This conference is meant to provide an international forum by which organic and inorganic mass spectrometry researchers and users have the opportunity to share their knowledge and exchange ideas on ionization principles in particular.
Fundamental aspects and recent advances in creating ions by:
Electrospray ionization (ESI), matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI), electron impact ionization (EI), chemical ionization (CI), , atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI), surface-enhanced laser desorption ionization (SELDI), soft laser desorption ionization (SLD), laser-induced acoustic desorption (LIAD), secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS), ambient mass spectrometry (AMS) sources, inductively coupled plasma (ICP), glow discharge (GD), microwave induced plasma (MIP), field desorption, fast atom bombardment (FAB), thermospray ionization, proton-transfer reactor (PTR), thermal ionization mass spectrometry (TIMS), resonance ionization mass spectrometry (RIMS) and many more...
