Welcome to ISIMS 2019

Welcome to the 28th International Conference on Ion Mobility Spectrometry in Hannover, Germany

Ion mobility spectrometry technology has grown from specialized security and military devices to high performance analytical instrumentation used in academic research and a broad field of applications; it has also become an enabling feature for mass spectrometry to measure the otherwise impossible. In the past 26 years, the annual conference of the International Society for Ion Mobility Spectrometry (ISIMS) has been serving as the essential link to a core group of ion mobility spectrometry researchers and pioneers. Once a year, we get together to share our research achievements, new ideas, experience and joys.

The conference encompasses many technical aspects of ion mobility spectrometry, from cutting edge research to novel applications. The conference also provides unique networking opportunities for you to join and enjoy the IMS research community. In addition, the short course, which precedes the conference, gives an excellent introduction to the theory and practice of IMS to those new to the field.

The 2019 ISIMS Conference is organized by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stefan Zimmermann, a member of the ISIMS advisory Board Christian-Robert Raddatz, and André Ahrens.


We look forward to seeing you at the ISIMS 2019 in Hannover, Germany.
