We successfully closed the International Workshop on Iron-based Superconductors which has been held on February 12th - 14th, 2020 in Santa Margherita (GE), in the beautiful Riviera Ligure close to Portofino, at Best Western Hotel Regina Elena.
This event was organized by Valeria Braccini (CNR-SPIN Genova), Laura Gozzelino (Politecnico di Torino) and Enrico Silva (University of RomaTre), and supported by IEEE CSC Council of Superconductivity, DIFI-University of Genova and the Project of Relevant National Interest PRIN HIBiSCUS (High performance-low cost Iron BaSed Coated condUctorS for high field magnets).
The Workshop has been very fruitful: we saw a wide participation with 72 scientists from 11 countries and 4 continents, and we had 4 keynote speakers, 9 invited speakers and 29 contributed orals which made the discussion very lively and productive.
Topics ranged from the properties of the Iron-based superconducting materials to their possible applications In particular, we had the pleasure to drive a wide discussion on perspectives of IBS conductors for high field magnets in accelerators, with the participation of Dr. Amalia Ballarino from CERN and Prof. Yanwei Ma in videoconference from China.
