The 12th International Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography and Hyphenated Chromatographic Analyzers (HTC-12) will take place at the Old Saint John Conference Centre in Bruges, Belgium, from the 1?3 February 2012.

The 12th International Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography and Hyphenated Chromatographic Analyzers (HTC-12) will take place at the Old Saint John Conference Centre in Bruges, Belgium, from the 1–3 February 2012.

The event will cover recent developments in chromatographic and mass spectrometric techniques from leading academic and industrial experts. Highlights will include overview lectures, key note lectures and oral presentations. The programme is further divided into application areas including food, human health and air and water analysis.

Key researchers who have been invited to highlight the quality of the programme include: James W. Jorgenson, Pat Sandra, Philip Marriott, Janusz Pawliszyn, Fred Regnier, Robert Synovec, Tuulia Hyötyläinen, Valérie Pichon, Sarah Rutan, Robert Shellie, Peter Tranchida, Oliver Trapp, Aviv Amirav, Josep Bayona, Frank David, Yvan Vander Heyden, Gert Desmet, Tadeusz Gorecki, Jurre Kamphorst, Robert Kennedy, Andre de Villiers, Emily Hilder, Sergey Krylov, Bruno Le Bizec, Abdul Malik, Tom Lynch and Hian Kee Lee.

The programme will also consist of a welcome party, reception at the Town Hall, beer tasting at a local brewery, symposium dinner and farewell cocktail.

In a nod to the strong links between hyphenated and automated separation systems and sample preparation techniques, the 2nd International Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques for Sample Preparation (HTSP-2) will run from 31 January–1 February 2012. Due to the overlapping schedule, scientists will be able to attend both meetings.

Sponsored by Elsevier Science, the HTC-award honours the most innovative paper or poster and will be presented at the event. The lifetime achievement award, sponsored by LCGC Europe, for outstanding achievements in the field of hyphenated techniques in chromatography and for distinguished service to the international chromatographic community will also be awarded. The scientific advisory committee will also make an award for the most innovative poster contribution.
