Closing ceremony

download the print version of the workshop booklet containing program and abtracts

If not done already you should book your hotel as early as possible. Other events during the workshop (e.g. IAA/Frankfurt) lead to a shortage of rooms in Mainz !!

Late poster contributions
Posters are a very important tool for communicating results of research studies towards the audience of the workshop. While the deadline for submitting oral contributions is gone you may still submit your poster contribution (via Email to the conference office using the abstract form). However, please recognize that contributions submitted after August 25 will not be included in the final program/book of abstracts.

Late program changes
Unfortunately our invited speaker Constant van den Berg had to cancel his participation because of personal reasons. Instead his co-author Pascal Salaün will give a presentation with the title: Stripping voltammetry for metals and metalloid speciation in natural waters.

Excepted presentations mentioned in the preliminary program from authors that did not register have been excluded from the final program. The final workshop booklet containing the program and the abstracts is now on this website and can be downloaded as a PDF-File here.
