18th Confocal Raman Imaging Symposium
The 18th Confocal Raman Imaging Symposium will take place from September 26 – 28, 2022. This annual event is a great opportunity for members of the international Raman microscopy community to catch up with each other and discuss the newest developments in technology and applications. After two years of hosting virtual events due to the pandemic, we are currently planning an on-site Symposium for 2022. We very much look forward to seeing you again in person, here in Ulm.
The first two days of the Symposium will be held in the Stadthaus in the city center, right next to the famous Ulm Minster. Renowned scientists will present their research in oral presentations covering various fields of application. During the breaks and poster sessions, there will be plenty of time to share impressions of the presented Raman applications and interact with colleagues from around the world.
On the third day of the event, we invite you to WITec headquarters and our recently expanded conference area and demo labs that offer the ideal environment for in-depth discussions with both WITec team members and conference participants. Our WITec application scientists will demonstrate different Raman imaging technologies in action.
For synopses of previous conferences, please visit the review section.
Registration is open to all scientists from academia and industry who are interested in or work with confocal Raman imaging. Researchers from all areas of application are cordially invited to submit an abstract in order to present their work.
