Home About MSB2016 Program General Info Registration Sponsoring

Dear Colleague,

The organising committee of the 32nd International Symposium on Microscale Separations and Bioanalysis (MSB 2016) is pleased announce the extension of the deadline for submission of abstracts for late breaking oral and posters presentations and of the early registration deadline for MSB2016 to January 15, 2016. CASSS will provide a limited number of travel grants as a reimbursement of expenses for participation for PhD candidates or academic post-docs presenting posters or talks at the MSB 2016 with an application deadline on January 15.

The format of MSB2016 has evolved into an interactive forum for the discussion of cutting-edge research on the frontiers of separation science. MSB2016 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!

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

MSB2016, will take place April 3-7 in the beautiful and historic town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada and will bring together experts and practitioners from across the globe to discuss cutting-edge research on microscale separations and bioanalysis covering fifteen different session topics and four short courses.

The affordable all-inclusive registration fee includes catered meals, gala dinner and presentations in the lovely Georgian-style Queen’s Landing hotel, our stunning venue for MSB 2016.

We look forward to seeing you there in April 2016!
