The ASEMD 2015 Program

International Conference on Applied Superconductivity and Electromagnetic Devices (ASEMD2015) will be held from 20 to 23 November 2015 in Shanghai. ASEMD2015 is sponsored by IEEE Beijing Section, with co-sponsors and principal organizers of Shanghai University, Tianjin University, and Shanghai Creative Superconductor Technologies Co. Ltd..

The 1st ASEMD conference was held in Chengdu, China, on September 25-27, 2009, the 2nd was in Sydney, on December 14-16, 2011, and the 3rd was in Beijing, China, on October 25-27, 2013. The IEEE ASEMD devotes itself to providing the researchers in the field of applied superconductivity and electromagnetic devices a platform for technical discussion, exchanging information, and progress updates.

Applied superconductivity is generally categorized into material, electrical and electronic sections. Material synthesis and characterization, power applications, rotating machines, and magnet technology are essential components comprising one principal part of the ASEMD scope.

Electromagnetic devices, the other principle part of ASEMD, covers electric, magnetic, and electronic devices, either superconducting or not. This part also includes work in electromagnetic analysis, measurement, and automation.

ASEMD2015 continues the focus and provides a forum for both academic and industrial researchers in the relevant fields to discuss and share ideas, present results, reflect on past experiences and discuss future developments.

Contributed papers to this conference will be published in its proceedings in the IEEE Xplore digital library, selected contributions will be published in a special issue of IEEE Transaction on Applied Superconductivity through the normal peer review process.
