International workshop PICS 2012

Chemometrics in time-resolved and imaging spectroscopy
Instrumental measurements and data analysis
3 – 4 December 2012 Lille France

The workshop is intended to give participants an overview of the challenging problems currently investigated in chemometrics and data analysis in the field of time-resolved spectroscopy and hyperspectral imaging, in a multi-disciplinary environnement. In addition, a session will be dedicated to state of the art statistical and data analysis methods.

This event is organized in the framework of an International Scientific Research Program (PICS) shared by LASIR CNRS Univ. Lille1 and CSIC Uni. Barcelona. The scientific program will consist of keynotes and invited lectures. Participants are invited to prepare a poster. There will be plenty of time for discussion and poster presentation during a dedicated session.
