SPEC 2020 - 11th International Conference on Clinical Vibrational Spectroscopy

Monterey, California, USA

May 17 - 22, 2020


Please see our COVID-19 announcement page for more information.

SPEC 2022 will be held in Dublin, Ireland: Spec2022.org

May 17-22, 2020

Welcome! SPEC 2020 is the 11th conference in the successful SPEC series, providing an occasion to both look back at the past two decades and to look forward at the next decade of translating vibrational spectroscopies into the clinic. SPEC 2020 will bring together research scientists and clinicians, from industry, academia, and medicine, to highlight and discuss recent advances in developing novel spectroscopic instrumentation and technologies to improve health and patient outcomes.

Vibrational spectroscopy has a unique capability to provide rich data which can be used for objective, real time, and minimally invasive tests. This information can play a critical role in cytology, histopathology, surgery, and therapeutic developments and treatments.

Keynote Speaker: Prof. Eric Betzig, 2014 Nobel Laureate

We look forward to sharing beautiful Monterey and the Northern California coast with you as the setting for a highly interactive and scientifically excellent conference.

New Abstract Deadline March 2nd

We discovered a technical problem in our mailer system that unintentionally delayed the sending of our first call for abstracts. Therefore we have extended our Abstract Submission Deadline to Monday, March 2, 2020. You will need to register first and then submit your abstract. Don't delay, make your submission today!

Mike Martin and Cynthia McMurray, Conference Chairs
