ASC 2020: Bringing Horizons into Clear View

Chairman’s Welcome

On behalf of the entire organizing team, I’m honored to invite you to join us at the Tampa Convention Center for the 2020 Applied Superconductivity Conference, June 28 – July 3, 2020. ASC is the foremost gathering point for the electronics, large scale, and materials fields within the applied superconductivity community. We expect program content to include original work in digital electronics, quantum information, astronomy, accelerators, fusion, energy, transportation, medicine, conductors, and properties and testing. The 2020 theme, “Bringing Horizons into Clear View,” acknowledges the excitement of superconductivity and the predictions made in the past, the long journey many applications have taken to come to fruition, and the promising opportunities yet to come.

We are proud to welcome you to Tampa, a vibrant urban city with a rich history dating back to early settlement of North America. Whether you sample a hand-made cigar from Ybor City, walk the finest beaches in Clearwater, view the Dali museum in St. Petersburg, or enjoy countless local breweries and the “world’s largest” wine cellar of Burns, we hope you will find time to enjoy the city and region.

As always, the technical program will represent a wide cross-section of the field, hot topics, and special themes. The exhibition will feature industrial representatives who are critical to enabling us, as scientists and engineers, to do our work. Vibrant student and outreach programs will prepare the next generation and build diversity in our field.

We are further happy to continue partnering with the IEEE Council on Superconductivity to allow submission of conference manuscripts to a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity (TAS), a peer-reviewed and fully indexed and searchable publication available through IEEE Xplore. Open access is available.

On behalf of many, many volunteers making this conference possible – whether serving as members of the ASC Board of Directors, the Program Committee, the Editorial staff, or as chairs of conference initiatives, we look forward to seeing you in Tampa!
