[08/01/2010] About 550 Chinese mass spectromists from Mainland China, North America, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore got together for the two and half days of the Third International Chinese Symposium on Mass Spectrometry (ICSMS) joint with the 2010 China Mass Spectrometry Society (CMSS) Annual Meeting held at the International Conference and Expo Center at Changchun, Jilin Province of China from July 30th to August 1st, 2010. ICSMS aims at advancing, promoting, and facilitating communications among Chinese mass spectrometrists; and for promoting and advancing mass spectrometry and its applications among Chinese globally. 
 
As a co-organizer, Chinese American Society for Mass Spectrometry (CASMS) is responsible in assembling a delegation, formed by the selection of CASMS members based on abstract competition and some board members. In late February 2010, CASMS sent an invitation letter for abstract submission. We received a total of 40 abstracts. After reviewing process led by Professors Lingjun Li and Xianlin Han, and consulting with the ICSMS local organizers, we selected a delegation of 23 members from academics, instruments and pharmaceutical companies to present at this conference (please see the attendee and their presentation title in the appendix).
 
The ICSMS officially started on July 30th 2010, with the opening remarks by the CMSS President, Dr. Jinying Li. Dr. Li welcomes everyone and appreciated the participation of CASMS, Taiwan Society for Mass Spectrometry (TSMS), Hong Kong Society of Mass Spectrometry (HKSMS).
 
The presentations of CASMS delegates were of excellent quality and well received. The meeting attendees were very impressed by the achievements of CASMS members and appreciated the opportunity of learning and discussing mass spectrometry related technologies. On the last day of the conference, CASMS delegates had a chance to take a picture with a background of beautiful Changbai Shan (incomplete). The additional item worthy of noting is that we were provided an opportunity of two-day sightseeing to Changbai Shan.
 
 
 
Finally, but most importantly, we thrilled by a warm, welcoming atmosphere; a friendly, caring staff ready to accommodate our every need; treatments that hard to forget for the years to come. We own a big thank to the Changchun local organizers, volunteers for their hard work during the conference. In addition, we appreciate the contributions from the colleagues of mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and overseas.
 
The last note worthy of mentioning is that the 4th ICSMS has been scheduled to be held in the summer of 2012 at southwest China. Dr. Karen Wang will lead selection of CASMS delegation and co-organizing the meeting. Once the date and location are finalized, we will post them in CASMS website. We invite you to visit www.casms.org regularly and encourage you to participate in the coming ICSMS. (Z. Gu and J. Li)
