About Us

The Eastern Analytical Symposium and Exposition (EAS) is held each year to provide professional scientists and students continuing education in the analytical and allied sciences through the presentation of symposia of papers, workshops, and short courses. An exposition of apparatus and supplies allied to these sciences is held concurrently with the symposia. EAS 2020 will beĀ held on-line. For more information, explore the Virtual Symposium, Virtual Expo and Short Course menus.

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.

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.

Achievement Awards

Continuing a tradition that stretches back to 1952, we are pleased to announce the EAS Awards to be presented.

Student Awards
In addition, EAS provides undergraduate and graduate students with travel awards to offset expenses to attend the meeting each year.

Exposition

The 100+ exhibitors at EAS provide the scientist with a convenient single location to find out about new equipment, services, and technologies. Meeting and discussing a vendor’s product can make all the difference in your abilities to solve problems in the laboratory. EAS consistently provides high booth/table top traffic and the high quality leads. Participation by vendors in all aspects of EAS – booths, papers, short courses, and workshops – benefits not only the conferees, but the exhibitors as well. Exhibitors and attendees recognize that good science = quality leads = the best possible Exposition. Don’t forget to participate in all aspects of the Exposition!
