Bienvenue au MOOT31 / Welcome to MOOT31


The MOntréal-Ottawa-Toronto NMR mini-symposium was first held in Montréal in 1988. Over the years, the MOOT has expanded and travelled between Western Ontario and Prince Edward Island with the same goal: Bringing together NMR spectroscopists and imaging scientists to discuss and present their most recent work in a casual, friendly and relax environment. The MOOT mini-symposium encourages trainees (PDF and Graduate students) to present their work either by poster or oral presentations. Prizes for best poster and oral prensentations will also be given this year. We are excited to be part of the MOOT tradition in Sherbooke for the second time. MOOT14 was organized by Serge Lacelle and Luc Tremblay at the UdeS in 2001.
