With the event in 2018, 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 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 was traditionally also opportunity for the participation of a large number of younger scientists. We want create a spirit of intensive discussions and rewarding personal encounters that has already distinguished earlier meetings of this series. The particular atmosphere of the nice nature of Low Tatras mountains and valley Demänovská dolina, Jasná where the conference venue is located will add its part to make this conference an unforgettable event and contribution to our mind and body well being.

The symposium is also devoted to the 100th anniversary of the foundation of Comenius University in Bratislava, the oldest and biggest university in the Slovak Republic.
