Tutorial on Background and Methods of Highly Frustrated Magnetism
Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Waterloo, ON

We are very pleased that the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics will be hosting a one day tutorial on "Background and Methods of Highly Frustrated Magnetism". This symposium is aimed at graduate students, postdocs, and others new to the field of highly frustrated magnetism, and is intended to help prepare them to better participate in the main HFM 2012 conference, June 4-8.

The following speakers are all confirmed for "Background and Methods of Highly Frustrated Magnetism"

Collin Broholm (Johns Hopkins U, USA)
John Chalker (U Oxford, UK)
Philippe Mendels (U Paris Sud, France)
Oleg Tchernyshyov (Johns Hopkins U, USA)
Yong-Baek Kim (U Toronto, Canada)
