On behalf of the Australian and New Zealand Society for Mass Spectrometry (ANZSMS), the International Mass Spectrometry Foundation (IMSF) and its affiliates, we look forward to welcoming you to the 25th International Mass Spectrometry Conference (IMSC) to be held August 17-23, 2024 in Melbourne, Australia.

Delegates and their families will have ample opportunity before, during or after the Conference to explore and experience Melbourne and beyond, including our spectacular arts scene, world-class sporting calendar, unique local wildlife, Indigenous Australian experiences, and renowned culinary delights. For many delegates, this will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit Melbourne to attend the conference, and then to stay for some additional time to experience all that Australia and New Zealand have to offer.

ANZSMS has an established policy to provide equal access to resources and opportunity across all aspects of our society (, and is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of respect, diversity, equity and inclusion, including for gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, race, religion, political affiliation, national origin, age, and socio-economic status.

Celebration thrives here

Melbourne is famous for its hidden laneways, multicultural cuisines and amazing coffee. We propose using these elements to create a Festival style event for IMSC 2024 attendees that will capture the unique flavours of Melbourne and provide a truly memorable evening on the banks of our Yarra River.

The Festival will be an indoor/outdoor style event, with informal seating areas and a variety of themed food stations to suit all tastes complemented by roving entertainment featuring an Australian theme.

Rather than a traditional formal, seated dinner we believe creating a celebration of Australian culture will be more appealing to delegates and will also enable them to easily chat and network with their colleagues from around the globe.

The Festival will be held in the South Wharf Precinct which is located on the doorstep of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre so additional costs for buses and transportation will not be incurred.
