Scope of the Conference


EUCAS is a worldwide forum for scientists and engineers. The conference provides an ideal platform to share knowledge and the most recent advances in all areas of applied superconductivity: from large-scale applications to miniature electronics devices, with a traditional focus on advanced materials and conductors. The broad scope is at the same time a challenge and an opportunity to foster novel, inter-disciplinary approaches, and promote cross-fertilization among the various fields of applied superconductivity.

The Scientific Programme Committee has taken up this challenge and is devising a diverse and exciting programme. In line with the tradition of conferences on applied superconductivity, and following the successful experience, all papers presented at the conference are eligible for submission to a peer-reviewed special issue of IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity.

Submissions may include:

  • Advances in applied superconductivity technology
    The theory, experimental studies, methods of analysis and tests, design, manufacturing, and operation of superconducting devices or their components, and superconducting materials. Generic study of a non-superconducting technology, systems, or devices that fail to incorporate at least one of the criteria above might or might not be accepted for presentation at the Conference.

  • Application of superconducting devices and their components
    Examples of such submissions include but not limited to studies of power grids with superconducting components, cryogenics, non-superconducting materials at cryogenic temperatures, power supplies, etc. These publications must contain a sufficient description of the superconducting device itself, or address specific issues of interfacing the superconducting device or component with the rest of the system, or description of the uniqueness of a superconducting device or component for the particular system application.
