Third Symposium on
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 third time in 2022, 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.
Title: With dust all over – how to be guided by the NIR light for the quality assessment of wood-based materials
Bio sketch: Manuela Mancini is currently a PostDoc researcher at Polytechnic University of Marche in Italy. During her PhD (2014-2018), she started working on spectroscopy and more precisely on the development of an alternative low-cost system based on Near Infrared spectroscopy for the quality control of solid biofuels. In 2019, she awarded a Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowship at University of Copenhagen. The project dealt with the selection of the most appropriate use of waste wood materials using spectroscopic techniques with the aim to improve their cascade use. The two-year project was a great opportunity for gaining in-depth knowledge about the intersection of wood science, spectroscopy and multivariate data analysis. Apart enjoying science she likes hiking, squash, spending time in good company and reading books.
The SwIImS keynote is supported by The Italian Society for Near Infrared Spectroscopy – SISNIR.
