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:
