The Young Investigators in Magnetic Resonances (YIMRs) workshop is a scientific event organized by early-career researchers for their peers. The event aims at facilitating the exchange of scientific knowledge and expertise between PhDs, postdocs, and early-career researchers and at building a network between future generations of researchers in this field.

The workshop will be hosted at the University of Konstanz on 21-22 September 2023. To encourage the scientific exchange, all participants are invited to submit an abstract either for poster or oral presentation. Both the poster sessions and the talks will be moderated to facilitate the scientific exchange between attendees with different backgrounds. 

We invite PhD students, Postdoctoral researchers and early/career group leaders from all over the world.

Invited speakers: JProf. Dr. Müge Kasanmascheff (CCB - TU Dortmund), Dr. Andrea Capozzi (EPFL, Losanne).

ISMAR-sponsored: AILM2022: International Conference on Advanced Isotopic Labeling Methods

Start date: September 13, 2022
End date: September 16, 2022
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Sponsored Events

conference dates: Sep 13-16, 2022
location: Grenoble, France

AILM2022 will focus on the development of isotopic labelling techniques and their application to the study of biomolecular structure and dynamics. Conference sessions will cover developments in isotopic labelling strategies for NMR spectroscopy, as well as methodological approaches, such as co-expression, segmental labelling, specific labelling, labelling with paramagnetic tags, and sample production in vitro or in eukaryotic cells. The program will also include elegant examples of the application of these methods to challenging systems such as high molecular weight proteins and nucleic acids complexes or direct studies of biomacromolecules in cells or tissues.

AILM2022 will be held in Grenoble, a renowned centre for European Structural Biology located in the heart of the French Alps. The goal of AILM2022 is to provide a stimulating and educational forum in which participants could exchange ideas on the latest scientific breakthroughs in the use of stable isotopes in integrated structural biology.

ISMAR-sponsored: 1st Pudong NMR Forum (Shanghai)

Date: November 12, 2022
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Sponsored Events

conference date: November 12, 2022
location: Shanghai Tech University

To promote the research on the application of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy in Pudong area and the greater Shanghai region, ShanghaiTech University will hold the 1st Pudong Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Forum on campus on
October 15, 2022.

This forum will be a one-day in-person regional symposium, organized by School of Life Science and Technology, School of Physical Science and Technology, and iHuman Institute of ShanghaiTech, and co-organized by National Center for Protein Science
(Shanghai) (NCPSS). It is co-sponsored by International Society of Magnetic Resonance (ISMAR). The forum is mainly towards the students. We will select the best presentation from the student attendees for a JMR award. The poster awards will also be given. Both types of awards are sponsored by ISMAR.

ISMAR-sponsored: 61st Rocky Mountain Conference on Magnetic Resonance – Solid-State NMR Symposium

Start date: July 25, 2022
End date: July 29, 2022
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Sponsored Events

conference dates: July 25-29, 2022
conference location: Copper Mountain, Colorado

The Rocky Mountain conference started as a meeting on Analytical chemistry involving SSNMR, EPR and analytical techniques. In 2010 the meeting was focused solely on Magnetic Resonance and included SSNMR and EPR sessions, where SSNMR meetings take place once in two years, alternating with the Alpine European meeting. It is the largest SSNMR meeting in North America and attracts researches involving both theory, methods and applications. The meeting supports special prizes: The Laura Marinelli Award ( for an excellent poster presentation by a student/post-doc, and the Vaughan Lecturer (, which is awarded to a leading scientist in the field of SSNMR. The identity of the winner is only exposed in the meeting, and past recipients include many leading scientist in the field. A session is dedicated to the Vaughan lecturer, who gets to select several speakers. The meeting also awards travel stipends for students in order to encourage their participation.


ISMAR-sponsored: EMBO practical course on Structure, Dynamics and Function of Biological Macromolecules by NMR

Start date: August 5, 2022
End date: August 12, 2022
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Sponsored Events

conference dates: August 5-12, 2022
Biozentrum Basel, Switzerland

The intention of the course is to provide practical training in important aspects of structural and dynamical analysis by NMR. The emphasis will be on setting up experiments on the spectrometer (optimizing parameters, pulse programs), on processing and analyzing the NMR data and on structure calculations in a hands-on fashion. It is impossible to also teach all the necessary theoretical background of modern NMR experiments in a few days. Therefore, the course is aimed at PhD students and postdocs who have some working knowledge of NMR theory, i.e. product operator formalism, and who understand the basic principles of NMR pulse sequences. Possible candidates should have the knowledge of NMR theory at the level of the book 'Protein NMR Spectroscopy' by Cavanagh et al. or similar.
