IR Beamline ORANGE Data Analysis Workshop

Boardroom (NCSS)





ORANGE is a data mining and visualization package that has been developed at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. It has a wide range of applications, and recently, in collaboration with some infrared synchrotron beamlines in Europe, “add-on” packages specifically tailored for the analysis of infrared data have been added. At the Australian Synchrotron, we are keen to explore the potential of ORANGE to provide an intuitive tool for multivariate analysis of data that will benefit the beamline user community.

We are pleased to have ORANGE expert Marko Toplak as trainer for our workshop, and hope that the event will provide you, the attendees, with exposure to the potential of ORANGE for the analysis of your data.

To complement the primary focus of the ORANGE workshop, we will also include an update from Koman Tam (Bruker) on multivariate capabilities within the Bruker OPUS software.

The workshop will be held in the Boardroom of the NCSS building at the Australian Synchrotron and will start at 9:30 am on 25th September, with registration from 9:00 a.m. and finish around 3:00 pm on 26th.

Lunch on both days, and and evening buffet on the Tuesday evening will be held in the Synchrotron Cafe.
