The 10th Joint Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (MMM)/Intermag Conference will be held at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland from Sunday, January 7 through Thursday, January 11, 2007. Members of the international scientific and engineering communities interested in recent developments in magnetism and associated technologies are invited to attend the Conference and contribute to its technical sessions.

SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE: This Conference will include all basic and applied science and technology related to the field of magnetism. The technical subject categories for the Conference are located at the end of this Call.


  • The presenting author must be a paid registrant. The Conference does not provide support for any contributed papers.
  • Abstracts must be submitted prior to the August 9, 2006 deadline.
  • All abstracts must be submitted via the WEB submission system ONLY.
  • Submit all abstracts electronically, using the link found at ( The link will be available starting July 19, 2006.
  • Abstracts should be 300 words or less, and are limited by the submission system.
  • Abstract acceptance will be announced via email. Authors will be advised as to the status of their submission by mid September 2006.


The program will consist of invited and contributed papers falling broadly within the scope of the categories listed at the end of this Call.



The Proceedings of the Conference will be published in June 2007 as special issues of the Journal of Applied Physics and IEEE Transactions on Magnetics. Entire sessions will be assigned to one or the other of these publications by the Program Committee. All manuscripts must be received by October 31, 2006.

The Megagauss XI Conference is the latest in a line of conferences that date back to 1965, when Megagauss I took place in Italy at Frascati (Roma). Since then subsequent conferences have brought together distinguished scientists and technologists from many countries to present their latest theoretical and experimental studies in such areas as the generation of ultrahigh magnetic fields, the development of flux compression generators, liner implosions for fusion problems, high-current switching technologies, and the application of these techniques in many areas of science and technology.
