The Joint 11th Asia Oceania Human Proteome Organization (AOHUPO) and 7th Asia Oceania Agricultural Proteomics Organization (AOAPO) Congress
We are pleased to announce that, the Joint 11th Asia Oceania Human Proteome Organization (AOHUPO) and 7th Asia Oceania Agricultural Proteomics Organization (AOAPO) Congress will be held in Singapore from 8th-10th of May 2023, in conjunction with the annual conference of Singapore Society for Mass Spectrometry (SSMS). This event is co-organized by SSMS and the Malaysian Proteomics Society (MAPS). The congress will be held at MAX Atria @ Singapore EXPO.
Established in 2001, AOHUPO aims to promote and coordinate the activities of the regional proteomics community. Currently it has active council members from seventeen AO member countries, and it has organized biennial conferences since 2002. However, the 10th AOHUPO congress that was scheduled to be held in Busan, Korea in 2020 was postponed to 2021 with a hybrid format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, AOAPO was established in 2010 to further the cooperation on agricultural proteomics in the AO region, and it covers diverse areas including the proteomics of crops, food, insects, microbes, and animals. SSMS was initially tasked to organize the 7th AOAPO conference in Singapore in 2020, but it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In late 2021, MAPS was approached by SSMS to explore the possibility of co-hosting the 11th AOHUPO congress. After several rounds of discussion, it was decided to co-organize the joint AOHUPO-AOAPO congress in Singapore by both societies in May 2023.
We are planning for a 3-day face-to-face joint congress that will feature distinguished invited speakers in 5 plenary sessions and 27 concurrent sessions, covering broad topics of proteomics and mass spectrometry technologies and applications in health/biomedical research, agriculture/aquaculture, food and environmental sciences. Congress participants will have the opportunity to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations. In addition, we have also planned to hold a Young Scientist Forum (YSF) for young scientists as a preconference activity. Lastly, some of our corporate sponsors will be given the opportunity to conduct daily lunch time workshops and to present their products and solutions at exhibition booths.
It is a huge relief that COVID-19 is largely under control globally, and most countries have re-opened their borders. Thus, this joint congress will be a great opportunity for regional proteomics and mass spectrometry scientists to meet in Singapore to exchange ideas and to present their latest findings. In addition, it is also an opportune time for the research community to get reconnected, and to renew friendships after the long pandemic period.
We look forward to seeing you in the beautiful metropolitan Singapore in May 2023! WELCOME!

MAPS Travel Award 2018
Testimonial from the winner of MAPS travel Award 2018 Ms Rishiesvari Ravee (MSc candidate @ UKM) with MYR2,000 to attend the 7th National Plant Protein Research Conference & 2018 Meeting of Agricultural Proteomics in Jinan, China, November 2-5, 2018:
Date: 12 /11/2018
The 7th national plant protein research conference that I have attended provided fruitful topics on plant protein research with the latest application of omics technology. Since my research is about proteomic analysis of a secreted plant protein and this conference provided a great opportunity for practise constructive dialogue with researcher in the field.
This conference is an ideal platform to present my work because it is an international forum consists of speakers, researchers, technologist and industry representatives who are experts in plant protein. Besides, this forum represent unique forum for both scientific cooperation and cultural exchanges. It was organized by Botanical Society of China and University of Jinan. In addition, it covered various aspects of plant protein ranging from structure and function of proteins, agricultural proteomics, novel techniques for PTMs and new insights into multi-omics integration, plant development, photosynthesis, and circadian clock.
The abstract that I have submitted was accepted for poster presentation. The abstract “Time course analysis of protein compositional changes in pitcher fluid of Nepenthes ampullaria” was printed in the conference book. I was given an hour for my poster presentation on Monday 5th November 2018 meanwhile I had opportunity to attend other conference events such as plenary lectures and oral presentations on 3rd and 4th November.
Even though majority of the lectures and presentations were conducted in Mandarin, I managed to understand their research scope and findings based on the printed abstracts. Moreover, most of the presentation slides were in English and Mandarin which was helpful for me to get some new ideas regarding proteomics. It provided me a valuable learning experience. For instance, I have a remarkable opportunity to gather together, interact and exchange their findings and opinions during conference sessions, tea breaks, and conference dinner. Consequently, I have known a number of academics and professionals from different countries who have similar research interests such as multi-omics integration and functional proteomics.
Finally, I would like to thank Malaysian Agricultural Proteomics Society for giving me the opportunity to attend the conference via their travel grant which covered the main part of my expenses. This conference was very interesting and enriched my experience with more information, knowledge, and confidence.
