The Pittsburgh Conference has announced the addition of four special symposia to the technical programme for Pittcon 2009. Two of the symposia will be presented by the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS) and two by the Japan Society for Analytical Chemistry and Japan Analytical Instruments Manufacturers' Association (JAIMA).

The session titled, "SAS Atomic Spectroscopy Symposium Developments in Atomic Spectroscopy - All in the Family or Sibling Rivalry" will address current topics in the field of atomic spectroscopy. SAS' second session will examine the techniques of near- and mid-infrared Raman spectroscopy and what is to be expected from these techniques over the next 5–10 years.

Both of the JAIMA sessions will discuss nanotechnology. The first will look at the state-of-the-art analytical instruments both with and for nanotechnology. For the second session the application of the research of nanotechnology using the state-of-the-art analytical instruments in electron microscopy and spectroscopy such as multi-elemental STEM tomography and display type analyser for direct observation of 3D atomic and electronic structures will be introduced.
