September 21-23, 2020 // Heidelberg // Germany
Over the past few years, the field of chromatography modeling has quickly advanced in many areas. This advancement is increasingly driven by industrial needs and experts from the biopharmaceutical industry.
Following the very successful CMD19 in Mainz, the Chromatography Modeling Days 2020 (CMD20) are now initiated and sponsored by GoSilico to further connect modeling professionals working on various modes of chromatography with different objectives in mind.
The goal of the event is again to connect professionals, learn from each other, share best practices and identify robust and sustainable work-flows.
Together with you, we aim to increase the efficiency of modeling applications, to lower the entry barrier for new users and to pave the way for a broad regulatory acceptance.
True to the motto, “best practices: take one, leave one”, we are sure you will gain new insights and inspire the community with your own modeling experience and critical remarks.
Register now and sign up for our newsletter to get all new information on CMD20 right away!

Asking participants, how the CMD 2019 ranks compared to other conferences and user meetings they attended during the last year, 20 % percent rated CMD "far above average", 75 % rated it "above average" and 5 % rated "average" on a five-point scale going from "far above average" to "far below average".Feedback on Chromatography Modeling Days 2019
"You did an incredible job! Perfect session length, nice evening program and an overall relaxed atmosphere!"Feedback on Chromatography Modeling Days 2019
"I never took home so many ideas and impressions from a conference before! The event and the diner events were fantastic."Feedback on Chromatography Modeling Days 2019
