The 18th International Mass Spectrometry Conference (IMSC 2009) takes place in Bremen, Germany, between 30 August and 4 September. We are pleased to bring you regular updates from the conference and exhibition.
Keep checking here for the latest news!
Our guest video blogger is Giles Edwards. Giles describes himself as a mass spectrometer enthusiast. As well as his job at Waters as a Technical Support Specialist, he runs a charity (Recycling Organisation for Research Opportunities) that collects redundant analytical instrumentation, repairs it and then gives it to academic institutions that do not possess sophisticated analytical instrumentation.

Sunday afternoon and much of the mass spectrometry world is on its way to or has arrived in Bremen for IMSC 2009. Looks like there'll be over 2000 delegates.
The exhibition is in the usual state of choas to be expected at this stage. A few stands smugly finished, others undergoing work of a more of less frantic nature and others where anybody is yet to arrive. However, by some superhuman effort, tomorrow the mess will be tidied away, surfaces and exhibitors polished and we'll be ready for action.
Registration seems very well organised, with staff resplendent in lime green: they're eay to spot; and very helpful.
The conference kicks off shortly with tutorial lectures by Michael Karas and Richard O'Hair, and the first plenary by Gerard Meijer followed by the mixer.
