Liquid Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry

10–12 November 2004, Montreux, Switzerland

The International Association of Environmental Analytical Chemistry will hold the 21st Annual Meeting on Liquid Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS) in Montreux, Switzerland, 10–12 November 2004. A short course will be held 8–9 November. Following the continuous growth in LC/MS, nearly 700 scientists are expected, including research and development managers, technicians and LC/MS operators, and company representatives, particularly vendors from the mass spectrometry and separation science area.

The Montreux LC/MS conference is the world’s premier conference on LC/MS and all related hyphenated technologies including important aspects of sample pretreatment, separation technologies, and novel software/bioinformatics approaches. Novel instrumentation will be a key focus of the meeting. New developments in the field will allow for maximum interaction between the participants. Introductory courses will stimulate newcomers to enter the exciting world of LC/MS.

Important trends like miniaturization and automation will be included in the program, as will highlights from strategic industrial developments impacting on the LC/MS field (for example, within the pharmaceutical industry). Novel approaches in drug discovery and development will be discussed, such as proteomics, metabolomics, systems biology, target and biomarker discovery, novel bioanalytical methodology, and impurity screening. In addition, developments in agriculture, chemical biotech, and environmental areas will be well covered.
