Scope of MT27

The MT27 Conference is the most important international forum addressing all aspects of magnet research, development, construction, testing, and operation.

The objective of the conference is to provide a forum for the exchange of coil and magnet related technology as well as design and analysis techniques, to diffuse in the scientific community new applications for coils and magnets, to provide an exchange between research activities and industrial applications, and to encourage professional scientists and engineers to follow careers in magnet technology and its applications.

The subject of the conference is the technology associated with the construction of coils and magnets. Coils can be part of devices for power, energy, transport and other applications. Magnets for generating magnetic field can either be of electro-magnetic nature comprising turns of a current carrying conductor or be of bulk material.

The scope includes structural and insulating materials, superconducting materials, normal conducting materials, cooling technology including cryogenics, power technology, design and analysis, instrumentation and measurement techniques, testing and operational experience.

  • Publications related to the magnet-supporting technologies must contain sufficient description of the magnet device itself, or address specific issues of the interfacing the magnet unit or component with the rest of system, or description of the uniqueness about a magnet or its component for the particular system application.
  • In particular, for submission to the category E “Magnet Technology for Power, Energy, Transport, and other Applications”, generic study of a non-magnet technology, system or device that fail to incorporate at least one of the criteria above might be the reason for rejection of presentation at the Magnet Technology Conference.
