Welcome to Euromar 2014
Euromar 2014 will be held at ETH Zürich, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. The two most recent Nobel Prizes
related to Magnetic Resonance were awarded to scientists whose scientific home was ETH Zürich, in 1991 to Richard
R. Ernst "for his contributions to the development of the methodology of high resolution nuclear magnetic resonance
(NMR) spectroscopy" and in 2002 to Kurt Wüthrich "for his development of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy for
determining the three-dimensional structure of biological macromolecules in solution". Today, method development in
all major branches of magnetic resonance, liquid- and solid-state NMR and EPR spectroscopy as well as MRI, is pursued
at ETH Zürich.
The conference will commence in the historic main building of ETH Zürich, designed by Gottfried Semper, who was
also a Professor at ETH, then called the Polytechnikum. You can expect nice views from the terrace on Lake Zürich,
Üetliberg, and the Alps and you will be close to the many pubs of picturesque Niederdorf, as the part of Zürich's
old town right of the Limmat river is called.
The aim of the EUROMAR 2014 is to present the latest scientific
breakthroughs in magnetic resonance and to stimulate discussion and collaboration, true to the motto of Groupement
AMPERE „se connaître, s'entendre, s'entraider“, to get to know each other, to listen to each other, to aid one another.
On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, let me cordially welcome you to Euromar 2014 in Zürich.
