Carl Duchesne Wins Best Poster at MIA Workshop
Oct 27, 2009
The International Workshop on Multivariate Image Analysis was held September 28-29 in Valencia, Spain. We weren’t able to make it, but we were happy to sponsor the Best Poster prize, which was won by Carl Duchesne. Carl is an Assistant Professor at Université Laval, in Sainte-Foy, Quebec, CA, where he works with the Laboratoire d’observation et d’optimisation des procédés (LOOP).
With co-authors Ryan Gosselin and Denis Rodrigue, Prof. Duchesne presented “Hyperspectral Image Analysis and Applications in Polymer Processing.” The poster describes how a spectral imaging system combined with texture analysis can be used with multivariate models to predict the thermo-mechanical properties of polymers during their manufacture. The system can also be used to detect abnormal processing conditions, what we would call Multivariate Statistical Process Control (MSPC).
For his efforts Carl received a copy of our Solo+MIA software, which is our stand-alone version of PLS_Toolbox + MIA_Toolbox. We trust that Carl and his group at Laval will find it useful in their future MIA endeavors. Congratulations Carl!
