FFF2018: Columbia, SC

The Center for Environmental Nanoscience and Risk (CENR) is organizing the 19th International Symposium on Field- and Flow-Based Separations (FFF2018), which will be held in May 2018, in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. As one of the globally leading conferences on molecular and nanoscale separations, the FFF2018 will bring together scientists, engineers, regulators and industry concerned with separation and characterization of: manufactured nanoparticles and nanomaterials; environmental nanoparticles, colloids and particles; natural and synthetic macromolecules; proteins, biomacromolecules and biomarkers; pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceutics and drug carrier systems; cells and viruses; and food and agriculture.

With new advances in micro- and nano- scale versions of field- and flow- based separations (Microfluidics and Nanofluidics), the symposium will also be of interest to researchers in the lab-on-a-chip and micro-total-analysis-systems (m-TAS) fields.

The FFF2018 will focus on new developments and applications of all forms of Field-Flow Fractionation (FFF) and related field- and flow separation techniques such as SPLITT, nanoscale flow separations, and electro-, magnetic-, acoustic-, and dielectrophoretic-driven separations.

The symposium will be held at the Hilton Columbia Center Hotel in the center of Columbia with immediate access to the Congaree Vista, a vibrant area full of restaurants, hotels, museums, shopping and outdoor pursuit only minutes away (Cayce Riverwalk Park, Congaree National Park and the Harbison State Forest.

On behalf of the Organizing and Scientific Program Committees, Mohammed Baalousha (Center for Environmental Nanoscience and Risk, University of South Carolina) is pleased to invite you to participate in the 19th International Symposium on Field- and Flow-based Separations (FFF2018).
