Specials proceedings issue
AES is pleased to team again with the journal BIOMICROFLUIDICS to publish a special proceedings of the work presented at the SCIX-AES Annual Meeting. Please click here for further details.

SciX Conference is a meeting hosted by The Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS) that focuses on analytical chemistry and related sciences. For the fourth year, AES Electrophoresis Society is co-organizing sessions with FACSS to include such topics as dielectrophoresis, micro- and nanofluidics, new applications of conventional electrophoresis, and nextgen electric-field driven separations. The SciX meeting will be held September 29 – October 4, 2013 in Milwaukee, WI. The organizers for the joint FACSS/AES session are Alexandra Ros of Arizona State University Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Edgar Goluch of Northeastern University Department of Chemical Engineering. This year, session topics include Cell and Organelle Electrophoresis, Electrically Driven Processes in Nanofluidic Devices, Electrophoresis and Omics as well as Dielectrophoresis in adddition to an AES award session.

Organizers and session information

Our session organizers include Stephen Jacobson (Indiana State University), Christopher Harrison (San Diego State University), Zachary Gagnon (Johns Hopkins University), Tzu-Chiao Chao (University of Regina), Alexandra Ros and Edgar Goluch. The organized sessions consist of invited speakers and contributed submission from the general submission pool. AES sessions at SciX are typically held on Monday and Tuesday of the conference, with a speakers dinner on Monday night.

We invite you to come, learn and discuss the newest cutting edge work from the leaders in their fields in a dynamic cross-disciplinary environment that seeds innovation. As all of you know, FACSS (now SciX) has always fostered an environment that encourages easy access to the speakers and spirited scientific exchange.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2013 SciX Conference, September 29 - October 4 in Milwaukee, WI and, perhaps, at the Annual AES Meeting, November 3 – 8, 2013 at the Hilton in San Francisco, CA.
