On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to invite you to join us at the 20th biennial meeting of the International Council for NIR Spectroscopy (ICNIRS), to be held from October 17th to 21st 2021 in Beijing, China. ICNIRS2021 will provide an international forum for scientists, engineers, and postgraduate students to exchange and discuss new ideas, new findings, and new technologies for NIR spectroscopy and related areas.
The slogan of ICNIRS2021 in Beijing is“Sense the Real Change”, meaning that we will sense the various spectral information of NIR, the development of spectral theory and chemometrics, the enhanced performance of instruments and measurement accessories. We also hope that every participant can personally sense the real changes in China, including the historical charm and modern atmosphere. And you can feel the passion of Chinese near-infrared researchers for NIR spectroscopy.
The theme of the conference is indicated by the logo, which is “Rainbow: Diversity, Optimization, and Inspiration”. The rainbow in the logo represents the spectrum, as well as the famous Chinese dragon. The dancing dragon signifies that NIR is taking off in the international technological arena, playing an increasingly important role in agriculture, food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries, and people's daily lives.
We hope that the NIR 2021 will make a great contribution to accelerate the advance of NIR technology through constructing a strong human network for NIR Spectroscopy in the world, and that you all will enjoy your stay in the wonderful city of Beijing, China.
We hope you can join us for this exciting event, and we look forward to seeing you all in Beijing in 2021.
