Superconductivity is a fascinating quantum phenomenon with numerous useful applications, and it is of major interest both for its fundamental and technological point of view. Since the discovery of superconductivity in the cuprates and recently in hydrides, an outburst of research activity was generated, yet a key challenge remained the understanding of mechanisms of (un)conventional superconductivity, still under debate in spite of advances in research and materials development.
 
Meanwhile many new superconductors have emerged, including ruthenates, cobaltates, borides, borocarbides, doped fullerenes and intercalated graphite, organic, heavy-fermion superconductors, and novel hydrides and related materials. They are all accompanied by in-depth characterization of their physical properties by means of a variety of experimental approaches and by successful applications in wires, tapes, processing in electronics and in novel nano-structured technologies.
 
In recent years novel families of unconventional superconductors have been discovered and have stimulated strong scientific interest: the Fe-based pnictides REFeAsO, MFe2As2, Fe(SeTe), where high-Tc superconductivity is occurring without the Cu ions (characteristic element in cuprates) and in the presence of Fe ions, suggesting in turn that magnetic interactions are the essential ingredients for the underlaying microscopic mechanism. Furthermore, latest progress in hydride superconductors will receive due attention as the latest progress is very encouraging.
 
This Conference follows those on the analogous topics in 1990, 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010, 2014, 2018 organized in the frame of CIMTEC. On one side it will highlight the progresses achieved along the last years in the various issues of fundamental and technological character of the already known superconducting materials. On another side, the Conference will be focused on the recently discovered materials, their characterization, synthesis and processing and the prospective applications. Following the mission of the previous conferences of this type, the focus will be on novel aspects, issues and systems, but attention will be paid as well to all superconducting-related topics, including fundamental aspects of theory, advances in synthesis, functionalization and processing and the latest progresses in the areas of the devices at  small scale and large scale ranges.
