3rd Workshop on Field-Flow Fractionation – Mass Spectrometry (FFF-MS)

5-6 September 2015, Vienna, Austria

The FFF workshop is set in the framework of the “EU COST Action ES1205” and the “WG4” of the “NORMAN network - engineered nanomaterials”.

The 3rd FFF-MS workshop in 2015 will focus on the analysis of natural colloids in environmental matri-ces. As cooperation between the University of Vienna (Department of Environmental Geosciences) and the Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG, Department G2 - Aquatic Chemistry, Koblenz, Germany) the 3rd FFF-MS Workshop will take place in Vienna, Austria. 

Part I (first day – free of charge) will start with two survey lectures given by experts in the field: Prof. Lee Ferguson (Duke University, USA), and Prof. Horst Geckeis (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany). Scientific presentations will complete the morning session – attendees giving a presentation will be completely reimbursed. During the after-noon session attendees will solve problems regarding data processing and analytical method development.

Part II of the workshop (second day – 280 €) is op-tional and will contain practical lab work. The Uni-versity of Vienna (Environmental Geosciences) has several FFF systems (flow and centrifugal) and on-line coupled detectors (e.g., SLS, DLS, ICP-MS) available where users can collect practical experience and further discuss existing problems (restricted to: 10 participants, application required).
