[NMR] Please join us for PERM 2020 the first Parahydrogen Enhanced Resonance Meeting


(Virtual) Parahydrogen Enhanced Resonance Meeting 2020
1st annual PERM, Monday, July 27th- Wednesday, July 29th on Zoom

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the first annual Parahydrogen Enhanced Resonance Meeting, PERM 2020. The first instance of this (PERManent) meeting will be online with the benefit of zero registration cost. Not only are we making hyperpolarization affordable, but also the scientific conferences that go along with it! The meeting will feature invited educational talks, promoted research talks, plus brief “power pitches” that may provide previews to virtual poster sessions organized in parallel zoom meetings. (Food and Drinks will have to be provided privately.) All recorded materials will be made publicly available on a PERM YouTube channel within 2 weeks after the conference. Students (and those new to parahydrogen-enhanced NMR/MRI) are especially encouraged to participate!
Please submit an abstract (pdf format) with a maximum of 300 words in 12pt font along with 1 Figure (plus title and author list) to the PERM Organization Committee by Monday, June 1st 2020 – detailed abstract instructions will be posted on the conference web-site soon. Please indicate whether you are willing to have your lecture/power pitch recorded. If yes, your recorded lecture will be featured on the conference’s YouTube channel (PERManently).

Important dates:
Abstract Deadline: Monday, June 1st
Invitations for Presentations: Monday, June 22nd
Acceptance Deadline: Wednesday, July 1st
Registration Closes: Monday, July 20th

Notice that exact presentation times will take into account presenters time zones. Relax, we will not make you give a talk in your nighttime! It’s a jet-lag free conference. Welcome to the future! Submit your abstracts at Finally, we encourage you to forward this message to any other scientists and students who may be interested.

Sincerely, your PERM Organization Committee.
