Welcome to HTC-17
After a challenging year, where we were confronted with the Corona virus pandemic that has severely restricted our means to interact, network and share research, we are happy to announce that we are in advanced preparation of the 17th International Symposium on Hyphenated Techniques in Chromatography and Separation Technology (HTC-17), that will be held in person from 26 to 28 January 2022, at het Pand Conference Center in Ghent, Belgium. HTC-17 will be organized under the auspices of the Royal Flemish Chemical Society (KVCV) and the Separation Science Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry (SSG RSC).
The HTC-17 conference will be the premier platform for state-of-the-art developments in separation technologies and hyphenated techniques. The conference will encompass three parallel sessions consisting of plenary lectures, keynote lectures, tutorials, oral and poster-flash presentations. One of the parallel sessions will be dedicated to young emerging scientists. The symposium will also host an attractive technical exhibition where vendors will present their newest instruments and developments, topped with technical seminars.
We will cover fundamental and practical aspects of liquid-phase and gas chromatography, including UHPLC-MS, 2D-LC, GC(×GC)-MS, SFC, etc. The program will include topics such as sample preparation and hyphenation, emerging detectors, method development and artificial intelligence, column technology and stationary-phase developments, miniaturization and chip technology, dealing with data complexity, mining and curation. We will also address bottlenecks and describe trends and new technologies for a wide range of applications, including (bio-)pharmaceuticals, macromolecules, medical and clinical applications, food analysis and safety, environmental studies, energy, green approaches, etc.
As always, we will ensure abundant networking opportunities during the conference, with an informal beer tasting event organized during a nocturnal poster event and a conference dinner, which will be held in a beautiful monastery.
We look forward to welcoming you in person to HTC-17 in the historic city of Ghent!
