Kimberly, Mariya and I attended SIMS Europe 2023 organized at the University of Nottingham in the UK. It was a great conference - even if you didn't know about the short amount of time to organize it - and historic for being the first one not held in Münster, Germany. Kudos to the entire local organizing committee!
I gave an invited talk, presenting various examples of the ongoing research using ToF-SIMS imaging in the group. I also taught the short course on 'SIMS for Biological Analysis' and chaired Session 5-2: Bio 2. Kimberly and Mariya presented their posters during the second poster session.
It was wonderful seeing all the great research that is going on in the SIMS community right now. Plus, it was nice catching up with former colleagues and friends; not only during the conference itself, but also during the social event on Sunday evening and the conference barbecue on Monday. We also had a lovely PHI users' dinner at Browns on Tuesday thanks to Greg Fisher.
It was great being back at my old stomping ground and now we're looking forward to seeing everyone again in La Rochelle for SIMS-24!
