Virtual TMRC 2020 (August 17-20, 2020)

TMRC 2020 Virtual Platform

  1. TMRC 2020 is running virtually using the Pheedloop platform (
  2. Please note that the official conference registration site (TMRC 2020 Registration) is not through Pheedloop.
  3. All TMRC 2020 registered users are provided credentials to sign into the Pheedloop virtual event platform. This will be done via the email provided in the registration as registrations take place.
  4. Folks registering through the official conference site (TMRC 2020 Registration) once the conference has started, will be provided Pheedloop credentials on a timely basis. Unfortunately, this process is not fully automated so we will make every effort to frequently monitor the registration status and issue Pheedloop log-in credentials throughout the development of the conference.
  5. Once registered for the conference, should you need assistance for accessing the Pheedloop virtual site for TMRC 2020, please contact Siddhesh Sakhalkar ( or Amin Ghafari (

The focus of TMRC 2020 is Solid State Magnetic Memory and Recording Technologies for >3 Tbits/in2. Approximately 36 invited papers of the highest quality will be presented orally at the conference. What used to be the poster session will now be a contributed session to be presented in standard oral format. Presenters can choose either pre-recorded or real-time videoconferencing presentation. Presenters of both invited and contributed talks at TMRC 2020 are strongly encouraged to submit a paper for consideration for publication in IEEE Transactions on Magnetics.

The topics of interest include:

• Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR System, Head/Media and HDI)

• Microwave-Assisted Magnetic Recording (MAMR)

• Alternative Magnetic Recording Technologies (SMR, TDMR, HIMR, Heated-dot, Tape, All Optical Switching)

• Advanced Magnetic Recording for > 3 Tbits/in2 including Readers, Writers, Servo, Tribology, HDI, Signal Processing

• Spin Transfer Torque-Magnetic Random Access Memory (MTJ cell, MRAM chip, manufacturing and roadmap)

• MRAM & Magnetic Logic – New Physics & Materials (MRAM architecture, VC-MRAM, SOT-MRAM, TI & 2D materials)

• Fundamentals (Metrology, Tooling, Materials, Recording Physics)
