The FRAMS conferences are for researchers working in magnetics primarily in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains (the American states of Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico and surrounding areas). The mission of FRAMS is to foster and enhance interactions and collaborations among geographically separated researchers in different institutions and thereby strengthen the overall magnetics program in the Front Range. FRAMS also serves as a social and networking event. Faculty and staff members, including post-doctoral research fellows, make oral presentations on their very recent work. Graduate, undergraduate, and even high-school students participate in poster sessions. Undergraduate students can learn about opportunities for graduate research, and graduate students can follow leads for postdoctoral positions. The 8th Front Range Advanced Magnetics Symposium will be held at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, WY on August 20, 2022. It will be in person for poster and oral presentations but also have a virtual option for oral presentations for those who would attend remotely, including participants from outside of the Front Range region.
Following 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. Over the years, the hosting institutes of the FRAMS rotates around the university in the Front Range area. Breakfast and lunch will be provided at the meeting site. We will also provide complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres at the poster session.
The registration desk will be set up from 8:00 am to 10:00 am on 8/20/2022 (Sat). Parking passes are not needed in the weekend.
