Australian and New Zealand Society

for Mass Spectrometry



The Australian and New Zealand Society for Mass Spectrometry (ANZSMS) will hold their 29th biennial Conference 9 July – 13 July 2023 at the University of Wollongong, NSW. 


The ANZSMS brings together a broad spectrum of scientists who work with mass spectrometry. The aim of the Society is to promote mass spectrometry by providing contact with local and international leaders in all areas, and provide a forum, through its meetings, for the presentation of research in mass spectrometry and its related disciplines. ANZSMS strongly supports early career researchers, gender diversity and equal opportunity in mass spectrometry.


ANZSMS29 is the premier conference for mass spectrometry in the Australia & New Zealand region and the latest in a series of conferences dating back to 1971.


Participants of ANZSMS29 will discuss contemporary aspects of mass spectrometry relating to chemistry, biology, earth science, archaeology, environmental science, forensics, physics and the latest advancements in mass spectrometry technology and techniques. The program will include orals, poster presentations and workshops from researchers in the area of mass spectrometry from all career stages (early career researchers to senior researchers) from both academia and industry.


After a few difficult years preventing the mass spectrometry community to come together in a face-to -face event, ANZSMS29 will return to its successful in-person only event and will showcase the best of Wollongong has to offer, from its beautiful campus where the conference be held, to nearby beaches and vibrant social scenes all combined with exceptional science.


Despite easing of restrictions and rules surrounding COVD-19, delegates can be reassured that adequate controls will be in place to reflect NSW public order guidelines at the time of the conference. Safety of all delegates is paramount while providing the best possible experience to all participants.


We hope to see you all at ANZSMS29 in Wollongong to support students, exchange ideas, present your latest findings, share exciting science, meet old friends and establish new connections.


This is an event not to be missed!
