Sixth Annual Eigenvector University Europe
|Eigenvector Research, Inc. is pleased to offer the Sixth Annual EigenU Europe. This year we are headed to Montpellier, FRANCE where we will be staying at the beautiful Marriott Courtyard.
The 2016 edition of EigenU Europe will offer our Basic Chemometrics series plus three additiional topics including Clustering and Classification, Variable Selection and Intro to Multi-way Analysis.
Complete information about the course can be found by following the links below.
Beginning/Intermediate Chemometrics is aimed at engineers, chemists and other scientists who want to be able to analyze their own laboratory or process data, develop their own data models or develop instruments that produce analytical data. It is especially well suited for those with an interest in process analytical technology (PAT) in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and process industries. The course serves individuals with a need for exploratory data analysis, development of predictive models such as analytical instrument calibrations, soft sensor models, multivariate statistical process control (MSPC), fault detection and sample classification. No prior knowledge is required for this course, although some knowledge of basic statistics and elementary linear algebra is useful.
Beginning/Intermediate Chemometrics will cover the fundamentals of many commonly used chemometric methods such as principal component analysis (PCA) and partial least squares (PLS) regression. Emphasis will be on applying these techniques in the chemical process and laboratory environment for pattern recognition, instrument calibration, and sample classification. The class begins with a brief review of linear algebra and moves quickly into PCA and PLS. Sample clustering and classification methods and variable selection will be covered. The course concludes with a section on multi-way analysis with applications in GC-MS, Excitation Emission Fluorescence and Batch Process Monitoring.
Participants must bring their own laptops with current versions of Solo or PLS_Toolbox (and MATLAB) installed. Demo copies will work just fine. Users with Eigenvector accounts can download free demos. If you don't have an account, start by creating one. If you cannot provide your own comptuer, please contact us and we will arrange one for you.
The course will be led by PLS_Toolbox creator and Eigenvector co-founder Barry M. Wise along with Eigenvector Associate Professor Rasmus Bro. Dr. Wise holds a doctorate in chemical engineering and has experience in a wide variety of applications spanning chemical process monitoring, modeling and analytical instrument development. He has extensive teaching experience, having presented over 100 chemometrics courses. Each spring Wise organizes and teaches at Eigenvector University, the most comprehensive offering of chemometrics classes in the world. Professor Rasmus Bro leads the Chemometrics Group at the University of Copenhagen. He has authored over 100 papers in the field of chemometrics and is receipient of the EAS Award for Achievements in Chemometrics and the Herman Wold medal.
The price schedule for Basic/Intermediate Chemometrics is shown below. Prices include instruction, course materials, computer use, lunch and coffee breaks.
To get the Early Registration rate, payment must be received on or before September 16, 2016.
Note: payment must be received on or before September 16, 2016, in order to get the discounted Early Registration price. If payment for Early Registration is not received by September 16, we will re-invoice you at the Regular Registration rate. Acceptable forms of payment include MasterCard, VISA, American Express, and checks drawn on a US bank. Wire transfers can also be arranged.
Academic discount: University students and faculty are eligible for the academic rate. Verification of University affiliation is required by providing valid university mailing and e-mail address. Due to the limited class size, academic participation will initially be limited to 10 seats. After these seats are full, students will be placed on a waiting list and will be notified if additional seats become available.
PLS_Toolbox discount: All attendees can purchase PLS_Toolbox for MATLAB or Solo software for $200 off the current industrial rate as part of the course. (Discount does not apply to Academic licenses.)
To register, login to your Eigenvector account, or create an account, then select the class you would like to attend. You can pay directly with your MasterCard, VISA or American Express using our secure credit card processing, or ask to be invoiced.
