EAS 2019 - Enhancing Analytical Chemistry with Sustainable Solutions

November 18-20, 2019 Crowne Plaza Princeton Conference Center, Plainsboro, NJ

The theme for Eastern Analytical Symposium & Exposition (EAS) 2019 is Enhancing Analytical Chemistry with Sustainable Solutions, continuing the Going Green theme by focusing on the innovations and chemical solutions for our global sustainability. To further this theme, we are displaying our posters electronically, providing an environmentally responsible alternative to paper posters.

Our 2019 Program will feature Keynote Speaker, Dr. Susan Olesik, Dow Professor and Chair of the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department of The Ohio State University, who will speak on “Green HPLC” and enhancing our sustainable practices in analytical chemistry. A mixer will follow. Our Plenary Lecture, “Spectroscopy through the Microscope: Chemical Analysis at Liquid/Solid Interfaces”, will be delivered by the 2019 EAS Awardee for Outstanding Achievements in the Fields of Analytical Chemistry, Distinguished Professor Joel Harris of the University of Utah. Our Breakfast Lecture promises to be a fascinating talk by Deputy Chief Inspector David Bowers of the United States Postal Service, titled “Dangerous Mail: Threats and Responses Over the Years”. The Women’s Chemist Committee is sponsoring a breakfast lecture by Dr. Caroline McGregor, Merck & Co., who will speak on “From Lab to Leadership: The Journey of an Analytical Chemist.” We hope you will join us to hear these special lectures.

In addition to these focused lectures, the Program Committee has finalized a wide variety of invited and contributed sessions that span the gamut of analytical chemistry. Whether its separation science, applied spectroscopy, forensic science, chemometrics, pharmaceutical analysis, environment, food science, or cultural heritage, there are session with talks by international leaders in analytical chemistry. These include nine terrific sessions honoring our six 2019 EAS Award and three Sponsoring Organization Award winners.

For those who want to hone their expertise in various areas of analytical chemistry, the EAS offers short courses designed to help any chemist develop new skills and enhance knowledge. This year there are 39 courses on a range of different specialty areas, as well as general courses on trouble-shooting and process analysis. New for 2019, EAS has established a reduced short course registration rate for full-time college students (only available until October 15th). Please let your students know of this great opportunity!

EAS would not be EAS without our Exposition! Our exhibitors will be showcasing their latest innovations in analytical technologies, so stop by and see what’s new!

Join us at the Crowne Plaza Princeton Conference Center in Plainsboro, NJ November 18-20, 2019 to see everything that EAS has to offer. Visit our website for complete information on short courses and the technical program: www.EAS.org
