The aim of the conference is to generate an overview of world-wide Research and Development in the field of magnetic shape memory alloys and related phenomena. Emphasis will be given to fundamental studies expanded to the related fields and the practical utility of Ferromagnetic Shape Memory Alloys (FSMAs). By presentation and discussion of the most recent results covering both fundamental and applied aspects of FSMAs, this conference will provide an inspiring environment for developing new ideas, forging collaborations, meeting old and making new friends.
