New York | Heidelberg, 18 February 2015

Springer is proud to be a primary sponsor of two key lectures at the EUROANALYSIS 2015 conference, to be held in Bordeaux, France from 6-10 September, 2015. The conference is organized by the Division of Analytical Chemistry (DAC) of EuCheMS, and provides participants with an overview of contemporary analytical chemistry.

Chair of the Steering Committee of DAC, Professor Paul Worsfold of Plymouth University in the UK said, "Analytical Chemistry is a key scientific discipline that underpins advances in many fields, including biosciences and environmental sciences. The latest developments in Analytical Chemistry technologies, methods and applications are presented every two years at the EUROANALYSIS series of conferences organized by the Division of Analytical Chemistry of EuCheMS. Two highlights of the conference in Bordeaux will be the delivery of the Robert Kellner Lecture by Professor Bernhard Lendl, and a lecture by the DAC-EuCheMS Award recipient Professor Miguel Valcárcel. We are delighted Springer was able to help sponsor these important awards."

The Robert Kellner Lecture recognizes a European individual who has made substantial recent contributions in the last five years to the advancement of Analytical Chemistry research or education. The 2015 award goes to Professor Bernhard Lendl of the University of Vienna, Austria.

The DAC-EuCheMS Award recognizes a European individual who has demonstrated significant and sustained achievements in Analytical Chemistry research or education throughout his or her career. The 2015 awardee is Professor Miguel Valcárcel of the University of Córdoba, Spain. This will be the inaugural presentation of this award.
