Chemometrics Without Equations: Introduction

 Price Conferee $450; Student $50; Non-Conferee $550
Date: October 9 / 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Instructors: Barry Wise and Neal Gallagher, Eigenvector Research

Chemometrics without Equations concentrates on two areas of chemometrics: 1) exploratory data analysis and pattern recognition, and 2) regression. Participants will learn to safely apply techniques such as Principal Components Analysis (PCA), Principal Components Regression (PCR), and Partial Least Squares (PLS) Regression. Examples will include problems drawn from process monitoring and quality control, predicting product properties, and others. The target audience includes those who collect and/or manage large amounts of data that is multivariate in nature. This includes bench chemists, process engineers, and managers who would like to extract the maximum information possible from their measurements.
