EigenU Post-mortem and Thanks!
May 12, 2007
Well, we made it through another EigenU: 6 days, 14 classes and 35 students. Plus, a poster session, a PLS_Toolbox User Group Meeting and a workshop group dinner. Thanks to everybody that came! We hope you enjoy using your new skills, and that they enhance your productivity, aid you in the discovery process, and improve the quality of the products you are involved with. Try to start working with your data as soon as possible. If you do that, you’ll have a new skill that will serve you well the rest of your professional life.
We’d also like to thank the WAC for their hospitality and attention to detail. We really enjoyed the lunches, receptions and dinner. Thanks to Rick Cardona for making the arrangements, and Joshua, James, Danny, Douglas, Kevin and everybody else who took care of us all week.
Next year’s EigenU is tentatively scheduled for April 27-May 2, 2008. We plan to offer a couple new courses, including one in Robust Methods (PLS_Toolbox and Solo include robust PCA and PLS). Until then, you can find us teaching courses at the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies (FACSS) conference and Eastern Analytical Symposium (EAS).
Thanks again to everybody that came. As usual, we learned a lot from you too. And thanks for testing the next version of PLS_Toolbox. You’ll see that out soon, and thanks to you, it’ll be better than ever!
See you next year, if not before.
