NIR 2013: FOSS sponsored conference to push the boundaries of near infrared spectroscopy
Programme includes calibration training, presentations and social event with Harald Martens
FOSS is a platinum sponsor for the NIR 2013 - 16th International Conference on Near Infrared Spectroscopy 2 - 7 June 2013 - 34280 La Grande-Motte, France.
Experts in all aspects of near infrared spectroscopy will gather to explore how the already widely-used technology can be further exploited for a range of applications in food, agri and other industries. FOSS will have a stand in the Salle Exposition and will participate with a calibration training event, posters and presentations and a social event with NIR and chemometrics expert, Harald Martens.
Pre-conference calibration course
Sunday June 2nd : ‘WinISI advanced training – a case-based and hands-on workshop on calibration and discrimination’. This is a unique opportunity to receive training from chemometrics experts Dr. L. Nørgaard & M. Westerhaus.
Presentations on variable selection and Gaussian Process Regression
A new improved variable selection method for classification of collinear data: Recursive Extended Canonical Variates Analysis (rECVA), Søren B. Engelsen, Martin Andersson, Lars Nørgaard, Copenhagen Univ., Denmark / FOSS.
Gaussian Process Regression in NIR spectroscopy – a comparative chemometric study with PLS and ANN, Wangdong Ni, Rasmus Bro, Lars Nørgaard, University of Copenhagen, Denmark / FOSS.
FOSS will also present a poster: ‘A Procedure to Determine when NIR is Better than its Reference Method,’ Martin Andersson, Lars Nørgaard.
FOSS will host a social event on Monday, June 3rd, which will include guest speaker, NIR and chemometrics expert, Harald Martens.
