The 13th International Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography and Separation Technology (HTC-13) will be held at the Old Saint John Conference Center, Bruges, Belgium, from 29– 31 January 2014. The HTC symposium series is a premier forum for exchanging ideas on hyphenated and automated separation systems in a wide variety of applications.
The three-day event will feature recent findings from leading academic and industrial experts on chromatographic and mass spectrometric techniques covering fundamental aspects, instrumental developments, and state-of-the-art applications. A number of researchers key to this field have been invited including: Alois Jungbauer, Peter Schoenmakers, Hian-Kee Lee, Tadeusz Gorecki, Michal Holcapek, Ralf Zimmerman, Fred Regnier, Bruno Le Bizec, Gabriel Vivo-Truyols, Philip Marriott, Luigi Mondello, Janusz Pawliszyn, Valérie Pichon, Bart Devreese, Gert Desmet, Robert Shellie, Davy Guillarme, Hans-Gerd Janssen, Yvan Vander Heyden, Emily Hilder, Frank David, Koen Sandra, Hernan Cortes, and Tuulia Hyötyläinen.
The HTC-13 programme features state-of-the-art overview lectures, tutorials, keynote, and oral presentations encompassing both 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 cover the computational chromatography and life sciences, including pharmaceutical and bioanalytical applications, new data-treatment methods, metabolomics, green hyphenated chromatography, natural products, and hyphenated electro-driven systems.
The HTC symposium series has historically provided a bridge between academic research and industrial implementation. Instrument and equipment vendors will display their latest systems in the large exhibition space which is integrated with catering and presentations of the shortlisted posters.
Several awards will be presented during the course of these events including the Lifetime Achievement Award, sponsored by LCGC Europe, which will honour a scientist who has been distinguished by outstanding achievements in the field of hyphenated techniques in chromatography and for distinguished service to the international chromatographic community, and the HTC-Award sponsored by Elsevier Science for the most innovative paper or poster. The most innovative poster contribution will also be awarded a specific poster award by the scientific advisory committee.
To encourage scientific exchange and friendship building, the scientific programme will be topped off by a rich social programme consisting of a welcome party, reception at the historical Town Hall, beer degustation evening, symposium dinner, and a farewell cocktail reception.
Short courses will be organised on Tuesday 28th January on capillary electrophoresis, gas chromatography and high performance liquid chromatography troubleshooting and advanced mass spectrometry. HTC-13 is also organizing a job market. Scientists seeking a job that involves hyphenated systems (participants and non-participants of the meeting) will be given facilities to meet potential employers.
The 3rd International Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques for Sample Preparation (HTSP-3) will be held alongside HTC-13 on 28–29 January 2013. 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.
