MT24 will explore cutting-edge magnet technologies

MT24, the 24th International Conference on Magnet Technology, will take place at the Coex Center, Seoul, Korea, October 18-23.

The conference, organized by The Korean Institute of Superconductivity and Cryogenics, will cover magnet technology ranging from large scale magnets to magnets for home appliances. The most powerful particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, cannot be fabricated without advanced magnet technology. The nuclear fusion reactor of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) is another example in which magnet technology plays a crucial role.

MT24’s scope includes all components and materials related to the construction of magnets. Essential topics will be design methods and analysis tools for magnet systems and the magnets themselves. MT24 will be a great opportunity to explore cutting-edge magnet technologies.

The conference will offer an official visit to the Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research facilities operated by the Korean National Fusion Research Institute. The Conference chair is Guesoo Cha, Soonchunhyang University. Other chairs are Scientific Program committee chair, Haigun Lee, Korea University; Local Organizing committee chair, Sang-Soo Oh, Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute; and Industrial Exhibits chair, Hunju Lee, SuNAM Co., Ltd.

MT 24 manuscripts will be published in the Vol. 26 No. 3 (June 2016) issue of the IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity, and as such will be subject to that journal’s usual peer review procedures.
