This meeting will bring together leading researchers in the fields of magnetism and superconductivity to explore new functionality in which spin, charge and superconducting phase coherence can work together. Their discoveries and predictions form the foundation for the field of superconducting spintronics which could eventually be developed as a replacement for large-scale semiconductor-based logic and memory.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions A.

Poster session

There will be a poster session at 17:00 on Monday 25 February 2019. If you would like to apply to present a poster please submit your title, proposed abstract (not more than 200 words and in third person), author list, name of the proposed presenter and authors' institutions to the Scientific Programmes team no later than Monday 14 January 2019. Please include the text "Superconducting spintronics: poster abstract" in the subject heading. Please note that places are limited and are selected at the scientific organisers' discretion. Poster abstracts will only be considered if the presenter is registered to attend the meeting.
