We want to draw attention to the existing ion mobility spectrometry professional bodies and interest groups that are out there at the moment.
- The ISIMS (International Society for Ion Mobility Spectrometry) is an established society that holds a yearly International conference. The 22nd annual conference takes place in July 2013 (21st - 25th) at Boppard in Germany's picturesque Rhine Valley. Session topics are likely to include fundamentals of IMS, applications of IMS, DMS/FAIMS, biological applications and ionization methods. The deadline for paper titles and authors is 1st April 2013.
- The American Society of Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) host an IMS special interest group and have dedicated IMS and FAIMS sessions at their annual conference.
- The British Mass Spectrometry Society (BMSS) have recently announced the founding of an Ion Mobility - Mass Spectrometry special interest group. Take a look at the BMSS website for more details
Do you know of any other groups for ion mobility researchers? If so, stick a post on the Ion Mobility Mass Spectrometry group on LinkedIn.
