MT-28 Magnet Conference opens

Nearly 1,000 people are taking part in the first International Conference on Magnet Technology to be organized in person since the Covid pandemic.

Some of the invited talks are taking place in the auditorium of the music academy, or ''conservatoire'' of Aix-en-Provence. (Click to view larger version...)
Some of the invited talks are taking place in the auditorium of the music academy, or ''conservatoire'' of Aix-en-Provence.
This morning, scientists and engineers from more than 30 countries woke up to the start of the 28th International Conference on Magnet Technology in Aix-en-Provence, France, just 30 minutes from the ITER site. The venues are operating at maximum capacity with 900 registered week-long participants, plus day passes. Nearly 20 percent of participants are students.

"As the first fully in-person conference since Covid, special attention has been given to providing as many opportunities for in-person exchange as possible, for example through roundtable discussions, large spaces for poster sessions, and meeting places," says Program Chairman Thierry Schild, a magnet specialist from ITER.

The MT-28 Conference is providing a forum for the exchange of magnet-related technology and design techniques, the diffusion in the scientific community of new applications for magnets, and interaction between research activities and industrial applications. (Click to view larger version...)
The MT-28 Conference is providing a forum for the exchange of magnet-related technology and design techniques, the diffusion in the scientific community of new applications for magnets, and interaction between research activities and industrial applications.
In addition to five days of lectures, presentations, poster sessions, and short courses, 43 companies and academic partners are showcasing their technologies as part of an industrial exhibition. Fully half of participants (500 people) will have the opportunity to visit the ITER site as part of a guided tour.

The conference was opened this morning by ITER Deputy Director-General for Science & Technology Yutaka Kamada, who presented ITER Project status.

We'll have reports on the conference in the next edition(s) of the ITER Newsline.
