Resarchers involved in novel instrumentation and new LC–MS fields, such as nanotechnology and microfluidics, UPLC, low flow rate spray techniques, proteomics and systems biology will also be present. A special session on metabolomics in collaboration with the Metabolomics Society has also been organized, as well as a series of lectures on the future of this exciting technique.

The Roland W. Frei opening lecture will be delivered by Professor Ruedi Aebersold from the ETH Zurich with a presentation called LC–MS–MS Methods for the Discovery and Measurement of the Proteome. Professor Jack Henion — a pioneer in the filed of LC/MS — will give a talk on the History and Future Outlook for LC–MS. Quality of Life, an Integrated Future of Medicine and Nutrition Research: Challenges for LC–MS Technology will be addressed by Professor Jan van der Greef from TNO Quality of Life and the LACDR at Leiden University.

Aerosol—Cloud-Climate Interactions: Possibilities and Limits of Off-line and On-line Mass Spectrometric Techniques will be discussed by Professor Thorsten Hoffmann from the University of Johannes Gutenberg-Universitat Mainz; Professor Age Smilde from the University of Amsterdam will discuss LC–MS and Multivariate Analysis: a Happy Marriage?; and Professor Thomas Hankemeier from the LACDR and Netherlands Metabolomics Centre at Leiden University. will talk on Improving the Analytical Strategies for Metabolomics.

The full programme, including a full list of speakers and details on the poster session can be obtained at the website for the event (see contact details below).

The international Association of Environmental Analytical Chemistry will be conferring the Roland W. Frei Award for the best poster presentation by a young scientist. The exhibition is key part of the conference and all major companies involved in LC–MS will be present to showcase what they offer chromatographers.

There is a series of short introductory courses running from 10–11 November to stimulate newcomers to the world of LC–MS, interpretation, sample pretreatment and multivariate statistics/chemometrics.

The scenic town of Montreux is located approximately 100 km east of Geneva along the north shore of Lac Léman and can be easily reached from Geneva's Cointrin Airport by rail or road (A1 freeway to Lausanne) A9 direction Vevey/Montreux).
