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 Associated Member Society of the Swiss Chemical Society (SCS).

SGMS membership is open to individual persons working in the field of mass spectrometry, and to active sponsoring members. For more details, please consult the statutes of the society

Registration for the 2018 meeting is now OPEN

Confirmed Speakers at the 2018 SGMS meeting

2018 SGMS School Program FTMS Fundamentals

The 2018 pre-SGMS workshop is about “FTMS Fundamentals”. It will focus on teaching and discussing current knowledge in Fourier transform mass spectrometry (FTMS), with a particular focus on Orbitrap FTMS fundamentals and FTMS data processing. The program is built around didactic lectures and practical workshops, with a particular emphasis on hands-on problem solving, obtaining practical knowledge of data processing, and interaction with the teachers. The workshop is designed for the FTMS end-users in academic and industrial analytical departments, with a focus on industrial scientists, advanced graduate students, post-docs and scientists in the areas of analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry and biotechnology.

Student Meeting Reports

The SGMS regularly supports students with travel awards. This is possible due to our generous sponsors. One of the requirements is that the awardee writes a small report (with a nice picture). These reports can now be found online HERE!
