EAS Conference Preview of Spectroscopy Sessions and New Features
Justin Pennington, 2013 program chair
The Eastern Analytical Symposium (EAS) will be held this year from November 18 to 20, 2013, in Somerset, New Jersey. EAS is
the second largest conference and exposition for laboratory science in the United States dedicated to the needs of analytical
chemists and those in the allied sciences. It has been a center of innovative science and practical solutions for the analytical
community for more than 50 years. Offering high quality technical sessions, short courses, workshops, and seminars, the conference
provides professional scientists and students with continuing education as they expand their knowledge, broaden their networks,
and advance their careers. A large exposition of laboratory instruments, supplies, and services related to the science is
held concurrently with the symposia to meet all the needs of attendees.
The conference covers a broad analytical scope including spectroscopy, chromatography, mass spectrometry, microscopy, and
chemometrics, as well as a variety of applications in pharmaceuticals, forensics, conservation science, and surface analysis.
Spectroscopy is covered in many of the broader applied technical and award sessions. In addition, there are several specifically
applicable to spectroscopy, including
- Spectroscopy for Surface Science, Nano Materials, and Fiber Analysis
- Spectroscopic Applications in Biologics
- Applications of NMR Spectroscopy from Small Molecules to Large Assemblies
- Spectroscopy at Surfaces and Interfaces
- Spectroscopic Applications in Biomedical Sensing
- Structural Studies by Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy
- What's New in NIR Analysis?
- Advanced Vibration Spectroscopy: Instrumentation and Applications
- Spectroscopic Imaging for Dissolution and Pharmaceutical Development
- Applications of NMR in the Pharmaceutical Industry
- Vibrate or Rotate — Techniques for Solving Problems with Spectroscopy.
Short courses, taught by experts, emphasize practical knowledge of a variety of topics to help analysts keep current with
best practices and new techniques. Whether the need is to learn a new analytical technology, understand new regulations, explore
an entirely new analytical field, or just brush up a new concept in one's area of expertise, EAS invites attendees to take
part in one of the spectroscopy-related courses.
