Course on Chemometrics for Cultural Heritage - Level 1
Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA
October 31 - November 1, 2013
9am - 5pm

Target Audience: This introductory is aimed at researchers and
conservators who want to be able to analyze their own laboratory
data, and with a need for exploratory data analysis, development of
predictive models and sample classification. No prior knowledge is
required for this course.

Course Description: The course will cover the fundamentals of many
commonly used Chemometric methods including Exploratory Data
Analysis and Pattern Recognition, Regression and Classification
Methods (PCA, PLS, SIMCA,PLS-DA...) and Data Pretreatment. Emphasis
will be on applying these techniques in the context of cultural
heritage research.

The course will comprise lectures and hands-on activities. Computers
will not be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring their
laptops with demo versions of Solo installed. A 60 days demo license
will be provided by Eigenvector to each participant.

About the Instructor: Dr. Donald Dahlberg is Professor Emeritus of
Chemistry at Lebanon Valley College.  Dahlberg earned a B.S. in
Chemistry from the University of Washington and a Ph.D. in Physical
Chemistry from Cornell University. After decades of doing research
in the area of Physical Organic Chemistry, he got involved in
Chemometrics while on sabbatical in 1988 at the Center for Process
Analytical Chemistry at the University of Washington.  There he
learned Chemometrics in the Bruce Kowalski group (co-founder of
Chemometrics).  Upon returning to LVC, he taught Chemometrics to
undergraduate students for over a decade.  Although retired from the
classroom, he continues do consulting and supervises undergraduate
research in industrial Chemometrics. He wrote and teaches this
workshop so that those not fluent in matrix algebra can take
advantage of the powerful tool of Chemometrics.

How to Register: A registration form can be requested by email to
