The International Mass Spectrometry Foundation (IMSF) is a non-profit scientific organization in the field of mass spectrometry. The Foundation operates the International Mass Spectrometry Society, which consists of 36 member societies and sponsors the International Mass Spectrometry Conference that is held once every three years. From 2012 this is changed to every two years.

Aims[edit]

The IMSF has four aims:

  • 1) organizing international conferences and workshops in mass spectrometry
  • 2) improving mass spectrometry education
  • 3) standardizing terminology in the field
  • 4) aiding in the dissemination of mass spectrometry through publications

Conferences[edit]

The first International Mass Spectrometry Conference was held in London in 1958 and 41 papers were presented. Since then, conferences were held every three years to 2012, and every two years since, as indicated below.[1]
