Plenary Lectures

Plenary lectures are planned during ICM 2003. Plenary lectures are intended to provide the audience with novel, updated information on some of the most exciting topics and of the rapidly developing areas of pure and applied magnetism. The very broad audience of ICM 2003 will be given the opportunity of getting valuable information, in concise form, about some of the most significant trends in modern magnetism.

Six plenary lectures will be given by outstanding scientist. Three of them are the IUPAP Magnetism Prize winners and three have been selected by the program Commitee.

Dante GATTESCHI University of Florence - Italy
Molecular magnets, new opportunities in magnetism
Mark H. KRYDER Seagate Research, Pittsburgh - USA
