The Canadian Society for Analytical Sciences and Spectroscopy

Welcomes you to the

64th International Conference on Analytical Sciences and Spectroscopy

(64th ICASS)

August 8-10, 2022

Four Points by Sheraton Kingston 285 King Street East, Kingston, ON, K7L 3B1, Canada


• Exhibition as well as oral and poster sessions to learn about the latest developments on a variety of topics.
• Networking breakfast, coffee breaks and lunch included in the registration fee each day.
• Additional networking activities included in the full registration fee: sunset dinner cruise of the Thousand Islands on August 8th and banquet on August 9th featuring renowned magician/comedian Dick Joiner (different show than in 2018).

The 64th ICASS organizing team has the pleasure of welcoming you to the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel located in downtown Kingston, close to Lake Ontario and numerous restaurants and shops.

An outstanding program awaits you, which will start with a plenary session on Monday morning, sponsored by PerkinElmer and Burgener Research, where award presentations will be made. Four to five parallel sessions will then follow from August 8th to August 10th, inclusively. A dedicated poster session will be held on August 8th, immediately following the oral sessions and preceding the Sunset Dinner Cruise. The hotel is conveniently located a 5 minute walk from the deck where boarding will take place.

To facilitate and encourage networking, all meals and coffee breaks (sponsored by Queen’s University Faculty of Arts and Science, SFR, FlowJEM, CEM, and Isospark Analytical Solutions) are included in the registration. Thanks to CEM and Queen’s University Faculty of Arts and Science, three students will get poster cash prizes of $150-$250 during the banquet on August 9th (and there will be at least one joke of the day!). There will also be a performance by renowned magician/comedian Dick Joiner, who will do walk-around magic during the reception sponsored by Agilent Technologies and a stage show during dinner. Prepare to laugh and be amazed!

Our hope is that the program featuring numerous high-quality presentations, a nice exhibition, and numerous networking opportunities in a relaxed atmosphere will make the 64th ICASS a memorable event. May you enjoy many fruitful discussions and make several new acquaintances!
