Due to the extraordinary circumstances that we all found ourselves in as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are genuinely disappointed to announce that we must postpone the 18th International Symposium on Preparative and Industrial Chromatography and Allied Techniques (SPICA 2020), due to take place in Lisbon from October 27-30, 2020.
We made this difficult decision because the health and safety of all of our participants remains our primary concern.
The symposium will take place in Lisbon on October 12-15, 2021.
If you were registered for the 2020 edition, your registration will automatically be valid for the new dates in 2021. For additional information regarding your existing registration, please click here. New registrations will open in fall 2020.
We believe that postponing the symposium is the best option to ensure a successful and safe event for our attendees, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors and we will look to your continued support to make the '18th International Symposium on Preparative and Industrial Chromatography and Allied Techniques' a success in 2021.
We thank the below sponsors & following exhibitors for their renewed support through these difficult times!

SPICA is the prime international event in the field of Preparative and Industrial Chromatography!
The conference is a unique multi-disciplinary forum for expert scientists working in fundamental research and practical applications of Preparative Separation Sciences in the domains of chemistry, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, polymers, natural products, food, and fragrances. A preliminary list of 8 keynote and 10 invited lectures by industrial and academic scientists is available under Confirmed Speakers. Poster sessions, training workshops, free vendor seminars and a commercial exhibition are also main features of the symposium.
