HPLC 2020 in San Diego, CA USA


Because of the extraordinary circumstances that we have all found ourselves in surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are genuinely disappointed to announce that we must postpone the HPLC conference based on CDC guidance and shelter in place orders. As the health and safety of all of our participants remains our primary concern, the HPLC conference is postponed and will take place at the same location on June 18-23, 2022 at the Town and Country hotel and conference center in San Diego, CA, USA. All plenary and invited talks, short courses, tutorials, HPLC Tube contest, Separation Science Slam competition, and Best Poster competition will be automatically postponed to the 2022 program, each invited speaker will be asked to submit updated presentations once the hplc2022.org abstract submission site opens, and there will be room for many additional papers. We believe postponing the conference is the best option to ensure a successful and safe event for our attendees, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors. 

The longest running, most recognized international conference in the world of separations organized by expert scientists for practitioners, researchers, vendors and newcomers




Mary Wirth

The meeting will be held June 20-25, 2020 in the Town and Country Hotel in San Diego, California, USA. Our beautiful host city is an exciting biotech hub along the dramatic Pacific coastline.

The conference is a venue for scientists to network with academic, industrial and governmental leaders in separation science. The format promotes exchange of ideas, best practices, and latest developments. A social program facilitates informal discussion and learning.

The goal of HPLC 2020 is to bring together scientists involved with all aspects of liquid-phase analytical separations from basic research to practice. Technologies include all types of HPLC, 2DLC and electrophoresis, micro- and nanofluidics, bead-based extractions, and coupling separations to mass spectrometry. Topics broadly include medicine and biology, the environment, manufacturing, agriculture, and the science underlying separation processes. A special emphasis will be on the life sciences. The conference program is guided by emerging trends in separations technology and their impact on science, industry, and society.

HPLC 2020 will provide researchers with:

  • an extensive technical program on recent developments, cutting-edge research, and new applications in separation science;
  • practical information that improves productivity;
  • a showcase of the latest innovative commercial offerings in the field through a vendor exhibit, vendor workshops, and user sessions;
  • an idea session on separation technologies of the future; and
  • an educational program with tutorials and workshops for those new to using HPLC and related techniques.

I welcome your participation in the meeting, starting NOW. If you have a suggestion for a session, speaker, topic, workshop or tutorial, or if you are a newcomer and have questions, let me know!
