Dear Colleague:

It is a pleasure for me to invite you to attend the International Magnetics Conference, Intermag 2009, which will be held from Monday May 4, until Friday May 8, 2009, at the Convention Center in Sacramento California.

Intermag is the premier conference on applied magnetics which allows scientists and engineers from all over to world to meet and discuss novel developments in magnetics, magnetic materials and associated technologies. Intermag 2009 is planned to provide a range of oral and poster presentations, invited talks and symposia, a tutorial session, and exhibitions reviewing the latest developments in magnetics. I would like you to attend the conference and actively contribute to one or more of its technical sessions. The deadline for digest submissions is January 5, 2009.

Sacramento, the conference venue, is the Capital of California: a lively and vibrant city. Participants will find in downtown Sacramento a wide choice of restaurants and shops within walking distance. A short drive will also allow our attendees to reach the San Francisco area, the fabulous hillside vineyards, or the lakes and snowcapped mountains of the Sierra Nevada.

On behalf of the Management Committee of Intermag 2009, I look forward to seeing you in Sacramento, CA, to help contribute to an exciting scientific and technical program.


Massimo Pasquale
Intermag 2009 General Chairman
