Applied Superconductivity Conference


ASC 2020 (in January 2021) - Housing Poacher Alert!

(11 May 2020)  ASC 2020 has been postponed until January 3-7, 2021, and conference registration and housing will open later this summer. In the meantime, we have been made aware of housing and trade show companies that may be aggressively pursuing you, or your company, to book your guest rooms through their company at supposedly significant discounts. These companies are trying to secure and solicit your credit card information.

Please be vigilant if approached by any company or service other than ASC 2020 and Centennial Conferences that implies or claims to be the "Official Housing Provider and/or Travel Agent" for the ASC 2020.

Reservations made through an agency other than ASC 2020 and Centennial Conferences will be at your own risk. If you are contacted by any company trying to sell hotel rooms, please notify Paula Pair at [email protected] immediately.

Thank you,

Centennial Conferences
ASC 2020 Conference Managers

SPECIAL UPDATE: ASC 2020 is postponed!

The Applied Superconductivity Conference Board and our partners in Tampa have agreed to postpone the ASC 2020 conference to January 3-7, 2021.

This is a really positive development, as we were quite concerned that the conference was going to have to be canceled outright due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Considerable planning is currently underway to accommodate this new conference date, and we’ll continue to send out more details as they become available. Our intent is to maintain as much of the existing conference structure as possible, and provide you with an equivalent if not enhanced conference experience. We are still planning on a full schedule.

Please do not book any hotel rooms or exhibitor services until we provide further information regarding the schedule and lodging. We anticipate re-opening registration and housing on 30 September 2020.

Authors, registered persons, exhibitors, sponsors, and supporters should expect additional message(s) with specific instructions related to the postponement, refunds, program, and other information.

We very much value your existing interest and commitment to ASC. We will do our best to keep the website updated with the latest information. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact [email protected].

We hope everybody is healthy and safe during these difficult times.

Warmest regards to all,

The ASC 2020 Conference Organizing Team

For more than five decades, ASC has been an important gathering point for the electronics, large scale, and materials fields within the applied superconductivity community. The 2020 theme, “Bringing Horizons into Clear View,” acknowledges the excitement of superconductivity and the predictions made in the past, the long journey many applications have taken to come to fruition, and the promising opportunities yet to come.
