HTS 2020 postponed to 2021

Sadly, we have to announce the postponement of the HTS 2020 workshop to the next year. Indeed, the organization of the virtual ASC 2020 conference at the same time as our workshop complicates both the organization of the workshop and compromises your participation, even in the case of a virtual HTS 2020 workshop.
It was thought wiser not to hinder the largest superconductivity community congress.

We expect to host the 7th Workshop on Numerical Modelling of HTS in June 2021. If possible, one week after the 3rd International School on Numerical Modelling for Applied Superconductivity, which will take place in Lausanne.

For your convenience, registrations already paid for will be kept and transferred in 2021. Submitted and accepted abstracts will also be stored. However, if you wish, you may withdraw your abstract and submit another one next year, it will then be reviewed again.

The research and development of modelling tools and approaches is a fundamental subject in applied superconductivity.

High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) materials raise complex challenges in the design and prediction of devices behaviour due to their thermal and electromagnetic dependencies and non-linearities, hysteresis, anisotropy, high wire aspect ratio and interaction with other functional materials.

For this new edition, the topics of the workshop are split into three main categories:

  • Modelling Fundamentals

    • Improvements in fundamental numerical methods to simulate superconducting materials, including HTS, MgB2 and iron-based materials,
    • Innovative methods and tools for design and simulation of HTS materials,
    • Original, novel application of commercial numerical software packages,
    • Open access modelling and simulation resources for teaching, training and research.
  • Coupled & Uncoupled Multiphysics Problems

    • Computation of AC losses under distinct regimes,
    • Thermal modelling (coupled and uncoupled),
    • Mechanical modelling (coupled and uncoupled).
  • Applications

    • Design and optimisation tools for HTS devices for power/transportation applications [Topics include energy storage, including SMES and flywheels; fault current limiters; power cables; transformers; wind generators; stacked tape machines; and others],
    • Development of tools for integration with power grid software simulators,
    • Novel applications of HTS materials.

The UniGR HTS Modelling Workshop aims to bring together researchers specializing in physics, mathematics, and electrical engineering applied to new and existing computational methods, the development of modeling tools, the advanced use of simulation software and the design of superconductivity applications in the industrial environment.

The workshop format facilitates discussion among researchers, which is necessary to achieve their objectives.

COVID-19 - The workshop has been postponed

Dear attendees of HTS 2020,

Given the current situation related to COVID-19 and in particular the confinement and restrictions around the world, I would like to announce the postponement of the HTS 2020 workshop. In accordance with the results of the survey sent to those who submitted a 2-page digest, the workshop has been postponed to October 27-30, 2020.

I deeply regret having to make this decision, but the earlier people are informed, the more opportunities they have to change their travel plans. Of course, we will make all the necessary arrangements to refund or transfer your registration fees if you cannot participate on the new date.

I am aware that nothing will ever be the same again and I am trying to take the necessary decisions to ensure that this event remains a success!

Best regards,

Dr. Kévin Berger
Organizing Committee Chair of HTS 2020
