September 22 - 27, 2019

International Conference on Magnet Technology

 

The MT conferece series is the most important international forum addressing all aspects of magnet research, development, consruction, testing, and operation. The focus lies in superconducting technology, but resistive magents are also covered. We expect around 1000 of the top scientists and engineers involved in research and development of the magnets throughout the World.

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.

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. Proceedings will be published in IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity.

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