Vilnius has won the bid to host the 18th European Conference of Electroanalysis of the European Society of Electroanalytical Chemistry (ESEAC) in 2020. The event will bring together up to 300 of the most outstanding researchers in electroanalytical chemistry from across Europe and the world.
The conference will cover all aspects of modern and classical electroanalysis, ranging from theoretical approaches to practical applications in different fields. Special attention will also be devoted to younger researchers/scientists who face the challenge of practicing the tradition while simultaneously providing new ideas in the continuously growing research area of electroanalytical chemistry.
This biannual conference of the ESEAC will be a continuation of the successful conference series started in 1986 in Dublin. The Conference rotates among member states every two years, and Vilnius will be the first city in Baltic countries to host the event. The fact that Vilnius has been entrusted with the organisation of an international event of this scale also attests to the recognition of Lithuania’s strong commitment to electrochemical science.
The bid was submitted by the Vilnius Convention Bureau together with Professor Rasa Pauliukaite from the Centre for Physical Sciences and Technology (FTMC) in Vilnius.
