SciX is a meeting hosted by The Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS) that focuses on analytical chemistry and related sciences. For the third year, AES is co-organizing sessions with FACSS to include such topics as dielectrophoresis, micro- and nanofluidics, new applications of conventional electrophoresis, and nextgen electric-field driven separations. The SciX meeting will be held September 30 – October 5, 2012 in Kansas City, MO. The organizers for the joint FACSS/AES session are Christa Hestekin representing AES and Wenwan Zhong representing FACSS.
This year's session organizers are comprised of Wenwan Zhong & Shramik Sengupta (Recent advancements in electrophoretic separation), Alexandra Ros & Adrienne Minerick (Microscale Phenomena - Joint AES and FACSS Symposium), Dana Spence & Edgar D. Goluch (Microfluidics and Nanofluidics), and Christa Hestekin & Lisa Holland (Next generation electric-field driven separation). The speakers include: Michael Heien, Jing Ouyang, Arnab Ghosh, Adrienne Minerick, Brian Kirby, Zachary Gagnon, Michael Kirschbaum, Robert Rhien, Eric Furst, Alexandra Ros, David Eddington, Scott Martin, Susan Lunte, Edgar D. Goluch, Ingrid Fritch, Jamie Hestekin, Chris Harrison, and Mark A. Hayes. Sessions will be held on Monday and Tuesday (http://www.scixconference.org/index.php/program).
We invite you to come, learn and discuss the newest cutting edge work from the leaders in their fields in a dynamic cross-disciplinary environment that seeds innovation. As all of you know, FACSS (now SciX) has always fostered an environment that encourages easy access to the speakers and spirited scientific exchange.
We look forward to seeing you at the 2012 SciX Conference, September 30 - October 5 in Kansas City, MO and, perhaps, at the Annual AES Meeting, October 28 - November 2 at the Pittsburgh Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA.
Finally, with the addition of AES to the FACSS family, we invite you to join AES (http://www.aesociety.org/apply/apply_online.php). There are a number of benefits which can be found at http://www.aesociety.org/, including reduced registration fees.
