Escola Avançada Materiais Condutores Supercondutores Anisotrópicos

The event will be a unique opportunity for graduate students, post-docs and researchers working on anisotropic conductors and superconductors to be in contact with several of the most experienced speakers in the area.

Some experimental and theoretical topics on anisotropic conductors and superconductors will be deeply discussed during the school.

The main topics are: High resolution thermal expansion of low dimensional conductors; Anisotropic properties of iron arsenides and other superconductors; Heat transport and thermoelectric effect of anisotropic conductors; Anisotropic properties of graphite; Heavy fermions and intermetalic superconductors; Preparation of nanostructured superconductors. The event will be separated into three non-concurrent sessions: Invited courses, Invited oral presentations and Poster session.

The school will also be holding an opportunity to celebrate the centenary of the discovery of superconductivity by Kamerling Onnes in 1911.
