1st International Plant Spectroscopy Conference – 29–30 August 2017

Umeå University, Umeå, Sweden

The aim of the conference is to bring spectroscopy to plant scientists and plant sciences to spectroscopists, to open up a communication channel and to showcase the plethora of available spectroscopic techniques and their potential in plant sciences, benefiting both fields, from fundamental to applied research, from academic to industrial applications. Session and keynote speakers are invited to represent major spectroscopic fields, with direct applications in plant sciences.

Keynote speakers:

  • Janina Kneipp / Humboldt-Universität, Berlin, DE
  • Hartwig Schulz / Julius Kühn-Institute, Quedlinburg, DE
  • Anna de Juan / University of Barcelona, ES
  • Frédéric Jamme / SOLEIL synchrotron, Paris, FR
  • Helene Rogniaux / INRA Nantes, FR
  • Lloyd Donaldson / Scion Research, NZ

Major spectroscopic fields and their direct applications in plant sciences:

  • FTIR (micro)spectroscopy
  • Raman (micro)spectroscopy
  • Synchrotron based techniques
  • Multivariate analysis techniques for spectroscopic data
  • Mass spectroscopy based techniques
  • Auto-fluorescence based techniques
