General Information

The 26th The Magnetic Recording Conference (TMRC 2015) will be held Aug 17-19, 2015 at the campus of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, MN. TMRC 2015 will focus on “Enhanced future recording technologies for hard disk drives beyond 10 Tbyte capacity”.  Approximately 36 invited papers of the highest quality will be presented orally at the conference and will later be published in the IEEE Transactions on Magnetics. Poster sessions will also be held consecutive to the oral sessions and will feature posters from the invited speakers and a limited number of contributed posters.

Topics of interest include:

  • Perpendicular Magnetic Recording at beyond 1 Tbit/in2 (Readers, Writers, Servo, Tribology, HDI, Signal Processing)
  • Shingled (SMR) and Two-Dimensional Magnetic Recording (TDMR)
  • Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR)
  • Bit Patterned Magnetic Recording (BPMR)
  • Alternative Recording Technologies (MAMR, Tape, Spintronics, MRAM, STT-RAM, All-Optical Switching)
  • Fundamentals (Metrology, Tooling, Materials, Recording Physics)
