From October 6 - 9, 2013, the 20th International Symposium on Electro- and Liquid Phase Separation Techniques (ITP2013) took place in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, Spain. The symposium series is one of the premier symposia on electrical field driven liquid phase separation techniques. Originating from a conference with premier focus on isotachophoresis (explaining the acronym) the series evolved to comprise all liquid phase electro separation techniques. Initially bi-annually, the series now takes places every other year in the Americas and Europe and has expanded it focus to encompass pressure driven liquid phase separations (HPLC).

The conference took place in the lovely hotel Beatrice on the east side of the Canary Island of Tenerife close to the pacific ocean. Not surprisingly, this fine location draw approximately 250 participants fom world wide academic and industrial organisations. Details of the program can be taken from this page on the symposium website.

The organizers Prof. Alejandro Cifuentes, Madrid and Dr. Javier Hernandez-Borges, Tenerife did an excellent job especially providing ample time and excellent service for discussion during meals, receptions at the pool side and during a tour of the symposium participants to the foot of the Teide, the highest mountain of Spain (3700 m).
