two days of this symposium is dedicated as an open symposium of our Core-to-Core project.

This symposium is open for everyone with free registration. We offer attendees opportunities to present their works as posters over lunch and breaks. We wish to have fruitful discussion on spintronics devices as well as future collaborations between the U.K./E.U. and Japan.

This symposium is funded through the EPSRC research grant on "Spintronic Devices for Integrated Logic Circuits" (EP/M02458X/1) jointly with JSPS Core-to-Core Program on "International Research Center for New-Concept Spintronics Devices" and OPTIMAS.
