About the Society
Hong Kong Society of Mass Spectrometry (HKSMS) was established in 1998.
The Society aims to serve as a forum for exchange of views about mass
spectrometry, and to promote the understanding of mass spectrometry among
professionals and the general public. By arranging seminars and meetings
on mass spectrometry, the Society hopes not only to foster this rapidly
expanding field of science within Hong Kong, but also to serve as a link
to societies in other countries and the Mainland which share the same
HKSMS is a non-profit making Society run by the Society's
Council on a voluntary basis. The Council consists of the President, the
Vice-President, the Honorary Secretary, the Treasurer, and four other
ordinary members elected at the Annual General Meeting. In addition, a
maximum of two student members may be co-opted into the Council.
Existing Society members comprise academics or professionals
from governmental institutions, universities and industry (full members),
full-time students in academic institutions (student members), corporate
members and honorary members.
Activities of the Society
The Council organises events such as scientific meetings, seminars and
short courses that are relevant to mass spectrometry for Society members,
and other activities at the initiation or request by the members. Joint
events may be organised with universities and relevant corporations. Mass
spectrometrists of international standing will also be invited to give
presentations in Hong Kong. Some of these activities are opened to non-members
but may be at an extra charge. The Annual General Meeting is held in June
each year, which is usually preceded by an afternoon of scientific seminars.
Every year the society supports members to attend overseas conferences.
