12th Conference on Fast Field Cycling NMR Relaxometry

Dear Colleagues,


It is with great pleasure that we announce that the 12th Conference on Fast Field Cycling NMR relaxometry will be held in the historic city of Cambridge, UK on the 13th-15th of July 2022. We look forward to welcoming you all for an exciting and thought-provoking conference on all aspects of field cycling NMR and related fields.


Since the first meeting, which was held in Berlin in 1998, the Fast Field Cycling NMR Relaxometry community has grown in number and interests, and we ourselves only joined in recent years. The past conferences have brought together researchers from a range of backgrounds (physicists, chemists, engineers, biologists, physicians) to discuss the theory, applications and new developments in fast field cycling and low field NMR relaxometry. The 12th conference in the series will continue this multidisciplinary trend, and will cover systems including, but not limited to, porous and heterogeneous systems, polymers, biological tissues, contrast agents, solids, ionic liquids and pharmaceuticals.

The conference will consist of oral and poster presentations on instrumentation, background theory, modelling and applications in different fields. We hope that this will provide a forum for researchers to discuss and share ideas, and to form new collaborations or strengthen existing ones. In addition to the scientific programme, we have arranged a formal dinner at Trinity Hall College and a punt tour of the river Cam ( to provide a less formal setting to get to know one another.


We look forward to seeing you all at the conference.


Best wishes,

Jordan, Julian, Mick, Andy, and Lynn

Poster Prizes now available!  

Two poster prizes of £100 have been donated by the Institute of Physics (IoP) for the best posters presented by a student and by an early career researcher. These prizes will be will be judged by a panel of experts at the conference and all posters will be automatically eligible. 


Institute of Physics Fellowships

The Institute of Physics (IoP) have provided two conference fellowships to support the attendance of early career researchers. The fellowships will cover the registration fees of the successful applicants and will be awarded on academic merit. Applications including a CV and a short cover letter (300 words maximum) should be sent to

Application deadline is May 20th, 2022.



Stelar Fellowships

Stelar conference fellowships are available to cover the registration fees of young researchers under the age of 35. Fellowships will be awarded based on academic merits, and researchers who are new to field cycling are strongly encouraged to apply.
