The SMIS beamline at SOLEIL synchrotron is pleased to announce the 7th edition of its school, StatIR 7, which is dedicated to training scientists in the field of multivariate and machine learning analysis of infrared microspectroscopy data. The course is scheduled to take place from Monday 16th to Wednesday 18th October 2023 at the SOLEIL synchrotron and will be conducted in English.

 The training is limited to 20 participants.


Registration is closed (limit of seats reached).


The aim of this school is to provide attendees with hands-on training in the use of Multivariate Analysis (MVA) techniques like PCA, and Machine Learning (ML) methods such as unsupervised and supervised clustering for analyzing infrared microspectroscopy data. The course will also cover spectral preprocessing techniques used in preparation for MVA and ML. Additionally, the applications of MVA and ML techniques for analyzing hyperspectral images and maps will be taught. The training program will emphasize the use of biomedical datasets, though the methodologies learned can also be applied to data related to cultural heritage and polymer sciences. The techniques can also be applied to data obtained from Raman microspectroscopy.


The course will be done with the open-source software Quasar. Hand-on session with participant data will be held.
