Abstract : The Workshop consisted of six sessions. The first session included talks on magnetic phase transitions in both bulk materials and in magnetic superlattices and on certain types of magnetic excitations. The second session concerned magnetooptic materials and their applications in practical devices. The third session was devoted to magnetic resonance and the control of chaos arising from spin wave instabilities. The fourth session featured the experimental and theoretical aspects of soliton propagation in magnetic systems. The fifth session was devoted to the phenomenon of giant magnetoresistance and its applications. The sixth session involved additional talks on magnetic solitons and other nonlinear magnetic excitations. The Workshop closed with a panel discussion on important issues and future prospects. All comments indicate that the Workshop was a great success in providing a stimulating atmosphere for the exchange of the latest information and enabling graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to interact with the leading figures in the field.
