Euroanalysis has become one of the most important broad-spectrum analytical conferences covering all aspects of analytical sciences. It is held every two years in different European countries and is organised under the auspices of the EuCheMS Division of Analytical Chemistry (DAC). In September 2009 this conference was organised in Innsbruck by the Austrian Society of Analytical Chemistry (ASAC) with Wolfgang Buchberger and Wolfgang Lindner as chairmen. The number of participants, about 700 analytical chemists from 53 countries, was as high as in previous conferences. Under the motto “The impact of Analytical Chemistry on Quality of Life”, 130 lectures and 640 poster presentations resulted in a very attractive program which demonstrated the broad diversity of analytical sciences. Euroanalysis 2009 was also selected as the perfect stage to honour scientists with ASAC’s most prestigious awards. The Pregl Medal was awarded to Friedrich Lottspeich (Max-Planck-Institute of Biochemistry, Martinsried, Germany), and the Emich Plaque to Harald Fuchs (University Muenster, Germany). Furthermore, Wolfgang Lindner was presented with the Martin Gold Medal of the Chromatographic Society. The Robert Kellner Lecture Award established by the EuCheMS Division of Analytical Chemistry and sponsored by Springer- Heidelberg in memory of the achievements of Robert Kellner was received by Boris Mizaikoff (University Ulm, Germany). The preparations for Euroanalysis 2011 in Belgrade (Serbia) have already started in order to continue this successful series of conferences.
