CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

The International Bologna Meeting on Magnetic Resonance in Porous Media biennial conference series, inaugurated in 1990, addresses the development and application of magnetic resonance techniques to porous media and regularly attracts delegates from both academia and industry from across the world.

MRPM11 was hosted from 9th to 13th September 2012 by the Department of Physics at the University of Surrey, Guildford UK, and incorporated the Colloquium on Mobile MR (CMMR), aimed at communicating recent developments and applications of mobile magnetic resonance.

MRPM11 was organised under the auspices of the Groupement AMPERE working in association with the Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna.

CONFERENCE SESSIONS

Conference sessions covered the following areas:

  • behaviour of fluids and their interactions in natural and artificial materials, including: energy and related materials; polymeric materials; cells, gels and soft matter; nano-structured materials; soils and earth sciences; bio-medical and DNP; multi-dimensional NMR; food and pharmaceuticals; the built environment
  • innovative techniques and applications to characterise structure, including hyperpolarisation and field cycling
  • new data acquisition and processing techniques; sensitivity enhancement
  • mobile MR

PRIZES

The Giulio Cesare Borgia Prize for Young Researchers is awarded to the emerging scientist who, based on a presentation to the community at the conference, shows greatest promise for future scientific leadership. The Prize has been established in memory of the contribution made by Giulio Cesare Borgia to the development of Magnetic Resonance in Porous Media and for the particular attention he always paid to the enthusiasm, passion, and courage of young people who undertook the difficult and adventurous path of scientific investigation in this fascinating area of research.


The winner of the Borgia Prize awarded at MRPM11 was Dr Jonathan Mitchell of the University of Cambridge for his outstanding contributions to the development of cryoporometry, multi-dimensional relaxation experiments and understanding of the impact of internal magnetic field gradients.


The Institute of Physics BRSG: Magnetic Resonance Group Founder's Prize will be awarded for the best poster presentation at the conference by a young scientist.


The IOP: BRSG MRG Founder's Prize 2012 was awarded to Stefanie Eriksson of Lund University, Sweden.



PROCEEDINGS

A book of abstracts of all accepted presentations will be distributed at the conference.
