The Irish Mass Spectrometry Society
- 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 and if possible a half-day event later in the year.
The first meeting of Irish mass spectrometry users was in 1987 when a very successful meeting was held in on May 28th in UCD Belfield. (Programme)
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 reactivated 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.
