On our website you can find the final programs. The photographs that were taken during the conference can be found on the website http://anchem.mc.kyoto-u.ac.jp/ICAS2011/Pictures/ICAS2011-Pict.htm. As organizers we thank all participants and supporters for their contributions.


Dear Foreign Participants,


We would like to offer our deepest sympathy and sorrow to those affected by the recent disaster in Northeast Japan caused by the gigantic earthquake and associated tsunami. The executive (organizing) committee of ICAS2011 discussed about the influence of the disaster-stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant and has decided to proceed with the congress as scheduled. In face of this situation, an urgent symposium on gAnalytical Sciences Facing Radioactive Pollutionsh will be organized, where the significance of sampling and accuracy in measurements of radioactivity under unexpected situations will be discussed in view of the responsibility of analytical chemists. Welcome reception originally scheduled on Sunday evening will not be held to express our sincerest condolences.

Environmental radioactivity in Kyoto has remained unchanged as reported by the Japanese Government (URL http://eq.wide.ad.jp/index_en.html and http://mextrad.blob.core.windows.net/page/26_Kyoto_en.html).
The transportation system in Japan will be normally operated except for in some seriously damaged area. Therefore, we would like to encourage you to attend the congress.

The committee is, however, willing to reimburse the registration fees in full, if noticed in writing not later than Friday, April 22, to those who are not able to attend the congress due to inevitable reasons originated from the disaster.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Kyoto.

Shigeru Terabe
Chairman, ICAS2011


ICAS2011, an international congress for analytical sciences co-organized by The Japan Society for Analytical Chemistry (JSAC) and International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), will be held in Kyoto, Japan, May 22 to 26, 2011. This multidisciplinary meeting brings together world's leading scientists, engineers, practitioners, as well as students, to present innovations and advancements and also to address contemporary issues relevant to analytical science and technology. The scientific program consists of plenary and keynote lectures by distinguished scientists and contributed oral and poster presentations. Exhibition of new sprung analytical instruments and resources will be scheduled.
