The International EPR (ESR) Society has been an internationally active group since its inception in 1989. The Society aims to stimulate scientific development of electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), also known as electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy, facilitate communication among EPR (ESR) researchers, and encourage the use of EPR (ESR) techniques across a wide variety of research fields. The Society maintains a large database of members who are active in EPR (ESR) research. These members have access to a quarterly newsletter, too. At their annual meetings the Society also presents awards for research in various areas.

  • The next Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held during the EFEPR meeting in Torino, Italy See our Meeting page for more details.
  • The IES is sad to inform that Vice President Graeme Hanson passed away on Feb. 24, 2015. It was only 2 months after he started as the Vice President of IES. It was a great loss for our society and science as a whole. However, his will to expand and strengthen the society remains forever inside our hearts.
  • The Annual General Meeting of the IES will be held at the Rocky Maintain Conference in Snowbird, Utah, USA, late July. See Meetings page for more information.
  • As of 2014 the IES sponsors student awards for the best poster(s) at select EPR-related meetings each year. Eligible candidates are graduate students and post docs (not later than 3 years after their PhD.)
