ISMAS Triennial Conference on Mass Spectrometry

ISMAS International Conference on Mass Spectrometry is held triennially. This provides a forum to research scholars, university faculty and research scientists from Research Institutes, Universities, Industries, Hospitals and other organisations to discuss their experiences and new developments in Mass Spectrometry. The Conference is organized by ISMAS and co-sponsored by a number of Departments of Government of India, other scientific organisations and Industries. These triennial Conferencea on Mass Spectrometry have acquired International recognition in view of the participation of distinguished Mass Spectrometrists who are invited from different reputed Mass Spectrometric laboratories of the world. In view of the reputation of the ISMAS Conference, young Mass Spectrometrists working abroad also participate by sending their contributed papers.

ISMAS Discussion Meet on Mass Spectrometry

ISMAS intends to organize Discussion Meet on specific applications of mass spectrometry at research institutes and universities in different parts of India. The Discussion Meet is aimed to discuss applications of mass spectrometry in focused area of research and updating the practitioners with the latest developments in the specific field of interest. The meet also provides a forum for discussing the day-to-day problems encountered in a selected area and find possible solutions. The following event was organized in association with Inter-University Accelerator Centre, New Delhi:



ISMAS Symposium cum Workshop on Mass Spectrometry

ISMAS organizes Workshops on Mass Spectrometry at Research Institutes and Universities in different parts of India. These Workshops are aimed at introducing the subject of Mass Spectrometry to novices, updating the Mass Spectrometrists with the latest developments in the field, exposing the participants to innumerable applications of Mass Spectrometry and providing a common forum for discussing the day-to-day problems when working with a Mass Spectrometer. The programme of these Workshops consists of Tutorials, Panel Discussions, Research Scholar Presentations, Poster Presentations and Invited Lectures. The lectures include fundamentals of Mass Spectrometry, qualitative and quantitative aspects and data interpretation, maintenance of Mass Spectrometers, selection of a mass spectrometer, applications in various branches of science as well as recent advances in Mass Spectrometry. The lectures are supplemented by (i) Open-forum discussions on the experiences gained by the Resource Persons (faculty) as well as by the participants in running and maintaining the mass spectrometers and (ii) Visits to local laboratories equipped with mass spectrometers. During Workshop cum Symposium, Research Scholars are provided with an opportunity to make oral presentations of their research work. Cash Awards and Certificates of Merit are given to the best presentations. ISMAS Workshop has been renamed as ‘ISMAS Symposium cum Workshop Seminar on Mass Spectrometry’ with effect from April 2005. Till date, 13 Workshops have been Organized.
