A message from the International EPR Society

Below is a message from the International EPR Society to members for the EPR and Magnetic Resonance Community. I typically don't post these kind of advertisements but I do believe the International EPR Society has done a lot of great work for the community over the many years.

Take a look at https://www.ieprs.org. Membership fees are very low and the EPR Newsletter is a nice treat.



Dear EPR users,

To continue to have a vibrant, diverse, and active EPR community, we will all benefit from a scientific organization that offers a support and communication infrastructure for EPR -- this is what the International EPR Society (https://www.ieprs.org) aspires to offer. 

The most familiar faces of IES may be the EPR Newsletters and the Silver and Gold Medals for EPR. 

IES is the only international scientific organization that represents the whole range of important research fields of electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy and EPR imaging (EMRI). These methods are used as the main research tools over a very wide range of fields, including physics, chemistry, life sciences, materials research and medicine.

IES is a world-wide association of scientists, and the IES mailing list serves the community to help spread EPR-related information (jobs, post-doc and PhD positions, conferences, etc.) to the world-wide EPR community. It provides public networking, available to IES members, where one can post messages via the EPR Newsletter (EPRNL), the official IES publication. EPRNL not only provides information on the availability of second-hand EPR instrumentation, it also publishes advertisements of prominent manufacturers of EPR instrumentation.

Members of IES have free access to the EPRNL! See: http://www.epr-newsletter.ethz.ch

IES also awards prizes and honors for outstanding contributions to EPR spectroscopy, from senior to young investigators! The newly created IES poster prizes honor excellent young scientists and PhD students for their contributions to international EPR conferences. All these achievements are reported in the EPRNL, and you can find more about "Why IES" here: http://www.ieprs.org/whyjoin.php

The member fees are encouragingly low: $6/year for students, $12/year for emeritus and post-doctoral fellows, and $36/year for full members. We will be happy if you paid the membership dues for several years. See: http://www.apes-ies2018.org/registration
Your membership of the IES is what will keep IES relevant, vibrant and impactful, and give IES the necessary tools to be responsive to the ever emerging field of EPR spectroscopy. 

Sincerely,
Songi Han, Vice President (America) of IES
Thomas Prisner, President of IES
