It is our great pleasure to announce the 26th Soft Magnetic Materials Conference (SMM), to  be held in Prague, Czech Republic.
We will celebrate  the 50th anniversary of this conference. Since the first event at Torino, Italy in 1973, SMM conferences  has brought academic and industrial specialists together to share and spread the latest advances on all aspects of soft magnetic materials.
The conference will provide all participants with opportunities to fruitfully exchange the latest developments, ideas and their experiences on the fields of materials properties, fundamental studies in magnetism and simulations, design and applications during technical sessions.
With your active contributions of submitting papers and presentations as well as active participation, the SMM26 surely will be an academically enriching, socially enjoyable, and truly memorable experience for all participants.
On behalf of the international steering committee, the editorial board and organizing committee, we cordially invite you to come to Prague to attend the SMM26!

Fresh SMM26 Conference photographs can be found in SMM memorabilia folder. Please share your old photographs and other SMM memorabilia at the same folder.
