Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography and Separation technology

Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography and Separation technology

Conference center Het Pand, Ghent, Belgium
29 Jan 2020


We have the pleasure announcing the 16th International Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography and Separation technology in Conference Center ‘t Pand in Ghent (Belgium) from January 29 till January 31, in 2020. HTC-16 is organized under the auspices of the Royal Flemish Chemical Society (KVCV) and the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).

The HTC-16 conference will be the premier platform for state-of-the-art developments in separation technologies and hyphenated techniques. The conference will encompass 3 parallel sessions consisting of plenary lectures, keynote lectures, tutorials, oral and poster-flash presentations. One of the parallel sessions is dedicated to young emerging scientists. The symposium will also host an attractive technical exhibition where vendors present their newest instruments and developments, topped with technical seminars.

We will cover fundamental and practical aspects of liquid-phase and gas chromatography, including UHPLC-MS, 2D-LC, GC(×GC)-MS, SFC, etc. The program will include topics such as sample preparation and hyphenation, advances in method development, establishing high peak capacity and high-throughput analysis, dealing with data complexity, mining and curation. We will also address bottlenecks and describe trends and new technologies for a wide range of applications, including (bio-)pharmaceuticals, medical and clinical applications, food and beverages, environmental studies, energy, etc. Outside the scientific sessions there will be abundant networking possibilities with, amongst others, a beer tasting event and a conference dinner.

We look forward to welcoming you to HTC-16 in the historic city of Ghent!
