Welcome to the

37th Informal Meeting on Mass Spectrometry

  5th – 8th May 2019

 Teatro dell’ Oratorio di Pieve, Via G. Marconi 3, Fiera di Primiero (TN) Italy

IMMS covers, as usual, all aspects of mass spectrometry. According to the spirit of IMMS meetings, we would like to support young scientists, giving them opportunity to present their results. It will also provide opportunity to discuss them in a friendly environment, with senior scientists. The number of participants will be limited to 150, so, please register early! As usual, there is no participation fee.

There is a possibility to publish the material presented at the 37th IMMS in a special issue of Journal of Mass Spectrometry, provided there will be more than 10 papers collected. Papers should be submitted not later than the 30th of June 2019, and will be published as soon as they are accepted.

In these pages, you can will find information about the 37th IMMS. Please do not hesitate to contact directly the Organizing Committee. We are also open for any proposals and suggestions that can improve the quality of the meeting.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 37th IMMS, sincerely yours,

 

  Gianluca Bartolucci and Sara Crotti  (Chairmen) and László Drahos (Co-chairman)

 

 

 

The Informal Meeting was born thirty years ago in Italy with the aim of facilitating an exchange of knowledge between the various, mainly Central European, groups operating in the field of mass spectrometry. As you will have realized, there are two kinds of researchers: those who like to talk (about what others have done) and those who like to do (and talk about what they have done). Well, the IMMS was born with the aim of favoring the second group. Hence: i) there are no formal presentations e.g. by rectors, mayors or councilors; ii) there is no registration fee to encourage the presence of young people, who represent the future of science and technology; iii) the conference site is always organized in places suitable for a low budget, and mostly at rural locations to stimulate the exchange of ideas; iv) young scientists are encouraged to give lectures; while plenary lectures are mostly avoided; and finally, v) there is a strong emphasis to promote active discussions during and after lectures.

Five years after its foundation, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences took part actively and fruitfully in the organization of the Meeting, which was organized alternatively in Hungary and in Italy for many years. Increasing interest from a number of research groups led to moving the meeting to various other European countries as well; e.g. the 35th in France, 36th IMMS in Hungary, and the 38th probably in the Czech Republic. All of these choices contributed to the success of the meeting. The number of participants is limited to 120-150 by a conscious decision: This seems to be the maximum, which permits informality and encourages active discussion. Most participants are coming from various European countries with a few additions from the United States and Canada. Most mass spectrometry manufacturers and representatives of ancillary techniques are also present; which is a good opportunity both to companies and participants to discuss technical issues.

In the past we, Pietro Traldi and Károly Vékey, were joint chairmen and in most cases main organizers of the meeting, and we did enjoy it tremendously. We wish to thank all participants of the past meetings and all our colleagues helping in the organization: It was a fantastic occasion to develop not only professional contacts, but real friendship with a lot of people. Life is based on  personal interactions and we hope that IMMS did help creating contacts and goodwill among most participants.

After over thirty years of IMMS we think that a change is needed: Younger people should take care of the IMMS organization to guarantee its future based on the established tradition. The new organizers will be Gianluca Bartolucci (Florence University) and László Drahos (Hungarian Academy of Sciences), but we will still be around to help out, when needed. We wish Gianluca and László a good job!

INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS

Participants

The Italian Mass Spectrometry Society supports the 37th IMMS by providing two Participation Grants worth 400 Euro for young (under 31 years old) participants. Selection of awardees will be based on the scientific quality of the submitted abstracts. The awarded researchers will be invited to give an oral presentation at the conference.
Young Researchers can apply for one of the Grants by sending their abstract for an oral presentation and a short CV at the email address: registrazione@imass.it before March 10th 2019. Applicants must be regularly registered with IMaSS at the date of submission of the application. Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by IMaSS Executive Board. Selected award winners will receive the communication before March 15th 2019.

Abstracts

Deadline for receiving the abstract is the 17th of March 2019. Details for abstract preparation and submission can be found at this link.

Orals

All oral talks will be 20 minutes including discussion. Admitted presentation formats are PowerPoint or PDF file. All presentations should be uploaded on the computer provided by the organizers the morning of the lecture. Each participant will be limited to present only one oral lecture or a poster presentation. As in the last IMMS meetings, there will be no plenary lectures. Due to time limitation, only a certain number of oral presentation will be possible. Therefore oral proposals submitted after the fulfillment of the maximum number of presentations will be converted in posters. In this case authors will be informed.

Posters

Poster size is 90 cm wide, 120 cm tall. The IRP – Istituto di Ricerca Pediatrica-Città della Speranza, will offer a prize (150 euros) for the two best posters that will be presented at the 37th IMMS.
