Travel Awards

With the continual support from corporate and individual sponsors, the International Society for Ion Mobility Spectrometry (ISIMS) is pleased to offer travel awards to subsidize travel costs in attending the International Conference on Ion Mobility Spectrometry. There will be a number of travel awards conferred each year, subject to funding availability.


This is a student-led initiative. In addition to the generous contribution from our sponsors, we sincerely thank the ISIMS students for providing valuable comments and suggestions, especially Chris Prüfert (University of Potsdam, Germany) and Alexander Bohnhorst (Leibniz University Hannover, Germany).
