Unity Scientific was proud to be a sponsor of NIR2015 in Foz do Iguazu, Brazil. Over 361 people from 37 countries joined together for a productive week filled with scientific and social exchanges. We would like to congratulate Dr. Celio Pasquini, UNICAMP and the rest of the organizing committee as well as Dr. Ana Garrido Varo and ICNIRS for an interesting and productive meeting.
Rob Gajewski, Dr. Paolo Berzaghi and Bob Schumann attended from Unity as well as Marcelo Goncalves from Instrulab, our distributor in Brazil.
Dr. Paolo Berzaghi and Bob Schumann presented a poster entitled "Optimizing PLS Predicting Models with Independent Validation Sets Rather Than Cross Validation" which descibed and illustrated the importance of using an independent validation set when evaluating calibration models. The poster is below.
