History of the IES
Following considerable discussion, including the results of a questionnaire
distributed in the EPR Centers Newsletter, a group of about 70 attendees
at the 12th International EPR Symposium in Denver, Colorado (July, 1989) voted
unanimously to form an International EPR Society. At present, the Society
has 1,500 members world wide plus the support of 15 corporate affiliates.
A database of members and other scientists involved in EPR research is maintained
(by Society funds) at the National Biomedical ESR Center, Medical College
of Wisconsin email@example.com .
Society funding, as well as Illinois EPR Research Center funding received
from the National Center for Research Resources of the National Institutes
of Health, also supports the publication of the EPR newsletter four times
a year with one issue including a directory of the entire database (over
The aims of the Society are:
The Society is to be international in scope and is to cover the entire
range of disciplines that use EPR.
- To stimulate the scientific development of electron paramagnetic
resonance (EPR)/electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy.
- To communicate information and news about EPR and its applications
among its members and to serve as a clearing house on EPR among scientists
in academia, government, and industry.
- To encourage appropriate and useful application of EPR in
a wide variety of fields, including physical, chemical, biological, medical,
agricultural, and geological systems.
- To provide a central voice for the EPR community by promoting
support for research and development utilizing EPR through interaction with
other societies, government funding agencies, and international scientific
- To stimulate educational programs on EPR and related spectroscopies
through the organization of schools, workshops, and seminars.
Some of the specific ways in which the Society will seek to achieve its
The Society will seek to work cooperatively with existing national and
international magnetic resonance societies, including joint sponsorship of
meetings and workshops where there is a mutual desire to do so. The Society
does not intend to establish a new meeting or to establish a new journal.
It will consult with existing journals to determine if there is mutual interest
in some relationship that could result in enhanced coverage of EPR and a reduced
subscription price for the journal for members.
- sponsorship of workshops;
- establishment of a committee on instrumentation to provide
recommendations on such topics as maintenance of aging Varian spectrometers
and suggestions for the development of spectrometers optimized for specific
classes of applications;
- establishment of a committee to facilitate access to and knowledge
of commercial and non-profit computer materials for EPR;
- establishment of a committee on nomenclature;
- provision of systematic input to NIH, NSF, and other government
agencies throughout the world on the evaluation and support of research
- establishment of a newsletter as a regular vehicle for communication
of information ranging from technical discussions to a calendar of upcoming
During the discussions about the establishment of the Society there was
a strong consensus that EPR has entered a very exciting and productive stage
whose full exploitation would be enhanced by having an organized body that
centers on the technique. While there is no desire to dissociate from general
magnetic resonance societies, it was felt that these societies inevitably
will be dominated by the more numerous NMR users. Support of this viewpoint
was received from government, industrial, and academic participants.
It was agreed that the key to success of the Society will be the INVOLVEMENT
of the EPR COMMUNITY in the Society. To join or renew your membership, please
