The 53rd annual meeting of the Eastern Analytical Symposium will be held on November 17-19, 2014 at the Garden State Exhibit Center and hotel complex in Somerset, New Jersey. EAS provides professional scientists and students continuing education in the analytical and allied sciences through the presentation of technical papers, seminars, and short courses. In addition, an exposition of laboratory instruments, supplies, and services related to these sciences takes place concurrent with the symposium.
The technical program at EAS continuously demonstrates its excellence. With nearly 70 oral and poster sessions, the program emphasizes presentations that deal with cutting edge science and relate to real problems faced by scientists in all fields. The 2014 technical program reflects this year’s EAS theme, “The Art and Science of Analysis,” by highlighting topics of concern in today’s world such as mass spectrometry in biological applications, dried blood spot sampling in pharmaceutical and medical applications, spectroscopy of materials based on nanostructures and nanoparticles, , counterfeit drugs, environmental solutions, and food contamination and adulteration, to name a few.
We will continue to hold the plenary session on Monday afternoon at 4:30 pm in the Double Tree Ballrooms. Professor Joseph Caruso from the University of Cincinnati, the recipient of the 2014 EAS Award for Outstanding Achievements in the Fields of Analytical Chemistry, will deliver the keynote speech. Prof. Caruso is well known for his research on atomic absorption and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) for metal analyses, which have applications across many industries.
The technical program is complemented by a variety of short courses that emphasize practical and economical problem-solving topics. You can take home the learnings from the short courses and immediately apply them to your daily work. Consistent with the mission of EAS to train and educate scientists, the Short Course Program for 2014 has a broad range of course offerings in the most recent development of pharmaceutical analysis, instrumental analysis, method development and validation, new analytical technologies, and regulatory compliance. These courses are taught by a group of distinguished instructors, who are well recognized in their fields.
The Exposition at EAS provides the scientist with a convenient single location to find out about new equipment, services, and technologies. EAS consistently provides high booth traffic and high quality leads. Participation by vendors in all aspects of EAS – booths, papers, short courses, and special events – benefits not only the conferees, but the exhibitors as well. The exposition has grown by 10% compared to last year.
EAS offers an excellent chance to network with other professionals in your field as well as with classmates, and suppliers.
