We will be there from Monday 7 March at 08h15 in front of the meeting room at the Hotel Princesa Plaza. The meeting room location will be marked with signs located at the left part of the hotel lobby.
To reach the Hotel from the airport, please check the best connection on google maps depending on your arrival schedule. Check the arrival terminal and go from there to Princesa Plaza Madrid, C. de la Princesa, 40, 28008 Madrid, Metro Argüelles. Using public transport (train or subway), the journey takes between 38 to 50 minutes. Using taxi, it takes about 30 minutes, depending on the traffic. The taxi fare is fixed to 30 € (fare from the airport to anywhere inside the M-30 road). All information about Madrid at https://www.esmadrid.com/en.
We will organize a guided walk on the city of Madrid on Tuesday afternoon. Workshop dinner will be at Cafe de Oriente on Tuesday 8th March. Further details will be provided in due course.
Aims and scope
The control over electronic properties at nanoscopic length scales unveils new features in superconductors. These will be key to develop superconducting devices with improved functionalities for computation or for current carrying applications. The workshop aims to gather experts addressing the problem of nanoscale superconductivity from different perspectives. We will discuss the most pressing problems in basic superconductivity, with a focus on phenomena that occur at the nanoscale, either at tunneling barriers, interfaces, pinning centers, inhomogeneities, reduced dimensionality nanowires or two-dimensional layers and address recent advances in superconducting devices close to applications.
Topics include but are not limited to:
- Iron based and cuprate superconductivity
- Superconductivity in two dimensional materials
- Current carrying applications
- Josephson junction devices
- High frequency detectors and resonators
- Proximity induced superconductivity in semiconducting nanowires and related devices
- SQUID technology
- Hybrid superconducting devices
- Interface superconductivity
- Devices for quantum computation
- Electronic correlations
The meeting will be held on a hybrid format.
Meeting will start on Monday 07 March at 09h00 and will end on Wednesday 09 March at 16h30.
Hotel reservation is to be organized by each participant. Participants will cover the hotel expenses by themselves. In case of reimbursal by COST, the usual conditions will apply. The hotel reservation should be made through this form which needs to be sent directly to the hotel by each participant as soon as possible. When sending the form, please put firstname.lastname@example.org in cc. The reservation will include separate prizes for each day, including full board on Monday 07, and half board on Tuesday 08 and Wednesday 09 March.
There will be a conference dinner offered by the organization on Tuesday 8 March. Coffee breaks will be also covered by the organization.
Local participants not spending nights at the hotel should write separately to email@example.com before 1 March 2022.
Participants with accompanying persons please contact asap firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMPORTANT TRAVEL INFORMATION. REMEMBER THAT IT IS YOUR OWN RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK YOURSELF REGULARLY FOR CHANGES IN THE REGULATIONS AND TO TAKE ALL NEEDED PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES (travel and cancellation insurance, etc). Information and requirements for travelling to Spain is available here. The hotel will charge you one night in case of cancellation after 4th March, even if the cancellation is due to COVID. Please take this into account when organizing your cancellation insurance.
Registration and Abstract

About the picture above
The statue of King Philip IV is a masterpiece of balance, a difficult composition made by Pietro Tacca, who based his work on a design by Velázquez. Galileo Galilei acted as a scientific advisor, providing the calculations to achieve this difficult position. Credit: wikipedia.
