ITP symposium series, inaugurated in Belgium in 1979, is one of the most recognized international meetings addressing the latest issues and innovations in all areas of electro- and liquid phase-separations techniques. Originally organized bi-annually in Europe, it became a yearly event in 2010 and is now switching between the continents.

APCE series was founded by the leading separation and analytical scientists from the Asia-Pacific region. From the first symposium held in 1996 in Singapore, it soon developed into a premier international conference in the region. The symposium covers all aspects of chromatography, mass spectrometry, electrophoresis, microfluidics, biosensors, GC/LC/CE/chip-MS, and sample pretreatment. The current emphasis is on the relevant applications in genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, protein-drug quality control, food safety, environmental analysis, biotechnology, and medical analysis.

CECE started in 2004 as a friendly meeting of colleagues from Prague, Vienna, Bratislava, and Brno. The name CECE initially 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 imply any particular technique. Today, CECE aims at bringing in distinguished analytical scientists to present the newest trends in their research fields.

Since 2012 a one-day section CECE Junior has been added to the program with oral presentations of young scientists. While the primary 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. The CECE and CECE Junior share a poster section open to all participants.
