The SGMS award is awarded to a promising scientist working in Switzerland or a promising Swiss scientist working abroad, for outstanding independent research in the field of mass spectrometry. At the time of the award nomination deadline the candidate should be younger than 45. The nomination should be done by a senior colleague, but self-nominations are also welcome. Up to two letters of support can be submitted, together with a CV and a publication list of the nominee. Deadline for the SGMS award 2020 is January 31th 2020.

The SGMS board will soon start planning the 2020 meeting and update the website as soon as possible. The last two meetings were preceeded by the SGMS School and were a great success. We would very much like to hear suggestions for the 2020 school and for future SGMS speakers.
Swiss Group for Mass Spectrometry
The Swiss Group for Mass Spectrometry is a society that furthers interactions between scientists working in the various fields of mass spectrometry, doing basic research from gas phase ion chemistry to life sciences, in academia, industry and regulation. The SGMS was founded in 1982 (see history). Roughly two hundred individuals are listed as members. The SGMS also is an Associate Member Society of the Swiss Chemical Society (SCS).
