Materials and Mechanisms of Superconductivity High Temperature 
Superconductors VIII   	
July 9 to July 14, 2006
Dresden, Germany

The 8th International Conference on Materials and Mechanisms of 
Superconductivity and High Temperature Superconductors (M2S-HTSC-VIII) 
will be held in Dresden Germany from July 9 to July 14, 2006. This 
conference follows conferences previously held in Interlaken, Switzerland 
(1988), Palo Alto, USA (1989), Kanazawa, Japan (1991), Grenoble, France 
(1994), Beijing, China (1997), Houston, USA (2000), and Rio de Janeiro, 
Brazil (2003). The M2S-HTSC Conference series can be traced back to the "
d- and f-band" superconductivity conferences that were held in Rochester, 
USA (1971), Gatlinburg, USA (1973), Rochester, USA (1976), La Jolla, USA 
(1979), Karlsruhe, Germany (1982), and Ames, USA (1984).

The conference in Dresden is again dedicated to all aspects of 
superconductivity and related phenomena. The focus will be around 
materials, properties and mechanisms. Besides the cuprates, other new 
oxide superconductors such as the ruthenates and cobaltades have emerged. 
Borides, borocarbides, doped fullerenes, organic superconductors, and 
heavy fermion superconductors will also form an important part of the 
program. The synthesis of these superconductors, the characterization of 
their physical properties and applications will be an integral part of 
the conference. The understanding of the mechanism(s) for unconventional 
superconductivity has been a key issue in condensed matter physics and 
material science for many years.

All formal conference sessions and an exciting exhibition will take place 
at the new Conference Centre, which is conveniently located in close 
proximity to the conference hotels in downtown Dresden. The centre is 
situated next to the Elbe river in one of the most beautiful areas of 
the city of Dresden. Together with other settings along the Elbe river, 
this area has recently been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. 
Besides "Europe's balcony", as Goethe called baroque Dresden, which 
offers European cultural and art treasures, magnificent baroque 
buildings, world-famous art collections, lively theatre and music, 
there are several possibilities for tours around Dresden to several 
castles and to the beautiful landscape of Swiss Saxony.

"See you in Dresden!"


The 8th International Conference on Materials and Mechanisms of 
Superconductivity and High Temperature Superconductors (M2S-HTSC-VIII) 
in Dresden is dedicated essentially to superconductivity and related 
phenomena, and to the host materials of these phenomena. The conference 
follows a series of meetings, established in 1988 in Interlaken, two 
years after the discovery of high-Tc superconductivity. The M2S-HTSC 
Conference Series evolved from the 1984 M2S Conference and the preceding 
d- and f-Band Superconductivity Conferences dating back to the early
