Technical Program

For over 50 years, the Technical Program of EAS has provided cutting-edge information for the analyst with research presentations on practical solutions to problems and discussions of novel technologies. The symposium now typically contains over 450 papers on a wide variety of subjects, from pharmaceutical analysis to art conservation, analytical chemistry education, food analysis, chemometrics, sample preparation, process analysis, forensic analysis, surface analysis, validation, and regulatory topics. The program emphasizes the practical use of a wide swath of technologies (e.g., CE, GC, LC, near-IR, mid-IR, Raman spectroscopy, NMR, mass spectrometry, spectroscopy, microscopy, and sensors) in solving real-life problems faced by scientists in their daily work. Check back in mid-June for the on-line program.

Short Courses

EAS Short Courses emphasize practical and economical problem solving topics which will include material that you can take home and immediately apply to your daily work. We have kept many of the ‘most requested’ courses from last year, and this year we have added new courses that are timely and useful to the practicing analyst. The courses are taught by a group of distinguished instructors, who are well recognized in their fields.


2017 Short Courses will be offered from Sunday, November 12 throughWednesday, November 15, 2017 from 8:30am – 5:00pm at our new location – the Crowne Plaza Princeton – Conference Center in Plainsboro, NJ.  If you would like to submit a proposal to present a short course  - please send course description to by February 1, 2017.

EAS short courses are designed to help the practicing analyst develop new skills and enhance knowledge. Taught by experts, the short courses emphasize practical knowledge of a variety of important topics to help one keep current with best practices and new techniques. Whether you want to learn of a new analytical technology, understand new regulations, explore a new analytical field, or just brush up a new concept in your area of expertise, there is a course for you.

EAS half-day, one-day and two-day short courses emphasize:

  • A wide range of topics
  • Interactive discussions
  • Case studies for illustration
  • Practical and problem solving tips

Located in the heart of the greater Northeast, EAS short courses are a convenient way to gain knowledge in the comfortable setting of a major conference at a reasonable price. Registration for the meeting is required.
