Welcome to MORIS 2018!

We are pleased to invite you to be a part of MORIS 2018! MORIS (Magnetics and Optics Research International Symposium) is the world’s leading forum for discussions on fundamental and applied research in the area of magnetic, thermo-magnetic, and magneto-optical phenomena, incorporating recent trends extending towards magnonics, spin-photonics, optics and photonics, spin-electronics, nano-fabrication technologies, and novel magneto-optical materials and structures.

MORIS has been organized on a biannual basis since 1991. The first symposium was held in Tokyo in 1991. Since then, MORIS has been organized in many countries and has attracted researchers and engineers from universities and industry worldwide. The organizing committee currently consists of roughly 40 members from eight countries in the US, Japan, and Europe.

MORIS 2018 will be held from January 7-10, 2018 at the Queens College campus of the City University of New York. We look forward to seeing all of you then.

Mitsuteru Inoue and Alexander Lisyansky
