An open-source framework for mass spectrometry and TOPP – The OpenMS Proteomics Pipeline

6th OpenMS User Meeting – High-­performance software for high-­throughput proteomics and metabolomics

Dear friends of OpenMS,

we are happy to announce the 6th OpenMS User Meeting from September 3-5 at ETH Zürich.

During the meeting we will present the capabilities of OpenMS, discuss your needs, and future directions in mass spectrometry. This year’s meeting will include an optional OpenMS tutorial session on the first day with the general conference starting on Wednesday, September 4. Traditionally the schedule of our meetings is very flexible, allowing contributions from the participants and discussions.

You can bring your data, an OpenMS wish list and ideas for collaboration projects, and also give a talk about your project. This may include suggestions in areas where currently available software solutions were unsatisfactory. We would be very happy to welcome you in Zürich this year.

We will charge a non-refundable fee of 150 CHF for regular participants and 120 CHF for students. The fee covers coffee breaks and the social event. You will receive a bill to your name and e-mail address prior to the event.

The meeting will be held at ETH Zürich – Central Campus (note that ETH has two sites in Zürich).

Meeting room: ML F39 (in the ML-building)
Computer room: HG E26.1 (in the main building)

For an overview, please see:

Please keep in mind that the following schedule is preliminary and can easily be adjusted to the needs of the participants.
