The 33rd Magnetic Recording Conference (TMRC)
August 29-31, 2022

The 33rd Magnetic Recording Conference will be held at Western Digital Milpitas campus on August 29-31, 2022. The focus of TMRC 2022 is Solid State Magnetic Memory and Recording Technologies for >3 Tbits/in2.

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 following the oral sessions and will feature posters from the invited speakers and accepted contributed posters. Presenters of invited & contributed papers are encouraged for publication.

Topics of interest include:

Solid State Memory – Devices and Applications

  • Spin Transfer Torque-Magnetic Random Access Memory (MTJ cell, MRAM chip manufacturing and roadmap)
  • MRAM– New Physics & Materials (MRAM architecture, VC-MRAM, SOT-MRAM, TI & 2D materials)
  • New Architectures and Applications for In-Memory and Near Memory Compute, Advanced Memory Bus Architectures, AI, ML and Neuromorphic Compute, 2.5 and 3D applications, Harsh environments

Advanced Generation Recording Technologies

  • Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR System, Head/Media and HDI)
  • Microwave-Assisted Magnetic Recording (MAMR), Energy-Assisted Magnetic Recording (EAMR)
  • Alternative Magnetic Recording Technologies (SMR, TDMR, HIMR, Heated-dot, Tape, All Optical Switching)
  • Advanced Magnetic Recording for > 3 Tbits/in2 including Readers, Writers, Servo, Tribology, HDI, Signal Processing
