We are glad to announce the Fifth Conference on Humic Innovative Technologies "Humic substances and living systems" (HIT-2019), which will occur under auspices of the CIS IHSS Chapter and the Lomonosov Moscow State University. HIT-2019 will take place from October 19 to 23, 2019, in the sailing club "Vodnik", located in Moscow region, Russia.
The title of the conference is inspired by substantial progress, which has been recently made in understanding mechanisms of biological activity of humic substances. This got possible due to advances in complex mixture separation techniques, high resolution mass spectrometry, novel methods of biochemical analysis, and molecular biology. The main goal of HIT-2019 is to bring these new achievements to awareness of broad scientific community.
The conference will consider various aspects of interactions between humic substances and living systems. Particular attention will be given to the progress achieved in the field of establishing relationships between structure and biological activity of humic substances. The sections will be organized in accordance with the different levels of living systems: from microorganisms and fungi to plants, animals, and humans. The conference program includes plenary, oral, and poster sessions, as well as two round tables, an exhibition on humic products and new bioanalytical equipment, and the IUPAC working group meeting.
Welcome to HIT-2019!
We will be happy to see you in Moscow!
