AUC 2022

AUC 2022 - the 25th International Analytical Ultracentrifugation Workshop and Symposium

Oki!

We cordially invite you to AUC 2022, the 25th International Analytical Ultracentrifugation Workshop and Symposium, to be held in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, on July 10-15, 2022, on the campus of the University of Lethbridge. The University’s Blackfoot name is Iniskim, meaning Sacred Buffalo Stone. The University is located in traditional Blackfoot Confederacy territory. We honour the Blackfoot people and their traditional ways of knowing in caring for this land, as well as all Aboriginal peoples who have helped shape and continue to strengthen our University community.

The focus of AUC 2022 is on solution studies of biological macromolecules, interacting systems, synthetic polymers, nanoparticles and colloids. Techniques such as analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC), dynamic and static light scattering (DLS, MALLS), small angle X-ray and neutron scattering (SAXS, SANS), MST, NMR, SPR, field flow fractionation (FFF), and calorimetry (ITC, DSC) are featured.

AUC 2022 will open with several workshops, which begin on the morning of Sunday, July 10th, and end on Monday, July 11th. These workshops will be given by leading experts in the workshop topics. On Tuesday, July 12th we plan a social event with a trip to Waterton Parks.

A symposium will follow the workshop, starting in the evening of Tuesday, July 12th, with our keynote lecture and continue until the afternoon of Friday, July 15th. The symposium will offer two poster sessions, an exhibitor fair, and roundtable discussions.

Additional details will be posted on this website over the next few months. For now, please mark your calendars and cross your fingers for a Covid-free experience in July of 2022. After three long years since the last time we met for the successful conference in Christchurch, NZ, we are very excited to welcome the AUC community once again, this time in Canada!
