The International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques (the HPLC Symposium) is one of the leading international conferences in separation science. Since the first symposium in 1973, held in Interlaken, Switzerland, the conference has focused on bringing the latest in separation science theory, technology and applications to an international audience.

The 35th International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC 2010) will take place in Boston in the Hynes Convention Center & Sheraton Boston Hotel, Boston, USA, from 19–24 June 2010 and will feature plenary and keynote lectures by separation scientists at the forefront of the field, short courses and workshops for learning about current techniques and technologies, as well as open discussion sessions for optimal interactions with fellow scientists. Among the many topics are sessions on separation fundamentals; high-temperature, high-speed and high-resolution separations; biomarker analysis and systems biology; microfluidic separation systems; developments in chromatographic column technology, including monolithic columns, small particle developments and core shell particles; and new instrumentation and novel detection schemes. In addition, applications in pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical analysis, environmental and food safety analysis, life sciences and polymers will be featured.

The conference provides a superb venue for learning the latest advances in liquid phase separations, interact with colleagues and renew old friendships. The wide-ranging vendor exhibition will include many companies showing their latest innovations in separation science and related areas.

Several components of the HPLC series of symposia make it a valuable resource for analytical chemists, biochemists, molecular biologists and those in the separation sciences seeking practical solutions. As well as the extensive technical programme of lecture and poster presentations addressing the diverse challenges faced by today's scientists, half- and full-day short courses are designed for scientists to gain insights into the latest advances in liquid phase separations and apply them to meet their specific needs. Another popular feature is the tutorial sessions, which are designed as educational lectures for students and others new to various separations disciplines, and to provide opportunities to broaden one's understanding of separation science.

The conference social programme is always popular, and will include opening and closing receptions with the conference dinner being held at the Museum of Fine Arts.
