"Migaku Award" Best Poster Award
The Migaku Award is funded by a donation from Prof. Migaku Takahashi's family after he passed away in 2014. Their will is to use this fund for activating the Asian Union of Magnetics Societies (AUMS) community. As one of the key members, the late Prof. Migaku Takahashi established AUMS on January 1st in 2009. He passionately tried to tie Asian countries for the goal of AUMS, that is, promoting the advancement in magnetism, magnetic materials, and applications for the area of research, development, and education. "Migaku Award" is named from his first name with a hope for young researchers to take over Prof. Migaku Takahashi's mind-set to pursue his/her own goal.
The fund for the Migaku Award is managed by the Magnetics Society of Japan (MSJ). The Migaku Award (Best Poster Award) is given by The Asian Union of Magnetics Societies to encourage the presentation of papers by students. These competitions recognize and encourage excellence in graduate studies in the field of magnetism.
