The first Workshop on Imaging Mass Spectrometry (WIMS) will take place in Saint-Malo from Tuesday 29 - Thursday 31 March 2016. From now on, practical courses and hands-on trainings organized annually by the Protim facility will be shaped as a larger event open to experts but also to beginners. We invite all colleagues active in the field of Imaging Mass Spectrometry or newcomers to the technology to join us for what we hope will be an outstanding user meeting.
It is our aim to design a high-quality scientific programme reflecting current developments in the field of Imaging Mass Spectrometry. Round tables chaired by experts will stimulate discussion and debate on the many technical issues and applications of the technology. Industrial partners will present their solutions in IMS and perform demos on instruments and softwares. For a limited number of participants, hands-on trainings on various instruments will take place at both the Protim and BIBS facilities.
