Symposium

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The 2016 ANACHEM / SAS Symposium will be held on Thursday, November 3rd, 2016 at Burton Manor (www.burtonmanor.net) in Livonia, MI. The site is easily accessible from interstate highway I-96.  A plenary lecture will be given by Dr. Jonathan Sweedler, the 2015 recipient of the ANACHEM Award.  An award session with invited speakers will be presented in his honor. This year’s symposium will include three oral sessions devoted to research at the academic institutions in our region.  NEW this year, two oral sessions for “industrial research” are being reintroduced as an integral part of the symposium; the sessions are described in more detail below.  An instrument exhibit, a poster session, and two educational workshops are also important parts of this annual symposium on chemical analysis. A preliminary outline is included below. Register online in advance for a discounted rate.

NEW ORAL SESSIONS in 2016 − Chemical Analysis for Industry and Public Service
New oral sessions in the morning and afternoon will highlight the outstanding chemical analysis work that is being done by industrial laboratories and government / public service agencies in our area. You are invited and encouraged to submit papers for those sessions. Papers that describe new methods of chemical analysis or that describe the application of existing methods to address problems of interest to industrial and public service laboratories are welcome.  The “industrial research” session organizers are Paul Harvath (General Motors), John Moote (General Motors), and Jerry Singh (RTI Laboratories). A proposed title and abstract must be submitted online for consideration by Friday, Oct. 7th, 2016.

ACADEMIC RESEARCH ORAL SESSIONS
Graduate students, principle investigators, undergraduate students, and other academic researchers are encouraged to participate in one of three Academic Research oral sessions. When arranging sessions, preference will be given to graduate students and principle investigators. There is a $100 cash award for the best graduate student presentation in each oral session. A proposed title and abstract must be submitted online for consideration by Friday, Oct. 7th, 2016. Abstract submitters are invited to indicate their preferred session on the online abstract submission form. Session organizers will consider these preferences but may not be able to accommodate all submitters.

POSTER SESSION
All Symposium attendees, including graduate and undergraduate students, are invited to participate in the poster session. There is a $100 cash award for the best graduate student poster presentation and another $100 cash award for the best undergraduate student poster presentation. Whether you are student or an established chemist, please plan to share your research with us. A proposed title and abstract must be submitted online for consideration by Friday, Oct. 7th, 2016.

EXHIBITORS
Exhibitors, we value your participation! The exhibit of instrumentation and chemical analysis aids is an essential part of the ANACHEM / SAS Symposium. Please reserve exhibit space online or contact our Exhibits Director, Michael Iglehart, for more information (vendorregistration@ANACHEM.org).
