CoSMoS sponsored EAS 2016 Method Development Olympics featured session


Since 2003 CoSMoS has served the interests of the analytical community.  The focus changed annually as determined by a very diverse representative group of scientists.  The names posted under the “CoSMoS 2016 Planning Board and Committee” and the sub set “Former committee members” all volunteered their time and expertise over the years to the benefit of all of us.

A central focus over the past 5 years has been the Method Development Olympics held jointly this year with the Eastern Analytical Symposium.  A worldwide invitation is opened each year and from the many who express an interest to compete, the difficult decision to choose 3 finalists has been made for 2016.  Awards made at Eastern Analytical Symposium, Somerset, NJ on 14 November 2016:
