We would like to invite you to attend the 12th International conference on Magnetic Fluids, organized by the Magnetic Fluid Association of Japan in collaboration with Tohoku University, and the other Universities in Japan, to follow up a series of meetings that has been held in North (USA) and South Brazil) America, Russia (Riga), West Europe (Italy, UK, France, Germany) and East Europe (Romania, Slovakia), Asia (Japan, India), etc., every 3 years for the past 33 years since the first meeting that was held in Udine, Italy in 1977. The next meeting will be the first meeting to be held in any country for the second time.
The main objective of ICMF 12 is to exchange the research finding in the field of magnetic fluids regarding their chemistry, physical and magnetic properties, fluid dynamics, heat and mass transfer, and surface phenomena in the content of academic as well as industry oriented engineering and biomedical applications. As magnetic fluid is one of the first nanotechnological products that found engineering applications well before the nanotechnology era, there is revived interest in the field of biomedical application that has drawn many new researches to this field. This has made the magnetic fluid research even more interdiciplinary and experts from both engineering and biomedical fields will be invited to share their experience, report the results and discuss ways and means to find solutions to some of the unresolved problems.
ICMF 12 shall bring together over 200 specialists from approximately 30 countries worldwide, providing the opportunity to share their knowledge on appropriate scientific level, as well as to discover and define the problems to be explored. The conference program will include lectures given by invited speakers and conference participants, and poster communications involving all aspects of magnetic fluids. The conference language will be English. The proceedings are planned for publication as a special issue in a reputed academic journal.
