Good Morning and welcome to Day 2 of LCGC's continuing coverage of HPLC 2010. We hope you’ve been able to take in some of the sights and sounds of Boston, Massachusetts, in addition to attending the many technical sessions and exhibitor booths at this year’s conference. If not, you still have plenty of time, as Faneuil Hall, Boston Common, and yes, HPLC 2010 and the Hynes Convention Center won’t be going anywhere any time soon. However, unfortunately, the sport that Boston is most associated with will not be played this week, as the Red Sox are out of town. But never fear: You can strike up a conversation with just about any cab driver or street vendor if you’d like to talk baseball and find out how Boston’s team is doing. They’ll be more than happy to oblige you.

As for chromatography, discussions on this topic will not be in short supply either, as today’s schedule is loaded with informative sessions delivered by the industry’s most well-known figures. Today’s docket is also full of familiar faces from the pages of LCGC, and in particular, I would recommend taking in “Multidimensional Separations I” in Ballroom C this morning at 9 am. Chaired by LCGC EAB member and industry veteran Peter Carr, this session will have presentations from frequent LCGC authors Mark Schure (“Measuring the Dimensionality of Separation Systems: A New Performance Metric for Chromatography”) and Pavel Jandera (“Gradient Optimization in two-Dimensional Comprehensive LCXLC”). Readers can also look for a nostalgic look at the field of chromatography from Dr. Carr in the August issue of LCGC, as he recounts his time in the industry and offers some amusing anecdotes from the “old days.”

In the meantime, we would also like to once again extend our personal invitation to stop by the LCGC booth (#414) any time and say hello. Not only do we want to hear your feedback on the show and LCGC, but we also have some diehard baseball fans on our staff, so you may be able to kill two birds with one stone. Enjoy the show today!
