Dear visitor

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, April 3-7, 2016.

The format of MSB 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 visit our website at www.msb2016.org to determine which session is most suited for the presentation of your work. Abstract submissions open Sept. 21, 2015 with a deadline set for Dec. 4, 2015. The MSB meeting encourages exchange of ideas on recently accepted/unpublished original research on microscale separations in a confidential format.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 loveliest town in Canada”, is close to Niagara Falls and local wineries, offering excellent social program activities.
