Phase transition and Dynamical properties of Spin Transition Materials (PDSTM2016)

(Spain), 27th to 30th November 2016.

Phase Transition and Dynamical properties of Spin Transition Materials is the 6th international workshop of a series initiated by PDSTM-2006 in Tokyo, and then in Bordeaux (2008), Tsukuba (2010), Versailles (2012), Tokyo (2014) and for the first time will be held in Gandia (Valencia, Spain). PDSTM meetings are recognized and characterized by the intense and frank scientific exchanges in a very friendly atmosphere that will be kept in the present workshop.

PDSTM 2016 aims at gathering experts interested in the study of phase transitions on switchable materials with special focus on spin crossover molecular compounds. Topics covered during this conference will include recent advances in:
Synthesis of new switchable materials and their nanoscale processing (films, nanoparticles, nanocrystals, single molecules).
Physical characterizations of switchable materials using structural, optical, magnetic and near-field techniques at micro- and nanometer scales.
Theoretical models emerged from the study of the relationship between the microscopic structure and macroscopic properties of materials with spin transition.
This international conference will be held in Bayren Hotel in Gandia (Valencia, Spain) from Monday 28th to Wednesday 30th November 2016.

Attendance will be limited to 80 participants.

A social event is planned for Sunday 27th an excursion to the picturesque towns of Guadalest Castle and its Microminiatures Museum and Altea, a charming mediterranean village.
