Following the success of OURCON III in Pisa, Italy, the COST organizing commitee has proposed to hold OURCON IV is Ustron, Poland. The conference is scheduled from October the 17th to the 21st, 2016.
The conference subjects will include MSI methodology, 3D-MSI, MSI bioinformatics, multimodal imaging, clinical MSI, pharmacological MSI and new applications. The program also includes dedicated time for late breaking news and young researcher contributions through a “Young Guns” session. The OurCon series has quickly established itself as one of the major annual events in the field of mass spectrometry imaging. Previous conferences were organized in Ourense (2012), Antalya (2014) and Pisa (2015). OurCon IV will also be the inaugural meeting of the newly founded Mass Spectrometry Imaging Society, a non-for profit society dedicated to the promotion of mass spectrometry imaging and its widespread application.
More information will be available soon on the OURCON website.
