Young Scientist Plenary Session ASC Event
It is with immense pleasure that we introduce the first Young Scientist Plenary session at the Applied Superconductivity Conference. This event originated at the Magnet Technology conference held in Amsterdam in 2017 (MT25) and its introduction into ASC was strongly supported by the community. It is the intent to continue with this event at future ASC programs. We hope to see this become one of the most prestigious opportunities offered to younger scientists and an event that is highly anticipated by all attending who are interested in the future generations’ direction in applied superconductivity.
The young scientists, who are selected among recommendations made by the Program Committee, have demonstrated outstanding, significant potential in the field of superconductivity and have gained the recognition and interest of other scientists in the community.
The organizing committee chairs, Luisa Chiesa and Sasha Ishmael, believe that this addition to the plenary sessions gives the entire applied superconductivity community exposure to the novel thoughts, approaches and unexplored paths that these young scientists deliver. We would also like to highlight and thank the Penn State University, College of Engineering for sponsoring this event. With pride and pleasure we present ASC20’s selection of Young Scientist Plenaries.
