APMRC 2012

Special Event


The Asia-Pacific Magnetic Recording Conference (APMRC) 2012 will be held at the Equarius Hotel, Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore from October 31 to November 2, 2012.

As the ninth of a successful series (1995: Singapore; 1998: Singapore; 2000: Japan; 2002: Singapore; 2004: Korea; 2006: Singapore; 2009: Singapore; 2010: Singapore), the APMRC 2012 takes on an exciting new look in 2012.

In conjunction with the 20th anniversary of the Data Storage Institute, the APMRC, which used to focus on the mechanical and manufacturing aspects of the hard disk drive, widens its scope to incorporate magnetic head, magnetic media, and signal processing technologies, making it the only conference worldwide that covers every technical aspect of the hard disk drive.  And to reach out to the greater data storage community, an inaugural APMRC Storage System, Hard Disk and Solid State Technologies Summit will be launched at the APMRC 2012.

Among other things, the APMRC 2012 will set the stage for in-depth discussion on green and ultra-high density magnetic recording in the multi-terabit per square inch regime.

The conference will consist of oral and poster sessions. Only invited papers (please download the Invited Speaker Nomination form) will be presented in the oral session while contributed papers will be presented in the poster session. As per the tradition of the APMRC, invited speakers will present their work in both oral and poster sessions.
