January 26 – January 29, 2024


The community can now look back on more than 25 years of PTR-MS and look forward to the rapid development of the technology and areas of application. We are also looking forward to finally bringing the community together again in the home of PTR-MS after the years of the Covid pandemic. And that's why we would like to invite you to be part of the 9th International PTR-MS Conference 2024.

This time the conference will take place from January 26th to 29th, 2024 in the conference center of the idyllic village of Seefeld in Tirol (~25 km from Innsbruck). There will again be an interesting, varied program consisting of oral and poster presentations, which will cover all areas of application of the technology.
