"Since Pittcon is the big meeting for analytical chemists, we've wanted to have a bigger presence there and be able to go where the majority of our membership goes," stated Laurie Locascio of the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the DAC chair-elect.
This experimental venture, a one-year trial, is expected to be a mutually beneficial arrangement between the DAC, ACS and Pittcon.
Pittcon Conference & Expo 2007 is being held Feb. 25-March 2 in Chicago. Abstracts are being solicited for the ACS-contributed symposia and poster session through the Pittcon website. Visit www.pittcon.org/ for more information.
