Coronavirus (Covid-19) and IMSC 2021 - Hybrid format UPDATE
IMSC2020 - coronavirus

Dear all, the Coronavirus pandemic situation are getting better and we hope to have a great face-to-face conference and expect you all in Rio. However, some travels difficulties from other countries to Brazil are still under sanctions. Therefore, the organizing committee of IMSC 2021 and IMSF decided to make the conference even better, in a hybrid format.  

  With your registration you will be able to come to Rio and participate of the conference, and also have access to all recorded lectures in our online platform, for three months.  December is summer time in Brazil and Rio should be in its warmest and sunniest week. Some speakers may have the same sanctions and won´t be able to come in person to Rio, for those the lecture will be happening remotely. (At least 60% of the conference will be held in person).


Our conference courses will be upgraded and will happen online and in a synchronous way, stay tune for the upgrades!!


We will keep you updated through our regular channels.

On behalf of the Brazilian Mass Spectrometry Society (BrMASS) and the scientific committee of Rio 2021, we would like to welcome all of you to the 23rd International Mass Spectrometry Conference (Rio 2021) – December 12th – 16th, 2021 - Rio de Janeiro - Brazil. For the first time ever, the IMSC will take place below the Equador, in the south hemisphere of the globe. For us Brazilians, it’s indeed a pleasure that our country was the first choice, not only because of our natural beauties, but also for our growing contribution to science and MS. Brazilians are also known for their warm hospitality (we very much enjoy hosting visitors from all over the world), and together with the city of Rio de Janeiro, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, we are ready to host the 23rd edition of IMSC. The IMSC Rio 2021 venue is the Sheraton Grand Rio Hotel & Resort, which is located in an area called "Leblon". This magnificent area, with some of the best beaches in Rio, is the financial, gastronomic, lodging and entertainment center of the city. It was also home to most of the 2016 Summer Olympics and the 2016 Summer Paralympic Games. IMSC 2021 will cover all aspects of mass spectrometry, from fundamentals to instrumentation and applications, with the most recent findings and innovations and a very selected group of renowned speakers but with a great addition: our "Brazillian seasoning". The conference is organized with short courses, oral and poster sessions, workshops, awards, commercial exhibitions, as well as very exciting social programs (including an opening dinner, hospitalities suites, gala dinner, beach breaks and more), and companies user meetings. All major MS companies are supporting Rio2020 and will be in the exposition area presenting their latest products and innovations. We are working very hard to make Rio 2021 the largest and greatest ever IMSC and for it to be an exceptional occasion for you to enjoy science, to grow your network and make new friends and colleagues, to get new ideas for your research, for establishing new collaborations, starting new projects, and more; all in the unforgettably warm, beautiful and charming city of Rio de Janeiro! Please come, bring your students, invite friends and colleagues and contribute to make Rio 2021 a very successful, most amazing and unforgettable IMSC ever!   You are very welcome to RIO 2021!
