HPLC 2002

DDT. August 4–9, Boston (508-616-5550; fax 508-616-5522; www.drugdisc.com).

ACS Prospectives (CombiChem). Sept. 22–25, Orlando (505-989-4517; fax 505-989-1073; www.asms.org).

The 26th International Symposium on High-Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques (HPLC 2002) will be held June 2–7 in Montreal.

As in past events, this year’s symposium will address recent developments and their applications in biotechnology, clinical diagnosis, miniaturization, new materials, validation, affinity chromatography, chiral separations, and hyphenated techniques. Topics will include electrochemistry, miniaturization, hyphenated and multidimensional techniques, analytical biotechnology, and genomics and proteomics, to name just a few.

It is important to note that HPLC 2002 coincides with another event, the Canadian Grand Prix auto races, which draws thousands of visitors to Montreal during the same week.You are strongly advised to book your hotel accommodation early and take advantage of the block of rooms set aside for symposium delegates. Hotel accommodations for that week are often filled more than a year in advance.

The HPLC 2002 Symposium has been marketed worldwide to chromatographers and to the scientific community via the Internet and other media. Promotional activities will ensure the presence of a large, targeted audience at the scientific exhibit.

Short courses include Advanced HPLC for Pharmaceutical Analysis, which is a half-day advanced HPLC training course at an intermediate–advanced level. Pharmacokinetics for Chemists is a short course that introduces analytical chemists to the terms, concepts, and principles of pharmacokinetics. Other topics include Sample Preparation in Bioanalysis: Principles, Automation and Chemical Aspects, Current Status in Chiral Separations, and Fast LC in Pharmaceutical Analysis and High-Throughput Screening.

The welcome and keynote addresswill be given by Richard Pound, chairman of the World Anti-Doping Agency, who will speak on “Drug Testing in Athletes”. Attendees can also look forward to what is considered the heart of the meeting by past HPLC Symposium participants: the posters and exhibits. They will be intermingled to allow for easy access. All Scientific Program activities will take place at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal.
