Program Summary

The MT25 conference is the international forum addressing all aspects of magnet research, development, construction, testing, and operation. MT25 is a 5 days conference starting on Sunday evening with a welcome reception, 4 days with presentation and exhibitions, and ending on the Friday with tours.

Sessions start at 8:45 each morning and finish around 18:30 in the late afternoon, and are separated by several refreshment breaks and lunch. The program includes 8 plenary sessions highlighting catching topics of general interest. Each morning and afternoon there are oral presentations in 3 parallel sessions while posters are presented in a daily session.

In parallel during all four days, there is a technical exhibition with 40 to 50 companies expected to present their activities and products in the field of superconductors, superconducting and resistive magnets, materials and tools for magnet construction, as well as associated technologies for vacuum, cryogenics, powering, measurements, controls and much more.

Finally, on the Friday several technical tours will be organised and there will be time for exploring the city of Amsterdam and its surroundings.

The social events through the week include the Welcome Reception on Sunday evening, Exhibitors Reception on Tuesday evening and a boat tour through Amsterdam’s channels followed by the Conference Banquet in the Dutch Historical (built in 1656) National Maritime Museum.
