Workshop: Computational Micromagnetics with JOOMMF

Sunday, July 15
1:30 – 5:00 pm

This workshop will provide a brief introduction to computational micromagnetics. We will introduce and teach the use of a Python interface to drive the OOMMF simulation package. At the beginning, we will provide a lecture style introduction, which is followed by practical exercises where attendees will have an opportunity to carry out small micromagnetic calculations, modify given examples and ask more specific questions. All participants are expected to bring their laptops. This project is a part of the Jupyter-OOMMF (JOOMMF) activity in the OpenDreamKit project and we acknowledge financial support from Horizon 2020 European Research Infrastructures project (#676541). Further information will be available at http://joommf.github.io/news.html.

There is no extra cost to registered ICM2018 attendees to attend this Workshop, and although registration is NOT required for this event we ask that you indicate on your registration form if you plan to attend so that we can ensure adequate meeting space is available:


Entrepreneurship Tutorial - From Concepts to Products: Pathways to Success

Sunday, July 15
1:30 – 3:00 pm

Supported in part by:

Here in Silicon Valley, starting new companies is a way of life. Many software projects require minimal capital investments, but that is often not the case with hardware. So, how do you get started if you have an idea for a hardware product and how do you fund your venture and find customers? Learn from our panelists how they tackled the challenges of taking hardware products to market and what they learned along the way.

Moderator: Tom Coughlin, Coughlin Associates

In our fast-moving and globalized world, limited time and long distances hinder us from being close to our loved ones. However, videos and pictures have made it possible to capture and share important moments. Instead of viewing these memories on a flat screen, what if we could go back and be a part of that special moment again? We believe in bringing people together by bridging distances in time and space through 3D technology.


Andrew Kent, Spin Transfer Technologies

New York University and Allied Minds teamed up in 2011 and established Spin Transfer Technologies (STT) to develop and commercialize its spin transfer magnetoresistive random access memory technology. The technology was originally developed from the mesoscopic magnetism research conducted in the laboratory of Professor Andrew Kent.

Resume Writing Tutorial - Presenting Your Best Self to Hiring Managers in Industry, Government and Academia


Sunday, July 15
3:30 – 5:00 pm

If you’d like a job at some point, it is almost a certainty that you will need to write a resume or curriculum vitae that will make a compelling case for you to be interviewed. Learn from our panelists what works and what mistakes they regularly see on resumes.

Speakers:

Liesl Folks, University of Buffalo

Tom Thomson, University of Manchester
