EUROMAR is a major commitment of the European Magnetic Resonance community that decided to merge under this name three international conference series: AMPÈRE congress, the European Experimental NMR conference (EENC) and the UK RSC NMR Discussion Group.

The versatility of magnetic resonance techniques and its many fields of application generate a continuous demand for a variety of new methods that fuel its rapid evolution into apparently diverging branches. However, the common physical basis and a common language turn this diversity into a motor for new discoveries.

EUROMAR’s mission is to become a reference point for magnetic resonance in Europe and an active contributor to its evolution. Its purpose is to identify new frontiers and areas of application, to spread innovative ideas and techniques among a large community that is dispersed both geographically and by its specialization, and to promote interdisciplinary exchange.

With the help of the European Science Foundation, EUROMAR is expected to become the centre of a five year Research Networking Program (2007-2011) including training and discovery activities with the participation of European National Societies of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Electronic Paramagnetic Resonances.

EUROMAR 2007 will be held in Tarragona (Spain) and will offer participants the latest scientific breakthrough in an enjoyable Mediterranean location. As chairman of this conference and on behalf of the organizing committee and the EUROMAR board, it is my pleasure to cordially invite you to join us in making EUROMAR Tarragona 2007 a memorable scientific and personal experience.
