Online conference offers the Raman community a forum for scientific exchange
August 11th, 2020
WITec GmbH, technology leader in Raman microscopy, is hosting its first Virtual Raman Imaging Poster Summit from September 28th to October 2nd, 2020.
This online conference offers the worldwide Raman community the chance to present and discuss their work from the convenience of their homes or home laboratories. Session topics will include: Life Sciences, Biomedical and Pharma Research, Advanced Materials Analysis, Environmental and Geosciences, and Correlative Imaging Applications.
The Virtual Raman Imaging Poster Summit takes the place of the Confocal Raman Imaging Symposium in the calendar of premiere events for chemical imaging and spectroscopy. The annual Symposium is acclaimed for both the diversity of the disciplines represented in its presentations, and its sociable atmosphere. The Virtual Raman Imaging Poster Summit will preserve both of these qualities while moving to a distributed format in response to the ongoing pandemic.
As expressed by Harald Fischer, Marketing Director at WITec, “We can’t wait to see what the Raman community has been up to. Even in these uncertain times, scientific progress continues and people are understandably excited about their latest discoveries. The Virtual Raman Imaging Poster Summit is in 2020 the best platform for sharing that excitement.”
Participants will be able to discuss the research presented through an online chat tool and send questions directly to the poster authors. To conclude the event, everyone will have the chance to vote for their favorite in the Best Poster Award competition. The deadline to submit an abstract for the conference is September 15th, 2020.
