Winter Schools

A winter school is organized each year in the ASC Master program, end of February or beginning of March, between the 1st and 2nd / 3rd and 4th semesters, to ensure that all students can attend.

It brings all ASC students of the first and second year in one location as a group. The topic will deepen one specific field of application of spectroscopy. Beside the scientific content, it is also a joint social event and an oportunity  for ASC students and alumni to exchange on their experience.

In 2016, ASC students participated in the IASIM conference in spectral imaging in Chamonix, France.
