Hi all

The IMSS committee agreed to update you about the IMSS conference closer to our original scheduled date of May 14th. As you know, we are still in the midst of the Covid19 outbreak. While our government and EU member states begin easing certain restrictions, ‘Phase 5’ of the Irish restrictions won’t come into force until August 10th. Please see here for more details about these government policies.


Since we can’t hold an event before August 10th and it is still unclear how the next few weeks to months will evolve, we will instead provide you with an update on August 30th. This will allow the committee approximately 3 weeks more to gauge the level of risk from Covid19 and determine how best to proceed with vendors, attendees and our conference location.


Any tickets purchased by attendees via Eventbrite will be valid for our rescheduled event. Those who would like a refund please contact us via our website and we will arrange this for you as soon as possible.


Due to this postponement, we have extended our poster and student/postdoc speaker competition deadline until August 30th. Any new entrants will be added to any abstracts already received.


If you have any questions, please contact us through our website contact page.


Many thanks for all your support and help,


We will continue to work with all attendees and vendors to provide another successful IMSS conference.

Stay safe,


IMSS 2020 Committee

About the IMSS

What is the IMSS?

The Irish Mass Spectrometry Society, IMSS, is a voluntary society with the aim of providing a forum for practitioners of Mass Spectrometry in Ireland. The Society is run by a committee elected every two years and aims to hold one full-day scientific meeting in May each year.


The first meeting of Irish mass spectrometry users was in 1987 when a very successful meeting was held on May 28th in UCD, Belfield. In September 1993, an MS users group was set up. An inaugural meeting was held in May 1994, a Society was formed and a committee put in place. The name "The Irish Mass Spectrometry Society" was adopted at the 1996 AGM.


The Society was re-activated in 2007 following a few years of dormancy after the AGM of 2003. The Society is an Institutional Affiliate of the International Mass Spectrometry Foundation, organisers of the biennial IMSC meeting.
