The IEEE Magnetics Society promotes the advancement of science, technology, applications and training in magnetism. It fosters presentation and exchange of information among its members and within the global technical community, including education and training of young engineers and scientists. It seeks to nurture positive interactions between all national and regional societies acting in the field of magnetism. The Society maintains the highest standard of professionalism and technical competency.
As part of the Chicago Section, the MagSoc Chapter provides a local interface to the worldwide network of the IEEE. In addition, we organize technical presentations, social events, and networking opportunities of interest to the magnetics community across the Chicagoland. For further information or to find out about volunteer opportunities contact our officers below.

The awards aim to promote junior researchers area in their early career stages seeking for permanent academic positions, and to provide a platform to establish interactions and future collaborations in the area of Magnetics and Nanotechnology. The candidates are expected to demonstrate outstanding achievements in research in the discipline of Magnetics or Nanotechnology, and show potential to be successful in their future academic and research careers.
The nominated candidate:
- Should be currently working as a researcher, including both academic institute and industry, from the Greater Chicago area or its neighbor states (Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Kentucky)
- Should be not more than 7 years after completion of his/her Ph.D. degree
- Should have already shown outstanding scientific or technical achievements in Magnetics or Nanotechnology which has been significantly beyond the average performance at that career level.
- Does not need to be nominated by an IEEE member
