6th International Symposium on the Separation and Characterization of Natural and Synthetic Macromolecules (SCM-6)

The 6th International Symposium on the Separation and Characterization of Natural and Synthetic Macromolecules (SCM-6) will take place on 6–8 February 2013 in Dresden, Germany. SCM-6 will bring together a variety of scientists who share an interest in the separation and characterization of large molecules. The target audience includes specialists from analytical chemistry, polymer science, and life-science communities. SCM-6 creates a platform for scientists from diverging backgrounds and with different current perspectives to interact, discuss subjects of mutual interest, and to discover new synergies.

The conference will take place in the Congress Centre Dresden close to the historical heart of the city. An exhibition of instruments and consumables will take place in the exhibition hall with a spectacular city view. The exposition will be actively integrated with the poster sessions and social programme, catering and receptions.

The programme will feature a limited number of invited plenary, state-of-the-art and keynote lectures on a variety of recent topics, challenges and developments in the field. Tutorials are intended to bring non-specialists up-to-date on important topics in the field of polymer separation and characterization.

The scientific programme will feature a number of the very best speakers in the field. The organizers also aim to provide talented young researchers with the opportunity to present their work. During SCM-6, the scientific advisory committee will select the most innovative contribution in the field of separation and characterization of natural and synthetic macromolecules. The award will be presented during the closing session on the last symposium day.

Participants are invited to contribute to the programme by submitted oral and poster presentations. Abstracts for contributions can be submitted by via the webpage www.scm-6.de. The online registration is open. Two short courses with renowned experts in the field will be held before the conference:

Short course 1: Monday 4 February 2013: Field-Flow Fractionation of Natural Polymers –Kim Williams (USA) and Lars Nilsson (Sweden).

Short course 2: Tuesday 5 February 2013: Liquid Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry – Jana Falkenhagen (Germany) and Christopher Barner-Kowollik (Germany).

For centuries Dresden has been praised as one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. Visitors to Dresden are impressed by the baroque architecture, the harmony between the architecture and the river, and by the picturesque surroundings. The work of inspired master builders, sculptors and architects endowed the city with edifices of rare splendour. There is also great traditions in the fields of music, theatre, arts and sciences create a unique atmosphere.
