Crystal Forms CONVENTION


The investigation and optimization of crystal forms are at the forefront of industrial as well as fundamental research.

The event will bring together academic and industrial experts interested in sharing experience and discussing perspectives and new challenges regarding:

  • Recent advances in solid forms discovery
  • Synthesis and properties of crystal forms
  • Multicomponent crystal forms
  • Intellectual property issues


The convention will address not only issues at the frontier of the field, where “curiosity driven” and applied research interplay in a synergistic way, but also the practical implications in defining crystallization techniques and developing process control.
