Expediting and Economizing Cleanups, this conference's theme, will be supported by the development of a strong and diverse technical program in concert with a variety of educational opportunities available to attendees. Live equipment demonstrations will augment the exhibition section which brings real-world application to the technical theory and case studies which  will be presented in the platform sessions. Focused workshops will provide attendees with the type of practical application information which will impact their job performance immediately.

The conference promises to be an exciting opportunity for all those concerned with the challenge of developing creative, cost-effective assessments and solutions that can withstand the demands of regulatory requirements.
