Statement on the Russian invasion of Ukraine
The Russian invasion of Ukraine jeopardizes the safety of Ukraine people and threatens the peace and order in the world. The MORIS organizers are deeply shocked by the situation in Ukraine and declares that we do not support any military solution of conflicts anywhere in the world. We express our deep concerns about the political situation and sincerely hope that for the fast and peaceful solution of the conflict.

      Welcome to MORIS2022!

      MORIS (Magnetics and Optics Research International Symposium) is the world’s leading forum for discussions on fundamental and applied research in the area of magnetic, thermo-magnetic, and magneto-optical phenomena, incorporating recent trends extending towards magnonics, spin-photonics, optics and photonics, spin-electronics, nano-fabrication technologies, and novel magneto-optical materials and structures. MORIS has been organized on a biannual basis since 1991. Since then, MORIS has been organized in many countries and has attracted researchers and engineers from universities and industry worldwide MORIS2022 will be held from May 16th – 19th, 2022 in Shimane, Japan. We are looking forward to seeing all of you then.
