General Information

The first conference of the series was held in 1972 at the University of Würzburg, followed by meetings in 1974 and 1976. The subsequent satellite meetings of the ICPS were held in Oxford 1978, Hakone 1980, Grenoble 1982, Nijmegen 1998, Matsue 2000, Oxford 2002 and Tallahassee 2004. Four more conferences of the series were held in Würzburg, 1986, 1988, 1990 and 1996.

The HMF 2006 will be held at the famous Würzburg Residenz, which is the baroque palace of the former Prince Bishop governing Würzburg. It has been assigned to the UNESCO world culture heritage. The Residenz is located in the center of the town, with numerous restaurants in the vicinity. Würzburg, which is a tourist attraction due to its medieval past, offers accommodation in hotels of all categories at attractive prices. A high level cultural program as well as a wine tasting party in the cellars of the Residenz will be provided.



The concept of the Würzburg conferences is based on renowned speakers presenting the latest results of their field of activity and simultaneously placing these results in a wider context. Contributed papers, as in the previous conferences, will be presented by posters. This concept was highly acclaimed by participants from all over the world and the meetings have been dubbed as "Würzburg conferences".

The following topics will be covered:

- Integer Quantum Hall Effect
- Fractional Quantum Hall Effect
- General Magneto-Transport in 2D- and 3D-Systems
- Magneto-Optics
- Magneto-Tunneling
- Magnetic Semiconductors
- Semiconductors in High Fields
- Quantum Dots in High Magnetic Fields
- Spin Effects
- Carbon Nanotubes
