IES Virtual EPR Meeting (IVEM)

About the virtual EPR Meeting

Originally an informal intiative by PhD students in EPR spectroscopy around the world, the IES Virtual EPR Meetings offer a forum of scientific exchange among young researchers in the COVID-19 era that has led to a lockdown of research labs in nearly every country. It aims to maintain, strengthen and extend the EPR community around the world – a goal that is desirable also when this public health crisis is over.

How it works

A young researcher presents recent advances in EPR or related fields for about 20 minutes, followed by extensive open discussion.

Usually, the meetings are held on Fridays at 15.00 UTC (8am in California, 11am in Boston, 16.00 in the UK, 17.00 in Berlin/Zurich, 18.00 in Israel, 00.00 in Kyoto, 01.00 in Sydney). In the future, we plan to also hold it at times that are more suitable for researchers in the Asia/Pacific Region.

The meetings are held via Zoom. Please send us an email if you would like to get the invitations (please use an institutional account if possible).
