infrared Imaging
and Spectroscopy

March 24 2021
Online meeting

listen to  The sound of SWIImS 2019 : Depeche Mode *The Sun And The Rainfall*

Spectro Expo has been postponed to Mar 24-26 2021! Free online meeting

General Chair – Aoife Gowen


The aim of this symposium is to bring together people working with imaging and spectroscopic data in the wavelength range 780 – 2500 nm.



The SWIImS symposium will run for the second time in 2021, as part of the SpectraExpo in parallel with Whispers and HyperMLPA. SWIImS participants will have full access to all Whispers and HyperMLPA sessions and vice versa. Proceedings will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Spectral Imaging following peer review.

People are invited to submit new research results on the following suggested topics:

–          Near infrared spectroscopy
–          Short wave infrared hyperspectral imaging
–          Predictive modelling with NIR data
–          Macroscopic SWIR reflectance or transmission imaging
–          Microscopic SWIR reflectance, transmission
            or darkfield imaging
–          NIR/SWIR Instrumental design
–          New chemometric methods for NIR data analysis

Application oriented papers are also welcome:

–          Food
–          Agriculture
–          Pharmaceutical
–          Biomedical
–          Environmental
–          Industrial


The conference was to be held at the Beurs Van Belage, Amsterdam’s most in-demand conference venue. It is located just 15 min by train from Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport, and only steps aways from the Dam and the Royal Palace.

Damrak 243, 1012 ZJ Amsterdam, The Netherlands

After carefully monitoring the health global situation, we are considering it is not safe to propose a physical meeting in January.
We eventually decided to turn the Spectro Expo to a virtual online event, open for free to the public.
