Scope of the Conference

The MT25 conference is the most important international forum addressing all aspects of magnet research, development, construction, testing, and operation.


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 a permanent magnetic 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.


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.
