9th Aegean Analytical Chemistry Days (AACD2014)


- A Tribute to Şeref Güçer, Osman Yavuz Ataman and John Stratis -







The initial aim of the "Aegean Analytical Chemistry Days (AACD)" conferences has always been to bring together the analytical chemists from the countries surrounding Aegean Sea. Since the first event in Izmir, Turkey in 1998, many analytical chemists, and not only, from all over the world, have also attended these biennial conferences. The statistical distribution of those participated in the previous eight events showed that the AACD conferences have become an international event, widely accepted as a forum for:

·   presenting new trends and developments in analytical chemistry

·   discussing new applications of environmental, food and industrial analysis with a special emphasis to quality aspects

·   promoting the presentation of young scientists' research

·   exchanging ideas and promoting collaborations for joint research projects

The Organizing Committee of the 9th Aegean Analytical Chemistry Days (AACD2014) in collaboration with the Continuation Committee has decided to dedicate the Conference to Professors Şeref Güçer, Osman Yavuz Ataman and John Stratis for their contribution to the establishment of the Aegean meetings as International Conferences and their support to the young analytical chemists.

The 9th Aegean Analytical Chemistry Days (AACD2014) will be organized in Chios. Chios is a North Aegean island very well known for the unique mastic (http://www.chios.com/). The island is connected by ferryboat from Pireas (Athens), Thessaloniki and Çeşme (Turkey) as well by airplane from Athens and Thessaloniki. There are also flights from/to Rhodes.  Internationally recognized invited speakers will give Plenary and Keynote Lectures. The organizers will prepare a balanced programme with oral communications of studies of general interest and novelty and young scientists’ contributions, along with thematic poster sessions.

Abstracts will be published in the Book of Abstracts, while full papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of the internationally renowned journal of Analytical Chemistry, Analytical Letters.

The organizing committee is pleased to invite you to participate in the 9th Aegean Analytical Chemistry Days and enjoy with us the stimulating scientific programme and a wonderful social programme.
