Pittcon has also developed an extensive program in the life sciences and is seeking contributions in genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, bioinformatics, neurochemistry, high throughput screening, and drug discovery.

Technical Program Chairman, Annette Wilson, commented, “We have been working for the past several years to coordinate the entire program – the Technical Program, Short Courses, and Conferee Networking – in order to give our conferees their best educational and networking experience.” She added, “In addition to requesting papers in the core scientific areas, we are especially interested in submissions related to “hot” topics and emerging trends in bioanalytical, food safety, forensics, pharmaceutical and nano-technology.”

All abstracts must be submitted through the Pittcon website. The submission deadline to be included in the first round of reviews is Monday, August 14, 2017. Abstracts received after this date will be placed on a waiting list.
