First Announcement: EUROMAR 2013



Dear Colleagues, 

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to EUROMAR 2013, the 9th European Magnetic Resonance Conference that will be organized on the island of Crete/Greece, by the National Center for Scientific Research “Demokritos”. 

The conference will take place between 30th June to 5th July at the Creta Maris Convention Center, a modern facility situated 25 km from the Heraklion International Airport and adjacent to the town of Hersonissos. 

EUROMAR 2013 will bring together distinguished scientists of the magnetic Resonance field in the unique location of Crete that combines Mediterranean landscape with world-renowned historical sites and a rich cultural heritage. The conference will cover all aspects of Magnetic Resonance theory, methodology and applications. The 5-day scientific program will run in three parallel sessions and will be structured around lectures of distinguished invited speakers and oral presentations of selected high-quality abstracts. 

Representative topics include: 

Biosolids, Theory and Computation, Liquid State NMR Methods, Materials and Processes, Transport and Diffusion, Proteins and Nucleic Acids, Metabolomics, Imaging, in Cell and in Vivo studies, Paramagnetic Systems, EPR Methods and Applications, Solid State NMR Methods, Relaxation and Dynamics, Sensitivity Enhancement, Small Molecules and Pharmaceuticals, New Methodologies and Instrumentation Advances, Solid State Physics, Industrial and Cultural Applications. 

Confirmed plenary speakers include: 

Anja Boeckmann (Institute of Biology and Chemistry of Proteins, France) 
Dmitri Budker (University of California Berkeley, U.S.A.) 
Isabella Felli (University of Florence, Italy) 
Daniella Goldfarb (Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel) 
Stephen Hill (NHMFL/ Florida State University, U.S.A.) 
Arno Kentgens (Radbour University, The Netherlands) 
Dominique Massiot (CEMHTI-CNRS, France) 
Alex Pines (University of California Berkeley, U.S.A.) 
Graham Smith (University of St Andrews, United Kingdom) 
Yi-Qiao Song (Schlumberger-Doll Research, U.S.A) 
Shimon Vega (Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel) 
Peter van Zijl (Kennedy Krieger Institute, U.S.A.) 
Charalampos (Babis) Calodimos (Rutgers University, U.S.A.) 

Key dates: 

Conference Registration Opens 01/12/2012 
Early Registration Closes 01/04/2013 
Deadline for Oral Submission 01/05/2013

Website: 

The website of the conference is http://www.euromar2013.org/index.html and is being constantly enriched with the necessary information on the conference, the venues and traveling to Crete. 

I believe that the attractive setting of Crete together with EUROMAR’s high scientific level will provide an excellent forum for rewarding discussions and exchanges between magnetic resonance researchers from around the world. 

Looking forward to welcoming you in Crete, 

Georgios Papavassiliou 
Chairman 
EUROMAR 2013 Conference
