7th International Caparica Conference on Analytical Proteomics 2021

12th – 15th July 2021 | Caparica | Portugal

Focus in precision biochemistry and precision medicine

Dear Colleagues and friends

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are delighted to welcome you to Caparica (Lisbon, Portugal), for the 6th International Congress on Analytical Proteomics (7th ICAP 2021).

The Congress will take place in Costa de Caparica the 12th – 15th July 2021.

We cordially encourage you to attend and contribute to one of the major events in 2021 on the Proteomics field.

We are confident that you will appreciate the breadth and quality of the scientific program and the city of Caparica, and look forward to seeing you in 2021 in Portugal.

Yours truly

Hotel Aldeia dos Capuchos

Be aware of cold calls from Convention Hotel Services (CHS) or from someone named Adam Max! A company called CHS (Convention Hotel Services) is calling or e-mailing attendees of conferences worldwide, claiming to work for the conference organizers and asking for credit card details to finalize the booking of accommodation. If you receive such a call or e-mail, do not give away any personal information or credit card details! None of the parties involved in the organization of ICAP 2021 is working with CHS

We look forward to seeing you soon.

With kindest regards
