General Information

  • 19th Confocal Raman Imaging Symposium

  • The 19th Confocal Raman Imaging Symposium will take place from September 25 – 27, 2023. This annual event is a great opportunity for members of the international Raman microscopy community to catch up with each other and discuss the newest developments in technology and applications. We very much look forward to seeing you again in person, here in Ulm.

    The first two days of the Symposium will be held in the Stadthaus in the city center, right next to the famous Ulm Minster. Renowned scientists will present their research in oral presentations covering various fields of application. During the breaks and poster sessions, there will be plenty of time to share impressions of the presented Raman applications and interact with colleagues from around the world.

    On the third day of the event, we invite you to WITec headquarters and our conference area and demo labs that offer the ideal environment for in-depth discussions with both WITec team members and conference participants. Our WITec application scientists will demonstrate different Raman imaging technologies in action.
