June 9-10, 2022: UKMHD2022 meeting

Over the past four decades or so, the annual Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) meeting has become established as the leading national annual gathering for discussing the challenges and opportunities in Astrophysical, Geophysical and Laboratory MHD. This meeting will look to the UK’s researchers and their collaborator’s scientific achievements in the subject.

Sessions will address key research topics investigated by the UK MHD community giving priority to young researchers to present their work. With senior participants from across the country, poster presentations, and informal discussions, this two day meeting will provide you with the opportunity to meet the authors and listen to the research work carried out in various research groups.

21 April 2022 — MHD School 2022

Dear all,

with this email I announce that the MHD school will be held in April and May, 2022.
The program of the school is available at the link MHD School 2022 (

This course held in English is designed for students, engineers and scientists from industry and research centers who wish to improve their knowledge in the field of applied Magneto-hydrodynamics.

Although the theoretical background of MHD is reviewed, the course is mainly oriented towards the numerical methods and application to industrial processes.

Participants should have a degree in applied mathematics, physics, mechanical engineering, materials science, metallurgy, or chemistry.

Private or group discussions can take place at the end of the lectures, in order to treat more specific problems which the participants may raise

People should register in the webpage.

Best regards,

Abdellah Kharicha

June 13-17, 2021: EPM 2021 – Electromagnetic Processing of Materials (Riga, Latvia)

International conference ELECTROMAGNETIC PROCESSING OF MATERIALS 2021 will take place in Riga Latvia on June 13-17, 2021. 

Electromagnetic Processing of Materials (EPM) relates to all branches of materials processing where some benefit could be attained from an electromagnetic influence on the process. This covers traditional areas such as liquid metal processing, metal casting and solidification, induction heating, but also crystal growth from the melt, plasma processes, recycling, separation. The series of EPM conferences was initiated in 1994 by S. Asai (Japan) and M. Garnier (France). It takes place every three years alternating between Europa and Asia (Nagoya 1994, Paris 1997, Nagoya 2000, Lyon 2003, Sendai 2006, Dresden 2009, Beijing 2012, Cannes 2015, Hyogo 2018). The conference is open for any kind of materials processing involving electric or magnetic fields. It intends to bring together people from academic institutions, industry and related equipment manufacturers.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Riga 13-17 June 2021.
