What do AFS Conference Attendees Say!

“Since I started my professional career in the separations field in 2001 I am a constant attendee of the AFS annual conference. I have benefited from my attendance in many ways, from getting aware of the newest developments in the separations area to making a lot of new valuable contacts and friends. Also the opportunity to present my own latest work helped me to generate interest and to get extremely valuable feedback, which was very beneficial for my research work. Thank you AFS.”
