<< Announcement >>
The 50th. Annual Conference on Mass Spectrometry Kyoto, Japan, 2002 will be held from Wed. May 15th. through Fri. May 17th., 2002 in Kyoto. We organizers are planning a special symposium on a broad range of topics in the ever growing mass spectrometry to gather and discuss with many mass spectrometrists, users, instrument designers and engineers, and manufacturers. Renowned scientists from around the world will be invited for special lectures.

The purposes of the conference are;

  1. To review the current state of mass spectrometry. The practical progress of ionization technics and mass analyzer is expanding the applicable fields of mass spectrometry. To know the molecular weights of compounds is quite important as the first step of the various study. High throuput technics in pretreatment also expand practical utilities of mass spectrometry.

  2. To review the possibilities of mass spectrometry to overcome the current difficulties and to meet the user's needs, that other analytical methods can scarcely solve, for the future progress of mass spectrometry.

  3. To bring up young researchers on mass spectrometry who get the chance to use mass spectrometers and have the results of their studies in an international field. The future of mass spectrometry grows up with them.

We hope the 50th Annual Conference on Mass Spectrometry Kyoto, Japan, 2002 will be successful.

Please make arrangements for a hotel by yourself. We will not arrange it. Famous festival called "Aoi-Matsuri" is held in May and hotels in Kyoto are expected to be full. So it is desirable that you make arrangements for a hotel early.
This is the list of hotels near the venue. We hope it will be helpfull for you.
