ICNIRS Membership

International Council of Near Infrared Spectroscopy

With less than one month until the next ICNIRS Conference (NIR-2011) in Cape Town (, I would like to invite you to inspect the revamped ICNIRS web site. You can also find detailed information about ICNIRS in the previous issue of NIR news (22/2, p. 18).

You are invited to support the international NIR community by paying your registration, which is only US$50 for two years! The funds raised will be used for NIR education (you will hear more about this in Cape Town and in upcoming issues of NIR news) and to spread the recognition and the use of NIR. I trust that you will register and pay on-line the two-year fee, hence becoming an official member of the international NIR community. Thank you in advance for your support, and do please spread the information to other NIR users.—Pierre Dardenne, ICNIRS Chairman
