Details Events 71st ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics Pre-announcing an evening workshop on cultural heritage and mass spectrometry! Co-organized by Asher Newsome of the Smithsonian Museum Conservation Institute and Paul Haynes of Macquarie University. The annual ASMS meeting is the top technical conference on mass spectrometry and related topics, and though it has featured occasional oral sessions and workshops dedicated to cultural heritage applications (the most recent in 2020) we hope to build a regular presence there for cultural heritage research. Abstracts are due February 3, but workshops will not be announced until at least one month afterward. Our workshop is expected to host lightning talks from poster abstracts (particularly those of students and fellows) – meaning that those who are not accepted to one of the highly competitive oral slots at ASMS have another opportunity to give an oral presentation. We also need PIs from the field to sit on an expert panel. Our preliminary description of the workshop is below: The study of artworks, archaeological specimens, and other cultural heritage objects by mass spectrometry requires the adaptation of techniques developed for biomedicine, industrial and natural product research, forensics, etc. to diverse fields such as anthropology, archaeology, biology, natural history, art history, paleontology, and more. This workshop will feature lightning talks selected from ASMS poster abstracts – students and fellows are encouraged to volunteer in advance by contacting the organizers. Lightning talks will be followed by audience Q&A with a panel of academic, government, and private institution scientists to discuss areas of interest in the field. Science and science-adjacent topics may include: ethics and permissions involved in analyzing culturally sensitive samples; the risk of damage to objects as a result of analysis; sample-limited preparation and recovery approaches for rare and precious analytes; considerations for historical and contemporary sample contamination; the significance of preservation and prediction of material degradation; discerning the importance of chemicals identified from an analyte removed from context; employment, funding, and fellowship opportunities; and many more.
