International School of Chemometrics - ISC 2021
The International School of Chemometrics - ISC - 2021 edition is open!!!
ISC-2021 is what you need for learning Chemometrics. ISC-2021 is a five-week school designed to be an introduction to different key aspects of Data Science and Machine Learning in different brands of science (chemistry, food & feed, physics, environmental, political economics, etc).
ISC-2021 is open to everybody. ISC-2021 addresses to BSc, MSc, PhD students/post-docs, associate professors, etc. who want to acquire or refresh basic knowledge on multivariate data analysis from different disciplines. ISC-2021 is also addressed to researchers working in industry or research laboratories wanting to implement multivariate data analysis in their daily research environment.
ISC-2021 is an intensive school. ISC-2021 is held in five consecutive weeks structured in different seminars/modules where the students will be more than welcome to work with their own data together with high-qualified teachers.
Meeting worldwide recognized experts of Multivariate Data Analysis in an open discussion forum environment. ISC-2021 counts on teachers that are well-recognized experts on chemometrics and multivariate data analysis in their respective fields. This, at the same time, will offer the possibility of opening new collaborative frameworks between students and teachers.
CHOOSE YOUR OWN SCHOOL. ISC-2021 is modular. The students can choose to attend the seminars which they consider more relevant for their research. There is no minimum of seminars that the student must attend. Also, they will have the opportunity to dive into any multivariate method. In total, attending the whole school, one student can obtain up to 12 ECTS credits.
We are currently creating the official website at the University of Copenhagen. If you are interested to participate, send an e-mail to:
From the 31st of May until the 2nd of July, 2021.

ISC-2021 will offer TWO grants for students. The grant will cover the subscription fee for all the seminars. In order to apply for the grant, you need to send two documents to :
1) A paper that certifies that you are a student at any level (BSc, MSc or PhD student).
2) One page describing why you need to be at the School. How the School can be helpful in your research Times New Roman, 11 pt. with 1.5 line space).
The selection committee will be formed by Prof. Rasmus Bro and Prof. José Manuel Amigo. The announcement will be made no later than the end of April 2021.
Best Poster Award for physically present attendants!!!
In order to foment collaboration between us and interchange ideas, CSC-2021 will include different poster sessions. Therefore, I would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the school. The abstract and poster are intended to promote the interchange of ideas between us, students and teachers.
The work does NOT NEED to be original. It can be original or it could have been presented in another conference. It can perfectly be an abstract that expresses your worries or doubts about an experiment that you want to perform.
1) The abstract:
- It should not be longer than 2 A4 pages, including figures, tables and references.
- The language must be English and formatted in Times New Roman, 11 pt. with 1.5 line space.
- It must be submitted in pdf
2) The poster:
- It must be in A3 size. I know that this is not a normal size for a poster. Nevertheless, we have very limited extra space.
Best poster award: The best poster will be chosen among the participants. The winner will receive a diploma and an award (a good one :). Depending on the number of posters presented, there might be one or two runner-ups. They will receive a diploma and some other surprises.
The jury will be formed by the students who participate in the whole school. The deadline to submit your abstract to will be the day before starting the School (31st of May, 2021).
