This event will bring together industry with academia around developing MRI technologies.
The speakers and audience will be drawn from producers of standard MRI machines, small-scale novel and pre-clinical MRI developers/manufacturers, producers/distributors of magnetic micro- & nano- particles, and academics researching new alternative bio-compatible magnetic nano and micro particles for MRI-based diagnostics, or using MRI as a research tool. Talks and poster session targeted to non-specialist audiences to help stimulate discussion between industry and academia and facilitate the building of consortia. Representatives from the KTN will attend and speak about relevant I-UK (or other) funding opportunities for this area.
Poster submission: There will be interactive poster sessions and poster submissions are encouraged from any participants. Accepted student posters will gain free registration to the event. If you are interested to present a poster, please submit a short abstract (<300 words) plus the poster title, author/contributor names, affiliation addresses, and contact email address of the attendee/presenter. Please also indicate if you are a student (undergraduate/masters/PhD) if you wish to be considered for free registration. Please email the abstract in the form of a Word document to firstname.lastname@example.org by 2pm on Friday 1st February 2019.

The venue is the Simpkins Lee Seminar Room on the ground floor of the Beecroft Building – the building in front of the Clarendon Laboratory on this map.
There is no parking available near the venue. Oxford is notorious for its parking, and its parking enforcement. The best option is to use the Park and Ride; probably Pear Tree is the closest to the Clarendon.
Parking in Oxford
Many Oxford streets are closed to traffic and parking is severely limited. Visitors are encouraged to use the five Park and Ride bus services.
Please refer to Oxfordshire County Council’s up-to-date traffic information for details of all local road works and any disruptions likely to delay your journey.
Park and Ride
There are five Park and Ride sites which serve Oxford City Centre.
- Oxford Parkway (north, aka Water Eaton park & Ride)). For satnav use OX2 8HA. Take the 500 bus to and from the city centre.
- Pear Tree (north). For satnav use OX2 8JD. Take the 300 bus to and from the city centre.
- Redbridge (south). For satnav use OX1 4XG. Take the 300 bus to and from the city centre.
- Thornhill (east). For satnav use OX3 8DP. Take the 400 bus to and from the city centre.
- Seacourt (west). For satnav use OX2 0HP. Take the 400 bus to and from the city centre.
Please note that Thornhill and Seacourt are often full, particularly on University Open Days. We recommend that drivers coming from the east (including London), the south and the west use the Redbridge Park and Ride, while drivers arriving from the north can choose between Pear Tree and Oxford Parkway.
The Oxford Bus Company has detailed information on Park and Ride locations, timetables and fares.
