The program of ISEAC-39 will consist of invited lectures, oral contributions and poster sessions. Contributions span the full range of the ISEAC scope:


  • The Environmental Part of the conference covers the three elements Air, Water & Soil including anthropogenic chemicals (agricultural and industrial origin, hormonal active and drug residues, human waste water), exhaust gases (indoor/outdoor emissions), fine dust and radioactivity, remediation monitoring and long term transport and distribution Regimes.

  • The Food Part mainly deals with innovative and challenging strategies to maintain Food Safety & Food Fraud (authenticity). Methods for trace analysis of residues, chemical or microbial contaminants and new approaches to tackle nano and packaging materials are presented.

  • One of the aims of ISEAC-38 in Lausanne 2014 was to open the discussion regarding Food Safety by leading food safety experts from Europe and overseas. We will continue this Think Tank Series and the dialogue in the 39th edition talking about Food Production in Emerging but Underdeveloped Nations with Implications on Food Safety and Environmental Issues.
    The Think Tank will be opened by Elke Badde, State Secretary for Health and Consumer Protection, Ministry of Health and Consumer Protection, Hamburg


  • As a novelty for this conference series we have included the session “Thinking outside the box” (Wednesday, July 20th). For this session we are planning with four outstanding speakers showing the view beyond the scientific horizon. 
    One of the speakers is Prof. Dr. Robert Huber (Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry 1988) talking about New Ways  of Vision: Beauty and  Fitness for Purpose of Proteins.
    Our second outstanding headliner is Prof. Dr. R. J. Dwayne Miller from the Departments of Chemistry and Physics, University of Toronto, Canada. He will give a keynote lecture about Mapping Atomic Motions with Ultrabright Electrons. A further outstanding speaker is Prof. Dr. Alexander Makarov, a Russian physicist who led the team that developed the Orbitrap-technology. In November 2013 he was appointed by Professor by Special Appointment of High Resolution Mass Spectrometry at the Department of Chemistry and the Bijvoet Center of Utrecht University in the Netherlands. Last but not least Prof. Dr. Christoph Kutter (Director Fraunhofer Research Institution for Microsystems and Solid State Technologies EMFT, Munich) will close this session with ideas about The Internet of Things.



The meeting will include lectures, poster sessions and an exhibition and accordingly provide for ample possibilities for the distribution of knowledge on latest developments in analytical methods for environmental and food analysis, for the setup of research platforms in an interdisciplinary context for tackling challenges and for initiating new collaborations for research and regulatory measures on a global scale.


The conference will take place at the GEOMATIKUM. The Venue you can find here!


With ISEAC39 we are going to transform ISEAC-conferences towards paperless. All informations needed for the conference will be available for participants via an mobile-app (provided by doubledutch). Therefore a toll free access to wireless local area network (WLAN) will be provided by the organizer during the conference. The link for the download willl be send to registered attendees shortly.


The current version, ISEAC39, is hosted by the HAMBURG SCHOOL OF FOOD SCIENCE (Prof. Dr. Markus Fischer, Director)

Universität Hamburg - der Forschung, der Lehre, der Bildung, zur Homepage

Universität Hamburg is the largest research and educational institution in northern Germany. As one of the country's largest universities, we offer a diverse range of taught programs coupled with excellent research.

The University has established several interdisciplinary key research areas and fosters an extensive network of academic cooperations with leading institutions on a regional, national, and international scale.

Universität Hamburg is committed to sustainable science and scholarship. Our faculties pursue the concept of sustainability in its broadest sense in both research and teaching.




The Conference Series is managed by the International Association of Environmental Analytical Chemistry (IAEAC) which had its beginnings in 1971 with a scientific meeting, organized to provide a forum for how analytical chemists might contribute to the recent “environmental revolution”. Now, for over 40 years, it has had a long and successful lifetime, morphing from that initial meeting into an organization that has a worldwide impact. The main event organized by the IAEAC is the International Symposium on Environmental Analytical Chemistry (ISEAC). Since 2014 Food Analytics became integrated in ISEAC.

The “International Association of Environmental Analytical Chemistry” (IAEAC) is a worldwide operating organization aiming at promoting and maintaining scientific excellence in the area of environmental analytical chemistry and the proper use of the inherent methodologies for the assessment of substances relevant for man and his environment.

The activities of IAEAC are designed to provide the opportunity for scientists to exchange cutting edge research results relevant to environment and to provide training in the most advanced analytical technologies. To accomplish its goals, the organization has established the following regularly occurring events: symposia, workshops, short courses.
