21st International Symposium on Industrial Crystallization

8. - 11. September 2020 Potsdam near Berlin Teaserbild

The 21st International Symposium on Crystallization will take place from 8 to 11 September 2020 in Potsdam, Germany.

Crystallization occurs in many natural physical, biological, and chemical systems, and is exploited in numerous applications, ranging from novel environmental and purification technologies to the production of bulk and fine chemicals, as agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food ingredients and pigments.

Active research is done on a broad range of subjects from fundamentals to industrial applications resulting in new findings, innovative processes and products.

The ISIC (International Symposium on Industrial Crystallization) meetings, taking place every three years, aim to provide a broad overview of the current science and technology of crystallization and to bring together scientists and engineers of various disciplines, both academic and industrial, from all over the world to meet and exchange ideas.

The symposium, initiated by Jaroslav Nývlt in 1960, is organized under the auspices of the EFCE's Working Party on Crystallization since 1978 and has become the premier international conference in the field of industrial crystallization.
