More information to be published here shortly.

 

 

  

 

 

PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS

 

 

As a pre-conference activity we have the pleasure in offering complimentary workshops to learn more about Batch Modeling and Design of Experiments. The workshops will be half-day sessions aiming to introduce you to these topics.

 

DATE & TIME
We will start at 12:00 with lunch and finish around 17:00 on the 30th of May, and we will hold the two workshops in parallel. Afterwards we wish to invite the participants to a traditional Scottish pub evening with a great informal opportunity to get insights from peers and our accomplished speakers. The evening event is optional and at your own expense.

 

 

DOE SIMPLIFIED: HALF-DAY WORKSHOP
This dynamic half-day workshop will open your eyes to the power of design of experiments and demonstrate the tools you need to achieve breakthrough improvements in your processes and create superior products. The presentation is geared to experimenters with minimal statistical background. The presenters take a fresh and lively approach to introducing the fundamentals of highly efficient multifactor testing and powerful data analysis.

 

Trainer: Mark Anderson, Stat-Ease, Inc.

 

 

BATCH ANALYSIS BEST PRACTICES: HALF-DAY WORKSHOP
Batch Modeling is a common approach in manufacturing and until now it has been done with an approximate method to deal with relative time differences. CAMO has developed an innovative approach to have a more exact approach and ultimately get a better analysis and modeling. Frank Westad has been responsible for the development of the method and will share his learnings and best practices.

 

Trainer: Dr Frank Westad, CAMO Software

 

Please REGISTER for the workshops as a part of the CAMO Futures registration. The number of seats are limited and customers and partners will be given priority.

Dr Jean-Michel Roger, Researcher for IRSTEA, UMR ITAP
Jean-Michel Roger is a Rural & Forestry Engineer from AgroParisTech school. In 1995, he obtained his PhD in bioprocess sciences, specializing in data processing and knowledge management. In 1998 he joined the team of Pr Véronique Bellon-Maurel who studied NIR spectrometry for agro-food products. He has developed chemometrics methods for the design of embedded and hand-held NIR sensors and been involved in many European projects dedicated to fruit quality assessment (SHIVA, VISHNU, GLOVE, ISAFRUIT).
Dr Frank Westad, Chief Scientific Officer, CAMO Software
Frank has served as a Research Scientist at SINTEF, Consultant with IDT GmbH (Germany), Application Specialist with CAMO and Senior Research Scientist at the Norwegian Food Research Institute (MATFORSK) and GE Healthcare.
