HORIBA Scientific and UCI host two-day RamanFest in late June 2020

Feb. 13, 2020
The focus of this annual International event is on the latest advances in applied Raman spectroscopy.

Raman spectroscopy systems company HORIBA Scientific is again sponsoring RamanFest, which this year will be held at the University of California, Irvine on June 29-30, 2020. It is being held in association with the Advanced Power and Energy Program (APEP) at the UCI Henry Samueli School of Engineering.

The RamanFest conference covers the current state of advanced applied Raman spectroscopy through presentations and discussions from today's leaders in this field, from both academia and industry. RamanFest is a great event for collaboration and networking. Keynote lectures will be presented by internationally renowned scientists. There will also be accompanying poster sessions throughout the day to encourage discussion on the latest capabilities of Raman spectroscopy

Andrew Whitley of HORIBA Scientific will co-chair the event with Iryna Zenyuk, assistant professor - Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, as well as associate director of the National Fuel Cell Research Center at UCI, and Vince McDonell, director - UCICL (UCI Combustion Laboratory).

Confirmed speakers contributing to this event include many highly regarded luminaries in the field.

The broad range of topics will include discussions, not only on general topics such as past, present and future Raman Spectroscopy developments and applications.

“Over the last 8 years, RamanFest has established itself as the conference to discover the latest breakthroughs in applied Raman spectroscopy,” said Andrew Whitley, VP sales and business development at HORIBA Scientific. “We are also proud of the many research collaborations and friendships that have started at this meeting. RamanFest is a great networking opportunity.”
