Belgian Chemometrics SocietyThe Chemometrics section goes by the name of Belgian Chemometrics Society (BCS), and aims at promoting Chemometrics in industry, through workshops and symposia.The BCS consists of a committee, the active members, and a mailing list, the passive members. You are very welcome to join either! Just drop a line to email@example.com
BCS workshop: Inspiring new methods, May 31, 2013, Leuven
Our previous workshops focused at presenting new developments in chemometric tools, but this one will be all about applications, and applications don't always require cutting-edge tools.
On the contrary, we'll show that knowledge of basic tools like PCA, helps recognizing opportunities you might otherwise have missed.
This point will be made by presentations of goal-driven industrial projects where such tools have inspired R&D people to come to novel solutions.
Before that, there will be general presentations, introducing tools and showing where they come in handy in the lab in general and in chromatography.
Please register on-line.
13th Scandinavian Symposium on Chemometrics, June 17-20 2013, Stockholm, Sweden
SSC is a classic in the world of chemometrics.
2014 D.L. Massart Award in Chemometrics
The BCS created this award in honour of the late professor D.L. Massart, one of the world's leading authorities in the field of chemometrics. The bi-annual D.L. Massart Award is granted to the best PhD thesis defended in the two years preceding the award ceremony that takes place at the equally bi-annual BCS symposium.
Don't hesitate, and please note that the deadline for entering the competition is March 1, 2014.
The D.L Massart award has been made possible by the financial support of: CAMO, CQ Consultancy, ExxonMobil Chemical, Infometrix, Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical Research & Development, Minitab, Novartis Pharma, Shell, Solvay, and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel
The previous DLM Award winners are:
2012: Noslen Hernández, "New statistical calibration methods for univariate, multivariate and functional data."
2010: Jens Bo Holm-Nielsen, "Process Analytical Technologies for Anaerobic Digestion Systems"
2008: José Camacho, "New Methods Based on the Projection to Latent Structures for Monitoring, Prediction and Optimization of Batch Processes"
2006: Gabriel Vivó-Truyols, "New strategies for optimisation and data treatment in HPLC"
