The 28th Magnetic Recording Conference (TMRC 2017)
will be held on August 2 - 4, 2017 at the Tsukuba International Congress Center (EPOCHAL TSUKUBA) in Tsukuba, Japan.
TMRC 2017 will focus on future magnetic storage technologies for hard disk drives and solid state memories. Approximately 36 invited papers of the highest quality will be presented orally at the conference and will later be published in the IEEE Transactions on Magnetics. Poster sessions will also be held consecutive to the oral sessions and will feature posters from the invited speakers and accepted contributed posters. Both invited and contributed papers are encouraged for publication.

Student Travel Grants:
(Student Travel Grants)
The IEEE Magnetic Society will award travel grants of up to $1000 each to a limited number of students working in basic and applied magnetism. These grants are intended to partially offset travel costs to attend TMRC 2017. Support is for current graduate students only, including PhD candidates and those students who are nearing completion of a Master's degree but are not continuing on for a Ph.D. Postdoctoral fellows, undergraduates or non-students are not eligible. Preference will be given to students who are student Members of the Magnetics Society, nearing completion of their graduate studies and presenting conference papers. Students’ advisors are required to be members of the Magnetics Society. Students who have previously received travel support from the Magnetics Society for any conference are not eligible.
Please submit your application for a student travel grant via the link provided below. For the application to be considered, the student must complete and submit the on-line application form. The student's advisor must submit an on-line letter of endorsement. In addition, a second on-line letter of endorsement, which must be from an IEEE Magnetics Society member, is also required.
Students are encouraged to submit applications by June 28, 2017
. Late applications will be considered as funds allow.
Applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision about a week after.
: Travel grants are a reimbursement for actual expenses. So the students must attend the conference and submit receipts afterwards to the student travel coordinator, which then are processed and reimbursed by IEEE. Checks will neither be sent in advance nor issued directly at the conference.
Shortly after the conference grant recipients must submit a short account of their experience for possible inclusion in the Magnetic Society Newsletter.
To apply, the student must complete and submit the on-line application form.
The student's advisor must submit a letter of endorsement.
In addition, a second letter of endorsement, which must be from an IEEE Magnetics Society member, is also required.
Please note that only complete applications including all three documents will be considered.
For any remaining questions, please contact the Student Travel Coordinator:
