IDRC 2020 continues the long term format in which registrants attend morning and evening sessions, while afternoons are free to enjoy the area’s many attractions. Technical presentations are designed to provide insight into current issues for industrial users, strategies in choosing spectral engines, considerations in using standards, and a look into the future of spectroscopy. State-of-the-art equipment will be displayed by vendors and poster presentations will stimulate yet more discussion, sometimes well beyond conference hours.

Sessions and arrangements this year are particularly enhanced for students using NIRS in their work or future careers.

Come join us in Chambersburg this summer! Whether you are working in the lab or beyond the lab, your time at IDRC will be enjoyable and worthwhile!
