The Meeting programme will be divided into a plenary with keynote lectures, short oral presentations, poster and exhibition sessions. Dr Enrico Davoli of the Capo Laboratorio Spettrometria di Massa Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche "Mario Negri", Milan, Italy, has accepted an invitation to present the plenary lecture, which will be titled "A Review of Advanced MS Techniques in Environmental Studies: Advantages and Current Limitations".

The first session will focus on environmental analysis and will be chaired by Mark Sykes from FERA, the Food and Environment Research Agency, UK. It will feature a keynote presentation from Dave Wood, Laboratory Director of Scientific Analysis Laboratories Ltd, Manchester, UK titled "MS Techniques for Environmental Analysis: a View from a Commercial Analytical Laboratory". This session will also feature presentations by Stephen Lock from Applied Biosystems on "Quantitation and Confirmation of Pesticides, Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products in Environmental Water Samples" and by Mark Sykes on "Results of FAPAS Pesticide Residue Proficiency Testing — is Mass Spectrometry Capturing Everything?"

Session two focuses on Food and Nutrition and will be chaired by Simon Hird. The keynote presentation for this session will be delivered by Dr Bert Poepping of Eurofins Germany in association with Applied BioSystems. It will be on "Allergen Detection, Quantitation and Confirmation in Nuts, Cereals, Milk etc by LC–MS–MS". Other topics covered in this session include "LC–UV–MS-TOF profiling of Glucosinolates" by Don Clarke of CSL and "High throughput Screening for over 1000 Pesticides in Fruit and Vegetable using a Hybrid Triple Quadrupole–linear Ion trap LC–MS–MS system" by Stephen Lock from Applied Biosystems.

A final session on mixed topics, chaired by Professor Graham Bonwick of the University of Chester, will end the day.

The meeting will be linked with the Food and Nutrition SIG (FNSIG) coordinated by Dr Simon Hird. The meeting will also form part of a conference week, 22–26 March 2010, of three meetings organized by Professor Chris Smith, which will focus on nanotechnology and food, as well as food science and technology.
