It is a great honor and a particular pleasure for me to cordially invite you to the 23rd International Symposium on Separation Sciences (ISSS 2017), to be held in Vienna from 19-22 September 2017 that will continue the series of successful conferences organized under the auspices of the Central European Group for Separation Sciences (CEGSS). Previous events in this conference series were held in 2016 in Torún (Poland), in 2015 in Ljubljana (Slovenia) and in 2014 in Prague (Czech Republic). With the event in 2017, we wish to again offer a stage for the presentation and discussion of exciting new research developments, important applications and for showcasing the most up-to-date examples of analytical instrumentation and supplies as well as analytical services in the associated company exhibition.
Many of the leading scientists in the field have already agreed to give presentations at this conference which will be full of scientific highlights and also allow you to bring attention to your work in the form of contributed oral and poster presentations. The intermediate size of this conference where traditionally also the participation of a large number of younger scientists is expected, will create a spirit of intensive discussions and rewarding personal encounters that has already distinguished earlier meetings of this series. The particular atmosphere of the historic center of Vienna where the conference venue is located will add its part to make this conference an unforgettable event !
Together with the members of the Scientific Committee of this conference, I look forward to seeing you in Vienna !
Chairman of the 23rd International Symposium on Separation Sciences (ISSS 2017)
