The Monona Terrace, Madison, WisconsinThe symposium will be held at the Monona Terrace Convention Center designed by the Wisconsin native and internationally renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright on Madison’s Lake Monona (a venue that must be experienced by everyone at least once).

Monona Terrace is a convention center like no other, rising from the blue expanse of Lake Monona, only two blocks from the State Capitol. Monona Terrace features over 250,000 sq. ft. of multi-level, flexible space.

The Monona Terrace Convention Center offers a unique and inspiring architectural backdrop for formal and informal scientific interactions. For more information, please visit The Monona Terrace web site.

This year's exciting program features 12 invited oral presentations from nationally recognized leaders in modern mass spectrometry/proteomics with an emphasis on how these technologies will impact human health.

Speakers will address a range of proteomics applications in basic and clinical biomedical research, instrumentation/technique development and potential applications in clinical practice. All talks will be plenary (no parallel sessions), and all attendees are invited to present their recent work in scientific poster sessions.

Poster and exhibitor sessions will occur between and following oral sessions. We anticipate participation of 150-200 conferees with up to 50 posters from academia, clinics and industry with many opportunities for discussion and intermingling.
