The International Board on the Applications of the Mössbauer Effect (IBAME) was established with approval of a constitution in August 1993 at the International Conference on the Mössbauer Effect that was held in Vancouver that year. The first official meeting of this organization took place at ICAME '95 in Rimini, Italy.
The objectives of this Board are to advance the diffusion of knowledge in the field of the Mössbauer Effect and its applications, to promote the activities of the international community in this interdisciplinary field of basic and applied research, to attempt the harmonization of venues and dates of the various international and continental Mössbauer conferences to avoid duplications, and to encourage the participation of young research workers and research workers of weak resource countries.
The most recent meeting of IBAME took place at the last International Conference on the Applications of the Mössbauer Effect that was held in Kanpur, India, in October 2007. The current Chairperson is Professor Dr. Dénes Lajos Nagy and the Vice-Chairperson is Dr. Jean-Marc Grèneche.
Elections have recently been held in many countries, and the Members list has been updated as of May 2009.
