25th International Conference on Magnet Technology

The 25th International Conference on Magnet Technology will take place in 2017 from August 27 to September 1 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The conference organization is a joint effort of the Applied Superconductivity and Cryogenics Laboratory at the University of Twente and the High Field Magnet Laboratory at the Radboud University Nijmegen.

Scope of the Conference

The International Conference on Magnet Technology is the most important international forum addressing all aspects of magnet research, development, construction, testing, and operation. The subject of the 2017 conference MT25 is the Technology associated with the construction of coils and magnets. Coils can be part of devices for power, energy, transport, and other applications. Magnets for generating magnetic field can either be of electromagnetic nature comprising turns of a current carrying conductor or be of a permanent magnetic material. The scope includes structural and insulating materials, superconducting materials, normal conducting materials, cooling technology including cryogenics, power technology, design and analysis, Instrumentation and measurement techniques, testing and operational experience.

The objective of the conference is to provide a forum for the exchange of coil and magnet-related technology as well as design and Analysis techniques, to diffuse in the scientific community new applications for coils and magnets, to provide an exchange between research activities and industrial applications, and to encourage professional scientists and engineers to follow careers in magnet technology and its applications.

Venue: RAI Congress Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Period: August 27 – September 1, 2017

Abstract Submission deadline: March 3, 2017

 User meeting 2017 in Nottingham

 The yearly user meeting of the European high field magnet facilities for

  • continuous fields (LNCMI Grenoble and HFML Nijmegen) and
  • pulsed magnetic fields (HLD Dresden and LNCMI Toulouse)

 will be hosted by Prof. Amalia Patanè (The University of Nottingham, UK) and will take place in the School of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Nottingham on Friday, June 23, 2017.

The aim of the meeting is to update our users on recent developments in the EMFL facilities, exchange ideas and experiences, present scientific results, and discuss possibilities for joint research programs and improving the facilities attractiveness.

During the meeting several talks will be given by the users and the directors of the EMFL to inform the user community about recent scientific and technical developments in high magnetic fields.  Users are also invited to present their scientific work on posters.

Registration is free of charge.

We would like to involve you, our users, in the process of defining the meeting‘s agenda; please inform us of the specific needs in terms of new equipment or facility developments you have today or may have in the future, so that we could provide you with the corresponding information during the meeting. Do not hesitate to suggest themes that you would like to discuss during the meeting.

The User Committee has an online feedback form for all users: www.emfl.eu/user/user-committee.html

Also, users can contact the User Committee directly via e-mail: UserCommittee@gmail.com

The User Committee will meet with the users during the day. Chair of the User Committee is Prof. Raivo Stern (National Institute of Chemical Physics & Biophysics, Tallinn, Estonia).
