The submitted topics will be reviewed and selections will be completed by early September 2012. Final session topics will be posted to the website in October.
Conferee Networking Sessions, free to all registered attendees, provide an informal venue for a small group of 15 to 25 participants to openly discuss topics of mutual interest or solve problems specific to certain instrumentation or procedures.
There will be a total of 28 different facilitated sessions during Conference week; 4 on Sunday, and 8 each day, Monday through Wednesday. Any topic within chemicals, analytical chemistry, analytical instrumentation, laws and regulations, and environmental issues are welcome. In particular, Pittcon 2012 has a special interest in any topics relating to energy and shale gas.
