The 11th Encontro Nacional de Cromatografia (11ENC) will be held 9–11 December 2019 at Hotel Aldeia dos Capuchos, Congress Centre, in Caparica, Portugal. Organized by NOVA School of Science and Technology, NOVA University Lisbon, 11ENC is an official conference of the Portuguese Society of Chemistry.

The official language of the conference will be English, and the conference itself will focus on pressure and electrodriven microcolumn separations and related techniques.

Attendees can expect to hear about many exciting applications and equipment developments to assist with 21st century challenges. The main conference days will include a single track of plenary lectures by invited speakers and oral presentations by young scientists, poster presentations, and an instrument vendor exhibition displaying the latest instrumental innovations.

Several posters will be selected for a three-minute flash oral presentation, targeting PhD and MSc students. Techniques covered will include: liquid and gas chromatography (LC and GC), micro-liquid chromatography, lab-on-chip, column technology, multidimensional and hyphenated techniques, sample preparation, sample handling systems, data analysis, and miniaturized and portable systems. Application fields covered include: natural products, flavours and fragrances, food and environmental, biomedical, forensic and pharmaceutical, process analysis, and energy and resource development. Particular emphasis will be directed to high-resolution separation technologies, either one-dimensional (1D) or two-dimensional (2D), using various forms of detection, including low- and high‑resolution mass spectrometry (MS), and from single to hybrid mass analyzers.

There will be five pre-conference and post-conference short courses on Saturday and Sunday, and additional courses on Wednesday after the conference, which will be of great educational value for early career scientists, students, and general newcomers to the chromatographic field. Courses will cover sample preparation methods for chromatography, MS hyphenation with LC and GC, comprehensive 2D gas chromatography (GC×GC), overview of basic high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and large-scale efficient extraction of chemical information from untargeted chemical profiling (GC–MS) data.

The conference will also features a social programme, offering opportunities to meet and live chat with national and internationally-renowned scientists and to contact research groups, research organizations, and even companies with job openings.

Researchers in all areas relevant to the meeting are invited to submit abstracts. As usual for ENC meetings, the majority of presentations will be in poster format and the scientific committee will select the oral presentations. Exhibitors and sponsors are encouraged to participate by reserving booth space and becoming sponsors.

The conference will also have exceptionally good exhibitor opportunities with an “all on one floor” concept featured in the conference layout. All meeting rooms and exhibitor spaces are on one floor, to provide optimal flow of visitors to the exhibitor booths.

The conference is located less than one hour from Lisbon Airport on the south bank of the Tagus River by the Atlantic Coast. The conference dinner is included in the registration fee and will be held on the Atlantic Coast side. Please keep visiting our website for updated information as it becomes available.

The organizers look forward to welcoming you to Caparica this December.
