The James L. Waters Annual Symposium is a unique component of the Pittcon Technical Program. In 1989, Mr. Waters, founder of Waters Associates, Inc. and president of Waters Business Systems, Inc., proposed that the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP) offer an annual symposium exploring the origin, development, implementation, and commercialization of scientific instrumentation of established and major significance. The objective of the symposium is to recognize workers and the development and application of instrumentation by preserving the early, and in some cases, more mature history of the important contributions, as well as the cooperation between inventors, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and marketing organizations. All expenses associated with the symposium are generously funded by Mr. Waters. Administration of the symposium, including selections of the topics and speakers, is the responsibility of the SACP.
