Pietro Cosentino wins Best Presentation Prize at CMA4CH 2008
Jun 5, 2008
The Multivariate Analysis and Chemometrics Applied to Environment and Cultural Heritage conference, CMA4CH, was held on Ventotene Island, Italy, June 1-4, 2008. This somewhat specialized conference focuses on how multivariate techniques can be used to improve understanding of the environment and cultural artifacts.
EVRI was pleased to be a sponsor of CMA4CH, and provided a copy of Solo 4.2 for the Best Presentation. The prize was won by Pietro Cosentino for “Identification of precious artefacts and stones: the sonic imprint.” The paper presents a new non-invasive technique for fingerprinting objects, such as stones and statues, by measuring their response to vibrations imposed by an external “tweeter.” Co-authors include P. Capizzi, G. Fiandaca, R. Martorana, P. Messina and I. Razo Amoroz, all of the University of Palermo.
Congratulations to Pietro and co-workers on a very interesting piece of work! We trust that they will find Solo quite useful was they go forward and test their method on new samples.
