IMSC 2018, Florence
IMSC is not new in Florence. In fact its seventh edition was hosted in this town in 1976, many years ago. During the decades mass spectrometry has developed a lot in Italy in many fields with top level scientists.
After 42 years, the city of Florence, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, is ready to host the 22nd edition of IMSC which will be the occasion to celebrate the 60th anniversary of this conference.
The IMSC2018 venue is the historic "Fortezza da Basso", a masterpiece of Renaissance military architecture, built in 1534-1537, fully restored and located downtown, a few steps away from many hotels and all the attractions (museums, theatres, monuments, etc) of the city.
As all the previous editions, IMSC 2018 will cover all aspects of mass spectrometry, from fundamentals to instrumentation and applications.
The conference is organized with short courses, tutorial lectures, oral and poster sessions, workshops, awards, commercial exhibition, social program (including a welcome mixer, the social dinner in an exclusive place, and a program for accompanying persons), and companies user meetings. All of them will be defined shortly.
We think that IMSC 2018 will be an useful occasion to enjoy science, network and meet old friends or new colleagues, to get new ideas for your job, for establishing new collaborations, starting new projects,... in the unique charm, amazing history and culture of Florence!
