The 32nd International Symposium on Capillary Chromatography and the 5th GC×GC Symposium will be held at the Palazzo dei Congressi, Riva del Garda, Italy, in May.

The International Symposium on Capillary Chromatography (ISCC) has, over the years, established its reputation as a leading forum on capillary chromatography and microcolumn separation techniques. Since the first meeting in Hindelang in 1975, important developments in these fields have been presented first in this symposium series.

The 32nd International Symposium takes place from 27–30 May, 2008 and will be the Silver Jubilee meeting as the first meeting held in Riva was in 1983. This year around 800 participants are expected to attend the presentation of the Marcel Golay Award. The lecture programme will consist of review papers by leading scientists covering the latest developments, keynote lecturers by young scientists, contributed papers presented in the "Riva" poster sessions as well as the discussion sessions. Workshop seminars of instrument manufacturers and an extensive exhibition of instrumentation, accessories and supplies will run in parallel to the scientific programme. The technical programme will cover capillary gas chromatography, micro liquid chromatography, electromigration methods, microfabricated analytical systems and lab-on-a-chip; column technology, coupled and multidimensional techniques; comprehensive techniques, sampling systems, sample preparation, trace analysis and automation within the application fields of environmental analysis; energy, petroleum and industrial analysis; biomedical and pharmaceutical analysis and analysis of natural products, food, flavours and fragrances.

Considering the present interest in comprehensive techniques, the fifth GC×GC Symposium will be organized during the same period to allow scientists to attend both meetings. The fifth GC×GC Symposium starts on Sunday, 25 May with a course covering the fundamental and practical aspects of comprehensive techniques and plenary sessions on Monday, 26 May.

To encourage scientific exchange and friendship building, the scientific programmes will be spiced with the well-known Riva social programme. This includes the welcome reception, cocktail party, classical concert, wine and cheese evening; disco night and then farewell cocktails. The "Riva experience" is one to be savoured and not missed.
