Spin dependent transport has been the object of intense research since the demonstration of magnetoresistive effects in metallic multilayers and magnetic tunnel junctions. The field has evolved to the extent that commercial applications for magnetic recording and electronic memory are now available. This was celebrated in 2007 with the Nobel prize to Albert Fert and Peter Grunberg. In the last few years the range of materials used for spin-devices has witnessed a dramatic broadening. Among others silicon, graphene and organic semiconductors have recently focused considerable efforts of the community. This symposium will be focused on the experimental and theoretical aspects of various spintronic phenomena with particular emphasis on material issues.
