38th Annual Condensed Matter and Materials Meeting, New Zealand, 2014

Waiheke Island Resort, Waiheke, Auckland, New Zealand

4th – 7th February 2014

The 38th Annual Condensed Matter and Materials Meeting was held at Waiheke Island, Auckland, New Zealand, from 4-7 February, 2014. There were 87 attendees, including international visitors [France, Germany, USA, Taiwan]. A total of 11 invited and 28 contributed oral papers were presented during the two and one half days of scientific sessions. There were also two sessions with a total of 42 poster presentations. All presenters were invited to submit a manuscript (six pages for invited papers and four for contributed papers) for publication in the conference proceedings. Each manuscript was refereed by at least two anonymous reviewers who worked to a set of guidelines made available by the editor. Each accepted publication therefore satisfies the requirements for classification as a refereed conference publication (E1). The organizers would like to thank the reviewers for their time and effort in reviewing manuscripts, which resulted in 8 papers being accepted for publication.  Simply click on the paper title to view the abstract.
