The International Symposium on Extraction Technologies (ExTech) series started in 1999, and has been held annually around the world [Waterloo, Canada (1999-2000), Barcelona, Spain (2001), Paris, France (2002), St. Pete Beach, FL, USA (2003), Campinas, Brazil (2004), Liepzig, Germany (2005), York, UK (2006), Ålesund, Norway (2007), Bruges, Belgium (2008), Rapid City, USA (2009), Poznan, Poland (2010), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2011) and Messina, Italy (2012)].

The ExTech® symposium is the world leading scientific meeting for sample preparation, analytical extraction and sample clean-up techniques. The focus of the symposia has been the discussion and presentation of the theoretical and fundamental aspects of well-established and novel technologies and materials, as well as their application to biological, pharmaceutical, chemical, clinical, environmental and forensic analysis. Lectures and presentations will cover traditional and emerging techniques such as Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) and Microextraction (SPME), Stir Bar Sorptive Extraction (SBSE), and Liquid Phase Microextraction (LPME), as well as novel materials and formats. It will be a perfect opportunity for researchers and analysts to present, discuss and exchange ideas in all areas of sample preparation and extraction, on application fields such as green chemistry, forensic, bioanalytical, natural products, food and flavor chemistry. A short course on "Recent Advances on Sample Preparation for Chemical, Pharmaceutical and Environmental Analysis" will be held on August, 4.

After eight years ExTech is returning to Brazil and will in João Pessoa - Paraíba in 2013. The 15th International Symposium on Advances in Extraction Technologies which will be hosted jointly by the University of Campinas (Unicamp), University of Lisbon, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC) and University of São Paulo (USP), at the Tambaú Resort in August 4 to 7, 2013.
