  • About the Conference

    The 17th Confocal Raman Imaging Symposium takes place from September 27 to October 1, 2021, in form of a virtual event. The positive feedback we received for last year's Virtual Raman Imaging Poster Summit, and the ongoing complications regarding travel, led us to adopt and extend the format for 2021. This year, the one-week online conference features presentations by renowned scientists, extensive poster sessions and online equipment demonstrations.

    The virtual conference provides a forum for scientific discussion to the Raman imaging community. A chat tool enables presenters and attendees to interact and ask questions.

    The oral presentations include a detailed introduction to Raman spectroscopy and microscopy as well as a selection of up-to-date research topics. All presentations are available on-demand for the duration of the event.

    The scientific posters are grouped into three categories: “Advanced Materials Analysis”, “Environmental and Geo Science” and “Life Sciences, Biomedical and Pharma Research”. All attendees are able to rate the posters and the one with the highest rating will win the WITec Poster Award along with a bluetooth speaker.

    Online equipment demonstration sessions are being offered during the conference, with WITec application scientists showing different Raman imaging technologies in action. Registration for the demo sessions is now closed.
