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 short for The Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy.

The Pittsburgh Conference is a Pennsylvania not-for-profit educational corporation that is comprised of the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh (SSP) and the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP). Pittcon’s roots started in Pittsburgh in 1950 and is managed by a committee of volunteers and a 11-person staff.

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.
