11th Alpine Conference

The 11th Alpine Conference on Magnetic Resonance in Solids will take place in Chamonix Mont-Blanc (France) from the 15th to the 19th September 2019.
The members of the Scientific Committee for this edition include Lucio Frydman, Arno Kentgens and Tatyana Polenova.

List of Talks

The list of speakers is now available online.  On the Program page, you will find the alphabetical list of the speakers who have accepted to give an oral presentation, as well as the title of their talk (the detailed program will not be available before the conference starts).

Registration and abstract submission are now closed !

The registration to the 10th Alpine Conference is now closed, but you can still register on the waiting list. You will be able to validate your registration if a place opens up.

Alpine 10 – On-line registration is opened !

Deadline for registration : 31 May 2017

Alpine 10 – Invited Speakers

We are happy to announce that the following speakers have already accepted to participate: Sharon Ashbrook (St Andrews, UK), Clare Grey (Cambridge, UK), Arno P.M. Kentgens (Nijmegen, NL), Guido Pintacuda (Lyon, F), Tatyana Polenova (Newark, DE), Jeffrey A. Reimer (Berkeley, CA), Chad Rienstra (Urbana, IL), and Robert Tycko (Bethesda, MD).

Alpine 9 – External Lecture

A highlight special lecture will be delivered by Jonathan N. Coleman.


Welcome to our Round-Tables!

As a new feature of the Alpine Conference, poster sessions will be replaced with round-table sessions dedicated to discussions on key themes selected from the abstracts submitted to our Scientific Committee. Each of you will have the opportunity to present your piece of work to a selected audience! Before the conference starts, every participant will be asked to vote for the abstracts that they would like to learn about, and the scientific program of these sessions will be built from their choice.
 The conference will start from 4 pm on Sunday 10th September, with registration, followed by a dinner for all the participants at 7 pm.
 The scientific talks will start on Monday morning at 8:30 am.
 The last session will finish at 12:30 pm on Thursday 14th September
