The African Network of Analytical Chemists (SEANAC), in collaboration with the Department of Chemistry, Eduardo Mondlane University and the Academy of Sciences of Mozambique, will be hosting the 4th SEANAC International Conference on Analytical Chemistry for the Environment, Health and Water. The conference will be held at the Joaquim Chissano International Conference Center in Maputo, Mozambique; 8–11 July 2012.
Like other SEANAC conferences, previously held in Botswana and Swaziland, this fourth conference will continue to offer an excellent platform for networking as well as exposure to regional and international analytical chemists. The conference will also form part of SEANAC’s 10-year anniversary as a network whose aim is to (a) promote analytical chemistry through collaboration, research, research training, teaching, and information sharing; (b) facilitate inventory, access, operation, maintenance, and repairs of analytical equipment; and (c) collaborate with organizations with similar aims.
The conference will offer a pre-symposium workshop on Gas Chromatography (Dr. Peter Apps) and Sample Preparation (Dr. Ron Majors). It will have a full range of plenary, invited lectures, and oral and poster contributions. The organizers consider oral and poster presentations to be equivalent. Confirmed plenary speakers include Lo Gorton (Sweden); Eduardo Ferreira da Silva (Portugal); Jean-Marie Dimandja, Emanuelle Boselli, and Federica Fiori (USA); Jailson B. de Andrade (Brazil); Roger Smith (UK); Manuel Miro (Spain); and Charlotta Turner (Sweden).
Papers are invited on all aspects of analytical chemistry with application in the thematic areas of environment, health, and water. Other novel findings and applications that seek to advance analytical chemistry are also welcome.
The conference will be held in Maputo, which is famous for its sea food, in particular the very very large prawns. Maputo has a range of hotels from bed and breakfast to 5 star. Most of the hotels in Maputo are rather new as Mozambique is experiencing rapid economic growth.
