Pittcon 2006 registration open; early bird discounts for advance registration

Pittsburgh, PA – Pittcon (The Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy) says that pre-registration is now open for Pittcon 2006 scheduled for March 12-17 in Orlando, FL.

Conferees registering by February 12, 2006 can save 50% on registration fees.

New programs and exhibition changes have been designed to add more value for the thousands of conferees and exhibitors expected to visit the annual conference.

Pittcon 2006 will present over 50 invited technical symposia on current topics including bioterrorism, nanotechnology, environmental science, informatics, forensics, food analysis, drug discovery, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and the life sciences. They will also host a symposium for the “bridging the sciences” coalition; this group represents more than 280,000 university and industry scientists from several research societies seeking federal support for research at the interface between the biomedical sciences and the physical and mathematical sciences.

“We are very excited about the quality of our technical program in 2006,” says Kevin McKaveney, Pittcon 2006 president. “Conferees will have the opportunity to hear from many notable leaders in their field, speaking on the most current issues facing the scientific community today.”

Pittcon organizers expect over 1,000 vendors to demonstrate the latest, cutting-edge instrumentation and laboratory products used across a variety of disciplines.
