TMRC 2017:

(Copyright © Epochal Tsukuba)
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. 38 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.
Topics of interest include:

  • Advanced Magnetic Recording for > 2 Tbits/in2 including Readers, Writers, Servo, Tribology, HDI, Signal Processing.
  • Two-Dimensional Magnetic Recording (TDMR)
  • Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR)
  • Heated Dot Magnetic Recording (HDMR)
  • Magnetic Solid State Memory (MRAM, STT-RAM, Racetrack)
  • Alternative Magnetic Recording Technologies (SMR, MAMR, Tape, All Optical Switching)
  • Magnetic Solid State Memory (MRAM, STT-MRAM, VC-MRAM, SOT-MRAM)
  • Fundamentals (Metrology, Tooling, Materials, Recording Physics)
