Welcome to the inaugural edition of LCGC's newest offering, the 2006 Pittcon Meeting Report from Orlando, Florida. In our ongoing effort to bring the separations community the most useful and pertinent information possible in as many different media as possible, we are excited to bring you a day-by-day reporting of the events, awards, and technical sessions held this week at the industry's premiere conference, Pittcon.

As you scroll down and look over the page, you will notice a variety of interesting features. Recommended sessions from LCGC columnists and industry veterans John Dolan and John Hinshaw, covering the LC and GC sides of the aisle, respectively, highlight the report, while technical session reports from staff editors covering the hottest topics in separation science fill readers in on what is being discussed and what breakthroughs are currently making news here in Orlando. With in-depth discussions of news-making scientists in our Awards section rounding out the issue, we believe this meeting report is the most valuable source of information on Pittcon 2006 available, whether you are a scientist, vendor, or casual reader.

And don't forget to peruse our navigation bar on the lefthand side of the page, where you will find useful links to anything you might need while here in Orlando: from the technical schedule, to the exhibitor list, to a comprehensive list of activities being held here this week at Pittcon 2006, we think you will agree that we have truly created an all-in-one information source for this conference.

As always, we also have a link at the bottom of the page for your feedback. Please let us know what you think of this publication, and let us know how we can improve it in the future. We are only as good as our readers say we are, and it is our aim to make this meeting report even better as we plan future conference coverage.

Thank you and enjoy the show!
