The 33rd International Symposium on Chromatography (ISC 2022) will be held from 18–22 September 2022 in Budapest. Read on to find out what attendees can look forward to.

The 33rd International Symposium on Chromatography (ISC 2022) will be held from 18–22 September 2022 in Budapest, Hungary. The International Symposium on Chromatography (ISC) represents the oldest conference series on separation science. ISC symposia have been organized since 1956 in each even year. ISC is one of the premier meetings series of chromatography and separation science and covers a broad range of techniques and applications.

ISC 2022 is going to be the first significant live event in Europe since 2019 and will cover all fields of chromatography and separation science.

The major focus of the symposium will be on the impact of chromatography and separation science to meet the needs of the pharmaceutical, environmental, food, and health industry, as well as science and medicine. The symposium programme will reflect these themes and highlight new challenges and emerging opportunities for the science and marketing of separation and detection systems and methods.

As an integral part of the scientific programme of lectures and poster sessions, an international exhibition and vendor seminars on instrumentation and services for chromatography, separation science, and mass spectrometry will be organized. ISC 2022 will provide the perfect forum for attendees from academia, industry, and government research institutions to meet for scientific exchange and networking.

The symposium programme reflects all aspects of separation science and aims to highlight new challenges and emerging opportunities in the field. The scientific programme is set to be wide ranging and diverse with topics including: new technologies, instrumentations, and separation media for gas chromatography (GC), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC), and electrodriven separations; mass spectrometry hyphenation and applications; pharmaceuticals; biopharmaceutical and biologics; foods, natural products, health, security; chemometrics, quality by design, data processing; all modes of chromatography and electrodriven separation techniques; miniaturized and lab-on-chip systems; clinical, biomedical, and toxicological analysis and diagnosis; process chromatography and process analytical technology; multidimensional and hyphenated techniques; sample handling and trace analysis; ‘omics; complementary and emerging techniques; 3D-printing of separation systems.

During the symposium, prominent separation scientists will be honoured. The Halász Medal Award, the Csaba Horváth Memorial Award, the Ervin sz. Kováts Award for Young Scientists of the Hungarian Society for Separation Sciences, and the Martin and Jubilee Medals of the Chromatographic Society will be presented during the ISC 2022 Symposium. The Joseph Huber Name Lecture Award of the Austrian Society of Analytical Chemistry will also be presented at the award ceremony.

The social programme of the ISC 2022 Budapest Symposium will include opening and closing receptions, symposium dinner, and various optional activities.

Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is an economic, financial, and cultural centre with two million inhabitants. The city, which is beautifully situated on botxh sides of the Danube River, has a history dating back over 2000 years. The venue—Budapest Congress Centre—is equipped with a complete range of conference facilities and is easily reached by public transport. It is situated in a pleasant and peaceful chestnut park and directly connected to Novotel Budapest City. This is a place where meetings can be organized in a dynamic and modern environment. The centre is fully equipped with the latest audio‑visual, stage-, light-, and air‑conditioning technologies.
