open for all IONICON PTR-MS Users

In the framework of the 6th International PTR-MS Conference 2013 we organize for the very first time a User Day dealing exclusively with your experiences, questions and problems concerning PTR-MS. The topics and the content of this User Day will be determined solely by the attending PTR-MS users. An external expert panel, IONICON experts, as well as the whole audience will discuss your hot topics and burning questions, but also highly specific cases in several thematically grouped sessions.

The first IONICON PTR-MS User Day offers you:

  • The possibility to discuss your own experience and issues concerning PTR-TOFMS and PTR-QMS (e.g. ToF data processing and evaluation, software evolution, specific measurement setups, etc.).
  • An international expert panel commenting on exactly these topics
  • IONICON experts will share their expertise
  • Input and opinions from PTR-MS users from all over the world sitting in the audience

Prior to the User Day we will ask all participants for the submission of a short abstract and one ppt-slide describing the issue you want to discuss. Based on these inputs we will set the main session topics and assign a time slot to you where you can present your topic as the basis for a fruitful discussion.
