International Workshop on Magnetic Particle Imaging

6th IWMPI: 16-18 March 2016 in Lübeck, Germany

The 6th International Workshop on Magnetic Particle Imaging, IWMPI 2016, will be held on 16-18 March 2016 in Lübeck. Started in 2010 and 2012 at the University of Lübeck, the workshop takes place for the 6th time after visiting Istanbul in 2015, Berlin in 2014 and Berkeley in 2013. The workshop will provide the opportunity to present research work, results, but also new ideas and directions in the field of Magnetic Particle Imaging to a highly interested audience of scientific, medical and application experts from university, clinical and commercial sites active in the field.

Since the first workshop in 2010, the International Workshop on MPI (IWMPI) has been the premier forum for researchers working in the MPI field. The workshop aims at covering the status and recent developments of both the instrumentation and the tracer material, as they are equally important in designing a well performing MPI system. The main topics presented at the workshop include hardware developments, image reconstruction and systems theory, nanoparticle physics and theory, nanoparticle synthesis, spectroscopy, patient safety, and medical/research applications of MPI. Over the years, the attendance to the workshop increased from around 70 attendees in 2010 to over 200 researchers this past year. 

We encourage you and your colleagues to contribute your research and results to IWMPI, where you will have an opportunity to interact and collaborate with the greater MPI community, and to take steps in advancing the field of MPI. The workshop will provide a great opportunity to present your research results, as well as to learn more about the technical aspects and clinical potential of MPI.
