Annual Poster Session

2018 Annual Poster Session & Vendor Exhibition

September 19, 2018

Location to be decided.

Registration will open in summer of 2018.

2018 Program

The Washington Chromatography Discussion Group (WCDG) invites you to our annual Poster Session and Vendor Exhibition. This is a FREE event.

This is a great opportunity to share a recently presented poster, meet other DC area scientists, and learn about local science.

Best Student Posters will receive the George Guiochon Chromatography Award to attend a conference on separations science and the opportunity to present at a WCDG meeting.

We are also offering the opportunity to self-identify as “seeking opportunities” or “offering opportunities” for the purposes of job hunting, and we will mark your badge accordingly. If you are looking for new opportunities, please bring your resume and/or business cards. If you represent a company that is seeking new talent, please identify one person that would like to discuss the opportunities your company can offer to potential new employees.

We are also looking for vendors to share product information.  Please email for more information about sponsorship or the event.
