During this symposium, 17 plenary lecturers including 5 academicians, 56 invited speakers, 54 contributed speakers and 26 young scientists presented their latest academic achievements in mass spectrometry, which were related to instrumentation developments, mass spectrometric fundamentals, as well last to he development and application of mass spectrometric technologies. 16 excellent young scientists and 30 excellent posters were awarded. The meeting provided a great opportunity for extensive academic and technical exchanges on research progress in the hope of promoting the development of mass spectrometry in China. In addition, many analytical instrument manufacturers, including Shimadzu, Agilent, Hitachi, Bruker and so on, exhibited their relevant instruments and technical application data.
The well-organized conference was highly appreciated by the attendees and sponsors, which pushes forward mass spectrometric research and applications and promotes the development of Science and Technology in mass spectrometry.
