Welcome Message From Conference Chair
Welcome to HPLC 2012 in Anaheim!
On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committees, I am pleased to welcome you to the International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Separations and Related Techniques, which is the 38th edition of this prestigious conference.
HPLC 2012 provides five days packed with plenary lectures, keynote lectures, oral presentations, posters, technical seminars, tutorials, and exhibition. You will be able to learn the latest advances achieved in separations carried out in liquid phase, listen to news concerning the related techniques, and get insight into variety of exciting applications using new column technologies, micro- and nanodevices, different -omics, diagnostics and plenty of other interesting information. This conference also provides a superb venue to interact with colleagues and renew old friendships. The wide-ranging vendor exhibition will include a number of companies showing their latest innovations useful in research embracing separation science and related areas.
Although HPLC has previously visited the United State’s West Coast – landing three times in San Francisco (1986, 1996, and 2006) and once in Seattle (2000) – it has never been held in Southern California. Thus, HPLC 2012 Anaheim marks its Southern California debut.
While some may consider it a suburb of Los Angeles, Anaheim is a world-class destination in its own right, welcoming 40 million visitors each year. Anaheim is well known for its theme parks and two professional sports teams: Angels in major league baseball and the Ducks in ice hockey. The conference venue, the Marriott Anaheim hotel, is conveniently located in the heart of the Anaheim Resort District, offering excellent meeting and exhibition space together with unrivaled amenities and services. HPLC 2012 is an ideal opportunity to come to Southern California with the entire family. While one parent attends the symposium, family members are free to enjoy the local thrills. Kids of all ages can discover the magic at Disneyland Park® and California Adventure Park®. Others will enjoy shopping at the nearby shops at Anaheim GardenWalk or taking in a ballgame at Angel’s stadium. Anaheim offers an endless variety of restaurants, bars and wineries serving an enticing menu of dining and nightlife options.
Clearly, HPLC 2012 in Anaheim promises to be a stunning combination of science, family and fun.
