We are pleased to announce that the 7th Asia Oceania Mass Spectrometry Conference will be held in Singapore from 11th-13th of December 2017. It is hosted by the Singapore Society for Mass Spectrometry (SSMS) and co-organized by staff from National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI). The conference will be held at Matrix, Biopolis. The AOMSC has been a successful and useful conference to showcase advancement in mass spectrometric developments and applications, and also serve as a forum to foster closer cooperation and collaboration between mass spectrometry practitioners in Asia and Oceania. It has been held successfully in several countries with the first being hosted by the Mass Spectrometry Society of Japan (MSSJ) in Tsukuba, Japan in 2010. Subsequently, it was held in Busan (South Korea, 2011), Kyoto (Japan, 2012), Taipei (Taiwan, 2013), Beijing (China, 2014) and Brisbane (Australia, 2015). To continue the tradition and spirit of this conference series, SSMS has accepted the challenge to organize the 7th meeting in Singapore.
We are planning a 3-day conference that will feature distinguished invited speakers in 3 plenary sessions and 18 conference sessions covering topics that include areas in proteomics, metabolomics, glycomics and lipidomics, structural mass spectrometry (MS), imaging MS, MS applications in biologics, pharmaceuticals, environment and food, advances in MS instrumentation, and informatics. Conference participants will have the opportunity to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations. In addition, corporate sponsors will be conducting daily lunch time workshops and presenting their products and solutions at exhibition booths.
We welcome you to join and support us in this conference dedicated to Mass Spectrometry. It is an event not to be missed. Hope to see you in our beautiful cosmopolitan city!
