JASIS Poster Prize Winners 2016

The annual seminar “A Guide to Plasma Spectrochemistry – From sample digestion to practical analytical examples” was held at the JASIS Conference in Makuhari, Japan on 6th September 2016.

One of the  winners of the Poster Prize competition was Ms Mari Aida from Tokyo Institute Technology with her poster “Desorption/ionization mass spectrometry method for mapping of skin-surface compounds using low power laser and non-thermal plasma”.

The other winner was Mr Yuuki Tanaka from Kyoto University with his poster “Evaluating the changes in bone mineral balance for CKD and Diabetic model rat through the Calcium isotopic signatures”.

Congratulations to Yuuki and Mari!

European Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry

Dear Plasma Spectrochemists!

The registration deadline for abstracts for the oncoming European Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry held in Sankt Anton Austria (19 – 24 February 2017) is approaching!

PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACTS FOR THE EWCPS2017
until September 30 2016!

(NOTE: It is also about time to book your accommodation in advance since the venue is very popular – and absolutely worth coming!!! A (rapidly decreasing!) contingent of hotel rooms is still blocked exclusively for conference attendees. Please see more important details on the booking.)

We are also happy to announce that we have awarded 10 YOUNG SCIENTISTS GRANTS – for PhD students to support their participation in the EWCPS2017. The Scientific Committee of EWCPS2017 was in charge of the selection of the grant winners. The ten awardees are already informed about their successful applications and details about the awardees will be available online, soon.

Please note that the nomination deadlines for the PLASMA SPECTROCHEMISTRY awards are approaching, as well:

EUROPEAN AWARD FOR PLASMA SPECTROCHEMISTRY – The “European Award for Plasma Spectrochemistry” is sponsored by Agilent and promotes analytical plasma spectro-chemical developments and applications in Europe. The prize is awarded for a single outstanding piece of work or for continued important contributions in the field.
Application deadline: August 31 2016. More details and application conditions here.

EUROPEAN RISING STAR AWARD FOR PLASMA SPECTROCHEMISTRY –The new “European Rising Star Award for Plasma Spectrochemistry” sponsored by Agilent should honor and promote outstanding contributions of upcoming younger scientists at the beginning of their career within the field of plasma spectrochemistry. Application deadline: August 31 2016. More details and application conditions here.

Looking forward to receiving your abstracts for the European Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry 2017 in Sankt Anton!

The 2nd National Conference on Mass Spectrometric Analysis (CNMS) of Chinese Chemical Societywas held on October 16-19, 2015 in Hangzhou, China. This conference was hosted by the Chinese Chemical Society and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). The 2nd NCMS was organized by Mass Spectrometry Division of Chinese Chemical Society and the Department of Chemistry of Zhejiang University. More than 1000 conventioneers including scientists, experts and students attended the conference.

The opening ceremony of the conference was chaired by Prof.Yuanjiang Pan from Zhejiang University. Prof. Jianhong Luo, the vice-president of Zhejiang University, Prof. Hongyuan Chen from Nanjing University, and Prof. Qiankun Zhuang from NSFC gave the opening speeches.
