TMRC 2021 Virtual Platform

  • TMRC 2021 is running virtually using the Pheedloop platform (
  • Please note that the official conference registration site (TMRC 2021 Registration) is not through Pheedloop.
  • All TMRC 2021 registered users are provided credentials to sign into the Pheedloop virtual event platform. This will be done via the email provided in the registration as registrations take place.
  • Folks registering through the official conference site (TMRC 2021 Registration) once the conference has started will be provided Pheedloop credentials on a timely basis. Unfortunately, this process is not fully automated so we will make every effort to frequently monitor the registration status and issue Pheedloop log-in credentials throughout the development of the conference.
  •  Once registered for the conference, should you need assistance accessing the Pheedloop virtual site for TMRC 2021, please contact Chloë Mattingly (, Ben Friedman ( or Tianxiang Du (

Joining the TMRC 2021 Virtual Platform:
After registering for the conference, with the log-in credentials we will email you, you will need to open your browser and go to

The welcoming screen will look like this:


You will need to enter the email address you used to register, and the password provided by us via email in the corresponding fields.

Once in, the TMRC2021 Virtual Portal will look like this:


You will be able to join live sessions and also listen to on-demand recordings of the talks at your convenience. Many talks are already available at the start of the conference (pre-recorded), and some will become available after the live sessions are completed.

Please note that the virtual portal will remain open for a few weeks after the official end of the conference.

Conference Registration is now open! Register here.

Conference Information

The 32nd Magnetic Recording Conference (TMRC 2021) will be held VIRTUALLY August 16-19, 2021. The focus of TMRC 2021 is Solid State Magnetic Memory and Recording Technologies for >3 Tbits/in2. 

For more information regarding the virtual platform, please click here.

Approximately 36 invited papers of the highest quality will be presented orally at the conference and will later be published in the IEEE Transactions on Magnetics. What used to be the poster session will now be a contributed session to be presented in standard oral format. Presenters of invited & contributed talks are encouraged for publication.

Topics of interest include:

Solid State Memory – Devices and Applications

  • Spin Transfer Torque-Magnetic Random Access Memory (MTJ cell, MRAM chip manufacturing and roadmap)
  • MRAM– New Physics & Materials (MRAM architecture, VC-MRAM, SOT-MRAM, TI & 2D materials)
  • Magnetic Logic

    Advanced Generation Recording Technologies
  • Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR System, Head/Media and HDI)
  • Microwave-Assisted Magnetic Recording (MAMR), Energy-Assisted Magnetic Recording (EAMR)
  • Alternative Magnetic Recording Technologies (SMR, TDMR, HIMR, Heated-dot, Tape, All Optical Switching)
  • Advanced Magnetic Recording for > 3 Tbits/in2 including Readers, Writers, Servo, Tribology, HDI, Signal Processing

    Recording and Memory Fundamentals (Metrology, Tooling, Materials, Recording Physics)
