General

Welcome

It is my pleasure to invite you to the 2019 Magnet Technology Conference MT26. The MT conference series is the most important international forum addressing all aspects of magnet research, development, construction, testing, and operation. The focus lies in superconducting technology, but resistive magnets are also covered. We expect an attendance of around 1000 of the top scientists and engineers involved in research and development of magnets throughout the world.

Vancouver will be host city for the Magnet Technology Conference MT26 in 2019. TRIUMF, Canada’s national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics, will be the host organization. The tradition of past MTs will be continued in a convenient downtown location: just 25 minutes from the airport YVR by public transport, all accommodations, restaurants and attractions in downtown are in walking distance.

Peer-reviewed papers submitted by conference attendees will be published in a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity (TAS).

We are looking forward to a diverse and exciting conference program and invite you to come numerously.

About Vancouver

The city of Vancouver is located on the mainland of North America, in the southwest corner of British Columbia, which is the westernmost of Canada's ten provinces. It is bordered by the Pacific Ocean and the Coastal range mountains, providing plenty outdoor activities, winter and summer. It is being said Vancouver is the only major city where you can go skiing and take a dip in the ocean on the very same day (without freezing too much). Having hosted the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, it offers rich cultural diversity, spectacular scenery, world-class meeting facilities and a wealth of amenities. Conference venues, accommodation, restaurants, theatres, and recreational opportunities are readily available in this beautiful Pacific Coast location. Vancouver has all of the services necessary to accommodate every need and ensure that MT26 is a success. The city has an international reputation of being a great place to host conferences.

Scope of the Conference
The MT26 Conference is the most important international forum addressing all aspects of magnet research, development, construction, testing, and operation.

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.

The subject of the conference 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 electro-magnetic 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.

  • Publications related to the magnet-supporting technologies must contain sufficient description of the magnet device itself, or address specific issues of the interfacing the magnet unit or component with the rest of system, or description of the uniqueness about a magnet or its component for the particular system application.
  • Generic study of a non-magnet technology, system or device that fail to incorporate at least one of the criteria above might or might not be accepted for presentation at the Magnet Technology Conference
