News and Conferences

ICORS 2014

XXIV International Conference on Raman Spectroscopy

10-15 August 2014, Jena, Germany

The ICORS in Jena will be the place where all major developments of the broad field of Raman spectroscopy will be presented and discussed. Ranging from ultra short and ultra small techniques to applications in life sciences to geology the conference will provide a platform for in-depth scientific discussions of all major topics related to Raman spectroscopy.

SPEC 2014

SPEC 2014: Shedding New Light on Disease

17-22 August 2014, Krakow, Poland
Chair: Prof. Małgorzata BARANSKA (Jagiellonian University, Krakow)
Contact: Mrs Agnieszka Otwinowska, E-mail:

The aim of this international conference series is to bring together clinicians and scientists who have joined forces in the quest for novel biomedical applications of Infrared and Raman spectroscopy to improve patient care. Due to its unique fingerprinting capability, vibrational spectroscopy plays a significant role in histopathology, cytology, biopsy targeting, surgical targets, treatment monitoring and drug studies. This, the 8th in the series, aims to highlight further advances in state of the art and emerging biomedical applications of Vibrational Spectroscopy, while critically reviewing the challenges in the context of other emerging technologies.
