About Pittcon.

The Pittsburgh Conference & Exposition.

What is Pittcon?

Pittcon is the world’s leading annual conference and exposition on laboratory science. Pittcon attracts attendees from industry, academia and government from over 90 countries worldwide.

Our mission is to sponsor and sustain educational and charitable activities for the advancement and benefit of scientific endeavor.

Pittcon’s target audience is not just “analytical chemists,” but all laboratory scientists — anyone who identifies, quantifies, analyzes or tests the chemical or biological properties of compounds or molecules, or who manages these laboratory scientists. Having grown beyond its roots in analytical chemistry and spectroscopy, Pittcon has evolved into an event that now also serves a diverse constituency encompassing life sciences, pharmaceutical discovery and QA, food safety, environmental, bioterrorism and other emerging markets.

So Why is it Called Pittcon?

Pittcon is an annual Conference and Expo organized by the Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy.

Members of the Pittsburgh Conference are selected from the memberships of the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh and the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh. The two Societies and The Pittsburgh Conference are non-profit organizations dedicated to science education. The volunteer members of the Pittsburgh Conference are supported by an 11-person staff who work at the Pittcon office in Pittsburgh.

Aren’t you glad it’s just called Pittcon!

Pittcon Professional Societies

Pittcon is made up of the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh (SSP) and the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP).

Both societies are non-profit organizations dedicated to furthering science education in the Western Pennsylvania region.
