Following the success of previous workshops on MAGnetically Induced Currents in molecules (MAGIC) in Helsinki, Salerno, Kragujevac and Cambridge, I am pleased to say that the next workshop will be held on the island of Frauenwörth in lake Chiemsee.  This will take place between Monday 9/9/2024 and Friday 13/9/2024.  The venue for the workshop, including accommodation, will be the monastery of Frauenwörth. More information on the abby and its seminar center can be found here:  Kloster | Abtei Frauenwörth | Frauenchiemsee | Fraueninsel | Frauenwoerth. Here, we collect some general information on the location and surroundings

The workshop will cover different aspects of magnetically induced current densities in atoms and molecules from experimental, theoretical, and computational points of view.  Relations between the nature of the chemical bond and molecular magnetic properties will also be within the scope of the conference.  The conference will create links between established scientists and young researchers, which will, it is hoped, trigger future research collaborations.

The conference begins on Monday noon with registration/welcome. The talks will begin after breakfast on Tuesday morning. The conference ends with lectures on Friday morning and departure on Friday after lunch.  The conference is divided into sessions with lectures having a common theme.  Each session has time reserved for a common discussion.  The first lecturer of each session functions as chairman and discussion leader of their session.  The basic principle is that all participants give a talk, which limits the number of participants to about 35.  All participants can show a poster.  The posters are up during the whole conference. 

The booking of accomodation and meals will be made at the conference center while booking of the conference attendance and conference dinner is to be made directly with us. All required links and further information on this will be provided in due time. Breakfasts and dinners should be booked such that all participants can collectively take them. There is no common lunch time planned so the time can be used to explore the island or talk with colleagues. The island offers at least four good restaurants, some fisherman sales shops where smoked fish and the like can be obtained and a tiny supermarket. Apart from free lunch times there will be one free afternoon with a small culture program and the conference dinner.
