Sponsored by

PITTSBURGH, PA, June 16, 2009 -- The Pittsburgh Conference announced its annual Call for Topics for Conferee Networking Sessions for Pittcon 2010, which will be held February 28 to March 5, 2010, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. For full consideration, topics must be received by July 17, 2009. Topics may only be submitted electronically via the Conferee Networking link at www.pittcon.org. The Pittcon Conferee Networking Committee will review the submitted topics and selections will be completed by August 21, 2009. Final session topics will be posted to the Pittcon website in early September.

Conferee Networking Sessions are free to all registered attendees and provide an open forum to establish new friendships, alliances, and communications in a small, informal venue with an average of 15-18 participants in each session. These sessions provide an environment where conferees come together to discuss topics of mutual interest or solve problems specific to certain instrumentation or procedures.

Conferee Networking Sessions made its debut to the Pittcon program in 2007 with eight sessions that included topics in analytical chemistry, forensics, and research and development. In 2008, due to its overwhelming success, the sessions were expanded to 27, and new disciplines, such as environmental and LIMS were introduced to add variety and appeal to a broader audience. At Pittcon 2009, there were 35 sessions which included the most popular selections from previous years in addition to new topics in the area of bio-fuels and analytical chemistry.
