Okinawa Analytical Instrument Network Meeting 2019

General Information

Meeting Name:   Okinawa Analytical Instrument Network Meeting 2019

Date:                   November 22nd, 2019

Organizer:           Instrumental Analysis Section, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology

Location:             Room B250, Tancha 1919-1 Onna-son Kunigami-gun Okinawa, Japan 904-0495

Okinawa is notably unique place compare to other part of Japan and this is not only the location of nature rich tropic islands away from center of Japan.  If we think center of East Asia, Okinawa can be the key of the “network” for these cities and contribute the sustainable development for all countries. Nowadays, the science is the large investment for the sustainable development and the “high quality research instrument” is one of the major parts of it.  The purpose of this meeting is, as the member of scientist of these area, establishment of the “network” of “high quality research instrument” and contribution to the advance science and technology in Okinawa and the rest of the world.  Annual meeting of “Okinawa Analytical Instrument Network Meeting” is started from last year to support this idea. 

This year, we target the Mass Spectrometry (MS) with OMICS application for this meeting. MS is widely installed and used in locally for the routine use but MS for OMICS research needs high-end instrument and extensive skill of specialist.  Four researchers from Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, and U.S.A. are invited to give the lecturer using “state-of-the-art instrument” MS and discuss about the future of research include the collaboration/network of MS for OMICS.
