Introducing the newest members of the JAAS Advisory Board

We are delighted to announce the appointment of four new members to the JAAS Advisory Board. All four of our new members have been recipients of JAAS Emerging Investigator Lectureships in recent years. The Lectureship aims to recognise and support an emerging scientist working in the area of atomic spectrometry in the early stages of their independent career.

Lara Lobo, Oviedo University, Spain
Lara Lobo was one of two winners of the 2015 JAAS Emerging Investigator Lectureship, launched to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the journal. Read Lara’s recent critical review article on depth profile analysis with glow discharge spectrometry here.

Gerardo Gamez, Texas Tech University, USA
Gerardo Gamez was one of two winners of the 2015 JAAS Emerging Investigator Lectureship, launched to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the journal. Check out Garardo’s article on compressed sensing spectral imaging for plasma optical emission spectroscopy here.

Sohail Mushtaq, University of Bristol, UK
Sohail Mushtaq was the recipient of the 2016 JAAS Emerging Investigator Lectureship. Read Sohail’s article on “The production of doubly charged sample ions by “charge transfer and ionization” (CTI) in analytical GD-MS” featured in the journal’s fifth Young Analytical Scientists issue.

Márcia Mesko, Federal University of Pelotas, Brazil
Márcia Foster Mesko was the recipient of the 2018 JAAS Emerging Investigator Lectureship. Read her contribution to the recent Young Analytical Scientist Issue of the journal titled “Sample preparation of lipstick for further Cd and Pb determination by ICP-MS: is the use of complexing acids really necessary?

JAAS is guided by an international Editorial Board and Advisory Board – more information on our board members can be found on our website. We welcome the knowledge and expertise our four new Advisory Board members will bring to the journal and we very much look forward to working with them. Welcome to the JAAS team!

Will you be attending the 2018 Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry?

The 2018 Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry is being held on January 8th – January 13th 2018 on Amelia Island, Florida, USA

The biennial Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry is sponsored by the ICP Information Newsletter, Inc., a non-profit research organisation located in Hadley, Massachusetts and Lehigh Acres, Florida, and organised by Dr Ramon Barnes of the University Research Institute for Analytical Chemistry.

The 2018 Winter Conference explores the most recent applications, developments, fundamentals, and research achieved with analytical plasma sources including glow discharges, inductively coupled plasmas, laser sources, and microwave discharges for elemental trace and ultra-trace, stable isotope, and elemental speciation analyses.

This conference is the 20th in a series of biennial meetings featuring developments in chemical analysis employing electrical discharge sources known as “plasma spectrochemistry”. More than 500 international scientists are expected to attend with 300 invited and contributed presentations and 50 professional development short training courses being offered. The meeting will take place at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort on Amelia Island, Florida.

The pre-registration deadline is October 13, 2017. The registration deadline is December 8, 2017. More information can be found online.

Philippa Hughes, Executive Editor of JAAS will be in attendance and JAAS will also be sponsoring two poster prizes this year – good luck to all of the entrants!
