From the 25th until the 28th of March 2019 we had another great fundamental mass spectrometry workshop, thanks to the 20 participants from all over the world. Topics ranged from "Building Kit-MS", "Life of a Molecule", "Sample to Signal" and "Praxis". We had a look inside some instruments to see what black-boxes are made of, talked about the fundamental designs of MS, how ions move in different parts of the MS, how we generate ions, some basics about plasmas, what might happen to ions on their way to the detector and how we eventually interpret the recorded mass spectrum. Lectures were pepared by Dr. Sonja Klee, Steffen Bräkling, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schrader, Alexander Haack, Dr. Walter Wißdorf, Prof. Dr. Thorsten Benter and Dr. Hendrik Kersten.

We thank all participants for their contribution to have made this a wonderful workshop with fruitful and lively discussions.
