Short Courses

 

The Short Course program provides delegates with the opportunity to update their knowledge in MS instrumentation and applications. There are two types of course:

  • Courses aimed at providing a broad overview of the current state of a given topic, thereby providing delegates not working directly in that field with a sound understanding of the current status (Course n°1).
  • Courses aimed at providing experienced practitioners with a more detailed understanding of up-to-date developments in a particular field (Courses n° 2 and 3).
