Mass spectrometry is, arguably the most important analytical spectrometric tool of modern times and the organic and inorganic mass spectrometry communities are probably the largest group of scientists working around a single tool. For both communities mass spectrometry concerns ion chemistry and physics with an emphasis on scientific instrumentation for mass separation. During the past several years, paralleling the growth of applications of the method, mass spectrometers have, however, become a kind of black boxes for many users even through a variety of new principles of ionization have been developed and made commercially available.
This conference is meant to provide an international forum by which organic and inorganic mass spectrometry researchers and users have the opportunity to share their knowledge and exchange ideas on ionization principles in particular.
We cordinally invite you to contribute in this important field and to attend the conference.
