Conference Announcement

6th Rio Symposium on Atomic Spectrometry, 3—9 December 2000, Pucon, Chile

Part I of this meeting will comprise a scientific program of plenary lectures, short oral presentations, and posters on atomic absorption, optical emission, atomic fluorescence, and inductively coupled plasma (ICP)-mass spectrometry. Specific topics will include the following:

  • instrumentation developments
  • new method developments
  • vapor generation techniques
  • sample preparation and pretreatment
  • preconcentration
  • sample introduction
  • solid and slurry sampling
  • interferences, their mechanisms and their prevention
  • flow injection and miniaturization
  • elemental speciation analysis
  • quality assurance
  • chemometrics in atomic spectroscopy
  • applications in environmental, industrial, clinical, toxicological, biochemical, food, drug, agricultural, hydrological, geological, mineralogical, metallurgical, and petrochemical samples; in process control and analysis; and in high-purity materials.

Part II of the symposium will consist of a workshop on fundamental studies and instrumental developments in electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry, electrothermal vaporization, inductively coupled plasma, and optical emission and mass spectrometry, presented as research papers in invited lectures and short oral presentations.
