Hybrid In-Person & Synchronous Virtual


We are pleased to invite you to the 3rd edition of the IMSS conference on mass spectrometry imaging. This 4-day hybrid conference aims to promote the exchange of ideas and start of new collaborations in the field of imaging mass spectrometry. This meeting will be hosted in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado (October 3 – 6, 2021) at The Antlers hotel and will also be live-streamed online.

We are looking forward to seeing you online or in Colorado Springs, the home of Pikes Peak and The U.S. Olympic Training Center!

Why attend?

After attending many virtual meetings and webinars in 2020 many of us are looking forward to the careful return of in-person meetings. With public health guidances in mind, we've adopted a hybrid approach this year. For those comfortable attending in person, we look forward to having face-to-face interactions. For those that are unable to attend in person, we will also live stream the conference so we can interact with our community at large. Using both approaches, we can bring back the meaningful scientific interactions we need as a community working on cut-edge scientific advances.

Vaccine Equity

We recognize the persistent global threat presented by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the unequal privilege associated with vaccine access that makes it possible to hold in-person meetings at this early stage. We stand in solidarity with the efforts of COVAX to expand equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines. Please join us in supporting this critical effort. Click here to make a donation to COVAX through Gavi (the Global Vaccine Alliance).

We are grateful for our generous sponsors! Please visit their websites and help support the imaging community.
