For more than 20 years I have enjoyed attending the MOOT NMR Minisymposium. This is a regional (but growing) NMR meeting held over a weekend usually in late September or early October. It is a friendly forum for students and researchers to present NMR results and a great way to socialize with old friends or meet new contacts. I have attended all but 3 of the 20 meetings held thus far and even had the privilege of hosting MOOT VIII in 1995. MOOT XXI will be held on October 4 -5 this year, hosted by Robert Schurko at the University of Windsor. This year, for the first time, there are scheduled a number of tutorial talks. You can register on line and find all of the information here. I highly recommend this meeting for all those interested in NMR spectroscopy.
