It is our great pleasure to announce that the 13th International Symposium on the Synthesis and Applications of Isotopes and Isotopically Labelled Compounds is going to be held on 4-7 June 2018 in the capital of the Czech Republic - Prague - the City of a Hundred Spires, included in the UNESCO list of cultural heritage sites. The symposium will take place in the historical rooms of the National House of Vinohrady.
This Symposium is the 13th in the series of international meetings organised by the International Isotope Society every 3 years. Since the beginnig of the new millenium the scientists from many diverse fields related to the use of isotopes and isotopically labelled compounds have met in Dresden, Germany (2000), Boston, Massachusetts, USA (2003), Edinburgh, Great Britain (2006), Chicago, Illinois, USA (2009), Heidelberg, Germany (2012) and Princeton, New Jersey, USA (2015).
The local organising committee is determined to do its best to preserve the high quality of the series despite the unlucky ordinal number of the Prague meeting. On behalf of the organizers - the International Isotope Society, the Central European Division of the International Isotope Society and the Local Organizing Committee, I would like to invite you to reserve 4-7 June 2018 in your agenda for the presentation of your latest achievements and for discussions with your colleagues from across the world in Prague whether you work in the field of drug development, body imaging and diagnostics, the production of radioisotopes or stable isotopes, environmental studies, the development of radiometric techniques or any new field of the application of isotopes and isotopically labelled compounds.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Prague in June 2018.
Tomáš Elbert, the Chairman of the Local Organising Committee
