INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR HDX-MS (IS-HDXMS)
A NON-PROFIT SOCIETY FOR ADVANCING THE USE OF HDX-MS
The overarching aim of the society is to support the International Conference for HDX-MS (IC-HDXMS) by providing a responsible legal entity for organizing the conference. As a framework for the IC-HDXMS, the organization seeks unite users of HDX-MS both from academia, industry and instrument vendor companies and support the HDX-MS scientific community in the sharing of both published and unpublished scientific research and best practices and engage and support community activities. We believe this to be critical to the continued development of the HDX-MS field. As a central principle, the society functions with full transparency for all members and through democratic principles based on common rules for non-profit societies.
For more information concerning the background of the IS-HDXMS, please see the published charter of the society: Society Charter

OTHER ACTIVITIES OF THE SOCIETY
2018:The society has supported the writing of community-based scientific paper entitled “Recommendations for performing, interpreting and reporting hydrogen deuterium exchange mass spectrometry (HDX-MS) experiments”. This paper provides a set of recommendations arising from community discussions emerging out of the IC-HDXMS, 2017. With contributions from most expert HDX-MS users across the community, the paper seeks to represent both a consensus viewpoint to help novices entering the HDX-MS field and an opportunity to stimulate further additions and refinements as the field advances.The manuscript has been submitted and is currently under review.
