1st IMSIS Conference

Annual Conference on Mass Spectrometry Imaging and Integrated Topics

About the Conference
This is the first meeting of the of the newly formed International Mass Spectrometry Imaging Society which is comprised of Mass Spectrometry Imaging Society (MSIS) (Europe) and Imaging Mass Spectrometry Society (IMSS) (US).  As with the past OurCon conferences that were organized jointly between IMSS and MSIS, this conference is a global forum on mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) research.

Centre Mont Royal is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Montreal known as the Golden Square, renowned for its rich architecture, fine shopping, museums, and great dining.  Centre Mont Royal is also located amidst numerous hotels within seconds walking distance. The venue is directly accessible by an underground parking lot which leads directly into the Centre.  The Centre is also accessible through the underground Metro, Peel Station.

Montréal is the second most populous city in Canada and is the largest city in Canada's Québec province.  Founded in 1642 as Ville-Marie or City of Mary and is set on an island in the Saint Lawrence River.  The City was named after Mt. Royal, the triple-peaked hill at its heart. Its boroughs, many of which were once independent cities, include neighbourhoods ranging from cobblestoned, French colonial Vieux-Montréal – with the Gothic Revival Notre-Dame Basilica at its centre – to bohemian Plateau.

We look forward to welcoming you to Montreal!
