On behalf of the Local Committee, we would like to invite you to attend SIMS Europe 2018, which takes place in Münster from September 16 to 18, 2018. Covering the complete breadth of development and applications in SIMS will stay the major goal of this conference. To reflect the trend towards imaging applications of SIMS, this area will not only continue to be covered strongly, but we will incorporate more complementary imaging mass spectrometric techniques to broaden the scope of the meeting.


We look forward to an exciting SIMS Europe 2018 conference and to seeing you in Münster!
