38th BMSS Annual Meeting 2017
ROYAL NORTHERN COLLEGE OF MUSIC,
124 Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9RD
05-07 SEP: 38th Annual Meeting & Exhibition
04-05 SEP: BMSS Introduction to MS Short Course
05 SEP: BMSS Careers in MS Workshop
07 SEP: BMSS Annual General Meeting
BMSS will hold its 38th Annual Meeting in Manchester at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM). The RNCM provides a central and stunningly contemporary setting for next year’s event. BMSS has reserved the entire venue to accommodate the conference, introduction to mass spectrometry course, careers workshop, vendor exhibition and the society’s annual general meeting. The conference dinner will be held offsite at The Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) on Wednesday the 6th September. The conference will also feature an informal social evening on Tuesday the 5th September at the ‘Dog Bowl’ offering complementary refreshments, food and 10-pin bowling (for those who wish to play).
Register soon, as places are filling up and the course is capped at80.
Discovery proteomics is now relatively straightforward, but the identification of a protein in a complex sample is immediately followed by quantitative questions – how much, how much does the abundance change? However, there is a rather bewildering choice of approaches to quantitative proteomics. First, the discrimination between absolute and relative quantification, second, the choice of labelling or label-free, third, the selection of appropriate label, fourth the choice between metabolic and chemical labelling and finally, the selection of the most appropriate software for data analysis, the use of appropriate multivariate statistical methods and the importance of adherence to data standards in deposition and reporting of quantitative data.
The course is a substantially enhanced version of previous, highly successful iterations.
There are more lectures and there will now be four small group sessions per participant.
This training day will comprise a mixture of formal lectures, delivered by experts in the field, and a series of small group teaching sessions that cover specific aspects.
The small group sessions will have a maximum of 10 participants, and attendees will attend four from a choice of 8-10.
By the end of the course, participants will gain a better understanding of the landscape of quantitative proteomics, have an appreciation of the breadth of approaches that can be adopted, and be introduced to the data analysis strategies that accompany quantitative proteomics experiments.
There are lower rates for students and early career researchers, and for members of the Biochemical Society.

Proteomics Methods Forum (PMF)
22nd - 23rd June 2017
Lady Margaret Hall, Norham Gardens, Oxford,OX2 6QA
The Proteomics Methods Forum (PMF) was created to allow researchers in the UK, both academic and industrial, the opportunity to meet one another and to exchange information on any and all methods and techniques relevant to the practice of proteomics. The forum was initiated and is organised by proteomics researchers without affiliation to a particular vendor or group.
The PMF is aimed particularly at those who are actually working 'at the coal face' such as facility and laboratory managers, 'hands-on' PIs, post-docs, and technicians. Discussions concentrate on practical areas such as the details of experimental protocols, use of proteomics software, and hands-on tips for HPLC and mass spectrometry.
The 11th Edition of the Summer School for “Mass Spectrometry in Biotechnology and Medicine” (MSBM), will be held at the Centre for Advanced Academic Studies (CAAS), Dubrovnik, Croatia, 2-8 July 2017. Once again MSBM features instruction by the leading international scientists in mass spectrometry. However, this year MSBM is working together with the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Massaspectrometrie (NVMS) to host the third International Mass Spectrometry School (IMSS-2017) on behalf of the International Mass Spectrometry Foundation (IMSF).
Additional information including registration, contact details and program is available here.
EPSRC UK National Mass Spectrometry Facility (NMSF) 30th Anniversary Symposium
The aim of the event is to celebrate the history and longevity of mass spectrometry and the EPSRC UK National Mass Spectrometry Facility (NMSF) at Swansea, including former guises. The EPSRC NMSF, situated within Swansea University Medical School, is open to all university research groups in the UK, with priority given to EPSRC-funded research, and also has a collaborative research portfolio and limited commercial service capacity.
It has been 30 years since the first UK service centre was set up, the SERC Mass Spectrometry Centre. This later became the EPSRC National Mass Spectrometry Service Centre (NMSSC), and in 2012 became the NMSF. It has also been 40 years since Prof. John Beynon (FRS) set up the Royal Society Research Unit; John had a massive influence on modern mass spectrometry, most notably accurate mass measurement, required for publication of small novel compounds.
The event will highlight past, current and future capabilities and expertise by having a variety of speakers covering academics, former employees, MAP Chairs, facility directors, and current users, including Prof. Helen Cooper, Prof. Malcolm Clench, Prof John Langley and Prof. Michael Morris. Looking forward, we also want to showcase the facility with local/national academics/businesses for future research/commercial projects with a trade fair and research poster competition running throughout the day.
Further details including the event programme and registration can be found here.
The Centre for Mass Spectrometry Imaging/Biomolecular Sciences Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University in conjunction with the British Mass Spectrometry Society is pleased to announce the fourth Mass Spectrometry Imaging Symposium.
This event will showcase the latest advances in MS Imaging, featuring presentations from internationally renowned scientists including Prof. Dr. Bernhard Spengler from Justus Liebig University Giessen, Germany and Professor Mark Brouard, from the University of Oxford, UK.
Previous events have attracted over 100 delegates from academia and industry.
We are also offering an open call for oral presentations and posters, with a special oral presentation section for current PhD Students. To be considered for an oral presentation or poster, please submit your abstract to Dr Jamie Young (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the 28th of April 2017. Successful applicants will be notified by the 5th of May. Abstracts should be no more than 150 words in length, and include the title, authors and affiliations. Please also notify us if you wish to be considered for an oral or poster presentation.
Exhibition and Sponsorship packages are also available.
Further information including registration is available here.
We are pleased to announce that the British Geological Survey will host the next Stable Isotope Mass Spectrometry User Group (SIMSUG) meeting on 5th - 7th July 2017 in Keyworth, Nottingham.
SIMSUG 2017 aims to provide a dynamic forum for discussing state of the art approaches, methodologies and new application in stable isotope research and mass spectrometry.
Presentations by early career researchers, including PhD students, are particularly welcome and keynote lectures will be interspersed throughout presentations
A call for presentations will come later this year and registration will open on the 1st April. If you would like to attend, please register your interest by email (email@example.com).
The vision for HUPO2017 Congress on “Integrated Proteomics for Healthcare Systems” is to create a meeting that will bring together world leaders with a new generation of scientists to promote HUPO’s capabilities for advancing our knowledge of the Human Proteome and the impact this will have on our understanding of health, disease and ageing. The Congress will celebrate past achievements and present new disruptive advances in proteomics. This will be achieved by a balanced scientific programme that takes into account previous milestone developments in proteomics, the current state of the art as well as newly arising areas and opportunities. The programme will include key outreach events as well as sessions devoted to each of the twelve (12) current HUPO Initiatives and to the three (3) pillars of the HPP.
