Started in 2004 as a friendly meeting of colleagues from Prague, Vienna, Bratislava and Brno. The name CECE originally reflected the presentations by Bob Gas, Dusan Kaniansky and Ernst Kenndler on capillary electrophoresis. The scope of the meeting has expanded since then and the name CECE (pronounce che che) now doesn’t have any particular meaning, except, perhaps the „wow” in the Brno dialect.
Today, CECE aims at bringing in distinguished scientists to present the newest trends in their research fields. Since the oral presentations are by invitation only, CECE aims at bringing the newest, cutting edge science to Brno, getting together scientists who don’t meet very often and at creating informal atmosphere to promote new ideas and help establishing new partnerships.
