Get the Basics
Location: Paracelsus Hall
This series of Primers on emerging fields within Clinical Mass Spec is free to attend for ALL registrants of the MSACL Congress or Short Courses, including Partial Pass holders.

Take aways for each session include:
1. Be able to define what the field is, why it matters, and why you personally should care. What is the clinical relevance?
2. Understand what role mass spectrometry plays in this field. Where does mass spec fit in to the big picture of the field?
3. Define any terminology that is specific to this field.
4. Describe how it works, what are the methods and workflows used when studying this field and/or how is it implemented in clinical labs.
5. Identify any challenges to implementation/adoption, where do the opportunities lie?

09:00 - 09:40 Glycomics with Manfred Wuhrer
09:50 - 10:30 Mass Spec Imaging with Tiffany Porta
10:40 - 11:20 Lipidomics with Anne Bendt
11:30 - 12:10 Data Science with Randy Julian
12:20 - 13:00 Breath Analysis with Ilaria Belluomo
Lunch on Own
Location: Your Choice
Some nearby (within one block) recommendations include:
1. The Heart of Joy (Vegetarian and Vegan)
2. my Indigo Kongresshaus (Asian Fusion, great choice if short on time, pre-packaged take-away options available, pleasant interior)
3. Cafe Fingerlos (Cafe with the best breakfast in town)
4. IMLAUER Sky (Rooftop patio with a view)
5. Cafe Wernbacher (Austrian, great interior for a rainy day with much of the original 1950s decor, open 9am-midnight daily with Sunday Brunch buffet until 2pm)
6. Braurestaurant IMLAUER (Austrian, traditional interior plus a beer garden, good for groups)

A little further afield:
1. Balkan Grill Walter (Take-away street food at its best in the Old Town. Grab a FroYo at Fabi's after.)
2. Stieglkeller (Lovely historical building in Old Town, it's Beer Garden has a fantastic view over the town. Large beer selection.)

Discussion Group: Study Design and Logistics for Metabolomics Studies
Location: Paracelsus Hall
Study design is a very critical step in metabolomic experiment. It has to ensure that phenotype resolution, metabolite coverage, quality-driving resources and logistic processes are considered. During the session we will interactively discuss steps like type of the study, consideration of confounders, power calculation, pre-analytical requirements, sample storage, randomization, metabolite analytics to be chosen and replication considerations. Chair - Jerzy Adamski

State of the Science Address
Location: Mozart 1-5
Presented by MSACL EU Scientific Committee Topic Leads, this address will provide an overview of the applications and technologies currently being used in Clinical Labs, and a clear view of the development pipeline. It will highlight applications expected to be available in the near-future, as well as emerging applications, and key contributors. Relevant talks, posters, and people present at the congress will be identified, enabling you to optimize your learning path and more effectively target potential network connections. Whether you are new to Clinical Mass Spectrometry, or a seasoned veteran, the State of the Science address should be on your agenda.
