issue of the "Magnetic Resonance in Solids. Electronic Journal" contains proceedings of
the 10th International School for Young Scientists "Actual Problems of
Magnetic Resonance and Its Applications" (Kazan,
31 October -- 3 November 2006 ).
The School was
established in 1997 by Kazan State University
and Zavoisky Physical-Technical Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences. The key aims of the School
were to provide young scientists and post-graduate students with close informal
intercommunication with well-known scientists actively worked in the magnetic radiospectroscopy; to give them an opportunity of learning
main features and know-how of experimental and theoretical researches
first-hand; to facilitate their acquirement of public speaking experience,
participation in scientific disputes and poster presentations preparing. The
Decade of School existence witnesses that it achieved the set goals
successfully. Over 400 young scientists from Moscow,
St.-Petersburg, Kazan, Ekaterinburg,
and other cities and towns of Russia
took part in the School sessions. Over 100 well-known scientists from the
leading magnetic resonance research centers of Russia,
Ukraine, USA, France,
were the lecturers of the School.
The scientific level of
young scientists' researches increased significantly. The scope of "schoolboys"
report themes that at the School beginning comprised mainly the problems of
magnetic resonance in solids has extended and at the moment covers new fields
of magnetic resonance application in biology, chemical physics, medicine,
geology, etc as well.
Annually the School’s
jury awards the three best scientific research papers of young scientists but
we consider all School participants including "schoolboys" and famous scientists
-- "teachers" to be the winners. This is a reason of our optimistic view for the
future of the School.
