The year 2017 begins a new journey for EAS with our move to the Crowne Plaza Princeton-Conference Center in Plainsboro, NJ. While we cherish the memories created by our EAS community the past 25 years in Somerset, we also heard the wishes of our exhibitors and conferees to have the entire symposium under one roof in a modern facility. It has been years in the making and we are very excited to have identified the Crowne Plaza Princeton-Conference Center as our

EAS is moving to Princeton. EAS President Justin Pennington announced that EAS 2017 will be held at the Crowne Plaza Princeton – Conference Center in Plainsboro, NJ. This facility is well suited to the size of the symposium and expo and will allow all activities to take place under one roof. We are sad to leave the venues in Somerset that have hosted EAS since the 90′s but we are excited to open a new chapter in Princeton. SAVE these

The EAS family has lost one of their own: Hercules Felder passed away this month, too soon; he was 64. We’ve all been stunned by this news. Herk was a pillar of the organization, a pioneer and, true to his first name, a force of nature. Herk had been with EAS for 35 years, serving as EAS’ first African-American president in 1994 and continued to actively support EAS even after retiring from a successful career in NJ and moving to

Tolkien in The Lord of the Rings Welcome to the 55th Eastern Analytical Symposium and Exposition (EAS). Our theme this year, “Analytical Chemistry Opens Doors,” was chosen as I mused on the varied career paths that the Governing Board members have taken. We all have

Are you interested in a challenge? Would you enjoy designing experiments and competing against other state of the art laboratories developing an analytical method to characterize an unknown sample? If so, the EAS/CoSMoS Method Development Olympics (MDO) 2016 is the challenge for you! Judges will evaluate results based on accuracy and amount of ancillary information discovered as well as the creativity of the method development approach.
