BMSS42 Abstract Submission: MAIN SESSIONS

Welcome to the BMSS42 (2022) Abstract Submission Page for the MAIN SESSIONS

The abstract categories for this year's BMSS Annual Meeting are as follows:

  • Applications - We would like to encourage abstract submissions from a wide range of applications focused area including, but not limited to, aerospace, cancer, archaeology, environmental, energy/climate change, pharmaceuticals. 
  • Data Analysis Tools - We would like to encourage abstract submissions from those developing data interpretation tools. These can be for any analyte, any application and using any coding language.
  • Structural Analysis - We would like to encourage abstract submissions from areas including, but not limited to, conformation analysis using approaches such as ion mobility and HDX, native protein analysis via native MS, computational approaches for structural analysis and MSMS approaches for structural elucidation.
  • New Instrumentation - We would like to encourage abstract submissions from any areas encompassing instrument development, including but not limited to, developments in integrated ion mobility and mass analysis technology. 
  • Novel Ionisation Approaches - We would like to encourage abstract submissions from any areas working towards new ionisation modalities 
  • Omics - We would like to encourage abstract submissions from areas encompassing metabolomics, lipidomics and proteomics, and workflows that use any combinations of these approaches. We encourage abstracts from traditional chromatography-based analysis, as well as in situ approaches such as imaging.
  • Separation Science - We would like to encourage abstract submissions from areas encompassing gas and liquid chromatography, ion mobility and indeed any other separation approaches you are using in your workflows.
  • Multimodal Analysis- we would like to encourage abstract submissions that utilise multiple complementary MS approaches, or Imaging, separation, MS and/or MSMS in a single workflow, or utilise MS alongside other modalities such as, but not limited to, microscopy to address a particular challenge.
  • By Popular Demand - If you feel that none of the above quite fit your research topic, please submit to this one and we will group abstracts accordingly after the submission closes.

Abstract deadline: 27th May 2022

Abstracts should take the following format:

Aims/Introduction (600 characters)

Experimental and Results (1500 characters)

Conclusions (600 characters)

Please note ALL co-authors must be included at the abstract submission stage on the next page.

This year you will have four options for abstract submissions:

  1. An In-Person Oral Presentation: These will be the traditional 20 minute oral presentations in the format of 15 minutes to present + 5 minutes for questions. You must register for the on-site conference and be available and prepared to present in person. By submitting your abstract you consent to your oral presentation being recorded for ALL registered delegates to access.
  2. An In-Person Flash Poster Presentation: This year, flash oral presentations will remain in addition to poster presentations at the on-site (in-person) meeting. Flash orals will take the format of 5 minutes to present and should therefore comprise only a few slides, with presenters also preparing an accompanying poster. Questions will not be taken during the session, these will be taken during presentation of the accompanying poster. You do not need to submit a separate abstract for your poster, they are one and the same and the same data should be presented. We strongly encourage early career researchers to submit abstracts for these presentations. You must register for the on-site conference and be available and prepared present in person. By submitting your abstract you consent to your oral presentation being recorded for ALL registered delegates to access on-line.
  3. An In-Person Poster Presentation: This year will see the return of traditional poster presentations. You must register for the on-site conference and be available and prepared to present in person.
  4. An On-Line Poster Presentation: An on-line alternative to traditional poster presentations is also available this year. They will take the format of a pdf (with the optional addition of a 5 min MP4 summary). This option should be selected for: anyone who does not wish to/cannot commit to attending in-person and have chosen instead to register for the on-line (digital) channel only.

Enquiries: Should be directed to the BMSS Papers Secretary: paperssec@bmss.org.uk

NOTE: ALL Partner abstracts for inclusion in the scientific programme should be submitted via the partner submission page, access for which can be obtained by contacting the BMSS Papers Secretary: paperssec@bmss.org.uk
