The 42nd International Symposium on Capillary Chromatography (ISCC) and the 15th GC×GC Symposium is a “hyphenated” meeting which will be held again in wonderful Riva del Garda (Italy), from May 13 – 18, 2018. Apart from the most recent advances in the fields of pressure and electrodriven microcolumn separations, and comprehensive 2D GC. This year particular emphasis will be directed to all Comprehensive Separation Technologies in combinations of Capillary Chromatography and 2D GC with various forms of MS from unit-mass to high resolution and from single to hybrid analyzers. Consequently, both the importance and complementary nature of chromatographic and MS processes will be given high consideration. Within the wider context of separation science, great space will be also given to the sample preparation process, in both oral and poster sessions.
The ISCC/GC×GC scientific program will be a rich one, it being characterized by:
- invited contributions from leading scientists reporting the latest most exciting developments
- keynote lectures from promising young researchers
- very active poster sessions
- discussion sessions
- workshop seminars presenting the most recent novelties in scientific instrumentation
- a world-class GC×GC course
Researchers in all areas relevant to the subjects of the symposia are invited to submit abstracts. As is traditional for the Riva meetings, the majority of presentations will be in a poster format and the Scientific Committee will select contributions for oral presentations.
As always, many awards will be assigned in both the ISCC and GC×GC events, recognizing excellence in both established and young scientists, in oral and poster presentations.
Exhibitors and sponsors are a fundamental part of the meeting (without them…Riva wouldn’t be Riva!) and are encouraged to participate by reserving booth space, becoming a sponsor, and to promote the ISCC and GC×GC events.
Last, but not least, the traditional “Riva” social program will be entirely maintained, with one or two events each day: cocktails, the welcome reception, the concert, the wine and cheese evening, and of course, the disco night!
