ISA Announces the 51st ISA Analysis Symposium
Research Triangle Park, NC (9 March 2006) - The 51st annual ISA Analysis Symposium, sponsored by the ISA Analysis Division, will be held 1-6 April 2006 in Anaheim, California.
The symposium covers all aspects of process composition analysis including analyzer technologies such as chromatography, spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, chemical analysis, physical analysis methods, sample systems, and gas and liquid sensors and detectors. The symposium also covers the practical use of these technologies and explores maintenance, systems integration, safety and networking and communications.
This year's event carries a theme of "Setting the Standard for Process and Environmental Analytical Solutions." Speakers and attendees from all over the world are drawn to the event each year to acquire the latest analytical science information, and to enjoy the informal discussion opportunities and social gatherings.
The symposium features technical papers, presentations and panel discussions. A popular banquet with a noted industry speaker, several business meetings and meetings of various standards committees are also included. Vendors host a showcase of their products and services during the event.
"This event is recognized as an outstanding forum for discussion of new and innovative process and other analytical techniques, developments, and applications," said symposium chair John Querido.
