The INTERMAG 2021 Conference was due to be held in Lyon, France, 26-30 April 2021. Unfortunately, the ongoing
COVID-19 pandemic and associated economic crisis meant that there was considerable uncertainty about the ability and willingness of our attendees to travel internationally. Owing to this uncertainty, the INTERMAG 2021 Management Committee, with the approval of the IEEE Magnetics Society Conference Executive Committee, decided to change the conference format from a face-to-face meeting to a virtual one.
With that said, we are excited to bring you the INTERMAG 2021 Virtual Conference! The program will consist of prerecorded talks that will be made available to registered attendees on-demand starting 19 April 2021. To best serve our global community, the Conference will schedule live programming, including Q&A sessions, during the four “golden global hours,” or "Zones" as follows:
- Zone 1: Best for Asia (morning) and US (evening of the day before)
- Zone 2: Best for Europe and Asia
- Zone 3: Best for Europe, Asia and Eastern US
- Zone 4: Best for Europe and US
All live events and sessions will be recorded and together with all the prerecorded content, made available to registered attendees, along with all the prerecorded content, until 30 June 2021 (60 days after the Conference ends). Attendees are highly encouraged to view the prerecorded talks beginning 19 April and submit questions to the presenters via the chat boards. Presenters will be monitoring these chat boards daily.
Live Sessions will take place during the Conference week, 26-30 April. These live sessions will be for Special Sessions, Symposia Invited Talks, Focus Sessions, and the Plenary and Awards Session, and will include brief summary talks followed by live Q&A. Again, attendees are highly encouraged to watch the prerecorded talks and submit questions in advance. Note that contributed oral and poster sessions will hold Q&A via the chat boards only.
