The mission of The Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy, Inc. is to sponsor and sustain educational and charitable activities for the advancement and benefit of scientific endeavor.
Pittcon is the world's annual premier Conference and Exposition on laboratory science. It is organized by The Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy, a Pennsylvania not-for-profit educational corporation which is comprised of the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh (SSP) and the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP).
Pittcon attracts nearly 20,000 attendees from industry, academia and government from 90 countries worldwide and is managed by a committee of volunteers and a 10-person staff. Proceeds from Pittcon fund science education and outreach at all levels, kindergarten through adult.
Pittcon donates more than a million dollars a year to provide financial and administrative support for various science outreach activities including; science equipment grants, research grants, scholarships and internships for students, awards to teachers and professors, and grants to public science centers, libraries and museums.
