    - The program of workshop and the travel information regarding taxi fare were updated. (20th Nov)

    - The travel information for international participants was updated.

    - The program of workshop is now available.

    Registration deadline is extended to 10/29 (Wed). Although no registration fee needs be paid to attend the workshop, pre-registration is highly required for workshop arrangements in many aspects. It is recommended that graduate students and post-doc researchers who are studying multiferroics and other related fields participate in this meeting giving a poster presentation.

    The APCTP Workshop on Multiferroics got started at APCTP in 2008 and continued to be held annually since. The previous sites for the workshop include Tokyo, Hsinchu, Beijing, and Singapore. The workshop has successfully brought together the most active researchers in the field and enhanced the strength of collaboration in the international communityIndeed, they have acted as a catalyst for a number of recent discoveries and advances, including new materials and theoretical predictions, and interpretations.

    The workshop is intended particularly for young students or researchers in the region and thus includes tutorial programs where experts in the field will review the current situation and suggest the future direction. A conference is also scheduled to provide opportunities for poster presentation of most recent results. In the spirit of APCTP there is no registration fee for this workshop, but pre-registration is required for lodging arrangements. 

    Multiferroics, materials or systems combining magnetic and ferroelectric properties, present a potentially impactful novel class of materials. These systems exhibit tunable coupling between electrical polarization and spontaneous magnetization and have attracted considerable attention in recent years both in terms of the physical mechanism governing their unusual properties but also their application capabilities in the electronics industry, including fine control of magnetic memory by electric field. Multiferroics research as a field has become an arena for most rapidly developing activities in condensed matter physics. Advances achieved in materials physics since the late eighties in sample preparation, sample characterization, and theory are merging together to propel the field.
