[NMR] 1st Conference on Zero and Ultra Low Field (ZULF) NMR

Dear colleagues,

We are happy to announce that the registration for the 1st Conference on Zero and Ultra-Low Field (ZULF) NMR is now open. The conference will take place from 1 to 4 September 2020 via videoconferencing and there is no registration fee. All the information and the registration link are available at

You are encouraged to participate in the Twitter poster session. The best posters will be awarded prizes, sponsored by Wiley and ISMAR. As the field is emerging, we encourage attendees to present also ideas that have not yet been realized.

The conference addresses students and postdocs as well as specialists across all areas of NMR spectroscopy and imaging with an interest in the field of ZULF NMR. The first half of the event consists of a series of lectures that cover the basics of ZULF NMR, to provide background and context for those working so far mainly in high-field NMR. The second half is dedicated to talks on current developments in ZULF NMR science and technology, given by leaders in the field.

The 1st ZULF Conference is fully organized by students of the European Training Network ZULF (, with the support of the consortium beneficiaries. We are excited about the unique opportunity that this conference offers to convey our enthusiasm for this field to others.

With kind regards,

Organizing Committee 1st ZULF Conference,
· V. S. Anjusha, Universität Ulm

Hands-on: 7 Hours

Day 1:  Lectures, 1 pm – 5 pm: Theoretical aspects of DNP

– Introduction to DNP-enhanced NMR

– Principles of Dissolution-DNP

– Low temperature DNP mechanisms

– Cross Polarization techniques

– Applications to imaging and chemistry

Day 2:  Lectures, 9 am – 12 am: Experimental aspects of DNP

– Hardware for DNP

– Hardware for Cross Polarization 

– Hardware for Dissolution

Experiments, 1 pm – 5 pm

– Sample Preparation

– Preparation of a dissolution DNP experiment

Day 3: Experiments, 9 am – 12 am: Practical DNP at the Laboratory of Biomolecular Magnetic Resonance (LRMB)

– Low temperature DNP

– Cross Polarization with DNP

– Dissolution DNP

Seminars, 1 pm – 5 pm

 – All participants are invited to give a short presentation, possibly on DNP and/or related to their own research subjects.

COST Meeting on “Paramagnetic relaxation and spin hyperpolarization”

From the Ampere Magnetic Resonance List

Dear colleagues, 

It is a great pleasure to announce the COST Meeting on Paramagnetic relaxation and spin hyperpolarization, which will be held at Institut Henry Poincare (Paris, France) on May 4-6, 2015.

This meeting is organized within the framework of the EU COST Action TD1103 “Hyperpolarization Physics and Methodology in NMR and MRI” ( It is a discussion meeting that joins two COST working groups: “Theory” (WG2) and “Relaxation” (WG3).

The meeting will be focused on spin relaxation processes in paramagnetic systems and their role in spin hyperpolarization experiments. Introductory talks of didactic character will be given by well-known specialists in the field:

  • Prof. Geoffrey Bodenhausen (EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland; Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, France)
  • Dr. Giuseppe Pileio (University of Southampton, UK)
  • Prof. Thomas Prisner (Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main, Germany)
  • Prof. Shimon Vega (Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel)

In addition, several oral contributions on the progress in the field are welcome with preference to early-stage researchers. The planned number of participants will guarantee lively discussions and informal communication.

You can find more information concerning accommodation, registration and program on the web-site of the meeting:

On behalf of the organizing committee,

Konstantin Ivanov.
