May 10-12, 2021 // Heidelberg // Germany

3 Exciting Days

45 Motivated participants

9 Inspiring talks

1000 ideas to take home

Learn from process developers, modelers and innovators in the biopharmaceutical downstream community

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 2021 (CMD) 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.

Impressions Chromatography Modeling Days 2019

Testimonial CMD Feedback, participant filling out feedback questionnaire
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".
