The start of a busy conference season

We attend many conferences throughout the year, but we are about to enter our busiest time over the next few months.

There are some key meetings that we attend each year, and some new meetings that we are attending for the first time. It all makes for an exciting few months, so I wanted to share with you some of meetings we’re going to; if you’re going too, we’d love the chance to catch up with you, and hear about your latest research.

2013 AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo – April 28th – May 1st, 2013

AOCS MontrealThe American Oil Chemists’ Society’s annual meeting is taking place in Montreal this year. The meeting is a global business forum on fats, oils, surfactants, detergents, and related materials, and attracts more than 1,600 delegates. Progenesis CoMet, our analysis software for lipids and other small molecules, will be the main focus of our presentations; and we are excited to show some of the people we met at this meeting last year the latest developments in version 2.0. We will be represented by Mark Bennett and Jonathan McSayles on booth #903.

1st Belgium-Netherlands Joint Symposium on Metabolomics: Translational Approaches in Metabolomics – May 13th – 14th, 2013

We are constantly on the lookout for new conferences with a focus on metabolomics, and the Belgium-Netherlands Symposium is the first meeting of this group of researchers, so we are looking forward to showing Progenesis CoMet and finding out more about the metabolomics research in this region. The meeting aims introduce the metabolomics approach to researchers who are new to the field, and around 100 delegates are expected. Agnès Corbin will be attending the meeting, which is being held in Spa, Belgium.

61st ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics

ASMSWe have been attending ASMS for many years; it is probably the largest conference we attend in terms of delegate numbers, exhibitors and posters on display. We are working hard on some very exciting new CoMet-related developments which will be shown for the first time at ASMS – watch this space for more news!

We are sending a large team to the conference, which is being held in Minneapolis this year. Mark Bennett and Jonathan McSayles will be managing  our booth (#54) so please stop by. Dr Andy Borthwick (Applications Scientist), Dr Ian Morns (Development Manager) and Dr Jackson Pope (Software Developer) will also be in attendance. Please contact us if you would like to arrange a meeting, as we know what a busy week it will be!

VIII ItPA National Congress – June 18th – 21st, 2013

ItPAThis is the Italian Proteomics Society’s annual meeting, and it being held in Padua, Italy this year. There are a number of high profile speakers at this year’s meeting which has sessions on Human Proteomics, Technological Innovation, Non-Human Proteomics and Systems Biology & Informatics.  Juliet Evans is attending the conference, so please stop by our exhibition stand and find out the latest Progenesis product news.

9th Annual Conference of the Metabolomics Society – July 1st – 4th, 2013

4_MetabolomicsThis international meeting of the Metabolomics Society is held in a different location each year, and this year Glasgow, Scotland is the location of choice. We’re very happy about this, as it is only a short journey from our base in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the North East of England.

We’re delighted to be Silver Sponsors of the meeting, where we will show the exciting new advances in Progenesis CoMet that will be released later this year. There are 700 delegates expected to attend this meeting which brings together a diverse mixture of scientists from many disciplines.

Our booth at the meeting will be looked after by Martin Wells, Juliet Evans, Agnès Corbin and Dr Ian Morns, our development manager. It promises to be a great 4 days.

That’s not all….

We are still confirming our attendance at some meetings in Europe, so please check our events page regularly to see if we are attending a meeting close to you. After the Glasgow Metabolomics meeting, we have a short conference break in August before the 12th HUPO world Congress which is being held in Yokohama, Japan, Sept 14th – 18th.
