International School of Chemometrics 2024 – INTERMEDIATE – Intermediate Topics on Chemometrics. DoE, Variable Selection Methods, Multivariate Curve Resolution

May 27 - May 31

Aim and content

The “International School of Chemometrics (ISC) – 2024” is a four-week PhD school specifically aimed at people having acquired some basic understanding of chemometrics. ISC will be offered at practitioner level.

“ISC-2024” 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 also addresses companies or research laboratories who want to implement advanced multivariate data analysis in their daily research environment.

ISC aims at being a platform for:

– Learning data analysis methods. ISC 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 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 and dates:
Each seminar is independent and the registration is individual. The students can choose to attend the seminars which they consider more relevant for their research. There is no minimum of seminars that the student must attend.

1 – PROGRAMMING (José Manuel Amigo, Sergey Kucheryavskyi and Anders Krogh Mortensen): This online prerecorded videos are thought to be an introduction of the main aspects dealing with Matlab, R and Python.

3 – INTERMEDIATE (Agnieszka Smolinska, Asmund Rinnan, Anna de Juan): This seminar includes 3 parts. DoE (Design of Experiments), VARSEL (variable selection methods) and MCR (Multivariate Curve Resolution). 5 days. 2.5 ECTS. 27 – 31 May 2024. From 9 am until 4 pm, with 1 hour lunch break.

4 – DEEP LEARNING (Jesper Løve Hinrich): This seminar is an introduction to non-linear methods and deep learning. 3 days. 1.5 ECTS. 3 – 5 June 2024. From 9 am until 4 pm, with 1 hour lunch break.

5 – CLASS (Davide Ballabio): The course will deal with the main linear classification methods like Discriminant Analysis, Partial Least Squares Discriminant Analysis (PLS-DA) and SIMCA. We will see both theoretical aspects and practical applications. The last two days will focus on more complex models like Support Vectors Machine, Random Forests and Self-Organized Maps Artificial Neural Networks. 4 days. 2 ECTS. 3 – 6 June 2024. From 9 am until 4 pm, with 1 hour lunch break.

6 – DATA FUSION (Federico Marini): Data Fusion is gaining extreme importance in science. This seminar is an introduction to the main methods to fuse your data. 2 days. 1 ECTS. 5 – 6 June 2024. From 9 am until 4 pm, with 1 hour lunch break.

7 – MULTIWAY (Beatriz Quintanilla): Methods like PARAFAC, PARAFAC2 and N-PLS will be taught. 1 day. 0.5 ECTS. 6 June 2024. From 9 am until 4 pm, with 1 hour lunch break.

8 – GLUE (José Manuel Amigo, Rasmus Bro, Federico Marini, Davide Ballabio): How NOT to Make Chemometrics and afternoon workshop to talk about your particular needs. 1 day. NO ECTS. 7 June 2024. From 9 am until 4 pm, with 1 hour lunch break.

Extremely important note: The last week, the seminars are simultaneous. Therefore:
– Attending DL means that you cannot sign up for CLASS and DF.
– Attending CLASS means that you cannot sign up for DL and DF.
– Attending DF means that you cannot sign up for DL, CLASS and MW.
– Attending MW means that you cannot sign up for CLASS and DF.
Despite this fact, attending any of the seminars of the last week will grant you access to the material of all the seminars of that week.

INTERMEDIATE – Intermediate topics on Chemometrics. DoE, Variable selection methods, Multivariate Curve Resolution

This seminar contains three general topics:

– DoE – Design of Experiments: The course gives an introduction to the Design of Experiments. The course will highlight the critical points to address when designing our experiments. Some classical designs will be discussed (Full Factorial, Plackett-Burman, Central Composite) together with more advanced approaches like D-Optimal Designs.

– VARSEL – Variable selection methods: In this one-day hands-on course on variable selection, you will become familiar with state-of-the-art variable selection. This will cover both classical, iterative, model-based and nature-inspired algorithms. I will also give you some pros and cons of the different methods, and some suggestions for how to operate them even better. The cases you will be working with can be done in R, Matlab (w/ wo PLS-toolbox) or python, all as you see fit. However, I only provide the necessary toolboxes for Matlab.

– MCR – Multivariate Curve Resolution: The module will address the theoretical description and hands-on application of Multivariate Curve Resolution (MCR). MCR is a multivariate resolution (unmixing) method that can provide the description of a multicomponent data set through a bilinear model of chemically meaningful profiles, e.g., when analyzing an HPLC-DAD data set, MCR would provide the real elution profiles and the related UV spectra for each compound in the sample. It has applications in diverse fields, such as process analysis, chromatographic data, hyperspectral images or environmental data, in any context where a mixture analysis problem can be encountered. MCR can be applied to a single data matrix or to multiset structures formed by blocks of different information (data fusion). The module focuses mainly on the algorithm MCR-ALS (Multivariate Curve Resolution-Alternating Least Squares), and hands-on work will be done using a dedicated free GUI interface adapted to MATLAB environment. Applications will cover many of the areas mentioned above.

Dates and timetable: 27th May – 31st of May. From 9 am until 4 pm (CET) with 1-hour lunch break (30 hours)

Previous knowledge needed: Basic multivariate data analysis and Matlab

Software needed: Feel free to work with Matlab, Python or R, or any other software that you consider (e.g. Unscrambler). The teachers will work with:
– Matlab
– PLS_Toolbox / SOLO. IMPORTANT: For the PLS_Toolbox / SOLO, a fully functional demo will be available for the School.
– MCR-ALS toolbox: MCR-ALS toolbox can be freely downloaded here:
– R Studio

Teachers: Agnieszka Smolinska (DoE), Asmund Rinnan (VARSEL), Anna de Juan (MCR).

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.


The price for participating is as follows (same price for online and physically present):

Academia: DKK 600 per ECTS (approx. EUR 81 / USD 98)
Industry: DKK 1500 per ECTS (aprox. EUR 200 / USD 245)
