Welcome to LACE 2018

First, we must express our appreciation to all members of the Scientific and Organizing Committee and to the institutions and companies whose generous contributions will help to make this meeting a successful and scientifically rewarding event.

LACE symposium series was created in 1995 in a small meeting in Santiago, Chile with the purpose of keeping Latin American scientists abreast of the latest advances in technology for microseparations, specifically capillary electrophoresis and microchip technology.

Mendoza, one of the great wine capitals of the world, is a cosmopolitan city known for its tree-lined streets, sunny climate, fabulous hotels and spas, world-class restaurants, a range of additional adventures and a vibrant local culture. Beautiful Mendoza is the gateway city for an authentic Argentine Winelands experience, wineries range from craft estates to breathtaking architectural masterpieces. This is also the perfect destination from which to conquer the Aconcagua Mountain, the second highest of the Seven Summits. A stopover in Mendoza will never be quite enough, which is why the destination often has a swelling of repeat travellers.

The symposium is structured in four days with initial postgrade course, followed by plenary lectures and contributed communications, as well as poster sessions, vendor seminars and exposition. Sessions will include proteomics, glycomics, foodomics, metabolomics, genetic analysis, DNA sequencing and separation, miniaturization and microfluidics, bioanalysis, biotechnology, (bio)pharmaceutical analysis, applications, multidimensional separation approaches, hyphenated techniques, mass spectrometry, novel instrumentation, sample treatment, and more.

The Scientific and Organizing Committees sincerely hope that all aspects of the conference, the scientific sessions, the discussions, the pre-symposium course, and instrumentation exhibition, will serve their intended purposes to advance the science of electroseparations and to foster scientific contacts.

It is our sincere wish that your experience this year in Mendoza be both enjoyable and professionally rewarding.
