On behalf of the organizing committee, it is a pleasure to invite you to participate at the 17th Annual Workshop on Emerging High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry (HRMS) and LC-MS/MS Applications in Environmental Analysis and Food Safety.
This workshop is a scientific meeting to foster dialogue among scientists in government, academia, and industry to further develop, investigate, and troubleshoot challenges related to advances in emerging HRMS and LC-MS/MS applications in environmental analysis and food safety. The main objective of the workshop is to evaluate practical applications of high-resolution mass spectrometry and tandem mass spectrometry to screening and quantification of organic contaminants in environmental and food matrices.
The theme of the 2021 workshop is “Non-target screening with high resolution mass spectrometry for detecting and identifying emerging contaminants relevant to human and environmental health and food safety”.
Under current gathering and travel COVID-19 restrictions, we will be holding the 2021 workshop virtually with Webex.com. Please take a moment to explore the website and keep yourself informed of the latest updates.
Scientists carrying research studies leading to advances in the understanding of water pollution and prevention through innovative analytical approaches can be nominated for the Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz International Prize for Water (PSIPW ). Six participants of the 17th HRMS and LC-MS/MS Workshop were awarded this year with a Distinguished Research Grant and Young Researcher Grants.
Selected papers presented at this workshop describing state of the art applications will be published in the Methods X (https://www.journals.elsevier.com/methodsx/ ). There will be student awards given to student presentations that are judged to be of the highest quality (presentations must be oral). The scientific committee will judge all presentations that are eligible (enrollment confirmed by your academic advisor during Abstract Submission) to determine the winners.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at the 17th Annual Workshop on Emerging High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry (HRMS) and LC-MS/MS Applications in Environmental Analysis and Food Safety, on October 14-15, 2021.
Abstract submission is to be completed during the workshop registration process by the presenting author. All abstracts must be submitted as word files and adhere to the formatting requirements specified in the abstract template (pdf) provided below.
Use the Register page to submit your abstract.
Each main presenter can give up to two oral presentations, and any number of poster presentations.
Timing limits: regular oral presentation (15 min + 5 min question period); poster 5 min (question period at the end of the Poster Session).
Questions for the presenters will be sent by attendees via Q&A option and read by the Session Moderator.
All presentations (PowerPoint or Adobe Acrobat pdf) will be presented via Webex.com and need to be submitted to the workshop organizers (email@example.com) prior to the workshop.
There will be a Practice Session for all the presenters via Webex.com prior to the workshop.
