Introduction The workshop will bring together a group of leading researchers from Taiwan and Spain working in the fascinating and rapidly evolving field of two-dimensional materials and interfaces for spintronics. 

The talks will cover a wide range of topics such as new spin-orbit coupled materials and interfaces (including functionalized graphene, 2D material heterostructures, transition metal dichalcogenides, topological insulators, …) , classical and quantum spin and valley Hall effects, spin relaxation, spin-charge conversion mechanisms, spin pumping, magnetic absorbates on surfaces, magnetic scanning tunneling probes, magnetism and topological phases of matter at interfaces, superconductivity in spin-split systems, topological superconducitivity, superconductor-magnet hybrid junctions, et cetera. 

This first joint Taiwan-Spain workshop on “Two-dimensional Materials and Interfaces for Spintronics” will take place in Barcelona, from October 23 to 25. It will be held by the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2). The workshop is co-organized by ICN2 and the National Center for Theoretical Sciences (NCTS).

TIARA Summer School on Astrostatistics and Big Data

September 4-8, 2017
Taipei, Taiwan


The aim of this summer school is to provide an expository overview of the emerging field of astrostatistics in the landscape of Big Data. The tentative lecture topics include (but are not limited to) fundamentals of statistics, image processing, time series analysis, machine learning methods, and visualization as applied to current and future surveys (e.g., Gaia, HSC, Pan-STARRS, DES, Kepler/K2, LSST, TAOS II, SKA). Due to resource constraints, the participants are limited to 50 graduate or advanced undergraduate students from within Taiwan and internationally.

Local lodging will be provided to up to 40 students with priorities given to graduate students.


Registration Deadline: June 15, 2017 (Participants holding PRC passports: May 31, 5 pm)
