Atelier spectrometrie de masse spatiale


New deadline for registration : Monday 16th of April

In recent decades, the search for signs of extraterrestrial life has been a prime topic in scientific space exploration. This international conference, organized by LE STUDIUM Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies, aims at presenting the current state of knowledge acquired so far in the field of mass spectrometry by the activities of the world's scientific organizations and the most active space agencies pursuing this fundamental research field.

International experts will present the results on mass spectrometry of on-going and recently-completed in situ space missions (review talks on Cassini-Huygens, Rosetta, MSL-Curiosity, etc….) as well as the results of the return sample missions (Stardust, Hayabusa, etc..) and experimental laboratory and relevant modelling results.

Several space missions under development that address the research field will be presented by representatives of Space Agencies (NASA, ESA, JAXA, RSA, CNES,..)

A part of the workshop will be devoted to the presentations of new High Resolution Mass Spectrometry (HRMS) space instruments under development that are required to advance in our capability to address the ambitious science objectives laid down for the future missions under study.

Main topics

Mass Spectrometry, Space Missions, Spatial Instrumentation, Planetology, Exobiology, Habitability.
