ITP symposium series, inaugurated in Belgium in 1979, is one of the most recognized international meeting addressing the latest issues and innovations in all areas of electro- and liquid phase-separations techniques.
The scientific areas of the symposium cover a wide range of technologies and applications based on electro- and liquid phase-separations: capillary and microchip electrophoresis, electrokinetic chromatography, two-dimensional electrophoresis, HPLC, UPLC, Micro- and Nanoscale HPLC, and their hyphenation with MS.
APCE series has become one of the international conferences in Separation Science and Analytical Science as well as the related topics since the first symposium held in 1996 in Singapore. This symposium focuses on the fundamentals aspects of chromatography, mass spectrometry, electrophoresis, microfluidic chip, biosensor, GC/LC/ CE/chip-MS and sample pretreatment. The emphasis is paid on the relevant applications in genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, protein-drug quality control, food safety, environmental analysis, and biotechnology as well as medical analysis.
CECE started in 2004 as a friendly meeting of colleagues from Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, and Brno. The name CECE originally reflected the presentations by Bob Gas, Dusan Kaniansky and Ernst Kenndler on capillary electrophoresis. The scope of the meeting has expanded since then and the name CECE (pronounce che che) now doesn't have any particular meaning, except, perhaps the "wow" in the Brno dialect. Today, CECE aims at bringing in distinguished scientists to present the newest trends in their research fields. Since the oral presentations are by invitation only, CECE aims at bringing the newest, cutting edge science to Brno, getting together scientists who don't meet very often and creating an informal atmosphere to promote new ideas and help to establish new partnerships.
Since 2012 a one day section CECE Junior has been added to the program with oral presentations of young scientists. While the main target audiences are the graduate students and young scientists, it is never too late to learn something new and we encourage all our colleagues to come and see the presentations. Both the CECE and CECE Junior share a common poster section open to all participants.
