The jubilee 20th International Symposium on Separation Sciences (ISSS 2014), chaired by Aleš Horna and Pavel Jandera, will take place at the Hotel DAP in Prague, Czech Republic, from 30 August to 2 September 2014. The symposium will bring together specialists from all areas of separation science from around the world to partake in the exchange of new ideas from both academia and industry.

The goal of the 20th ISSS symposium is to encourage the sharing of information in the area of separation sciences, promote exchange of new ideas on the academic and the industry level, and provide a new forum for collaboration and networking. The ISSS symposia series traditionally offers an international forum for specialists of all types of separation techniques. Attending ISSS will give attendees the opportunity to be updated on the new advances in instrumentation and methodologies of all types of separation techniques.

The scientific programme will include plenary and keynote lectures presented by leading scientists, contributed oral presentations, and poster sessions. The featured topics include: Miniaturized capillary and chip-based fluidic separation media; hyphenated and multi-dimensional techniques; method development; chemometric approaches; quality assessment; ultra-fast high-flow and high-temperature gas and liquid chromatography; and sample pre-treatment and preparation. In addition, advances in column technology will be addressed focusing on micro- and nano-particle, core–shell, and monolithic technologies. Other topics that will be covered range from new stationary phase chemistries for high hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) and chiral separations, to molecularly-imprinted media and stationary phases providing a dual retention mechanism, with an emphasis on novel application methods, particularly in food, clinical, and environmental analysis. Special emphasis will be put on novel application methods, especially in food, biomedical, and environmental analysis.

Four plenary lectures will be presented by the following leading scientists: Wolfgang Lindner (Enantioselective separations); Pat Sandra (Advances in GC–MS and LC–MS in disease metabolomics); Peter Schoenmakers (Two-dimensional liquid chromatography); and František Švec (Monolithic columns including metal nanoparticles).

The following eminent scientists have been confirmed as presenters at the symposium: D. Berek; T. Bolanca; B. Buszewski; V. Coman; D. Corradini; F. Foret; M. Gertsiuk; M. Gilar; M. Holčapek; V. Kašicka; I. Klebovich; J. Lehotay; W. Lindner; M. Macka; L. Mondello; Mx. Novotný; P. Sandra; P. Schoenmakers; F. Švec; and I. Vovk.

There will be a young scientists' oral session, giving opportunity to PhD students and young research associates to present their latest results. Most contributions will be presented in poster sessions, which will be the essential part of the meeting. A competition for the best poster will be organized.

The 20th ISSS symposium will be a unique opportunity for exhibitors to display their products and services to the participants. Last but not least, a rich social programme will be organized, including a symposium dinner, boat trip, and a sight-seeing walk around Prague. Registration is open at the symposium webpage. The deadline for abstract submission for oral or poster contributions is 30 April 2014 (for abstracts to be included in the symposium book); the early registration deadline is 31 May 2014.
