CPAC Spring Meeting: May 7-9, 2012





UW Fountain

It’s that time of year again and CPAC would like to invite you to participate in our May 7-9 CPAC Spring Meeting, Seattle, WA. The Final Program Agenda will be posted to the website. You will also notice that the CPAC website will be dramatically changing in the coming weeks. Check back often to see the new CPAC web identity as it unfolds.

This meeting will begin on Monday May 7th, 2012 with a tutorial style workshop featuring the advances in NMR for process optimization and control. There will also be presentations on new wireless sensing technology. Tuesday through Wednesday at Noon will feature progress report presentations of the 2011-12 CPAC Funded Research Projects and proposals for 2012-2013 CPAC Research Funding. There are several new technical areas being presented this year that should be of general interest, including wireless sensing, terahertz spectroscopy, material science, and flow chemistry. Research related to NeSSI will be incorporated in the presentations as appropriate. The talks will be followed by interactive discussion sessions between the attendees and Principal Investigators (PI’s).

The meeting provides formal and informal opportunities for networking. CPAC Graduate Students look forward to meeting with you and talking about their research during the lunch period as a way to increase their level of exchange.
