Introducing the newest members of the JAAS Advisory Board

We are delighted to announce the appointment of four new members to theJAASAdvisory Board.All four of our new members have been recipients ofJAASEmerging Investigator Lectureships in recent years.The Lectureship aims to recognise and support an emerging scientist working in the area of atomic spectrometry in the early stages of their independent career.

Lara Lobo,Oviedo University,Spain
Lara Lobo was one of two winners of the 2015JAASEmerging Investigator Lectureship,launched to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the journal.Read Lara's recent critical review article on depth profile analysis with glow discharge spectrometryhere.

Gerardo Gamez,德州理工大学USA
Gerardo Gamez was one of two winners of the2015JAASEmerging Investigator Lectureship,launched to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the journal.Check out Garardo's article on compressed sensing spectral imaging for plasma optical emission spectroscopyhere.

Sohail Mushtaq,University of Bristol,UK
Sohail Mushtaq was the recipient of the2016JAASEmerging Investigator Lectureship.Read Sohail's article on "The production of doubly charged sample ions by "charge transfer and ionization" (CTI) in analytical GD-MS" featured in the journal's fifthYoung Analytical Scientistsissue.

Márcia Mesko,Federal University of Pelotas,Brazil
Márcia Foster Mesko was the recipient of the2018JAASEmerging Investigator Lectureship.Read her contribution to the recent Young Analytical Scientist Issue of the journal titled "Sample preparation of lipstick for further Cd and Pb determination by ICP-MS: is the use of complexing acids really necessary?"

JAASis guided by an international Editorial Board and Advisory Board – more information on our board members can be found on ourwebsite.We welcome the knowledge and expertise our four new Advisory Board members will bring to the journal and we very much look forward to working with them.Welcome to theJAASteam!

Will you be attending the 2018 Winter Conference on Plasma Spectro竞猜chemistry?

The2018 Winter Conference on Plasma Spectro竞猜chemistryis being held on January 8th – January 13th 2018 on Amelia Island,Florida,USA

The biennial Winter Conference on Plasma Spectro竞猜chemistry is sponsored by the ICP Information Newsletter,Inc.,a non-profit research organisation located in Hadley,Massachusetts and Lehigh Acres,Florida,and organised by Dr Ramon Barnes of the University Research Institute for Analytical 竞猜Chemistry.

The 2018 Winter Conference explores the most recent applications,developments,fundamentals,and research achieved with analytical plasma sources including glow discharges,inductively coupled plasmas,laser sources,and microwave discharges for elemental trace and ultra-trace,stable isotope,and elemental speciation analyses.

This conference is the 20th in a series of biennial meetings featuring developments in chemical analysis employing electrical discharge sources known as "plasma spectro竞猜chemistry".More than 500 international scientists are expected to attend with 300 invited and contributed presentations and 50 professional development short training courses being offered.The meeting will take place at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort on Amelia Island,Florida.

The pre-registration deadline isOctober 13,2017.The registration deadline isDecember 8,2017.More information can be foundonline.

Philippa Hughes,Executive Editor of JAASwill be in attendance andJAASwill also be sponsoring two poster prizes this year – good luck to all of the entrants!
