Pittcon 2010

Pittcon 2010

The latest innovations in separation science will be presented at Pittcon 2010 to be held from 28 February–5 March 2010 at the Orange County Convention Centre in Orlando, Florida, USA.

Thousands of scientists, speakers and laboratory product suppliers from more than 100 countries will attend the comprehensive annual conference and exposition on laboratory science.

The technical programme includes a diverse array of invited symposia, contributed oral presentations, poster sessions, workshops and award symposia recognizing the year's most significant scientific achievements. Novel applications of virtually all forms of chromatography and hyphenated mass spectrometry techniques will be presented across a variety of application areas, including life science, pharmaceutical, environmental, food science, forensics and others.

The Pittcon 2010 short course programme provides valuable educational opportunities for scientists at all levels. There are many short courses involving chromatographic techniques, from sample preparation and column selection to the most sophisticated LC–MS techniques.

Dr Alan G. Marshall, Kasha Professor of chemistry and biochemistry, Florida State University and Director of the Ion Cyclotron Resonance Programme at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, will present the plenary lecture on The Role of High-End Instrumentation. The lecture will focus on how high-end analytical instrumentation has both advanced state-of-the-art applications and also stimulated higher performance of much more widely available lower-end instrumentation.

Internationally known chromatographers and separation scientists are always among the many Pittcon award recipients for technical achievements. One of the leading pioneers in gas chromatography, Dr Walter Jennings, will be presented with the prestigious Pittcon Heritage Award in recognition of his accomplishments in his 35 year career. Dr Lane C. Sander, Leader of the Organic Chemical Metrology Group within the Analytical Chemistry Division, NIST, will be presented with the Dal Nogare Award for excellence in chromatography and his achievements in improving the chemical metrology in environmental, clinical and food science disciplines. The Analytical Chemistry Award for Young Investigators in Separation Science will be presented to Craig A. Aspinwall of the University of Arizona for his advances in real time on-line monitoring of neurotransmitters and hormones.

On the exposition floor, conferees will have the opportunity to visit nearly 1000 exhibiting companies to see what's new in laboratory equipment, evaluate, talk to the technical experts one-on-one and see first hand the latest developments in laboratory instrumentation and applications. The exposition includes leading developers of HPLC, ICP, GC, MS, FTIR and other instruments as well as green chemistry solutions, informatics and analytical software, laboratory automation and general laboratory equipment, chemicals and supplies.

Pittcon 2010 offers more than 40 conferee networking sessions. These informal 2-hour meetings provide an opportunity for conferees to participate in face-to-face scientific discussions and collaborate with colleagues on specific topics of interest.

Pittcon 2010 is also hosting an evening networking event called, Pittcon Night at Universal Studios, where all Pittcon attendees can enjoy the sights and sounds of one of the most popular entertainment parks in the US.

The Pittcon 2010 website provides information for international conferees and includes important links to information and resources related to travelling to and visiting Florida, obtaining Visas and dealing with US Customs authority.
