Anouncement



Overview


Dear Colleagues;

We are very pleased to announce the holding of the 14th international workshop of High Temperature Superconductors in High Frequency Fields (HTSHFF 2018). The first workshop was held in Williamsburg (1990), and was followed by meetings in Santa Fe (1992), Cologne (1994), Asilomar (1996), Stockholm (1998), Capri (2000), Cape Cod (2002), Girona (2004), Cardiff (2006), San Diego (2010), Matsushima (2012), Fréjus (2014), San Francisco Bay Area (2016). HTSHFF 2018 will be held between from June 5-8, 2018 in Zao-Onsen (Yamagata, Japan).

HTSHFF 2018 is hosted by Yamagata University and is chaired by Prof. Shigetoshi Ohshima (Yamagata University). The workshop will be held at the beautiful and relaxing Zao-Onsen (hot springs) in Yamagata Prefecture from June 5-8, 2018. In this workshop, scientists, engineers, students and industrial developers gather together to discuss the fundamentals and applications of superconducting high frequency devices and low temperature equipment, as well as share their experiences, new ideas, and research results concerning all aspects of high and low temperature superconductors in high frequency fields. In addition, HTSHFF 2018 invites prominent researchers with achievements in the research and development of superconducting and low temperature equipment, providing a place to exchange information with participants.

Sincerely,
Shigetoshi Ohshima


Program


* Program will be determined around late April, 2018.
