The Asian Union of Magnetics Societies (AUMS)

The AUMS was initiated by the four magnetic societies – the Magnetics Society of Japan (MSJ), the Korean Magnetics Society (KMS), the Taiwan Association for Magnetic Technology (TAMT), and the Chinese Society of Magnetic Materials and Applications (CSMMA). The framework of the AUMS was first proposed at the 4th Asia Forum on Magnetics in Taiwan, 2007. One year later in Beijing, at the 5th Asia Forum foundation of the AUMS has been decided. The first Council meeting was held in Sendai on March 25, 2009, where a new international conference of AUMS (IcAUMS) was initiated and to be held every other year. The first inaugural conference was held in Korea 2010.

Since the establishment in January 1, 2009, AUMS has been contributing tremendous efforts to promote advances in the fields of magnetism, magnetic materials and applications in Asia Pacific region. IcAUMS has been very proud of providing an outstanding platform for all scientists, experts, and entrepreneurs to communicate and exchange recent academic and industrial developments. So far it has been successfully held five times in Korea (2010), Japan (2012), China (2014), Taiwan (2016) and Korea (2018).

In addition, the Russian Magnetics Society (RMS) and the Vietnam Magnetics Society (VMS) were admitted to join the AUMS at the AUMS council meeting in Vietnam, 2018.

The 6th IcAUMS jointly organized with ISAMMA, is now waiting for you in Okinawa, Japan, during December 14-17, 2020.
