After extended discussions, the ASMS Board has decided to postpone the 2021 annual conference from June to late October. This difficult decision was made to provide the best possible opportunity to gather face-to-face in 2021. While the 2020 virtual meeting (Reboot) was a success on several fronts, the organizers recognized that many of the critical elements of the traditional annual conference were less effective in a virtual format, notably poster sessions and exhibits.

The organizers are optimistic that the postponed meeting will take place in person at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, USA, and will mark a return to the annual conference that scientists expect and enjoy. The 2022 annual conference and beyond will remain in the traditional June timeframe.

The new dates for the 69th ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics are October 31 – November 4, 2021. The short courses are October 30–31, 2021. Abstract submission will open on May 1.
