Four symposia on specific, attractive topics will take place during ICM 2003.
In each of them, a team of distinguished scientists co-ordinated by a chairperson (a prominent scientist who will introduce and conclude the symposium) will discuss in detail the most recent achievements on particularly significant fields of pure and applied magnetism.

Titles and invited speakers of symposia lectures are:
