Event news summary

29th International Symposium on Chromatography (ISC)

The 29th International Symposium on Chromatography (ISC) will take place on 9–13 September 2012 in the picturesque gothic city of Torun, Poland.

This is the first time that the Steering Committee of the International Symposium on Chromatography has awarded the organisation of the International Symposium on Chromatography (ISC) to the Polish Chemical Society and Commission for Chromatographic Analysis (PAS).

Poland is historically significant for separation science because the origins of chromatography began in Warsaw with M.S. Tswett and the foundations of the chromatographic process were laid by W. Nernst, who was born in Wabrzezno near Torun. The theme of this year's event is Chromatography & Separation Science: Past, Present and Future, and will be devoted entirely to the role and applications of modern separation techniques in all application areas. Symposium topics will cover both theoretical and practical lectures including;

  • Fundamentals of separation science

  • GC, SFC

  • TLC, (U)HPLC

  • Electromigration techniques

  • Miniaturization and chip technologies

  • Instrument hyphenation

  • Sample preparation

  • Method validation

  • Modelling and simulation.

The organizers, together with the scientific committee, have planned a programme to inform and inspire, and to provide opportunities for increased collaboration between separation scientists. The programme includes plenary lectures, section lectures, oral and poster presentations, vendor seminars, workshops (concerning sample preparation, food quality control, miniaturization) and exhibitions. Invited to participate in the symposium are renowned, worldclass specialists in chromatography. Young scientists are encouraged to attend the symposium and present the results of their research. As well as the scientific programme there are many interesting social events that allow delegates to explore the city and region.

Torun is well positioned and accessible to Central Europe. It is a city with a long-lasting tradition of political and scientific dialogue and cooperation, and is notable for being the home of the famous astronomer, Nicolaus Copernicus. Torun is also important for being the venue of two historical peace treaties in 1411 and 1466.

The symposium is supported by the European Society for Separation Science (EuSSS), the Central European Group for Separation Science and the Nordic Separation Science Society.
