42nd International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC 2015 – Geneva)

Feb 25 2015

The 42nd International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques will be held from June 21st to 25th at the International Conference Centre (CICG) in Geneva, Switzerland hosted by the Division Analytical Sciences of the Swiss Chemical Society. The HPLC series since its first edition in 1973 in Interlaken, Switzerland, was held in Europe, North America and Asia/Pacific and has established itself as one of the leading conference in analytical chemistry, in particular in the field of separation sciences and related topics. Separation sciences and in particular liquid chromatography are playing a key role in almost any field including chemical sciences, food sciences, systems biology, medicine, bioanalysis, quality control, and environmental sciences. Beside exciting new developments in hardware and fundamentals, miniaturisation, multidimensional separations, sample preparation and mass spectrometric detection have become key topics in the field. To cover all these aspects the Conference will be organised around three main parallel sessions covering: 1) Core Separation Technology, Understanding the fundamentals to drive innovation; 2) Hyphenated and Multidimensional Separations, Multidimensional LC, Mass spectrometry and related detection methods, pushing the limits in detection, identification and data processing, and; 3) High Impact Sample Preparation Separation and Detection, on the edge of current and future applications. A fourth session will be dedicated to tutorials and short oral contributions (5-minutes) from selected posters. 

Leading scientists from all over the world will present exciting and motivating plenary, keynotes and tutorial lectures. To name a few: Robert Kennedy (University of Michigan, USA), Peter Jenny (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland), Jack Henion (Ithaca, NY, USA), Ruedi Aebersold (ETHZ, Zürich, Switzerland), Mary J. Wirth (University of Purdue, USA), Peter Schoenmaker (University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands), Emily Hilder (University of Tasmania, Australia), Guowang Xu (University of Dalian, China), Luigi Mondello (University of Messina, Italy) and Thomas Hankemeier (University of Leiden, The Netherlands). A special session will be dedicated to late Georges Guiochon to pay respect and honor his lifelong contributions to separation sciences.

Beside a strong scientific program the conference will hold a large instrumentation, software and consumables exhibition. The participants will also have the opportunity to participate to lunchtime seminars to be updated on the latest developments from the exhibitors. One-day short courses will also be offered on Sunday (June 21st). Significant amount of time will be dedicated to the posters sessions where the participants can present their latest results and interact face-to-face with scientists from all over the world.

The conference will also recognise the contributions of young scientists with the Csaba Horváth Award that honors the memory of Csaba Horváth and recognises his contributions to HPLC, including his interest in fostering the careers of young people in separation sciences and engineering. Also participants can have the opportunity to have their poster selected for a short five minutes presentation in a special session. Travel awards are available from the conference organisation as well as from various supporting scientific organisations and young scientists are encouraged to apply. High level scientific contributions will be awarded during the Conference including: the Widmer-Simon Award, the Uwe D. Neue Award and the ChromSoc Award.

Geneva is a reasonable size city at the end of Lake Leman with a strong international flair and spirit and will provide a very stimulating and open atmosphere for fruitful scientific exchanges and social life. Furthermore an exciting social program awaits the participants. Geneva is easily accessible from all major European cities and offers a wide range of accommodations from affordable prices by students to Grand Hotel style for business participants. 
HPLC 2015 – Geneva should offer a unique event presenting the latest developments in fundamentals and applications for separation sciences stimulating scientific exchanges, synergies and cooperation in a friendly and stimulating environment.
