The 31st Magnetic Recording Conference

August 17-20, 2020





Contributed Paper Digest Submission

The 31st Magnetic Recording Conference (TMRC 2020) will be held VIRTUALLY from August 17-20, 2020.
What used to be the poster session will now be a contributed session to be presented in standard oral format. Presenters can choose either recorded or real-time presentation.

The session schedule will be arranged so that the presenters can make real-time presentations in a reasonable time in the presenter’s location.
Presentation duration is planned to be 20 min including discussions. We will let you know once we finalize the session schedule.

Contributed papers are encouraged for publication in the IEEE Transaction on Magnetics following a standard peer review process.

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)
