3rd European GC×GC Symposium

The 3rd European GC×GC Symposium will take place on 17–18 September 2013 at Parc Valrose, University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, Nice, France. The symposium will explore comprehensive chromatography (GC×GC) and mass spectrometry (MS).

The programme is based on presentations from leading industry and academic experts. This forum provides the ideal opportunity for sharing their expertise and knowledge along with their application of GC×GC to solve today's challenging applications. The two-day scientific programme includes the following themed sessions:

  • Basic GC×GC techniques;

  • Metabolomic and systems biology;

  • Food and flavour;

  • Environmental and chemical analysis

  • Fragrance and aroma research;

  • Advanced GC×GC and technical developments

The 3rd European GC×GC Symposium is dedicated to continuing the style and welcoming atmosphere of previous meetings. A detailed scientific programme along with speaker biographies and abstracts are all available on-line (www.events-GC×GC.eu ).
