WIMS 2016 is now over. Looks like our concept was a great success.

Lots of time for exchanging on technologies, strategies and sharing technical experience. Thanks to all of you for your great contribution.

See you soon again in the Corsair City

Mélanie, Hélène, Charles and their collaborators



Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The first Workshop on Imaging Mass Spectrometry (WIMS) will take place in Saint-Malo from Tuesday 29 - Thursday 31 March 2016. From now on, practical courses and hands-on trainings organized annually by the Protim facility will be shaped as a larger event open to experts but also to beginners. We invite all colleagues active in the field of Imaging Mass Spectrometry or newcomers to the technology to join us for what we hope will be an outstanding user meeting.

It is our aim to design a high-quality scientific programme reflecting current developments in the field of Imaging Mass Spectrometry. Round tables chaired by experts will stimulate discussion and debate on the many technical issues and applications of the technology. Industrial partners will present their solutions in IMS and perform demos on instruments and softwares. For a limited number of participants, hands-on trainings on various instruments will take place at both the Protim and BIBS facilities.

Thanks to a great support from seven industrial partners and by sponsoring from several institutions, WIMS2016 offers very low and attractive registration fees for promoting attendance of students and technicians, most of whom do generally perform experiments but rarely participate to annual congresses in the field.

WIMS will be more than just a forum for exchange of knowledge. Saint-Malo represents an ideal place for networking, and for meeting old and making new friends. The range of options for social programmes in the city is second to none, with exceptional opportunities for sightseeing, soaking up history, dining, entertainment, arts, culture and sea sports guaranteed to captivate participants and their partners.

We all look forward to welcoming you in the Corsair city !
