Separation Science Slam at HPLC 2020 **postponed to June 18 to 23, 2022 due to COVID-19**

50th International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separation and Related Techniques

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. Find out more about the variety of KNAUER's products and services at our booth in San Diego. Take this opportunity to speak personally to our KNAUER representatives and discover our excellent products.

Slammers Compete on the Separation Science Stage

Welcome to the 2nd Separation Science Slam, a competition for scientists (not older than 35 years old) to present their research related to liquid chromatography workflow. The competition features short scientific presentations that aim to not only inform but to engage the audience. In addition to scientific content, the comprehensibility and presentation of the lecture are evaluated. The winner will be chosen by a designated jury. The winner, as well as the 2nd and 3rd place runners, will receive monetary prizes.

Who Can Apply?

Inviting all young scientists (35 years old and younger) to submit abstracts for the opportunity to present in a special session at HPLC 2020-San Diego: The Separation Science Slam. The research project presented must be linked to higher education (as part of a university or research institute program, for example, Ph.D. or post-doc) and must be based on the scientist’s own results. 


April 20, 2020 is the deadline to submit abstracts to be considered in the Slam competition. The abstract must be submitted online by April 20, 2020 at HPLC2020-usa.org and you must select “Submission Type: SEPARATION SCIENCE SLAM COMPETITION” in order for the abstract to be considered. 

Slam your Science - Use Your Imagination to Wow the Audience

A maximum 6 junior scientists (not older than 35 years old with a master in science) will be selected by a jury to compete. These slammers will have 6-8 minutes on the Separation Science stage to inform, engage, and thrill the audience – and jury – with the hard-earned results of their liquid chromatography-based research project. We expect competition to be fierce, so we urge ‘slammers’ to use their imagination to make use of props, live demonstrations, assistants…anything that will ‘wow’ the crowd!
