2018 CPAC Spring Meeting

2018 CPAC Spring Meeting Banner


Online Registration



The CPAC meeting (Monday, April 30, and Tuesday, May 1, 2018) will include progress reports from CPAC funded research projects and research proposals for next year’s funding. Attending this meeting would also be an excellent opportunity to experience CPAC technology and innovation as well as assess how a relationship with CPAC can to add value to your organization. Valuable aspects of the CPAC meeting include formal and informal opportunities for networking, meeting CPAC Graduate Students and getting to know the principle investigators and their research.

As a tribute to the impact that Bruce Kowalski had in founding the field of Chemometrics we plan to schedule a couple of invited industry speakers to present case studies on the value of multidisciplinary approaches to problem solving. Along with that, we will have ‘lighting’ presentations related to advances in the handling of multivariate data given by selected graduate students. This will give the graduate students a unique opportunity to meet industry leaders – and to hear some of the inside details of identifying a problem that is data rich and needs analysis, the development of the chemometric model to address the problem, real-time adjustments during beta-testing, and the process analysis enhancement since implementation. This also answers a request from industry  that it needs better trained students for the highly interdisciplinary data-driven work required to maintain their company’s research leadership.

Laboratory Tours are also available during the meeting. The meeting description and further information on the preliminary agenda and registration will be available soon on the CPAC website.


We look forward to your attendance and participation in this special event.
