Invited Speakers

S. Ammar

University of Paris (France)

Coupling Pro-apoptotic TRAIL factor to superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles to build nanohybrid drugs for cancer therapy

Souad Ammar is professor in the chemistry department of Université de Paris (France). Graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Paris in 1993, she obtained her PhD in Solid State Chemistry in 1996 at Université Pierre & Marie Curie. Her research activities concerns the elaboration the characterization and the integration of inorganic and hybrid nanostructures for targeted applications in the field of renewable energy, environment and nanomedicine.

R. Bertacco

Polytechnic of Milano (Italy)
TMek: A digital lab-on-chip diagnostic test for malaria

Riccardo Bertacco (orcid.org/0000-0002-8109-9166) received his PhD in Physics in 2000. In 2001 he has been visiting researcher in the group of A. Fert (Nobel Laureate for Physics 2007) working on oxide spintronics. He is full professor at the Physics Department of Politecnico di Milano, where he leads the Nanomagnetism for Biology and Spintronics group (http://nabis.fisi.polimi.it/). He is also the director of the clean-room (PoliFab) for micro and nanofabrication of POLIMI (http://polifab.polimi.it/). Starting from a background on electron spectroscopy and surface magnetism, his research activity is nowadays focused on spintronics, nanoelectronics and on the applications of magnetism to biology and medicine.

A.M. Figueiredo Neto

University of São Paulo (Brazil)

Anisotropy in the nonlinear optical parameters of magnetic colloids: the third-order susceptibility and the hiperpolarizability

Professor of Physics at The University of São Paulo in Brazil. Post-Doctoral activities at Université Paris Sud, Orsay, France. Research interests: Physics of liquid crystals, magnetic colloids and biological fluids. Head of the National Institute of Science and Technology on Complex Fluids. Member of the Brazilian Academy of Science and The Academy of Science of the State of São Paulo..

O. Gutfleisch

Technical University of Darmstadt (Germany)

Magnetic materials for efficient energy conversion

Oliver Gutfleisch is a full Professor for Functional Materials at TU Darmstadt and a scientific director at Fraunhofer IWKS Hanau Materials Recycling and Resource Strategies. His scientific interests span from permanent magnets for power applications to solid-state energy efficient caloric cooling, ferromagnetic shape memory alloys, magnetic nanoparticles for biomedicine, with emphasis on tailoring structural and chemical properties on the nanoscale. Resource efficiency on element, process and product levels as well as recycling of rare earth magnets are also in his focus.

H. Kachkachi

University of Perpignan (France)

Dynamic response of an assembly of nanomagnets: ac susceptibility and specific absorption

Full professor – Theoretical physics. The main interest is in the study of elementary excitations and particles (electrons, magnons, phonons, photons, plasmons, etc.), their interactions and their role in the onset of collective and macroscopic states that underpin the observed phenomena. The present focus is on electrodynamics of hybrid nanostructures and the study of efficient channels for energy absorption, conversion and transfer.

J. Nogues

Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (Spain)

Fe3O4 nanocubes as versatile theranostic agents

Prof. Nogués obtained his PhD at the Kungliga Tekniska Höskolan in Stockholm (Sweden) in 1993. He was at the University of California San Diego for 4 years as post-doc. Since 2006 he is the group leader of the Magnetic Nanostructures group at the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2). He has published 254 articles, with over 19,000 citations and an H-index of 59.

D. Suess

University of Wien (Austria)

Additive manufacturing of isotropic and in-situ aligned anisotropic permanent magnets

Prof. Dieter Suess did his habilitation at TU Wien and is not Group Speaker and associate Professor at the University of Vienna. He is author of more than 250 publications with an H-index of 29. His research on exchange spring media, TMR, and vortex based sensors, had dramatic impacts on current hard disk drive and sensors technology for automotive.
