In the late 1980s, the research interest in magnetic bearings was growing quickly on an international level. The first international meeting, allowing the exchange and presentation of ideas and development results was organized in Zurich, Switzerland, in June 1988 by professor Gerhard Schweitzer. Since then, the ISMB was held every two years, bringing together the global key researchers in academia and industry in the field of magnetic bearings. Hundreds of publications have been presented at the ISMB. Please see the publication section for the index and the full papers in our online repository.
