EUROPEAN SYMPOSIUM ON ATOMIC SPECTROMETRY ESAS 2012 is the international meeting of scientists to share recent developments, exchange ideas, explore new directions and initiate a possible collaboration in the atomic spectrometry area. Leading scientists and researchers will be invited to present their most up-to-date results on this conference, to exchange exciting ideas and experiences as well as look into future development.
XXth SLOVAK-CZECH SPECTROSCOPIC CONFERENCE SCSC 2012 is proceeding with a long term scientific cooperation between both spectroscopic societies. The meetings organized by the Czechoslovak spectroscopic society in the past and the continuation in the tradition of the national Slovak and Czech spectroscopic conferences now continue as joint events (XIXth Slovak-Czech spectroscopic conference, 2008, Častá-Papiernička, Slovakia). The last 14th Czech-Slovak spectroscopic conference took place in Litomyšl (Czech Republic) in 2010. The aim of the XXth SCSC is to bring together experts from universities, academia, official centers, various laboratories, and industry on a world-wide scale, to summarize the current progress in different areas of spectroscopy and the trends in the applications such as chemical, environmental, geological, biological, food, pharmaceutical and industrial materials and to stimulate contacts and mutual exchange of experiences and ideas.
•Spectroscopy and spectrometry: theory, techniques, trends, development and applications in the analysis of the chemical, environmental, geological, biological, food, pharmaceutical, industrial and other materials
•Atomic spectrometry (AAS, AFS, OES, etc.)
•Molecular spectroscopy (UV-VIS, NMR, Raman, IR, etc.)
•X-ray spectrometry (EDS, WDS, XRF, PIXE, XANES, EXAFS, etc.)
•Mass spectrometry (ICP MS, ESI MS, MALDI, LC-MS, GC-MS, TIMS, SIMS, etc.)
•Instrumental radioanalytical methods (Gamma spectroscopy, NAA, etc.)
•Special spectroscopy techniques
•Sample preparation and introduction techniques
•Trace and ultratrace analysis
•Quality of measurements and metrology
will consist of 30 min invited lectures, oral (20 min) and poster presentations. The allocated times include also the discussion. Emphasis will be put not only on the presentation of the latest scientific achievements, new technologies, and instrumentation but also on applications and utilization of spectroscopy in different fields of a practical life. English, Slovak and Czech will be official languages of the conference. Invited lectures and oral presentations given in Slovak or Czech should be visualised in English. A data projector will be available. Posters (90x120cm) should be prepared in English.
