The 2012 International Conference on Highly Frustrated Magnetism will be held at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada from June 4-8, 2012. This international conference will focus on recent developments in the study of the phenomena of frustration in magnets. It will feature presentations reporting on experimental and theoretical studies of frustrated magnetism, in all of its manifestations.

This conference follows in the series of HFM 2010 (Baltimore, USA), HFM 2008 (Braunschweig, Germany), HFM 2006 (Osaka, Japan), HFM 2003 (Grenoble, France), and HFM 2000 (Waterloo, Canada).

McMaster University is located in the Westdale neighbourhood of Hamilton, Ontario, at the extreme western tip of Lake Ontario. It is about a 45 minute drive from either Toronto or Niagara Falls, and about a 75 minute drive from Buffalo, NY. The Niagara escarpment runs through the city, providing a venue for many small waterfalls within the city limits. Daytime temperatures in early June typically range from 20 – 25 C, 70-75 F.
