Aim and content

The “International School of Chemometrics (ISC) – Challenges” is an advanced PhD course run between the University of the Basque Country (Spain) and the University of Copenhagen (Denmark). It is a three-week school specifically aimed at people having acquired some basic understanding of chemometrics. Advanced data analysis methods will be offered at practitioner level.

“ISC – Challenges” is addressed to PhD students/post-docs, associate professors, etc. who want to acquire further knowledge on advanced multivariate data analysis from different disciplines (Chemistry, Physics, Food Science, Biology, Geology, Environmental Sciences, etc.). “ISC – Challenges” also addresses companies or research laboratories who want to implement advanced multivariate data analysis in their daily research environment.

ISC - Challenges aims at being a platform for:

- Learning advanced data analysis methods. ISC – Challenges is specifically designed for researchers who want to acquire extra knowledge on multivariate data analysis and adapt it in their routine work.

- Sharing knowledge and interchange of ideas between students covering different scientific backgrounds. One of the key points of the course is the interaction between the students and troubleshooting - always within the framework of scientific data analysis and performance.

- Meeting world-wide recognized experts of Multivariate Data Analysis in an open discussion forum environment. ISC - Challenges will count with teachers that are well-recognized experts on chemometrics and multivariate data analysis in their respective fields.

This, at the same time, will offer the possibility of opening new collaborative frameworks between students and teachers. The students enrolling will have the opportunity of choosing the seminars that they consider most relevant, without the obligation of attending a minimum amount of seminars.

Seminars, dates, ECTS and teachers are as follows:

- Multiblock analysis / Data Fusion: 5 - 6 November 2020. 1 ECTS. Federico Marini.
- Non-linear modelling: 11 - 12 November 2020. 1 ECTS. Rasmus Bro.
- Sparse modelling: 9 - 10 November 2020. 1 ECTS. Morten A. Rasmussen.
- Multivariate Error: 2 - 4 November 2020. 1 ECTS. Ricard Boqué.
- GLUE, How not to make Chemometrics: 13 November 2020. No ECTS. José Manuel Amigo.
- Hyperspectral Image Analysis: 16 - 20 November 2020. 2 ECTS. José Manuel Amigo.
- Multiway Analysis: 16 - 20 November 2020. 2 ECTS. Rasmus Bro.

Learning outcome
The intended learning outcomes are divided into two categories:

1) Individual learning outcomes: the main target for each individual seminar is to learn the basis of one data analysis method focused on several proposed examples. The students have to be able to apply the acquired knowledge to any problem related to their own research.

2) Global learning outcomes: Students attending all the seminars will, at the end of the course, be able to understand the structure of a vast amount of data structures and also to understand the problems derived from the data. Moreover, they will be independent in the application of solutions to their problems in a dedicated manner.

It is possible to register for each seminar sepately. The total amount of ECTS depends on the seminars registered for, and varies between 1 and 6 ECTS.

The course is connected to the International School of Chemometrics taking place at the University of the Basque Country in Spain. For more information about the Spanish part of the course, please contact José Manuel Amigo: josemanuel.amigo@ehu.eus.

You do not have to take part in both the Danish and the Spanish part of the course, but you can do this if you wish so.

The price for participating in the Danish course is as follows:

Academia: DKK 800 per ECTS
Industry: DKK 2000 per ECTS

Payment must be completed before the course starts. Information on the method of payment will be provided after confirmation of registration.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation it will also be possible to follow the course through live streaming. However, this will not give you any ECTS. The price for streaming the whole course is DKK 2000.
