Message from the President of the Pittsburgh Conference/ Pittcon 2003:
A hearty Welcome! We are “The Pittsburgh Conference”; we organize and orchestrate the world’s largest and most important Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy and the allied sciences. We are “Bringing Together the Elements of Science” at the upcoming Conference (Pittcon 2003) on March 9-14, 2003 at the Orange County Convention Center in beautiful Orlando, Florida, USA. The Conference is a meeting of like-minded people and companies who are striving to solve scientific problems related to energy and the environment, agriculture and foods, health and pharmaceuticals, and other concepts and products to improve the quality of life accessible by societies around the world. The Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh (SSP), and the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP), together, own and operate the Pittsburgh Conference as a Pennsylvania “not-for-profit” Corporation. What attracts more than 150 people like me to serve the Pittsburgh Conference as a lifetime volunteer? We have an opportunity, through the Conference, to make a real difference in Science Education---to make Science accessible to innumerable kids and adults across the United States. Proceeds from the Conference are used to support science education at the Conference and through the founding Societies; they provide funding for scholarships, equipment grants, continuing education, technical programs, and a variety of other science-education related activities in SW Pennsylvania, the Conference host states, and throughout the U.S. Please explore or web site ( ) or call 412-825-3220 to learn more

Call for Exhibitors:

Dear Colleague:

The Pittsburgh Conference will be “Bringing Together the Elements of Science” at our annual meeting, Pittcon 2003, at the beautiful Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, March 9-14 (Exposition dates: March 10-13).

Your organization may have either recently exhibited or explored options to exhibit with the Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to act now to reserve booth space and/or seminar space to exhibit with us in 2003.

Here are just a few of the many reasons why you should exhibit at Pittcon 2003:
• Pittcon attracts the largest group of laboratory scientists assembled together anywhere in the world.
• Vendor exhibitors choose to unveil their most innovative and newest offerings at Pittcon. They also participate in our New Product Forum and Poster Sessions on Sunday before the show, and media opportunities throughout the week.
• Buyers know that Pittcon is the only venue where they can see everything at once and compare various options for fulfilling their laboratory and technical needs.
• Your competition wouldn’t miss a single chance to exhibit with the Pittsburgh Conference, and neither should you.

Even after 54 years, the Pittsburgh Conference organization is undergoing continuous renewal to identify important trends in the measurement and analytical sciences, transcending old boundaries between chemistry, biology and traditional disciplines. Yet, we continue to nurture the fundamental disciplines that underlie our traditional sciences and emerging new fields of scientific endeavor. For example, we are partnering with The LIMS Institute to build a show-within-a-show, “Laboratory Informatics”. Our Marketing firm, the Coalesce Corporation, and Cambridge Healthtech Institute (CHI - a program resource organization) are helping Pittcon to develop a Technical Program and Exposition that includes the most important new developments in the Life Sciences.

Watch for our mailing of the Pittsburgh Conference “Update” this month for Conference plans to-date; it includes a sketch of our Technical Program (especially invited symposia), the Tentative Agenda of Short Courses, and our registered Exhibitors.

Email or call 800-825-3221x205 to reserve your space today. And remember to visit our website at for continuous Pittcon 2003 updates.

Sincerely yours,

Mildred B. Perry, President
The Pittsburgh Conference
