Welcome to OurCon V

Dear friends and colleagues,

On behalf of the organizing committee we are delighted to welcome you to OurCon V, a conference dedicated to the application and development of mass spectrometry imaging. The conference will be held in Doorn, The Netherlands, on September 25th-28th, 2017. The conference subjects will include MSI methodology, 3D-MSI, MSI bioinformatics, multimodal imaging, clinical MSI, pharmacological MSI and new applications. The program also includes dedicated time for late breaking news and young researcher contributions through a “Young Guns” session. The OurCon series has quickly established itself as one of the major annual events in the field of mass spectrometry imaging. Previous conferences were organized in Ourense (2012), Antalya (2014), Pisa (2015) and Ustron (2016). OurCon V will also be the inaugural meeting of the newly founded Mass Spectrometry Imaging Society, a non-for profit society dedicated to the promotion of mass spectrometry imaging and its widespread application.

We look forward to welcoming you in Doorn!

On behalf of the conference organizers:

Pieter Kooijman, Local organizing committee
Liam A. McDonnell, MSIS
