The First symposium on Field Cycling NMR Relaxometry was held in Berlin in 1998; subsequently the editions from 2001 to 2013 took place in Turin every two years, while the ninth was held at the University of Aberdeen, in North-East Scotland.

The group of Aberdeen has been working on Fast Field-Cycling MRI and was the host of this year’s conference.

In fact, the 9th conference in the series represented a change in location from Southern to Northern Europe, but the ethos of the conference remained constant: to discuss and promote the technology, methods, theory and diverse applications of field-cycling magnetic resonance and allied endeavours.

Discussions included topics related to experimental issues, background theory, modelling and applications in a variety of materials, including but not restricted to solids, porous and heterogeneous systems, polymers, biological tissues and pharmaceuticals.
