37th Annual Trent Conference on Mass Spectrometry

The Canadian Society for Mass Spectrometry proudly presents the 37th Annual Trent Conference on Mass Spectrometry - For Graduate and Undergraduate Student Researchers. For 37 years the “Trent Conferences” have been taking place in Ontario (and once in Quebec!), challenging and training graduate and undergraduate students across mass spectrometry disciplines.  The conference is focused on student presentations and some supervisor-delivered tutorials. 

In 2021 we are continuing in online mode.  The benefit of this model is that we can expand our participation beyond the Southern Ontario/Western Quebec mass spectrometry community.  It also means participation is free!

The conference will be held starting Monday, August 9 and run through the 11th, depending on how many students wish to participate. To register, just visit the link below and complete the surveymonkey.  Participants will be asked if they simply wish to ‘watch and learn’, or present either a 5 min “just the highlights” or 15 min “give me the details” oral presentation.  Titles, authors, affiliations and abstract are requested in the same document.

Date:  Aug 9-11, 2021
Location: Zoom
Registration (including abstract submission):
Registration and abstract submission deadline: July 23, 2021
Cost: $0


Tutorial talks: 
Paul Mayer – What goes into making a mass spectrum?
Maxim Berezovski - Combining Capillary Electrophoresis with Mass Spectrometry to Study Biomolecular Interactions
Lars Konermann - Protein ESI: From solution into the gas phase


Award Lectures:
Scott Hopkins, University of Waterloo – CSMS Young Investigator Award for 2020
Mona Hamada, University of Saskatchewan – CSMS Best Thesis Award for 2020


Special Workshop:
Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry and Essential Oil Identification
Dr. Sharon Curtis, JLH Mass Spectrometry Core Facility, University of Ottawa
This virtual workshop will take place in the afternoon of Monday, Aug 9, with Dr. Curtis leading participants through a tour of the components and operation of GC-MS.  Students will then receive a data set that requires interpreting.  Dr. Curtis will be available the two subsequent afternoons for one-on-one discussion.  Participants successfully completing their project will receive a certificate.
To register for this workshop (again, free), email Dr. Curtis directly at
Student Presentation Awards: 
There will be awards for the best student oral presentations.
The top two talks will receive $100 each from Canadian Science Publishing, publishers of the Canadian Journal for Chemistry. 
Waters is providing a third award of $100 for the next best presentation.
The CSMS will provide 12 awards of $50 for quality presentations.
