10th International Conference on Instrumental Methods of Analysis Welcome We are pleased to announce the 10th anniversary of the International Conference  on "Instrumental Methods of Analysis: Modern Trends and Applications", IMA-  2017, scheduled to take place from 17-21 September 2017 in the city of Heraklion  on the island of Crete in Greece. IMA-2017 will be organized by the University of  Crete and the National Technical University of Athens. The conference will be held  in the conference center of Aquila Atlantis Hotel located in the centre of Heraklion  city.  IMA is a biannual series of conferences that started in 1999 and covers all areas of  modern trends and applications of Chemical Analysis. The past events were held  in Chalkidiki (1999), Ioannina (2001), Thessaloniki (2003), Heraklion (2005),  Patras (2007), Athens (2009) and Chania (2011), Thessaloniki (2013) and  Kalamata (2015) with 250-300 scientific papers presented by scientists from all  over the world at each one. For the last 18 years IMA has provided an excellent  framework for the presentation of new concepts, instruments, methods, systems,  and applications in the area of modern chemical analysis. Researchers and  scientists from Universities, Research Institutions, State Organizations, and  Industry come together during the meeting to present and discuss the current state  of the art in the area of instrumental methods of analysis. At the same time, it  provides the grounds for graduate and post graduate students to present their  projects, discuss scientific collaborations with other groups, as well as to explore  employment opportunities.  Topics to be covered >>> The scientific program will consist of keynote lectures, oral and poster  presentations, given by a wide mix of scientists ranging from established  academics and world leaders in analytical chemistry, all the way through to  dynamic and ambitious graduate students. ​In addition, we aim to attract  contributions from commercial organizations, including presentations of new  instrumentation, new applications and assessment of future commercial trends  and opportunities. Furthermore, interesting workshops in the framework of  IMA2017 will be organized. We therefore anticipate a very energetic and dynamic  scientific gathering!  More details you will find soon in our website and our Facebook group.  We look forward to welcome you to Heraklion for IMA-2017, and in return promise  a rewarding and enjoyable conference!  The Chair of IMA2017  10th International Conference on Instrumental Methods of Analysis - IMA 2017 17-21 September 2017, Heraklion, Greece Modern Trends and Applications National Technical University of Athens University of Crete Prof. Spiros A.
