14 International Youth School-Conference "Magnetic resonance and its applications - Spinus-2017"

Welcome to the 14th International Youth School-Conference "Magnetic resonance and its applications" (Spinus 2017) organized by Saint Petersburg State University in April, 23 – 29, 2017.The goal of “Spinus” is to provide a platform to young scientists for the use of all aspects of magnetic resonance methods and techniques, as well as computational and theoretical approaches, for the solving of fundamental and applied problems in physics, chemistry, medicine and biology. The number of participants is limited by 200 persons..

Spinus intends to provide students and young scientists an opportunity to learn and discuss modern applications of magnetic resonance techniques in solving fundamental and applied problems in physics, chemistry, medicine and biology.

The estimated number of participants is 200, including 120 young participants (students and scientists under 35 years old).


The scope of the Conference includes the following topics:

  • Modern trends in NMR, EPR and NQR
  • Magnetic resonance for fundamental science
  • Computer Modeling
  • Earth's field NMR
  • Magnetic resonance imaging
  • Magnetic resonance in industry
  • Related areas

In 2017 «Spinus» schedules a special section «Application of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology» in which will reflect the activities of the Biomolecular NMR Laboratory.
The official language of the «Spinus-2017» is English. Extended abstracts will be published in the Book of Abstract.

Registration fee

The registration fee is 6500 rub. (≈100 €) for active participants and 3250 rub. (≈50 €) for young scientists (students and Ph. D. students) and accompanying person. For Russian citizen the fee is 2000 rub and 1000 rub, correspondently.

Registration fees include organization costs, «Spinus 2017» materials, welcome-party, coffee breaks, transportation in the days of arrival and departure. On-line registration is available on the conference site:


“Spinus-2017” will take place at the hotel "Baltiets" in Repino on the beach of the Gulf of Finland, 30 km north-west from the center of St. Petersburg ( Minimal estimated cost for a one-day stay in the hotel (full board including also swimming pool and sauna) is 3400 rub ( ≈ 52 €) for two persons in a double room, i.e. 1700 rub per person.
