The International Society for Ion Mobility Spectrometry (ISIMS) is founded as a Scholarly Society in 1996. The ISIMS is a registered non-profit corporation in the New Mexico, US.
The Society consists of members from academia, government and industry, who work in ion mobility spectrometry and related fields. The ISIMS hosts an annual conference. Unlike most professional meetings, the annual conference maintains a relaxed tone, with an intention for IMSers to share details of studies without pressures sometimes present in large meetings of national or international conferences. Incomplete and progressive studies are encouraged.
