The 40th International Symposium on Capillary Chromatography (ISCC) and 13th GC×GC Symposium

 

  The

40th International Symposium on Capillary Chromatography (ISCC)

and the

13th GC×GC Symposium

will once again be held in

Riva del Garda, Italy

, from

29 May

to

3 June 2016

. The meeting will focus on recent advances in the fields of pressure and electrodriven microcolumn separations, and comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography (2D GC). Particular emphasis will be placed on combining capillary chromatography with various forms of mass spectrometry (MS) - from unit-mass to high‑resolution and from single to hybrid analyzers.    The

ISCC/GC×GC

scientific programme will be a rich one, characterized by contributions from leading scientists reporting on the latest most exciting developments; keynote lectures from promising young researchers; active poster sessions; discussion sessions; workshop seminars presenting the most recent novelties in scientific instrumentation; and a world-class GC×GC course. Researchers in all areas relevant to the subjects of the symposia are invited to submit abstracts. As is traditional for the Riva meetings, the majority of presentations will be in a poster format and the Scientific Committee will select contributions for oral presentations.   As always, many awards will be presented at both the ISCC and GC×GC events, recognizing excellence in both established and young scientists, in oral and poster presentations. Exhibitors and sponsors remain a fundamental part of the meeting and the organisers nvite companies to participate by reserving booth space and becoming a sponsor.   Last but not least, the traditional “Riva” social programme will return with one or two events each day: Cocktails, welcome reception, concert, wine and cheese evening, and of course, the disco night!

Young Scientists and Researchers Environmental and Food Analysis SIG Meeting

  The

Young Scientists and Researchers Environmental and Food Analysis SIG Meeting

will be held on the

28 October 2015

at

The Auditorium, BAT Research & Development, Southampton, UK

.   The aim of this one-day meeting is to highlight and focus on the research and innovation of young graduate scientists and researchers in areas relating to the applications of chromatography–mass spectrometry to environmental and food matrix analysis.   The meeting is open to all organizations and institutions with interests in environmental and food mass spectrometry using chromatography and mass spectrometry across the spectrum of instrumentation. Please note that although the focus is on the activities of young scientists, presentation submissions are welcome from experienced scientists working in similar areas, so that there is a blend of the established with the new. It is hoped that invited keynote speakers to the sessions will be representative of both groups. Confirmed Postgraduate and Young Scientist Speakers include: Ms Sally Gamble, Department of Security and Crime Science, University College London, UK; Dr Benjamin Savareear, University of Liege, Belgium; Aneela Arshad, Polymer Science, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK; Kate Sidwick, Keele University, UK; Russel Cole, University of Portsmouth, UK; and Glenn Castle, University of Portsmouth, UK. The organizers would appreciate your support and attendance.   Website:
