We are pleased to invite you to the 2nd annual Front Range Advanced Magnetics Symposium (FRAMS), which will be held at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, WY on August 18th and 19th, 2016. The symposium will be a two-day meeting of researchers from the Front Range who are working on or interested in magnetic materials and magnetic phenomena.
Following the success of the first FRAMS held at CSU in September 2015, this symposium strives to continue the mission to foster and enhance interactions and collaborations among Front Range researchers and to strengthen the overall magnetics program in the Front Range and surrounding areas. We invite all faculty and staff members, including post-doctoral researchers, to make oral presentations on their recent work, either complete or incomplete. We also invite all graduate and undergraduate students to present their work in a competitive poster session; we anticipate selecting five posters for awards. In addition, this symposium will include a small number of invited talks to highlight selected recent breakthroughs.
Tentatively, the program will start on the morning of Thursday, August 18th and close on Friday, August 19th in the afternoon. Breakfast and lunch will be provided at the meeting site. We will also provide complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres at the poster session, which will be followed by a BBQ dinner at the historical Laramie train depot. Other activities include touring the campus and research labs. Time and weather permitting, a short hiking trip may be planned.
