Physical Phenomena at High Magnetic Fields was first held in 1991 to celebrate the award of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory to Florida State University, University of Florida, and Los Alamos National laboratory, and to identify the most important topics in materials science at the extremes. Held at FSU, the four-day international conference attracted more than 150 theorists and experimentalists
PPHMF-II was held four years later in May of 1995. The lab's headquarters in Tallahassee had just recently completed construction and full-scale scientific operations were underway. The topics covered reflected the interdisciplinary nature of science in high magnetic fields, and included semiconductors, heavy fermions, molecular conductors, mesoscopic phenomena, superconductivity, magnetic resonance, biology and chemistry.
Based on the success of the 1995 conference and with much enthusiasm, organizers decided to continue the tradition and hold the conference approximately every three years. And so they have, through the fall of the Soviet Union and 9/11, graduate students and Nobel Laureates alike continue to look forward to the PPHMF conference, where the top scientists in the field cover a wide range of experimental techniques and identify new opportunities in magnetic field research.

The Magnet Lab is headquartered in Tallahassee, the state capital of Florida, located in the north of the state midway between Jacksonville and Pensacola on Interstate 10. Jacksonville is about 160 miles (250 km) to the east; Pensacola is 190 miles (300 km) to the west. Tallahassee is serviced by a regional airport located a few miles from the Magnet Lab.
In addition to Florida State University, Tallahassee is home to Florida A&M University and Tallahassee Community College. These and other smaller schools help make Tallahassee a very young city for Florida, with a median age of about 26. Tallahassee features several museums and other cultural attractions, and is surrounded by many natural treasures including the 564,961-acre Apalachicola National Forest, Wakulla Springs State Park, St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge and numerous lakes and rivers. The climate is mild: the average low is 56º F (13º C), while the average high is 79º F (26º C ).
The agenda for PPHMF-VIII includes two very special events. The registration fee covers these events for conference participants. Companion participation in all special events is included in the "with guest" registration options.
The special events include:
- Jan. 5: Welcome Reception at Hotel Duval
- Jan. 8: Conference Banquet at Mission San Luis
