From October 28 to 30, 2015, the 5th World Chinese Mass Spectrometry Conference (WCMSC) hosted by the China Mass Spectrometry Society (CMSS) was held in Beijing. This conference was staged in conjunction with the 2015 Beijing Conference and Exhibition on Instrumental Analysis (BCEIA). Delegates from CMSS, Taiwan Society for Mass Spectrometry (TSMS), Hong Kong Society of Mass Spectrometry (HKSMS) and Chinese American Society for Mass Spectrometry (CASMS) were invited to give talks at the five oral sessions lasting two and half days. These sessions were well attended with more than 200 attendees. The Q&A period after each talk was lively. Poster presentations were also given during the conference.

CASMS sent a delegation of 12 members to attend the 5th WCMSC. Among them, seven members were originally invited by CMSS to give keynote lectures at the BCEIA conference. Five additional members were selected by the Executive Committee Members of CASMS via a teleconference discussion to represent different sectors of our society. No financial support was given by CASMS to the delegates. These delegates gave presentations covering a wide range of topics (see Appendix A shown below).

In addition to attending the Opening Ceremony of the 5th WCMSC and the scientific sessions, the CASMS delegates actively interacted with the representatives of our sister societies during the conference to renew our friendship and establish new contacts. Some of the pictures taken during the conference are attached in Appendix B. We would like to thank the Organizing Committee and other members of the leadership team of CMSS and many volunteers for their help, the warm welcome and gracious hospitality.

 

 Dr. Jinying Li, President of CSMS, gave a welcome speech at a reception. Several delegates of CASMS and TSMS gave brief talks on their personal experiences of working in the field of mass spectrometry.
