Registration is now open for the inaugural Particle Summit, an exciting new event that provides a forum for users of particle characterization technology and equipment to learn more and to connect with one another.

Registration opens for inaugural Particle Summit

Cambridge, MA | Posted on July 9th, 2010

Sponsored by Malvern Instruments, the Particle Summit takes place on October 20-21, 2010 at the Charles Hotel, Cambridge MA, near Boston. It is intended for anyone wishing to expand their knowledge in the fields of particle and molecular characterization and promises an information-rich and practical program. As well as two days of presentations and case studies given by a host of experts, an optional pre-conference workshop on Oct 19 will cover the basic principles of particle characterization.

The fifteen speakers are drawn from industry and academia, and also include specialists from Malvern. They include: Dr James Adair, Pennsylvania State University; Dr Danny Chou, Genzyme; Mr Bill Kopesky, Particle Technology Labs (PTL); Dr Martin Muschol, University of South Florida; Dr Kevin Powers, Particle Engineering Research Center, University of Florida; Dr Paul Sojka, Purdue University; and Dr Larry Weiss, Cleanwell Company. Dr Neil Lewis, Chief Technology Officer at Malvern Instruments, will give the keynote address on ‘New Particle Characterization Challenges - Physico-Chemical Measurement Needs for Emerging Industries'.

The pre-conference workshop, which will provide instruction in the basic principles of particle characterization, is recommended for anyone relatively new to the field, or who would like a refresher on the core topics being addressed in the conference.

In addition, there will be multiple opportunities to network with fellow course attendees, presenters, and Malvern personnel during the course of the conference, as well as a gala dinner at the prestigious Museum of Science Boston.
