There are few more perfect places to discuss the cutting edge of magnetic particle research than beautiful Asheville, North Carolina. This 3 day meeting will include fantastic talks, and presentations from the leaders in the field of magnetic nanoparticles for biomedical applications. This conference will bring a diverse group of disciplines together to discuss the frontiers in the characterization and control of magnetic carriers. The program includes invited talks, contributed talks, and posters. A separate session focused on career development for students will also be included.  A social event will also be held the evening before the meeting on Sunday June 4, 2017 to greet friends and colleagues, old and new.

The meeting will be held at the Venue in Downtown Asheville (map)

The schedule for the meeting can be found here.

We are pleased to announce that papers from this meeting may be published in IEEE Magnetics Letters

You may submit your four-page paper (plus one additional page for acknowledgments and references), whether contributed or invited, for publication in IEEE Magnetics Letters (IML) any time before the first day of the conference. If you are giving an invited talk, your article should not be a review. Rather, it should contain mostly new results, as is appropriate for a letters journal. A Microsoft Word template is available <>

The regular editors will manage the review process. If your article is accepted, it will be published on-line, in preprint form, immediately after full peer review and your revisions. Several weeks later, it will appear as fully edited and typeset. Each paper will have its own article number and its own dates of submission and publication.

Each article will have a heading, “Biomagnetics,” and a footnote, “Frontiers in Biomagnetic Particles Conference, Asheville, North Carolina, USA, 5-7 June 2017.” Except for the footnote, the format of your article will be indistinguishable from that of any other IML article. It will not be part of a conference proceedings. Each article will be open access for anyone for 10 days after publication. There is no charge for publication.

The URL for article submission is <>.  Important: In Step 1 of the submission process, be sure to select “BM – Biomagnetics” as the Manuscript Type. In Step 2, please select “FBMP – Frontiers in Biomagnetic Particles” under Conference-Related Articles.

The IML website for published articles is <>IML is tracked by all major indexing services, including Web of Science and Scopus. The average time from submission to preprint publication is 4 weeks.
