Overview

A unique documentary on the renowned Pittsburgh Conference. Once a modest conference with only a few exhibitors, this volunteer-run organization now thrives as the world's premier chemical instrument showcase. Yet this is more than a history of Pittcon and its two sponsoring societies, the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh and the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh. This is a compilation of stories and photographs that will make you laugh out loud! The storytellers include past presidents and chairpersons, volunteers and attendees. Experience this book and you will come away with a better understanding of the organization, its goals, and its traditions—and how it serves the chemical community by providing an effective arena for the exchange of technical information.
