Plenary speakers

eilers Paul Eilers
Paul Eilers is emeritus professor in genetical statistics. Originally he was trained in electronics, but wandered into many other fields: environmental problems, medical statistics, social statistics, genomics and, of course, chemometrics. For him the common theme is the meaningful analysis of complex data; he loves statistical computation and the development of efficient and useful algorithms

Uncommon penalties for common problems
maeder Marcel Maeder
MM studied chemistry in Basel, Switzerland, where he completed his PhD on kinetics of coordination compounds. This research primed his interest in hard modelling, but Marcel has also been very active developing soft modelling methods, EFA being the most prominent. Some 30 years ago Marcel emigrated to Newcastle in Australia where he has been an active chemist without losing his interest in chemometrics.

olivieri Alejandro Olivieri
Born in Rosario, Argentina, 07/28/1958. B.Sc. Argentinean Catholic University, 1982, Ph.D. National University of Rosario, 1986. Currently full professor in the Department of Analytical Chemistry and fellow of the National Research Council of Argentina (CONICET). Ca. 200 scientific papers, several books and book chapters, and nine supervised Ph.D. theses. John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellow in 2001-2002.

Recent advances in the estimation of multivariate/multiway analytical figures of merit
beata Beata Walczak
From the early 90’s Prof. Beata Walczak has been involved in chemometrics and her main scientific interests are in all aspects of data exploration and modelling (dealing with missing and censored data, dealing with outliers, data representativity, enhancement of instrumental signals, signal warping, data compression, linear and non-linear projections, development of modeling approaches, feature selection techniques etc.). She authored and co-authored ca. 160 scientific papers and delivered many invited lectures at the numerous international chemistry meetings. She acted as an co-editor of four-volume Comprehensice Chemometrics, Elsevier, Amsterdam, 2009. Currently she acts as Editor of the journal Chemometrics and Intelligent Laboratory Systems and of ‘Data Handling in Chemistry and Technology’ (the Elsevier book series), and also as a member of the editorial boards of Talanta, Analytical Letters, J. Chemometrics, Acta Chromatographica and Advances in Analytical Chemistry.

wentzell Peter D. Wentzell
Peter Wentzell is Professor of Chemistry at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He obtained his BSc from Dalhousie University in 1982 and his PhD from Michigan State University in 1987. His research in chemometrics emphasizes the role of measurement errors and maximum likelihood methods in multivariate analysis. Recent recognitions include the 2013/14 Kowalski Prize from in the Journal of Chemometrics and the 2015 Award for Outstanding Achievements in Chemometrics from the Eastern Analytical Symposium.

amigo José M. Amigo
He obtained his PhD (Cum Laude) in Chemistry from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain. Since 2007 he has been employed at the Department of Food Science, Spectroscopy and Chemometrics group of the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Current research interests include hyperspectral and digital image analysis, and their implementation in Food and Forensic Sciences and Pharmaceutical production. He has authored more than 100 publications (75+ peer-reviewed papers, books, book chapters, proceedings, etc.) and given more than 40 conferences at international meetings. Jose has supervised or is currently supervising several Masters, Post Docs and PhD students. He is the editor in-chief of the chemistry section of "MethodsX" and he is editorial board member of "Chemometrics and Intelligent Laboratory Systems" and "Analytica Chimica Acta", among others. Moreover, he has received the "2014 Chemometrics and Intelligent Laboratory Systems Award".
