online registratie

This 2-day course focuses on theoretical and especially practical aspects of applying multivariate data analysis to vibrational spectra (quantitative and explorative). You can bring your own laptop for the practical sessions.

Subjects to be handled:
- sample selection and preparation for quantitative analysis
- scanning conditions and accessories
- explorative data analysis (Principal Component Analysis)
- spectrum pre-processing
- multivariate regression methods like CLS, ILS, MCR, PCA, PCR and PLS
- model validation
- outlier detection

The course aims for people that collect large data sets (e.g. imaging) and those planning to perform quantitative measurements in (N)IR and/or Raman. The course consists of interactive lectures and real time demonstrations. The course takes 2 days (09.00 - 12.00 and 13.00 - 16.00 h) and will be held at Utrecht University Science Park ("De Uithof").
The registration fee for this course is € 1050,- (ex. VAT).
The fee includes all tuition, course lecture notes, lunch and refreshments.
PhD students receive a reduction of 20% on the course fee. The number of participants per course is limited. Course language contingent on the participants; course material in English.
