On behalf of the organizing committee of the 30th International Symposium on Chromatography, ISC 2014, it is our pleasure to invite you to Salzburg, Austria, 14 – 18 September 2014. The ISC series has established itself as one of the premier meetings for discussion and presentation of all modes of separation sciences such as gas chromatography, high performance liquid chromatography, electro-driven separation techniques or supercritical fluid chromatography, to name but a few methodological topics.
A major focus of this Symposium will also be set on the newest developments in mass spectrometry, the more and more dominating mode of detection employed in combination with separation techniques. According to the motto of ISC 2014 "Communicating Separation Science for the Future", special emphasis will be given to all aspects of separation sciences including sample preparation and pre-treatment, all sorts of separation techniques in the gas and liquid phase, detection methods, and applications in various fields.
As an integral part of the scientific program consisting of lectures, tutorials, podium discussions and poster sessions, an international exhibition on instrumentation and services related to all fields of separation sciences will be organized. ISC 2014 provides a forum for attendees from academia, industry and government research institutions for scientifi c exchange and networking, not only during scientific sessions but also while enjoying the social and cultural highlights offered by the city of Salzburg. We are looking forward to welcoming you to Salzburg.
