Dear colleagues and friends,
By continuing the successful tradition of the Julich meetings held in 2008 and 2010 and of the Knoxville workshop in 2010, we have organized the first Conference on PET-MR and SPECT-MR in sharing by Pisa University-INFN, the COST Action PET-MRI (funded by EU for 2011-2014) and Juelich Forschungszentrum. This conference is scheduled for May 26-30, 2012 in the ELBA island, near Pisa (Italy) and is the first of a series that will be hopefully run as annual conference. The next one will be in Julich in 2013 and the following one in Greece in 2014.
The conference will cover all the technological and applicative aspects of both sequential and simultaneous PET/MR and SPECT/MR systems. Both clinical and preclinical applications will be discussed. An industrial session will be set up where companies can provide the latest information on their products in this field. Finally there will be also presented the latest results on the continuous search for new tracers and especially for bi-modal tracers that could give the greatest advantages for the hybrid system.
The Co-chairs of the PSMR2012 meeting, Alberto Del Guerra, George Loudos and Hans Herzog, invite all of you to participate to this conference. The submission of abstracts has just opened and will be closed on February 29, 2012. There will be both invited and oral talks and poster contributions. The conference proceedings will be published in Nuclear Instruments and Methods A.

We are looking forward to meeting you on the beautiful Elba Island.
With our best regards
Alberto Del Guerra
