CHANCE seminar: Advanced Classification Methods - 22.02.2012
The Chemometric Analysis Center (CHANCE) organizes a series of seminars
about the theory and use of chemometrics. The 3rd seminar
is on April 23rd and 24th and is entitled:
Advanced Classification Methods
This seminar is focused on the theory and practice of some of the advancedclassification methods for Pattern Recognition, to give a practitioner idea about their main features and uses.
The seminar will be based on teaching hours with guided exercises and practical sessions with real cases. The main topics will be:
- Recall of some basic concepts of classification.
- ANN (Artificial Neural Networks) and their use in Pattern Recognition.
- SVM (Support Vector Machines).
When: 23-24 April.
Where: R-437. 4th floor of the main building at LIFE Faculty. Rolighedsvej 30, DK-1958.
Teacher: Dr. Federico Marini, University of Rome, Italy, is a world expert in chemometrics. He is specialized, among other issues, in classification, ANN and other nature-inspired methods.
Timetable: the course will last 11 hours. Monday: 9 a.m.-12 a.m and 1 p.m-5 p.m; Tuesday: 9 a.m.-12 a.m.
Pre-requirements: The course is addressed to PhD students/post-docs, associate professors, etc, who want to acquire more knowledge about classification methodologies. Therefore it is advisable to have previous knowledge about Principal Component Analysis (PCA), Partial Least Squares (PLS) and basic classification.
Material needed: MATLAB and your own laptop.
Registration deadline: Wednesday, 7th of April, 2012, by email to associate professor José Manuel Amigo (
Registration fee: The seminar is FREE for everyone. There is no subscription fee. Nevertheless, there will be a fee of 500 DKR fee for not attending when enrolled.
