33rd Symposium on the Separation and Characterization of Biologically Important Molecules
July 17-19, 2013 in Boston
Dr. Barry Boyes and Prof. Ron Orlando, Co-Chairs
Join us at the Westin Boston Waterfront for Three Days of Exciting Separation Science and Beautiful Summer Weather in Downtown Boston.
ISPPP Symposium Abstract Deadlines
ISPPP 2013 is a new edition of the ISPPP meeting series with a wide spectrum of lectures covering many brilliant research ideas and various disciplines. The program draws world renowned speakers who discuss novel approaches for the separation, purification, and characterization of biologically important molecules.
We will continue to consider abstracts for oral presentation as long as they are submitted by March 28. After March 28, we will consider for oral presentation only abstracts of papers describing major, late breaking developments in the field. Authors who need additional time to obtain legal review are encouraged to submit online a tentative title and brief description of the work to be presented. All abstracts will be kept confidential until accepted into the program. In addition, you are encouraged to contribute to the Poster Sessions where high quality papers will be prominently presented in an environment to encourage deeper discussions. Poster presentations will be included in the Online Scientific Program as they are accepted. The final date to submit poster abstracts for inclusion in the Final Scientific Program is June 6. For details, please visit the website at www.ISPPP.org

· Discover new methods combined with applications-focused examples in the analytical and preparative world through interaction with experts from around the globe.
· Learn about the latest innovations in technologies that are critical in clinical and biopharmaceutical research, and are requirements in the manufacturing and quality control of new biotherapies and diagnostics.
· Preview emerging technologies in separations and mass spectrometry.
· Discuss challenges in the lab with experts in the field to solve difficult or challenging analytical or preparative problems.
· Build global contacts through one-on-one networking with experts in analysis and applications who will help better equip you to perform analysis and purification, leading to more effective and creative research.
· Experience new products and instrumentation and engage in new ideas to fully appreciate how innovative technology can help you reach your goals.
· The ISPPP Symposium is focused on the communication of technical expertise and state-of-the-art bioanalytical science to experts in the biomolecular sciences to enable advancement of research into biological substances and matrices. The meeting is highly focused on the science of separations and is the longest running symposium on biological separations by practitioners, for practitioners.
For the first time, the 2013 ISPPP Symposium will partner with another well-known symposium series, the PREP Symposium chaired by Prof. Giorgio Carta of the University of Virginia, in cooperation with Prof. Georges Guiochon of the University of Tennessee. The PREP Symposium will blend well with the themes of the ISPPP conference by emphasizing the preparative aspects of purifying biomolecules while ISPPP emphasizes the analytical aspects for these same molecules.
For people seeking comprehensive coverage of bio-chromatography from process scale to analytics, a single, discounted registration fee will provide access to both symposia. See www.ISPPP.org and www.PREPsymposium.org for details. In addition, registered participants from either meeting will be able to attend all parallel sessions held on Wednesday, July 17, 2013.
