Message from the Program Chair

Chuck Gardner, Ph.D.
Pittcon 2016 Program Chairman

Plans for the Pittcon 2016 Technical Program have already begun. As Chair of the 2016 Program Committee, I invite you to start planning now for next year’s Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. We are currently accepting proposals for Symposia, Workshops, and Organized Contributed Sessions.

All submissions are to be submitted electronically: submit your proposal now. Select “2016 Proposal Suggestions” under the Technical Program tab.

The timeline for review of the submitted proposals is rather tight, so in order for the organizers to have enough time to arrange the sessions, the Program Committee will review all suggestions in late April 2015. Therefore, the deadline for proposal submission will be April 17, 2015 – please note the deadline-it’s not far away!

Proposals for symposia are being sought in all areas of analytical chemistry and applied spectroscopy. In addition to the classical analytical and spectroscopic topics, areas such as bioanalytical chemistry, nanotechnology, environmental analysis, food analysis, forensics, art conservation, education, energy research and pharmaceutical analysis are welcomed. Pittcon has developed an extensive program in the life sciences and is seeking contributions in genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, bioinformatics, high throughput screening, and drug discovery.

In 2016 there will be a continued emphasis on program quality particularly in the area of poster presentations which continue to grow, and there will be fewer oral contributed sessions. We have been working for the past several years to make the whole program experience – the Technical Program, Short Courses, and Conferee Networking-as streamlined as possible in order to give conferees their best educational and networking experience. Suggestions are always welcome; drop us a line if there is a way we can better serve you as a conferee.

The general Call for Papers will be sent out in June, and the deadline for contributed oral and poster abstracts will be in mid-August. As always, abstracts must be submitted electronically via the Pittcon website in order to be considered for the 2016 Technical Program. Please feel free to contact the Program Committee if you have any comments or questions about the 2016 Technical Program. We can be reached by e-mail at; or by telephone at (800) 825-3221 or (412) 825-3220, Ext.219.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions and contributions to Pittcon 2016.

Chuck Gardner, Ph.D.
Pittcon 2016 Program Chairman
