Good morning, and welcome to this, the opening day of Spectroscopy’s coverage from Pittcon 2010 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The staff of Spectroscopy is proud to bring readers three days of coverage from the premier event in the field of analytical chemistry and materials analysis. All of the most important sessions, awards, and events from this year’s conference will be covered here in this convenient and easy-to-read daily e-newsletter. So whether you are a conferee looking for recommendations for sessions or awards to attend, or an industry professional who could not attend the show this year and would like to stay current, these e-show dailies will keep you up-to-date on all that is happening at Pittcon 2010.

On this, the first full day of Pittcon, the science of spectroscopy will be taking center stage throughout the conference. The 2010 Pittsburgh Conference Achievement Award will be presented to Joshua J. Coon, Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Biomolecular Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (Madison, Wisconsin), on Monday morning at Pittcon 2010. The technical session lineup will also be dominated by spectroscopy-related sessions such as “Non- and Minimally-Invasive Diagnostics of Biological Systems Using Vibrational Spectroscopy” running through 11 am in Room 311D; “The State-of-the-Art Analytical Technology that Supports Safety and Security in the Future, Part I,” which is focused on the newest terahertz-based technologies and runs through 11 am in Room 207C; and “UV Raman/Surface-Enhanced Raman,” running through 11 am in Room 307B.

These promise to be some of the best spectroscopy-related technical sessions of the week, so we encourage readers to attend as many as possible. And of course, please feel free to stop by Spectroscopy’s booth 2805 any time and say hello.

We look forward to seeing you.
