September 22 - 27, 2019

International Conference on Magnet Technology


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 around 1000 of the top scientists and engineers involved in research and development of the magnets throughout the World.

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.


Ruediger Picker, Conference Chair

Travel / Hotel

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.

MT26 is organizing a tour of TRIUMF following the conference on Friday, September 27.  TRIUMF is home to the world’s largest cyclotron particle accelerator and a system of high-energy rare isotope beams that enable a diversity of efforts in nuclear and particle physics, accelerator science, life science research and more!  Tour participants get first-hand experience with many of TRIUMF’s experiments and facilities as we follow the path of the proton from its origin bound in a hydration atom to its destination in targets and detectors.


The tour will last 60 minutes, with time for Q&A and photography throughout.  The tour fee is $25 CAD, and includes bus transportation between the Hyatt Regency Vancouver Downtown and TRIUMF.  Please select this option when you register for the conference online if you are planning to attend.  Sign-ups at the conference will be made on a first-come, first-served basis based on availability until 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 26, 2019.


The MT26 Conference is the international forum addressing all aspects of magnet research, development, construction, testing, and operation. MT26 is a 5 days conference starting on Sunday evening with a Welcome Reception, 5 days with presentations, 3 days with exhibits, and ending on the Friday afternoon with a TRIUMF lab tour.


Sessions start at 8:00 AM each morning and finish around 6:30 PM except for Friday. The program includes 7 plenary sessions highlighting catching topics of general interest as well as poster and oral sessions. An Exhibitor Reception will be held Monday evening and the Banquet will be held Wednesday evening. Friday will end with a tour to visit the TRIUMF laboratory.


In parallel, Monday through Wednesday, there is a technical exhibition with up to 32 companies expected to present their activities and products in the field of superconductors, superconducting and resistive magnets, materials and tools for magnet construction, as well as associated technologies for vacuum, cryogenics, powering, measurements, controls and much more.
