The HTC-13 (January 29-31, 2014) programme features state-of-the-art lectures, tutorials, keynote and oral presentations encompassing fundamental chromatographic developments and application areas. An emphasis will be placed on oil and petrochemicals during sessions organized by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). Other areas of interest are computational chromatography and life sciences, new data-treatment methods, metabolomics, green hyphenated chromatography, natural products and hyphenated electro-driven systems. Instrument and equipment vendors will display their latest systems in the large exhibition space which is integrated with catering and presentations of shortlisted posters. Several awards will be presented including the Lifetime Achievement Award and the HTC-award for the most innovative paper or poster.
To encourage scientific exchange and friendship building, a welcome party, reception at the historical Town Hall, beer degustation evening, symposium dinner and a farewell cocktail reception will be held. Short courses are organized on January 28 on capillary electrophoresis, gas chromatography and high-performance liquid chromatography troubleshooting and advanced mass spectrometry.
The 3rd International Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques for Sample Preparation (HTSP-3) will be held alongside HTC-13 on January 28-29, 2014. The HTSP meeting is a strong programme in its own right, with a number of experts from around the world as invited speakers. Participants of HTSP will be able to catch a glimpse of some of the HTC-13 lectures and posters - and vice versa.
