Contrast Social spaceholder 960   This two-day meeting will be de­vot­ed to new de­ve­lop­ments in mag­ne­tic re­so­nan­ce con­trast agents – and a re­view of the past 40 years. It will feature in­vit­ed and prof­fer­ed pa­pers and pos­ters.

spaceholder 960   Since 1988, the European Magnetic Resonance Forum (EMRF) has arranged a series of biennial conferences focused on recent developments in image contrast enhancement by agents or tracers. The purpose of these meetings is to allow those interested in the field to get together to present their research in a setting that fosters discussion, collaboration, and advancement in the field. From the beginning, this group has been comprised of both university scientists and representatives from industry.

The conference is organized on the principle of formal scientific exchange during the academic sessions and informal interaction during the rest of the day. Over the years, this has led to the development of new projects and products, often collaborative ones, between industry and academics or between universities. As always, also in Mons the traditional mood of friendly and open exchange between the industrial and academic communities will be preserved.

EMRF's conferences are ongoing projects. Their continuity and success not only depend on intellectual interest, contribution and support of academics and commercial researchers in the field, as well as on financial support of the research branches of industry, but they also require the attention and input of scientists, physicians, trainees, and other researchers who use, and improve, contrast agents of all kinds.
