Good morning, and welcome to Day 2 of LCGC's daily conference report from HPLC 2008. With the exhibits opening today, we hope you will stop by and see us at Booth #115. We have an assortment of complimentary issues available, including our most recent HPLC-themed supplement, "Current Trends in LC Column Technology," containing the latest research from the most prominent thought leaders in the industry. You’ll see many of the same names that appear in the table of contents included in the HPLC conference program, so we would certainly recommend attending their sessions here this week.

The session I plan to attend today and that I would personally recommend is "Use of Fine Particles I," held in Harborside Ballroom C at 3 pm. The session is chaired by Mary Ellen McNally, a well known member of LCGC's editorial advisory board, and the first speaker will be the winner of the 2008 LCGC Emerging Leader Award, Gert Desmet, of the Free University of Brussels. His group’s presentation is titled "Optimal Particle Size Selection Under Conditions of Extracolumn Band Broadening" and I think it addresses just the kind of nuts and bolts issue that LCGC is known for. The other presentations in this session will be equally worthwhile, especially that given by Uwe Neue and his group, addressing issues pertaining to the separation of biomacromolecules.

We hope you enjoy the day's presentations, and we look forward to seeing as many attendees as possible at our booth and at the technical sessions.
