On behalf of the scientific and organizing committees, we invite you to join us for the 32nd International Symposium on Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis (MSB 2016) being held at Queen’s Landing in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada from April 3-7, 2016.
The format of MSB 2016 has evolved into an interactive forum for the discussion of cutting-edge research on the frontiers of separation science. MSB 2016 will continue this trend and be the leading conference on microscale separations and bioanalysis that spans new advances in separation theory and method/technology development to novel applications relevant to human health and the environment. If you are currently incorporating microscale separations like capillary electrophoresis, micro- and nano-HPLC, GC, ion mobility spectrometry, microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip devices into your research, then this is a meeting you will not want to miss!
We invite you to browse the website to learn more about this meeting. Abstract submissions open from Sept. 21, 2015 with a early deadline set for Dec. 4, 2015. The MSB meeting encourages exchange of ideas on recently accepted or unpublished original research on microscale separations in a confidential format. Registration will be limited to 275 participants to create a “smaller meeting” ambience that ensures vigorous scientific exchange between delegates. Seventy percent of the program will be built from submitted abstracts, where a double blind peer review process will ensure the highest caliber of science being presented. The venue, which is situated in a scenic and historic location considered to be the “the loveliest town in Canada”, is close to Niagara Falls and local wineries, offering excellent social program activities.
MSB 2016 will feature stimulating pre-conference workshops, an affordable all-inclusive registration fee including catered meals/plenary dinner, a single parallel session featuring renowned invited speakers along with a special focus on young investigators. We have an exciting list of confirmed plenary speakers, together with diverse session topics organized by leading researchers.
We look forward to hosting a memorable conference and welcoming you in Niagara-on-the-Lake next spring!
