The glassy state is not confined to only structural components of materials. Disorder in magnetic and dielectric materials lead to novel properties as well as presenting different possible probes to study disorder. Topics in this session can include theoretical and experimental aspects of disordered materials such as spin glasses (metallic, insulating, and semiconducting), ferroelectrics (i.e. relaxors), and glasses with magnetic components (i.e. magnetite), for example. Theoretical works to understand the behavior of the freezing temperature and imaging studies (i.e. MFM, PFM) to visualize the electromagnetic structural disorder are encouraged.
