COVID-19 information

Due to current pandemic situation brought by COVID-19, and the consequent growing number of countries issuing travel restrictions or visa service suspensions, after having monitored the worldwide scenario for several weeks and after internal discussions with all the parties involved, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 18th Chemometrics in Analytical Chemistry Conference to next year, 2021.

The venue won't change, so the conference will still take place in Courmayeur/Chamonix, and the period will be very likely the same planned for this year (official dates will be communicated at the soonest).
All the updates will be posted on the official conference page, but feel free to ask any questions by contacting us at

Thank you very much for your understanding in the complex situation.

Chemometrics in Analytical Chemistry Conference (CAC)

After successful European editions of the conference in Budapest 2012 and Barcelona in 2016, that gathered more than 300 attendees each, and travel to Richmond in 2014 and Halifax in 2018, we have the pleasure to invite you to the 18th Chemometrics in Analytical Chemistry Conference that will be held on 2021 in Courmayeur (Italy). Scientific sessions, social, visits and mountain activities will be organized on both sides of the Mont Blanc (4810 m).

CAC is the largest international conference dedicated to all aspects of chemometrics, data analysis and data science in analytical and applied chemistry. The conference historically attracts a diverse group of researchers from around the world.
