Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to the 20th Annual International Conference of the Metabolomics Society, which will be held on June 16-20, 2024 in Osaka, Japan, at the ATC Hall. We invite you to join us at the breathtaking venue on the shores of Osaka Bay, where the heart of Japan's third-largest metropolis beats with excitement. Conveniently accessible from Kansai International Airport, Itami Airport, and just a swift 2.5-hour ride on the shinkansen (high-speed train) from the bustling capital city of Tokyo, Osaka is the gateway to a world where tradition seamlessly intertwines with the modern and referred to as the "Kitchen of Japan". As the melting point of Japan's rich heritage and industrial innovation, Osaka serves as a strategic hub connecting you to the timeless beauty of Kyoto, the cultural treasures of Nara, and the cosmopolitan allure of Kobe. Our chosen location is more than just a conference venue; it's a gateway to the soul of the Kansai region. 

The conference is the official annual meeting of the Metabolomics Society, and the largest metabolomics meeting worldwide. This is the third time that the conference will be held in Japan, following the 2005 and 2014 conference held in Tsuruoka. We look forward to welcoming the metabolomics community, building strong connections, and discussing world-class research in a relaxed collegial environment. Let us build on the momentum of the incredible Niagara Falls and Valencia conferences, that brought us back in-person, and make it the best meeting of 2024 together!

The conference will cover the major scientific themes of Technology Advances; Computational Metabolomics, Statistics, and Bioinformatics; Metabolomics in Health and Disease; and Metabolomics of Food, Plants , Environment and Microbes. The scientific program will include plenary and keynote talks, three parallel scientific sessions, interactive poster sessions, sponsor lunches, other networking events and a dedicated parallel session to promote metabolomics research in industry. To complement our exciting scientific program, the conference will offer a welcome reception, vibrant early-career events, a conference dinner and other engaging social activities.

On behalf of the members of the Scientific Organizing Committee and the Metabolomics Society Board we warmly invite you to Metabolomics 2024. We look forward to seeing you all in person in scenic Osaka, Japan.
