Announcement and Call for Papers

Seventh MaSC Workshop and Meeting
The Art Institute of Chicago, Northwestern University, the Field
    Museum, and Agilent Technologies
Chicago
17-22 May 2015

The 7th Workshop and Meeting of the Users' Group for Mass
Spectrometry and Chromatography (MaSC) will take place in Chicago
from Sunday, Friday, 17-22 May 2015.  The workshop, hosted jointly
by the Art Institute of Chicago, Northwestern University, the Field
Museum, and Agilent Technologies, will take place on 17-20 May,
2015.  The meeting will be held at the Art Institute of Chicago on
21-22 May, 2015.

Workshop
17-20 May 2015

    The theme of the workshop will be applications of inorganic and
    isotope ratio (IR) MS techniques for the study of art and
    archaeology.  It will provide a unique and valuable opportunity
    for participants to compare and assess the relative advantages
    of several MS techniques--ICP-MS, LA-ICP-MS and related IR-MS
    methods--for the characterisation of diverse materials including
    metals, glass, ceramics, minerals and pigments. IR-MS analysis
    of organic materials will not be the focus of the workshop but
    applications will be discussed.

    The Workshop will begin with a welcome/orientation session the
    afternoon of 17 May, 2014 at the Art Institute of Chicago.
    Practical workshop sessions, including lectures, demonstrations
    and hands-on training, will take place on 18-20 May at
    Northwestern University, the Field Museum and Agilent
    Technologies (the Northwestern and Agilent laboratories are a
    short drive from downtown Chicago; transportation between
    workshop locations will be arranged). Workshop instructors
    include Marc Walton and Monica Ganio (Northwestern), Laure
    Dussubieux and Mark Golitko (Field Museum), Patrick Degryse
    (Leuven University), Andrew Shortland (Cranfield University),
    and Jon Talbott (Agilent Technologies).

    The workshop will be limited to 15 participants.  Those wishing
    to attend are requested to submit a short paragraph describing
    their experience with mass spectrometry and how they would
    benefit from the workshop, which should be included in the
    registration form (see below) and sent to masc2015aic<-a t->artic< . >edu
    before 15 December 2014.

    The registration fee for the workshop is USD 350.

Meeting
21-22 May 2015

    The meeting will be held at the Art Institute of Chicago and
    will comprise discussions and presentations on novel
    applications of chromatographic and mass spectrometric
    techniques to the study of art and cultural artefacts. The
    meeting will include a session on inorganic and isotope ratio
    MS, but contributions on a broad range of topics are encouraged.
    We hope to create an informal atmosphere for the exchange of
    ideas, and so discussions of work in progress are welcomed.  A
    reception will be held at the Art Institute the evening of
    Thursday 21 May, 2015.

    Those interested in presenting a paper or poster should submit
    an abstract of up to 200 words to masc2015aic<-a t->artic< . >edu before
    15 December 2014.

    The registration fee for the meeting is USD 150 for those who
    register before 15 February 2015, or USD 200 after this
    deadline. The registration fee for students is USD 75.

Details of the workshop and meeting and a registration form can be
found on the MaSC website,

committee, c/o Ken Sutherland and Marc Walton,
