The last Separation Forum within the scope of an ISPPP Meeting was held at the 1989 Copenhagen Meeting and addressed subjects considered interesting to discuss between the participants. This set up resulted in a stimulated array of discussions well beyond expectations, and after a long intermission we want to give this forum another try.
The committee has suggested some topics for consideration by the participants, however all topics deemed interesting for discussion are highly welcome, and will happily be picked up by the moderator teams under the headline:
HPLC in life sciences – potentials for major contributions in the next decade?!
The separation community today is often confronted with fundamental questions such as:
Is HPLC a mature technology or can we expect dramatic new developments?
Do we exploit HPLC to the full extent or is there still something hidden waiting to be discovered?
To discuss these issues in depth an open dialog is required between delegates, lecturers, exhibitors and experts.
Suggested starting topics & discussion moderators:
1. Perspectives of detection and identification: single molecule detection? (R. Bischoff & G. Rozing)
– Technological evolution or quantum leaps?
– Anything beyond MS on the horizon?
2. Miniaturisation and parallelisation: what are the limits? (Th. Laurell & S. Hober)
– Sensitivity vs. reproducibility and ruggedness
– Suitable for process analytics?
3. Future of column chromatography: hunt for million of theoretical plates? (K.K. Unger, R. Ditz)
– Efficiency without selectivity, does it make sense?
– On-line sample handling and multidimensional approaches – can proteomics succeed without?
4. Competitive (or better complementary) technologies – process chromatography and beyond (A. Jungbauer, J. Hubbuch)
– Is current process technology fit for the future?
– Impact of disposable technologies? Will we see one, many or a combination of new approaches? These and other issues will be discussed in an informal atmosphere.
Visit the posters an talk to the exhibitors and to your col-leagues. All participants are invited to the poster session which will take place in the foyer of the lecture hall among the poster walls and exhibition stands allowing active discussion. The poster session is integrated in the Separation Forum.
This early morning event enables a limited number of students to get in contact with experts from science and industry in an informal atmosphere. Besides the discussions of presenta-tions, posters and at the exhibition during the conference, the breakfast provides an opportunity to discuss the current situa-tion and future perspectives in research and industry. In addi-tion this meeting offers you a chance to extend your network and to exchange ideas and experience with other students.
A special session for young scientists up to 35 years of age will be held where eligible candidates that have been selected by the scientific committee will receive the opportunity to present their latest research results.
